Located on a steeply sloping site, Rosslyn Riviera Shopping Centre is designed as a neighborhood retail development that will complement its surrounding suburban scale while also avoiding being overwhelming. It is designed to sit on four levels that cascade down the slope on which it sits.

Parking is largely contained at the basement level within the slope. Shops are spread across three levels
