The site plan is configured to accommodate mix of residential, offices, hotel, retail and community uses. The main vehicular access is provided from South Bank Road along the north edge of the boundary line. Offices buildings address South Bank Road to the north and urban park to the south. Residential blocks occupy southern portion of the site enjoying wide sea frontage, overlooking Sean Moore Park to the south and the primary urban park / plaza to the north. The urban park extends to connect Glass Bottle Site with the shore line. Animation of the new urban park is provided by the LUAS station, an iconic hotel building and access to the Docklands / Local History Museum. Internal pedestrianised street with retail uses on both sides forms the spine of the whole development. It provides access to Sean Moore Park to the south and to the office entrance plaza at South Bank Road to the north. The spine road crosses the main plaza creating the focal point of the whole development. An iconic hotel building has been designed at that location.
A landscaped seaside boulevard provides transition between residential quarter and the sea and extends into the central plaza and district centre. It continues further to the north along offices opening up the view from South Bank Road to Dublin Bay and Wicklow Mountains. That opening of this view accentuated by 75m high landmark building on Bissett Site. The ground floor of retail blocks is occupied by retail/restaurants along internal spine road and along seaside boulevard. East-west orientated roads between the blocks provide access to live-work units. Each residential block is designed to optimise usage of sun light and provide views to the sea. The height of the southern arm of each block has been reduced to enhance sun penetration to residential courtyards. Courtyards are provided on the podium level with unobstructed panoramic view to the sea. All apartments enjoy dual aspect and attractive view over Dublin Bay and/or Dublin Mountains.
