With the rich green of the Shiba Park in the backdrop, this tower residence stands with its own rich greenery within its premises, made possible by the large open public spaces planned around the building for the neighborhoods' use. A sense of class is brought to the pubic spaces, which include the two-story atrium at the lobby and the library lounge for exclusive use of its residents. The tower is a steel structure with an active mass damper on the rooftop, which counters sways despite its very slender proportion.
