The exterior will be clad in distinctive, contemporary black and gold aluminium panels, transforming the building into a recognisable landmark standing out amongst its neighbours. Landscape Architects have thoughtfully designed both the plaza at the entrance of the building and the show-stopping roof gardens with breathtaking city views.
