The building being the nucleus of the whole city, the site should be in a more or less centrally located place and should have good accessibility from all parts of the city. It will be desirable if it is nearer to other civic amenities like shopoping centres, public parks, theatres, etc. The site selected for this building abides by all these principles. It is connected to all parts of the city by roads and waterways. The selection is also consistent with the proposals of the Comprehensive Development Plan prepared for the Greater Cochin Region by the Town Planning Department of the state.
