Skyscraper News reports that the Citygate Ecotower is designed to be the most environmentally friendly skyscraper on earth. The building features photo-voltaic (solar) panels that are incorporated as a part of the cladding system, which channels the captured energy directly onto on-floor outlets to run equipment like computers and laptops. I didn't like the tower's design at first. But the more I learned, the more I liked the concept. The architects have really planned out the tower's intended use and I have come to realize the uniqueness and beauty in its design. Excess energy generated by the tower would be sold back to the grid to offset other energy costs. The solar panels, ventilated facades and wind turbines are anticipated to reduce the building's net energy costs by up to 60%. The building will be mixed use with retail space towards the bottom of the tower, larger floor plans for office and hotel space in the middle, and residential/penthouse space, with amazing views of London, between floors 88-102 towards the top. Sky parks have also been designed that will be open and accessible to the public. The tower's design would harvest the wind into turbines at the open section of the tower between levels 12-18. This helps to reduce turbulence at the base of the tower. The tower will be built with London's public transportation network in mind. Those traveling by subway will be able to access the tower directly by lift, reducing the building's street level impact.
