The designed residential district has the potential to give a boost to the developing zone that consists of mainly industrial and office areas. The project proposes a genuinely diverse area connected to the potential green corridor that enriches the living environment.
The area is bordered on one side by the green corridor called "Pollinator Highway" (Estonian: Putukaväil) which enriches and provides new values to the 6 city districts it passes along the way. The Pollinator Highway runs along a former railway dam and today's high-voltage power line corridor. As the high-voltage power lines are being put to an underground cable, a potential for a city-wide linear park is born.
