JLD will be a vibrant CBD with flexible and adaptable spaces for the future economy.


The district is envisioned as a vibrant, mixed-use business district with a live-in population. Flexibility and adaptability is incorporated into the master plan to meet the needs of a rapidly-evolving economy. A regular grid system with “white zoning” lets developers and business configure land parcels and building spaces in ways that best meet emerging needs. Introducing less common uses such as schools, community facilities and galleries can create more interesting and lively spaces.

 

The extensive podium spaces in the lower floors are key to accommodating an evolving mix of uses. The porous ground floors, court yards and through-block pedestrian links create generous public spaces that encourage interaction, networking and a lively public realm.

 

 

 

LIVE-IN CBD 

JLD will not just be a place for work. With 20,000 new homes, attractive street life, and a rich network of parks, water features and leisure options, it will be a bustling district day and night, seven days a week.
