The existing site consists of pedestrian shop-lined walkways leading on to the main square, which is surrounded by red brick and concrete buildings, finished in the Brutalist style.
Our two proposals identified the lack of public space within the site, by creating central courtyards, large public axis’s and elevated roof gardens to maximise the extensive views towards the city centre.
The redevelopment of the site would add around 50,000m2 of retail, 80,00m2 of commercial and 40,000m2 of residential units. This would create a new c0mmunity with in city.
The proposal also addresses the lack of pedestrian and cycle routes across the site, by reinstating the historical routes of Botoloph and Calvert street, to create a main axis from west to east and green public space.
