The development is in the block bounded by Bree, Waterkant and Strand streets and Buitengracht. It is part of a declared Urban Conservation Area and includes the 18th-century Lutheran Church complex. The focus of the development is the historic Martin Melck warehouse which runs the length of the block along Bree Street adjacent to the church property.

The initial plans for the site generated controversy, with the approval by Heritage Western Cape being challenged by some big names in the heritage community who pointed out that it was the only 18th century streetscape still preserved in a single block in South Africa.
