A 135 acre mixed-use parcel in Gaborone, Botswana that is a unique design to symbolize the diamond production heritage of the region and to provide a city centre to attract international business.

This centre creates a 'place' within the adjoining area for international development to thrive and become the new iconic symbol of the region.

The careful integration of public/private spaces and open areas infuse a certain vitality to the complex.

The centre is 'green' as a development and the twin 'freedom towers' become the new symbol of the region.
