The design is made so it will not affect the area’s ecosystem or the fishing industry. It will protect nine kilometers of mangroves, 10 kilometers of shallow coves, and 250 hectares of shallow-water sea grass.
It will feature many sustainable strategies to keep it ecofriendly, such as a rooftop network of parks and gardens, as well as pedestrian-friendly spaces, natural habitats, and storm water filtering systems. The design of the buildings themselves is to combine iconic architecture with sustainable design principles.
