It consists of two buildings joined at the base. The ground floor is retail, the whole of the tall tower is office, and the small one houses a Jury's Inn hotel. It was originally intended to be one 43 meter tall 11 story tower, but this was later increased to two towers, one of which is at the original height, and the other at 67m tall and with 17 overground floors. It was placed on hold in January 2009 due to the economic climate worsening, with the Jury's Inn hotel tower complete and foundations dug for the office block.
