The site of the proposed building is bounded by roads and properties on four sides. A road runs between existing site marking the boundary for 364 and 372 Lt Lonsdale St on the eastern and western side respectively.

The shape of the site is regular and the area is about approx. 1935 m2 including the dividing roads. 32 storied complex has been proposed on the site for office use. The conceptual design consists of 4 basements for parking and numbers of plant rooms required for the complex. Ground floor is designed for retail purpose. The street level floors will be fully landscaped and will have limited area of retail and entertainment areas.

The cost of the building is estimated to be around $120 million including financial charges and cost escalation. The total development period is 30 months including three phases (design, permits and construction).
