  3. Active ground floor uses with high proportions of clear glazing to the streets.
  4. Entrances to office and other upper floor uses to be prominently located on a principal elevation and designed to include generous lobby space and canopies. 
  5. New enhanced and redesigned public realm on and around the site, including at Armada Way in accordance with established City Centre public realm design principles and materials pallets.
  6. Innovative solutions to minimise the visual impact of car parking and maximise secure cycle parking.
