Astana Emerald Towers

Astana, Kazakhstan

Design Thinking: Located in the heart of the developing historic city, the Emerald Towers consist of three buildings, two of which are 37-storeys and one is 54. As the tallest buildings in Kazakhstan, the Towers have become a tourist attraction and an elegant icon on the skyline of Astana. The Towers gracefully integrate itself into the rapidly developing urban texture and compliment the historic grand boulevard. Working in harmony with the surrounding landscape and architecture, the Towers form an architectural interpretation of indigenous prairie grass swaying gently in the wind.

Key Features: The first two phases contain primarily office space, while the third phase will be a mixed-use hotel and condominium. At the tower’s base, the 2,000 car parking podium includes pedestrian-friendly retail, as well as a large conference centre and health spa.
