Notable features

An interesting modern building in that the elevator core is exposed through the middle of the building and used as a tower feature. The 43 storey Telecom Corporate Tower is the headquarters for the former Telecom company. The building has a staggered quadrants clad in glass and is topped with a spire. Stark minimalism and black curtain wall glass achieves a modern effect, while the breaking up of the building into distinctly sepaate cubist structures creates a stepped effect, and a dramatic sillhouette on the skyline.
