The Wave Tower creates a strong architectural statement that is futuristic while reflecting traditional and natural elements. The tower’s undulating form in elevation is both dynamic and graceful.
Views from the ground are especially dramatic as the building hovers overhead. The changing geometry of the building offers a variety of views, yet an efficiency of planning as each floor is the same shape. A 10-story atrium, located in the vertical space between the two opposing curves, offer a special amenity.
