The main sales area on the ground floor has large glazed windows overlooking the recently-renovated Speakers Corner, with stairs at the rear of the ground floor to the first floor. The large ground floor lends itself to a number of uses.

The property enjoys a prominent location overlooking the most recent development – the new Speakers Corner and improved paving.
Occupiers within the scheme include restaurants The Botanist and The Cosy Club, national retailers such as Hobbs, Phase Eight and Whistles, a 4-screen Everyman Cinema and 200 Degrees Coffee.
