The building is designed to be a prominent component of the existing shopping mall and it is destined to be a new landmark for the neighbourhood. Located at the north corner of Nanaimo North Town Centre, the new building is highly visible from its surrounding environment. Working with the original branding storefront design, the articulated northeast facing facade includes a feature signage design integrated with the roofline and white framed spandrel panels at a lower position. It immediately faces the intersection of Oliver Road and Uplands Drive, and it is designed as a featured street corner. This is further enhanced with a newly designed sidewalk open area surrounded by low curvy shaped landscape walls and green elements which will provide a new transitional walking experience between the new building & city street.
