The Arc is a world-class development that establishes a new benchmark for mixed-use complexes in Kathmandu. Located in heart of the city, close to Secretariat, Ministries, Convention Center, and the International Airport, the development provides an exclusive address to conduct business alongside the most progressive and influential names in the corporate world.
This state-of-the-art workplace combines comforts of a home with the conveniences of a hotel and the efficiencies of a modern office, including a large conference center, serviced offices and accommodation for visiting business associates, restaurants, health club, and a variety of retail outlets. The offices are designed with personalized lobbies, abundant natural lighting and ventilation, 85% floor plate efficiency, and a flexible floor plan conducive to all kinds of arrangements. The overall property is engineered to withstand high intensity earthquakes, and fully equipped with sophisticated fire-fighting and building management systems.
Above all, the Arc is a sustainable development – a minimalist approach relying on forces of nature. The building forms are chiseled to the local solar patterns and prevailing wind directions, with roof gardens insulating the floors and re-channeling rainwater for re-charge and reuse.
