The project has a very unique characteristic due its location. It is next to the Sports Palace, an arena frequently used for concerts, and the Velodromo Subway Station. Now the link between both spots is broken due a lack of pedestrian walkways, on the other hand there a high demand for parking space that is not satisfied by the parking offered by the Sport Palace.
That is why this project pretends to create this connection needed from the station to the arena, and at the same time offers areas for commerce, restaurants and cafes. Furthermore the building will provide more than 400 underground parking spaces and 2.18 Acres of green spaces and public areas.
The shape of the building is the result of urban analysis whereby the people who visits the arena can get there throughout green spaces within the corridor / building and away from the car traffic. The commercial area of the building is provided with natural ventilation, illumination and great views to the urban landscape offered by the plazas created.
