The layout concept takes reference from the financial trading boards with a simple grid pattern overlain with a forecast graph line, interpreted as a physical separation between pedestrian movement corridors and spatial activity.

The three parks are orientated towards the Urban Financial Centre, Linear Desert Park and the Residential Green Park.
