Eight-story edifice running along the south perimeter next to the busy road. Although a multifunctional building, most of the floor space will be given over to offices for administrative, commercial and top management functions.

A ten-storey building (B+G+8) with a total of 15,000 m2 of gross built-up area with five articulated planar sets up of building parts imitating train cars is built with only one seismic joint that runs from the first floor to the roof of the eighth floor.
