The site incorporates a commercial center in the ground floor, a protected tenancy structure with 260 apartments and an office building.
There is also a nursing floor in the building that functions as a hospital with separate entrances. There was a bit of a divergence while planning the site. On one hand, there was an idea of incorporating clean and uniform fronts while on the other hand there was a desire to create a cozy atmosphere. Therefore, wood was incorporated in the building's façade to bestow warmth. Three parking basements provide the building with parking places for 1200 vehicles.
