The masterplan was arranged to create a new urban linear link between the North Circular Road and the Grangegorman Campus. The main route is a 430 metre-long street, zig-zagging along its length, and at each turn a retained tree terminates the view, creating a successful balance between the volume of the blocks and the massing of greenery. This street is fronted by a combination of residential accommodation, communal facilities, and outdoor activities.
There also are a series of ancillary routes and spaces that branch off the main street, offering a wide variety of activities including basketball, jogging trail, table-tennis, chess, picnic, seating, sun-lounging, and open lawn area.
