The design draws inspiration from the aphorism of “setting sail”. It assimilates the buildings into the plot and the river in a sailboat form, emblematic of a riding wave of prosperity. Bifurcated by the river, the land is tenanted with 5 office towers, ingeniously laid out to secure permeability and maximise views to the Qiantang River. Two towers on the North are connected by a 3-storey retail podium. Three towers are organized along a green spine of vertically networked platforms, by way of providing breakout spaces for office users.
