Together with the Viennese architects office Hoffmann & Janz the French architect Dominique Perrault designed an ensemble comprising two high-rise buildings beside the Donau at the very heart of the new Viennese Business District. The first tower reaches a height of 220 m, the second tower (that still has to be built) will measure 168 m. The roof area of the tower is inclined by approx. 7°. It is built on top of an underground structure serving as a car park.
