Tilted panels allow natural light to flow throughout the interior, and all office spaces can be naturally ventilated through operable windows. The façade elements will remain flexible so that they can accommodate more energy-efficient technology as it is developed. As it stands, the building is anticipated to generate more energy that it will consume, and the surplus energy will be sold back to the grid.

In addition to office space, Town Town will feature event spaces, conference rooms, a sky lobby with roof terraces, and a sky lounge with a gallery offering panoramic view of the Danube.
