Our design will feature a balance of public and private spaces creating a unique mixed-use urban quarter of offices, apartments, hotels and retail use.  We have carefully designed a series of internal and external public spaces with tree-lined streets, light filled atria and rooftop gardens; places for people to live, work and enjoy life.
