The facility comprises 175 high-end one-to-four-bedroom penthouse suites ranging from 82.0 SQM to 309.0 SQM, and various amenities for residents.

There are also various social amenities such as shopping malls, food courts and well-organized delivery service companies easily accessible by residents within the GTC complex.
