· Its unique needle-like form makes it seem impossibly slender, in order to appear delicate on the skyline.
· The tower is designed to appear split (north/South) along its centre. This makes the building feel taller than thinner thus reducing the apparent bulk of the building
· “TectonicEyelids” capture the light and direct occupant views towards the street, away from buildings
· OverallBrick Cladding/ Fenestration system with glazing and solid panels behind

· Green spaces integrated throughout including a roof terrace with fantastic views overthe city, a play area on the 11th floor and shared play garden on the ground floor
