The tower is a slender, simple, efficient shaft, and only has embellishments at the ground level and the crown. The views toward Burj Khalifa are maximized ensuring that 80% of the units get a view.
The terraced townhouses are covered by green roofs which provide a friendly elevated park realm for the residents. The project ties into the water taxi network, and incorporates new stops.
The project is not standalone, but rather integrated into the flows of pedestrians and water traffic. The resulting layout integrates seamlessly into the canal promenade, and activates the main pedestrian corridors through a range of activities.
