The Urban Design framework focuses on the functional, form and environmental aspects of the built environment, with the objective of achieving a composite form. In this, both buildings and open spaces are parts of a larger picture. Their form and functional relationships are more important than their individual characteristics.

Because development rights at Century City are primarily influenced by the number of vehicles entering and leaving the site, the planning and transportation authorities have agreed that the developer can vary the quantum of individual land uses provided the total number of vehicle trips generated by the site does not exceed the permitted maximum. This enables the company to change the approved mix of land uses in response to market forces
A major benefit for developers
The local planning authority has agreed to the adoption of a unique planning process at Century City, a process that has major advantages for the land buyer/developer: Land is only subdivided off the 'mother site' once a sale has been concluded, and development rights are only allocated to the sold portion at the time of subdivision. This means that you can buy the size and location of site that best suits your needs and have the development rights allocated to your site that satisfy your specific requirements. In this way, you do not have to pay the inflated price for land that has prescribed rights you do not need!
