A separate 12-storey hotel and 30,000ft² of distinctive restaurants and retail shops will sit in the base of the project.

Wright Runstad & Company president Greg Johnson said: "The submission of our Master Use Permit application represents a significant milestone in the advancement of the project and puts us in position to begin construction in late 2015, with the first tenants occupying the project in late 2017.

"With project design and entitlements falling into place, we have been able to advance our discussions with potential tenants, hotel operators and project investors."
