Connected landscape

This landmark development sits at a prime location adjacent to the Shanghai South Railway Station; the city’s second most prominent metro station after the Shanghai Railway Station. The overall scheme is being developed over three phases with Benoy as the Chief Architect delivering the final phase.

Connecting six commercial blocks, the scheme aims to create a new urban complex set within a 70,000m2 landscaped realm. The three phases are connected by a mile-long green valley which runs diagonally across the site.

Mimicking the forms of the rolling landscape, the 100,000m2 multi-level retail podium is a network of interconnected buildings. The podium has been fragmented into a collection of curved individual blocks, each carved out to create unique spaces for Retail, Food and Beverage, Leisure and Arts tenants.

Sitting above the podium are the four Grade A commercial office towers. Benoy is delivering the twin towers which will reach to 120m in height. The architectural design melds with the landscape once again, impressing open-air sky gardens into the buildings which will overlook the public park.
