The proposed program for the site included office space totaling 2.5 million square feet was to be built in several structures: a retail complex, a 600-room hotel, a residential development containing 1,000 units, and a 20,000-seat sports arena. The main urban design strategy was to create a major glazed street, a grand galleria, which would connect all parts of the project. Two office buildings and the hotel formed a series of gateways arching over the grand galleria. The project design was an invited competition entry.
