This multi-purpose building accommodating both office and residential vertical sectors is unique in this country.

Placed on the adjacent waterfront site to “Riverside Centre”, “Riparian Plaza” is higher and larger in extent in that it continues the promenade along the river and adds more facilities for the public, restaurants, plazas and covered seating at the water’s edge.

The shape of the tower has been carefully formed to maximise the outlook for occupants up and down the river. The bottom section houses cars, the middle section accommodates column-free offices and the reshaped top consists of luxurious penthouses, each of which has large curvilinear, projecting terraces facing the water, shaped to allow for the comfortable placement of furniture.
