Architecture[edit]

The Troika was completed in 2010, and features three glass-clad towers of varying heights. The three towers will surround a park located in the middle. The three towers are: 160 m (520 ft) with 38 storeys, 177 m (581 ft) with 44 storeys, and 204 m (669 ft) with 50 storeys. The Troika also features two double-volume glass-encased bridges connecting a sky lobby which spans the three towers at the 24th floor.[3]

Other components of The Troika development comprise small office home offices (SOHO), boutique offices, retail spaces and restaurants.
