The Architectural Vision for Building 17: Conveys a distinct architectural language driven by strong horizontal banding, fluid curving forms and layering of texture and materials. The use of inboard balconies creates natural indentations in the length of the facade, provides articulation and breaks down the bulk and scale of the building.

The layering of vertical feature elements creates an expressive design response that connects the tower to the podium and ground. – Development application
