The design and development of a building in its location depends heavily on the surroundings in which the building is situated. Directly south of the site is a six-story building while a three-story building is located in close proximity to the north. The building must provide a gradual, transitional flow between the two present but differing scales.
Similar to the surrounding building stock, the proposal has an expanded first floor to compensate for commercial use. Furthermore, the building is a mixed-use development to take advantage of its close proximity to additional commercial developments as well as popular attractions within the city itself.
