Nexus 7000 vrf design question


I hope you are well and hope you can assist

We have a requirement where we have a number of Concession where we need to add them to a avoid ACLs / the use of the global ruting table  (L3 segregation)

In the drawing below the black line are the global routing table we have put in another physical fibre between the switches and are using  sub interfaces to allow multiple vrfs over the new physical interface in dotted blue lines, in our example below, L3 vlan 20 on the N7K CCC (left) is in VRF test and L3 vlan 20 on the N7K CCC (right) is also in vlan 20 vlan 20 is also allowed over the VPC peer link.

Question below

Is the below a valid design adn scalable moving forward?

we have seperate physical interfaces for the VRF except for the VPC peer link (L2) the vlans (20) in the vrf will be allowed over the VPC peer link  (L2) and the VRF vlan 20 will form OSPF adjancey between each other over the VPC peer link can that cause any issues  ?   (We will be running ospf with in the VRF)  all blue dotted line will also form ospf adjanceys between each other over the new physical fibres put in place


Any advice is Soo much appreciated
