The existing massing is consistent across the majority of the site with articulation and stepping down in height in the north corner only. To the edge of the massing there is currently limited active use, street frontage and public open space. Leverett Street, a road that divides the site and its massing, does not relate to the surrounding urban grain.
A layering of commercial and residential uses create active public frontage at street level and semi-private courtyards at higher level. Leverett Street is realigned to relate with the surrounding urban grain and pedestrianised to provide an inviting street environment through the site.
