Kowloon Bay businesses are trying to leave behind their sullied manufacturing past with projects like this extraordinary 28 storey office tower on 18 Kowloon East. Designed by Aedas Architecture, the mixed-use development complete with office, retail, and parking space looks like any other shining tower except that its zigzagged carpark at the base of the building is covered in bushes!
We’re not 100% what other green features have been incorporated into this design, but give credence to Aedas for attempting to influence a greening trend in the Kowloon Bay area with this incredible project. The bushy carpark is not only aesthetically pleasing, but controls the air quality and absorbs carbon emissions . Ahh, we are already breathing easier seeing so much green. How about you?
