Major views over water to the city and harbour bridge are enjoyed by a higher density residential precinct along the city or eastern edge. 

A four level podium encloses retail, commercial and residential uses along this edge. It also defines a series of water inlets for decks, promenades and marinas.

Residential towers have a similar height to those across the water at Jackson’s Landing. 

Along the north western edge of the site is low rise residential built form and a large boat marina. 

A large urban park acts as a green lung in the middle of the two precincts.
