By going far from the city center, taller buildings will show up and volumes of the project will end up with two iconic office buildings to be the new symbol of Kayseri. Cultural and public buildings are closer to the historical center. The project will provide an efficient solution to the traffic problem of the city center by dividing the traffic load with a large scale double street design along the green area.

The meeting point of the 2 large scale green parks is the exact location for the 2 commercial towers which represent the role of Kayseri in the economy of Turkey.
