Approximately 40 per cent of the towers have been dedicated for residential use, 35 per cent for exclusive office use, 15 per cent mixed use office and residential towers and the rest as hotels, serviced apartments and other mixes. Four towers within the development will offer hotel facilities, and four towers are earmarked as serviced apartments in part.
