Inspired by an oriental pagoda, the plaza's entrance is covered by a large and intricate canopy held by elliptical and asymmetrical columns. A continuous canopy above the adjacent store-front shop entrances was also part of the design. Over 95% of the panels are curved and champagne in colour. The incorporation of electrical fixtures and skylights in the pagoda are a testament to the designer's intent to create an outstanding feature and give new life to this building.
