the 40,000 square meter project will anchor the development of the new region of kirchberg, a district that houses the majority of the city’s european institutions. the 27-storey complex will be the country’s tallest, comprising a mix of retail, residential and office programs. the design concept includes two green roofs that fold organically to connect the twin residential towers with the adjacent office structure. as well as creating a new public plaza and tram station, the scheme will connect the adjacent european court of justice with the philharmonie luxembourg.
