Lee & Partners and Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, and has an unusual prong design with two separate 39 floor sections, which merge into a single central tower rising to a spire. This unique design leaves a substantial space below the central part of the tower. The design was inspired by the Chinese character Kao meaning tall, and also the first character in the citys name.
