The ‘Sliced Porosity Block’ will house commercial offices, luxury residential apartments, retail stores, a hotel, cafes and a plethora of restaurants within five towers and a multi-level plaza.

This high-performance building will integrate green strategies in heating, cooling, lighting and materials to attain an LEED Gold Certification.

The ‘Green’ design is meant to draw natural daylight into the plaza where three ponds play multiple roles, including skylights to a six-story retail space below. The eccentric shapes of the towers allow vertical space to be filled within this urban setting without blocking daylight from neighboring buildings. Within the voids of the staggered construction, three pavilions will create distinct spaces, each created by a different architect.

A great urban terrace on the scale of Rockefeller Center, this multi-level plaza in the center of the complex is sculpted by stone steps, ramps, trees and ponds and caters to special events or to a casual afternoon in the sun. Here the public space parallax of overlapping geometries in strict black and white is supercharged by color that glows from the shops positioned underneath the plaza.

The ‘Sliced Porosity Block’ will use a geo-exchange system to heat and cool the buildings. Ponds within the plaza will harvest rainwater and provide habitat for natural water vegetation, which will help moderate and cool ambient temperatures. The buildings will use high-performance glazing, energy-efficient equipment and locally sourced materials.

Construction is expected to be completed by last quarter of 2010.
