The canopied entrance will have a 50ft high wall of glass providing views into the mall.
The entrance will lead into a network of multi-storey pedestrian boulevards that run the entire depth of the mall, rising in height over two levels from the ground to the glass skylight, complete with modern style feature lighting.
On the upper retail level, galleried pedestrian pathways will overlook the grand boulevard below.
The boulevards are lined with glass fronted stores providing over 210 retail units ranging from 70-160 sqm in size.
The mall boulevards are enhanced by intricate water features and exotic planting.
