The project includes two 53-story, 615 foot (187 m) mixed-use towers to be built in downtown Sacramento in a prominent location near the iconic Tower Bridge and within a few blocks from the California State Capitol. The buildings were designed to house 804 residential units, a 200-room Inter Continental Hotel, and high-end ground level retail. The project is notable due to its massive scope and scale, and it would have easily surpassed the city's current tallest building, the 423 foot (129 m) Wells Fargo Center. The program includes a Spa, a state-of-the-art Health Club, a retail center in the ground level, a major ballroom and conference center and a Heliport. At the time of design, it became the largest approved project in the West Coast of the United States.
