The structure is one of gigantic proportions, consisting of 10 buildings and covering an area of approximately 48 hectares (119 acres). 48 shops, 283 offices and 1897 apartments occupy the New Town, and it also houses schools, a clubhouse, restaurants, cafes, a cinema, a swimming pool, and tennis courts. The yellow, pink and electric blue colors of the exteriors add to its imposing appearance and its towering presence reigns over the neighborhood.
