The Urban Block incorporates huge floorplates that allow for greater flexibility and more unique flexibilities in office and retail planning. This huge floorplate also allows for multiple connectivity for multilevel office campuses and creates a stronger core centrality. This centrality increases activity and maximizes foot traffic by allowing travel throughout the complex to be seamless and convenient.
The Urban Block also proposes a complete city center that functions as an urban core. This mix of diverse functions means a more creative and cosmopolitan urbanity is fostered inside the block. The creation of a unique and distinct urban environment stands in stark contrast to the existing urban fabric that dominates BGC. The Urban Block is a careful consideration of future trends. Projecting the future needs of an urban populace and anticipating and allowing for possibilities that will define the cityscape.WTA Architecture + Design Studio
