The Project is strategically located on GST Road in Tambaram, in the midst of the transportation hub of Tambaram Railway Station and Bus stand and at close proximity to the Chennai Byepass road. The Site property is linear and trapezoidal and therefore the building takes the similar form in plan. The Building is a 5 storied building with 3 Basements to satisfy the local parking norms.

The suburb can boast of its first Mall with anchor shops and other retail including a 4 screen multiplex, food court and a vast gaming zone. The Building has a large central atrium flanked by shops. The retail outlets are at the Ground and upper two floors. The food court is located on the third floor. The Multiplex is located at the third and fourth floor levels. Adequate entry /exits and vertical transportation are located strategically to provide for easy access during peak traffic and in case of emergency.

The façade was developed interestingly with projections and recesses of solid mass and coloured glass to create visual interest. The orientation of the Site was also considered while designing the façade so that good thermal insulation is achieved. The coloured glass of red, blue, green and yellow makes the building resemble a rubik’s cube though it does not form a cube. When lit inside, after dark, the building will create a sense of vibrancy when viewed from both inside and outside.
