3.     Building plan

The three sides of the building facing Sannomiya Center-gai, Tor Road, and Hyogo Prefectural Road 21 will feature a glass curtain wall exterior. The plan also includes external lighting to enhance visibility from the immediate vicinity, showcase the complex as a prime location to enjoy walking and shopping around in town, and contribute to nighttime scenery and other activities. Inside, the compact design of the building’s elevators and stairways will minimize obstruction and a pillar-less floor plan will increase the level of freedom tenants will have in their shop layouts.
