Masterplan development

Building heights

This plan shows the number of storeys and heights of the proposed new buildings and those in the surrounding area. 

The design of the new buildings is guided by a series of design principles that were identified early in the project and are highlighted above. This includes stepping down of buildings towards the edges of the site, in response to the scale and character of the immediate context and minimising the visual impact of the new buildings.
