Urban Design

Urban Design (UD) intentions are translated into guidelines to preserve and enhance the urban character of the different planning areas. The guidelines help to ensure that developments integrate well with their surrounding urban environment. These include guidelines on uses at the basement, 1st and 2nd storey levels, Outdoor Refreshment Areas (ORAs) (i.e. alfresco / outdoor dining areas), building form and height, pedestrian network and public spaces, greener, night-lighting, etc.
