The 27,000m 2 of P-grade office space is housed in two linked towers constructed on a landscaped podium. The project is situated diagonally opposite the Gautrain Station and directly opposite the entrance to the Michelangelo Hotel, Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square. Designed by Paragon Architects, the project consists of a 10-storey North Tower and 14-storey South Tower which will be targeting a 4-5 Star Greenstar Rating and houses a prominent international legal practice in approximately 50% of the building, along with one or more other tenants. This development offers 1,400 parking bays within its eight basements, seven of which are below ground. Streetscape The development not only aims to enhance the internal and external environment for the tenant and visitor, but also to enrich its urban environment. Accordingly, the street edge is activated by a coffee shop, a convenient and beneficial addition to the bustling pedestrian route between the Gautrain Station and the hub of Sandton. The design aims to sensitively merge the streetscape with the commercial zone by means of a meandering landscaped journey from pavement to podium level. The experiential approach beneath a canopy of trees and over cascading water features is carried from street edge, to landscaped podium, through the enclosed glass atrium and reception and out towards the open lifestyle deck to the east side of the building.
