The project is located in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and consists of a series of buildings connected through basement floors. In the first phase, the construction of three housing towers with 13 floors above ground level and three levels of basements connecting them are planned. In the second phase, the existing basements will be expanded and a new commercial and office building will be built on this extension.

Windmill's mission has been to design the structure of the whole complex, adjusting to the architectural needs and the available construction systems. The structure of the towers has been solved by means of shielded pillars and two rigid cores in each tower, with reinforced slabs and perimeter ridges to achieve the minimum slab edge. It should be noted that these are tall buildings in seismic areas with very heterogeneous lands with presence of aquifers. The foundation is of mixed slabs under the towers and footings in the basement area.

In phase two, due to the uneven terrain, the basement is 6 stories deep. These containments will be made through walls anchored to the ground that will be executed as excavation is carried out.
