Thornton Tomasetti is providing structural engineering and façade engineering services for a signature three-tower high-rise, mixed-use development on the Mediterranean coast in Limassol, Cyprus.
This mixed-use development consists of three reinforced concrete towers, connected by a multi-level podium structure. The 170-meter tall West Tower contains commercial, residential and amenities, including a spa and gym. A unique and slender sky terrace structure has been engineered to cantilever 18 meters from the tower structure, providing open-air, elevated views of the Mediterranean. Careful consideration was given to occupant comfort under wind and floor-induced vibration for the Sky Terrace. The 160-meter East Tower contains residential and amenity floors. The 155-meter North Tower consists of residential floors and contains duplex apartments at the tower’s mid-height. Residential units in all towers feature balconies cantilevering more than three meters from the building.
Special detailing of the reinforcement in the concrete wall lateral systems was utilized to provide adequate ductility in the resistance of seismic events, which are being considered in the design. The interconnected podium structure contains two levels of below-grade parking on the site’s south end, in addition to two below-grade and three above-grade levels of parking on the north end. The upper levels of the podium feature space for retail and extensive landscaping and a large amenity pool.
The project, when completed, will be one of the largest developments on the Mediterranean coast.
