The design of the development needs to conform to the approved town-planning scheme. The balance is open surroundings that may be landscaped, paved, parking and is effectively open space. This is known as Phase 2.

The footprint of the Gautrain Station improvement is a staggered triangular shape with the middle for main entrance access. The building is constructed using a cast-in-situ concrete framework on concrete foundation work. There are various levels of building being underground metro station stops, basement parking (part of which is staggered), ground floor reception and two upper floor office/retail levels. The building is generally a high-grade Sandton CBD retail facility awaiting further development. The nature of the existing facility lends itself to further development. The nature of the position and zoning allowance lends itself perfectly to create a highly sought after live-work-play investment opportunity.
