Solely relying on the concept of quality of living and providing the residents with a welcoming realm to socialize and play, this design has been proposed. The plan involves ship infrastructure, bicycle, and pedestrian pathways and some spectacular landscaping integrated with gardens, parks, and outdoor seating.

The raised platform offers dazzling views of the skyline along with an opportunity to be around nature. Designed with keeping in mind various users, age groups, and accessibility, this space provides extra amenities for all kinds of people. Entertainment spots could be figured out at every point while bicycling or going for a morning walk.

Expected to be completed by February 2024, this design is currently under the design development stage. The intention for the design is to fully utilize the spaces by integrating the previous built up and the adjacent 9a bikeway.
