The district shops are to cater primarily for residential components of the development. These shops and services will accommodate uses such as retail, service retail, café, restaurants and offices. These functions will strengthen the sense of community within each neighbourhood along with other local facilities. The design seeks to create a comfortable and secure environment while creating a sense of place for the surrounding community. This is achieved by creating smaller pedestrian friendly spaces where people can relax within, while also providing sufficient surface car parking nearby. The complex consists of retail shops, service retail, café, restaurants on ground floor with offices on first floor and 35 three-bed apartments above. The offices and apartment both have separate entrances so improving security for is occupants. The overall architectural appearance of the building is that of a contemporary feel and character. The finishes chosen, both external and internal, are high quality and durable in nature, so as to attract potential end users and residents.
