Description: The competition site forms parts of sectors 34 and 43. The part in sector 34 is currently occupied with public buildings, including a post office, while the other part of the competition site that is in sector 43 is currently occupied with residential units, as well as shops, workshops, a mosque and a local health centre, all of which can be seen via the attached maps. However, for the purpose of this competition, we will assume the acquisition of the area of the project, while providing suitable alternatives for the transferring of housing units and other functions (this is not within the scope of the competition).
