60-story, 126,000-m² (1.36-million-ft²) office tower with an additional 38,000 m² (409,028 ft²) of parking in 5 below-grade levels. The project features two 9-story prismatic-shaped lobbies (at the top and bottom of the building), with four canopies cantilevering 8.4 m (27.5 ft). The lobbies are accented by perimeter structural elements that spiral the building, providing support and architectural interest. MKA’s design required 40 percent less steel than similar projects under construction.
