EP 09 Towers is a complex of six towers spreading across a built-up area of 450,000 square meters. The mixed-use community will have one residential community and the other two which include retail, commercial, and entertainment amenities. All these towers will be connected at the base, but separated above by a distance spanning 175 meters. The energy-efficient buildings will open up to landscaped roof, garden and podium. The energy save by one tower could be passed on the other, and hence the buildings will complement the use of energy.

Contemporary architecture is the architecture of the 21st century. No single style is dominant; contemporary architects are working in several different styles, from postmodernism and high-tech architecture to highly conceptual and expressive forms and designs, resembling sculpture on an enormous scale. The different styles and approaches have in common the use of very advanced technology and modern building materials, such as tube structures which allow construction of buildings that are taller, lighter and stronger than those in the 20th century, and the use of new techniques of computer-aided design, which allow buildings to be designed and modeled on computers in three dimensions, and constructed with more precision and speed.

A community solar farm or garden is a solar power installation that accepts capital from and provides output credit and tax benefits to individual and other investors. In some systems you buy individual solar panels which are installed in the farm after your purchase. In others you purchase kW capacity or kWh of production. The farm's power output is credited to investors in proportion to their investment, with adjustments to reflect ongoing changes in capacity, technology, costs and electricity rates. Companies, cooperatives, governments or non-profits operate the farms.
