On Lot 40, we are building a striking mixed-use building complex that provides attractive space for offices, shops and services at the base. Above this, the residential floors are built in such a way that the park-like roof of the base forms a quiet, green inner courtyard for the residents. The interplay of different heights and window openings creates an exciting, rhythmic structure and at the same time ensures a strong urban character.
