Structural Features

  • The building’s exterior is wrapped in a striking “diagrid” constructed of exposed cast-in-place, mild-reinforced concrete columns that were carefully coordinated with the architectural vision to create the facade’s diamond pattern.
  • Visible concrete construction joints and intersections with other structural elements were thoughtfully detailed to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound result.
  • The cast-in-place concrete tower includes three subterranean parking levels designed using one-way slab system spanning to mild reinforced beams and post-tensioned girders.
  • The hotel floors are designed with flat plate post-tensioned concrete slabs spanning 32 feet.
