The brief is divided between two city blocks that contain social and free market housing, a shopping centre, a hotel, a small area of offices and car parks, and the central part that joins the two blocks, channelling the flow of car and pedestrian transit.

Ilôt 1A houses dwellings, with a shopping centre on the ground floor. The structures and roofs of the construction can now be seen, and work is beginning on the outer facings of the façades.

In the past, this area was reserved for car traffic, with pedestrians having to use an underpass. The brief has raised the roads, which are now open to traffic, generating a green public space by the riverside which, as well as joining the two islets, connects this area with the urban centre.
