As part of Amsterdam's Zuidas CBD Development, Amsterdam-based architecture and design firm NL Architects proposed a design for a staircase-inspired residential building to be built on top of a plinth of retail and commercial spaces called Gershwin (Plot 14). The site is projected to be located between the historic center and the airport.

The inspiration behind the structure is the contemporary European atmosphere with a silhouette in form of steps to offer panoramic views of the capital city. The entire tower is 77 meters tall, each apartment unit offering different internal layouts with 20 penthouses occupying the top floors of the tower. The apartment units will all be fitted with an external terrace space of approximately 12.5 square meters.
