And the Car Park has a Fountain feature as the showpiece and which is located in visual axis with the entry/exit door. The lower garden has several landscape elements and includes the infinity pool, spa, entertainment center and yoga pavilion which overlooks the river. All species of plants and trees will be native and all flat roofs will be green roofs.
