The inspiration for this scheme came from nature; and more specifically, water and the behavior of fish schools in the ocean. The flowing movement of water derived into the plan and elevations for this scheme; while the fish provided an idea for the windows and the building's skin treatment.

The project consists of a podium connecting three towers. The 1,000,000 square feet podium will house a casino and areas like upscale retail, restaurants, spas, a natural sand beach with salt water and wave replication and all services. The main tower will house upscale retail and private residences while the secondary towers will be used for hospitality and retail; all of this in about 1,400,000 sq. ft.
