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 city.
Located at the north corner of Nanaimo North Town Centre, the new building will be highly visible from surrounding environment. 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 for the city. 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.
