I imagine the city being set up carved into rock along two facing cliffsides that are separated by a river. The river comes in from the north from the lake, curves towards the west as it makes it way south, and then curves back east at the end of the city before it breaks west again and drains from the coast. The two cliffsides are connected by large arched bridges for the top levels and cheap wood and rope bridges for the bottom. The cliffside on the left is nearly pure Hammerfellian. Not in architecture, but in decor and people. The people on the right are mixed between Imperial and Hammerfellian and they mix quite well despite the crime that grips the city. At the top level of the Imperial side sits an Imperial monastery. A once beautiful building, it now sits mostly empty and rundown. The Imperial guard has been so run thin that an Imperial in fear of the Kali Mes cant even find sanctuary from them in the monastery, as they Kali Mes will just walk right in and kill them there on the spot.

I'm more worried about the implementation into the wider landscape: for this city's location and importance to make sense requires a rather dramatic canyon across the northern Gold Coast, and an absence of easier trade routes or settlement locations.
