The project of building towers in the downtown of Amman is a real challenge :

               - The city has a very strong unity and character;

               - There are no towers till now ;

               - The concentration of the trafic has to be carefully organized ...

Thus, we do believe that the construction should not compromise with any of the existing buildings. The low-rise podium covered with traditional Jordanian stone cladding will ensure the continuity with urban texture. As for the towers:

               - It has to be an a-typical building working has a major landmark,

               - It must be representative of its position and function : communication between people

               - It has to be a powerful symbol of the Jordanian dynamism and of its involvement in the future

Besides, we would like this landmark to be in the same time the evidence of the commitment of the country in favour of sustainable development
