a 60-foot-tall (18m) glass screen wall envelopes the open-air terrace with custom-made wooden planters providing a place to relax under white oak trees. the terrace is part of the tower’s newly unveiled suite of amenities, dubbed ‘skytop’. the terrace is flanked by two indoor event spaces: a lounge and a private dining room. the lounge includes intimate seating, while the dining room boasts a catering kitchen and bar and a dining table that seats up to 18 guests. take a closer look at the building with a series of VR tours here.
