The Verona Tower will be the first high rise building in Verona, Italy, rising 24 stories. The commercial office tower will be located in the new central business district, just minutes from the beautiful historic district. The tower’s design is striving for LEED Platinum, inclusive of new mechanical system technology, southern facing louvres with solar cells, a high performance curtain wall, and many other green technology features. The base of the building is characterized by its sculpted landscape and amphitheaters that rise into the second floor, where a dramatic 5-story tall contemporary rendition of an Italian piazza is located. The atrium is accentuated by three cantilevered conference rooms that protrude into the volume.
