Latitude Yellow has been planned to be a fully glazed ten-storey development, which will include 157,000ft² of Grade A office space, along with floor plates of 16,759ft².

The development will be fronting Wellington Road and will feature a double height colonnade along with parking spaces for 69 cars and 92 bikes at its basement.
