Design of the two towers and the small banquet building in between took reference from the totem of two dragons chasing for a pearl which symbolises good fortune and happiness in ancient Chinese myths.

The towers portray a sense of strength and power with a façade that shimmers under the sun; while the banquet building looks like an exquisite pearl.

The podium design echoes the nearby Lotus Bridge. It resembles a blooming lotus flower with ‘lotus leaves’ wrapping around the shopping centre and lining up the retail streets.
