The site of the AND Tower is closely located to the new financial district on the Asian part of the city. Although the height of the building, which is being constructed on a 10,600 square metres estate, is restricted to 116 metres, the vertical character of the business centre is emphasised and highlighted by the split-tower design. The striking long-distance impact of the building, with its light and shadow effects, is a product of the block by block, every two to three storeys alternating triangular façade pillars. The tower with its three-storey base structure accommodating commercial space will integrate seamlessly into the urban context. The façade that faces away from the adjacent highway will form an urban plaza, a feature still rare in this area. Along with the offices and commercial units, almost half of the total GFA of 73,300 square metres – including a conference centre, a canteen and a four-storey car park with space for 740 vehicles – is accommodated in the underground storeys. The steel reinforced concrete supporting structure, with an 8.10 metre grid, enables each floor to be split in up to four separate units. The two-storey “villages” that are arranged in front of each level of the tower serve as rest and communication zones for the building’s users.
