One of the greenest office buildings in the business district, it is decked with greenery on every floor, and crowned with unique wind funnels on the rooftop, channeling air into a void to help cool the ACMV system in the building. A large proportion of the double-skin building façade is covered with living green plants to reduce heat gain.

In spite of working within a tight site and the close proximity to train tunnels, innovative technologies and design-and-build methodology helped to shorten the construction time. For the first time, extra-large, 3.5 metre diameter bored piles are used, making critical foundation work more efficient.
