SWOT Analysis
Strength
Surrounded by tall tress (1218m) Located in lively commercial area Lively community; students, customers, residents Concentration of educational institute, agency, consultant.

Opportunity
Develop into a social green lung in the centre of concrete commercial area Interconnected with the surrounding hotspot Develop a commons that suit everybody needs Develop into a one stop center of education

Weakness
Parking Woes Full of commercial but lack of social places No sense of belonging, student study here, no live here

Threat
Creating spaces different from creating places Difficult to meet wide community needs with a single building project
