In 2014 45 new high rise buildings were under construction, where as in 2015 that figure has seen a 56% rise to 70; 89% of these towers were residential.

This drive towards taller building design is a direct reflection on the capitals need for more concentrated yet luxury living spaces.

By using sensibly managed construction techniques and high quality design residential spaces within these high rise towers can be spacious, bright and open plan.
