The building arrangement on site has allowed the creation of a large park-like setting central to the compelx, an oasis to be enjoyed by the residents from their units, with large trees providing more privacy between buildings and much needed shade in summer over the communal spaces. The fact that the parking garage does not invade the central space means that landscaping is developed over natural terrain, with the beneficial effect this will have for tree growth and canopy cover.
The large dimension of the central park area offers the possibility of developing a rich program of activities: swimming pools, playgrounds, a sports area with a paddle court and a ball court, and a community garden with pergola for shading picnic tables, offering residents an attractive social area.
Along the northern border of the site is another green area that complements the central space, a wooded area with paths where it is possible to find a quiet space to enjoy nature. The commercial building and offices, adjacent to the residential complex, will have roof top gardens and terraces to improve environmental performance and quality.
