Spread across its elevation, the tower begins with public amenities at the podium levels, hotel section and residential apartments. The tower’s crown hosts a double-height rooftop bar and mechanical spaces. The design prioritizes expansive open-air terraces providing stunning views of the bay and surrounding landscape.
