With its three interconnected mixed-use glass towers, a height of 150m, the complex built in 2013 is designed as a vertical city, as wide as a football pitch, with 68,000sq.m. of office space, a 278-room hotel, shops, restaurants, flats and a 642-space car park.
Designed by the architect Rem Koolhaas, the complex is used by 5,000 people a day.
