The MotorCity design offers visual transparency and incorporates the fundamentals of smart building design. MotorCity is a development that features a mix of residential, hotel, and office buildings, with associated amenities and parking. The development includes a 32-storey office tower and a 28-storey hotel; the F1-X Theme Park; the ‘Turn Complex’, a unique auto showcase concourse; a full range of office space, including free-standing towers and linked streetscape structures; and a complete range of residential properties. The building blocks are radially arrayed around lush central courtyards that infuse vibrancy into both work and home settings. The fenestrations are intelligently designed to welcome natural ventilation while keeping out the harsh sun. Intricately detailed landscapes, ornate pavilions and grand avenues string together chunky building blocks and hence create a splendid alliance of mass and void.
