The building is designed as part of an ideal sphere that envelops the square of the three towers ad has been designed to accommodate offices. The tower is characterized by its curved shape, with its prismatic vertical distribution core, which partly comes out of the shape.

It has a height of 175.5 meters for a total of 34 levels and 33,500 square meters of surface.

The distinctive sign of the building is the “crown” in steel and high glass 40 meters high on its top, a dome segment inspired by those of the Italian Renaissance, which summarizes the spherical concept of the entire building. Inside there are air conditioning systems and a rainwater recycling system
