Most developers aim for maximizing the GFA in order to generate profit. In a series of dialogues with the client, Superimpose convinced the client to re-think the conventional ways of developing to increase the total value of the development by re-using parts of the existing urban tissue. Public realm, historical value, programmatic diversity and carefully planned public spaces provide the platform for a new community.
