Canada-based Burka Architects is the architect for the entire development.

The steel and glass clad high-rise is being developed by Fernbrook Homes and Cityzen Development Group.

According to Burka Architects, the tower's floor plans are designed to rotate as the building rises from the ground, giving the tower a playful shape that changes from every angle.
