The tower will sit near the Qian Jiang River in the new city center, measuring in at 99 meters so as not to overwhelm its neighbors. While modest in size, the 22 story tower is not so in terms of design. The top mezzanine will host a sky garden and VIP accommodations, the construction also calls for local materials, and the building will reuse its grey water. The design is derived from the traditional Chinese ‘dua’ vessel, which features a slender base and enlarged body that symbolizes wealth, dignity and stability.
