To be built on a 10,000-m2 former brownfield site, the development will include skyscrapers and 25,000 m2 of office space, 800 housing units and 20,000 m2 of retail. Architect David Adjaye, who designed a 100-m-tall (or roughly 30-story) residential tower for the project, called it "truly transformative," featuring massive public terraces and using mostly renewable or reclaimed energy.
