The large-scale office development, a joint venture between two large investment and development companies, involves the conversion of a rarely available 1.8 hectare city-centre site, into 2 office towers with a total area in excess of 200,000m², extensive commercial facilities and a generous landscaped public space.
The office towers (28, and 75 storeys respectively) are sculpted to complement the varied site constraints, maximise solar shading, while facilitating natural daylight for every desk within the generous office floor-plates.
Construction of the 53,000m² phase 1 building commenced in 2013, and opened in early 2019.
The building is elevated upon slim core structures within the densely planted landscape. With a minimal footprint, these ‘legs’ contain the majority of the building’s efficient technical plant, which enables the creation of a generous public spaces on the roof.
The building has obtained LEED Platinum certification, the highest globally recognised sustainability achievement, in May 2019.
ToHa1 was awarded the 2021 CTBUH Award for Excellence.
