The public realm in Exit 10 plays an important role in the visitor experience. While it comprises ‘circulation space’ between plazas, districts and attractions, it is also an attraction in its own right. The public space will accommodate activities and interactive components and will provide a canvas for the thematic overlay and signature attractions.

The food and beverage offer in Exit 10 has been compiled to achieve a critical mass that will make dining, in its own right, a reason to visit the complex. The design of the complex will complement the dining offer and encourage people to visit the complex. The placement, curation and configuration of the dining offer will facilitate ‘cross spending’ with the entertainment attractions and activities.
