The plaza design features a glazed entry pavilion, a tower with views of the plaza and a ring of trees, which will frame the space.

The proposed event space will host major celebrations such as New Year’s Eve, Australia Day and the Lunar New Year. The space will have capacity for up to 4,000 revellers.
