The 116-apartment complex features asymmetrical front and rear towers conjoined by a lobby area complete with a gymnasium, a 25m indoor swimming pool and other amenities. With sculptured balconies jutting out at alternating angles on different levels, the glass façade draws the eye. Equipped with motorised louvre windows, the balconies allow ultimate flexibility of use for apartment owners.
