The building's most striking characteristic is its form, like that of a sailing ship with sails unfurled. The area in which the new development rises is prevalently the home of big hotels and buildings with rather featureless architecture; in such a setting the Sail Tower stands out, while at the same time returning to local architectural tradition with its curved lines and undulating forms.
The load-bearing reinforced concrete structure consists of a central body surrounded by pilasters around the perimeter. There are two extra pilasters at the swollen area halfway up the tower.
There are no pilasters in the office space, which is supported by a 200 mm thick floor.
