Spatial allocation of population contributed to local community and city needs Creates significant green spaces to be shared by the city Provides multiple well-integrated public, private and non-vehicular transit options

Speed Economic Robustness Funding Phasing

Number of years to implement project Ability to remain valid under different assumptions, parameters and conditions Identification of investment costs and funding sources Clear rationale for implementation stages

Liveability Enhances the quality of the site resulting in improved quality of life; access to sunlight, air, public transportation, recreation, jobs and other services Sustainability Promotes energy efficiency through building forms and orientation, savings in electricity, water, materials and lessens impacts on the environment Neighbourhood Builds on the identity of the place, uses cultural or historical references, or specific uses or activities as identifiers to nurture community belongingness Vibrant Open Space A functional mix supports interaction with surrounding urban community; considers living spaces and open spaces in relation to the city Implementation Identified stakeholders, phases and funding; identified user groups to enable planning; allows community participation in decision making
