Map of Brandfield with two proposed sites for a shopping mall
There are 2 proposed sites for Brandfield’s new shopping mall. One of the sites [S1] is just northeast of downtown. It is adjacent to the park and golf course, and a new railway station could potentially be constructed on the railway that operates southwest of S1. The housing estate is directly to the northwest of S1 with a preexisting road transecting the residential community. But there is a potential danger of seasonal flooding due to the proximity of the river to the east of S1.
The alternative proposed site [S2] is situated to the east of the downtown area. This site is potentially less attractive insofar as shoppers would need to travel by rail or car. The industrial estate is directly north of S2. This location could potentially provide better urban land use if the housing estates can be connected with the shopping center via a localized light rail system.
In any case, shop owners in the proposed mall will likely much prefer S1 due to its proximity to the residential area of the town. [175 words]
