The design of the 66-storey tower is an innovative solution to the issues of density in tropical Asian cities, and offers a new model for high-density tropical housing. The Met explores how aspects of low-rise tropical housing can be adapted to provide vast amenities through indoor-outdoor spaces in the sky. The high rise tower proposes gardens and swimming pools in the sky in six perforated towers that allow light and air to penetrate the slender forms. The retail block floats in a lotus pond and participates in the life of the city through showcase pods that punctuate the façade. The condominium houses 370 units, ranging from 2 bedrooms to 4 bedrooms and luxury penthouses. The property provides a full range of luxury facilities, including separate drop-off areas and lobbies, large landscaped garden, a 50-meter swimming pool, fitness centre, satellite gym, sky terrace, library, BBQ area, and 2 tennis courts.
