From the architect. Tower Plaza is one of a set of two office towers with 17 floors above ground situated in Vila Nova de Gaia, facing O’Porto. The towers embrace symmetrically the main roundabout of Gaia Nova on V8 Avenue.

The project conception profit from local morphology and stressed the visual relationship that is easily established with O’Porto city and its river. The higher floors offer breathtaking sights of the city stretching from downtown to the ocean.
