Serving as the presentation centre's focal point, a scale model of the development's initial phases builds upon the renderings being used to market the project, offering visitors a chance to soak in more details of the building's architecture. Lakeside's design draws inspiration from the sailboats commonly seen in the harbour a short distance to the south, evident in the complementary convex and concave facades seen on the first phase's taller towers.
