The tower contains various programs aimed at promoting the region’s heritage and natural amenities. It sits at the edge of the Anning River and will mark the transition between the new urban development to the north and the sustainable development, which includes reclaimed wetlands, leisure and agricultural districts, to the south. The design focuses on utilizing natural and mechanical means of filtration to produce clean water, converting a highly polluted river into a usable amenity for residents and visitors. This new amenity takes the form of a series of lakes, wetlands and waterways which lend form to the new districts in the master plan, tower co-designed with Studio Shift. Master plan with SWA Group, Los Angeles.
