Each individual honeycomb is a parcel with several horizontal slats as floors that can hold different units. The massive tower has enough space to essentially act as its own city, with parcels being used as residences, offices, parks, retail space. The building will even house a police station, a fire station and a school.


Between the geometric shapes are vertical, angular streets that provide connection between the different floor plates. In designing the building, Hahn discovered that in designing streets for the structure, a series of hexagons provided the best flow.

Therefore, the building’s individual parcels are all roughly hexagonal in shape.
