There are five retail anchor stores, a luxury precinct of 40 premium retailers, 50 eateries, a 14-screen cinema complex, a gym and a spa. But, the most striking feature is the curving glass roof that is the defining design feature of the development, atop a figure eight layout with two principal levels and a full mezzanine level.
Malls are wide and generous, with larger nodal spaces in front of each anchor store.
