The varied building shapes create a series of apartment types. At ground level a number of 2 story townhouses are integrated into the volume of the varied triangular buildings, while penthouses are located within the ‘peaks’, or pointed spires. . Penthouse apartments are located within the stunning peaks of the building. Balconies feature glass changes in gradations of deep blue at the base to transparent at the top in keeping with the color of an iceberg. A mix of apartments with different balconies, shapes and orientations ensure an urban living environment with social diversity.

The inauguration is scheduled for May.
