Cascade commercial center is situated in the center of Zagreb, about 500m to the north of the main city square where the flat lowland part of Zagreb meets the elite housing covered city hills.
Along The Tkalciceva street, one of the important streets of Zagreb, the section of the building ensures visual contact with four streets/terraces of the center. From the Miklou?iceva Street, streets/terraces of the commercial center let just walk through the Cascade and continue to the north, to another Shopping center. The private streets/terraces become a part of the public city space.
The facades of the terraces are defined by the shop windows. The shops are entered either directly from the terrace on one side or over a small bridge crossing on the other. The terraces are spacious enough for both communication and use as an extension of the shops/cafes. The last two terraces are covered with a translucent roof.
The east part of the center is reserved for four apartments looking to the gardens of the residential street to the east of the center. The apartments and their entrance are completely separated from the commercial part of the building. On top of having a big garden in front of them, each of the apartments has a small garden of its own. The garage with the capacity of 180 cars and the technical part of the building are under the ground level. The gross area of the building is around 18,000 sqm.
