The clus­ter of the Iconic tower is the fea­ture el­e­ment and is con­ceived as a clas­si­cal el­lip­ti­cal shape, lend­ing it­self to flow­ing pe­riph­eral bal­conies. Man­i­fest­ing as a sleek 100-m high cylin­dri­cal tower with an ex­pan­sive view of the Ganges and the Kan­pur ur­ban-scape, the re­sult­ing form en­joys stun­ning views of the green­ery.

An el­e­vated plinth en­ve­lope wraps around the tow­ers and acts as a stilt area. Ex­tend­ing as a mul­ti­func­tional space at some places, this adds flu­id­ity and flex­i­bil­ity in the de­sign. The pa­tios flow through the club­house lead­ing from en­trance lobby of in­di­vid­ual tow­ers and wind through the club spa­ces all the way up to the swim­ming pool. The land­scape is con­cep­tu­al­ized as a whole in­stead of in­di­vid­ual patches, thereby wrap­ping the tow­ers around the cen­tral green. Im­pec­ca­ble de­sign, finest global fit­tings and fin­ishes, fire safety mea­sures, earth­quake-re­sis­tant construction, dis­abled-friendly com­mon spa­ces and bath­rooms and ad­vanced se­cu­rity sys­tems are its unique fea­tures. Pe­riph­eral walls are con­structed to pre­vent wa­ter seep­age, bet­ter in­su­la­tion and safety. A large ve­hi­cle-free podium area adds to the se­cure en­vi­rons.
