The building is commissioned by the Mirax group, one of the most important real estate investors in Russia. Mirax is acting worldwide and is also responsible for the highest building in Europe, the Federation Tower in Moscow, which is currently under construction.
The investor had been specifically looking for a Western (German) architect, to take full advantage of the reputation of German engineering in all of the CIS, but also to establish a different design language.
Both high-rise buildings are located in an inner-city valley. Office floors are designed according to western standards (class A), and will be organised in various patterns (open space, individual cells, think tanks and spacious conference areas).
Beside of these office spaces, a five-story shopping mall with sport facilities, pool and restaurants will be integrated, as well as 6 subterranean parking floors.
The mall will be positioned between both towers, forming a connecting link between the two. On the 41st to the 42nd floor, sky bars are foreseen, offering panoramic views across the city.
The upper floors of the high-rise buildings are reserved for high-end luxurious condominiums with a top quality fit-out. All of them are offering individual roof terraces.

The footprint of the towers describes two segments of a circle, which are, slightly shifted, grouped around a central elevator and staircase lobby.
A similar vivid figure is described in the vertical: Staggered floors and the curvature of the facades are creating a dynamic impression.

Both towers are accessed via a spacious, two-story, 12 m high atrium.
The façade features mainly glass elements, a fact which is not at all common in Kiev’s architecture. Both towers offer helicopter landings on their rooftops.

Beside of the usual western energy standards, special attention is given to geothermic energy.
