Challenge

Located in the Central Business District of Changsha, Benoy was tasked with Masterplanning this prominent mixed-site as well as delivering the heart of the scheme, the retail podium. Joining the high-profile IFS’ portfolio, the brief called for an integrated community hub which would not only be a landmark retail destination but a place to bring together arts, culture and events.

Solution

The scheme’s prominent location saw Benoy design Changsha IFS as an extension of one of the busiest pedestrian streets in China – the Huang Xing Pedestrian Shopping Street – which sits opposite the development. Highly integrated, the scheme’s 230,000 m² retail podium is connected to the development’s two towers which both house high-end hotels, as well as underground metro stations, to create a thriving commercial destination. 

Result

As a new landmark for the city, Changsha IFS offers over 400 shops alongside a changing programme of exhibitions, cultural activities and festivals. From Entertainment to Lifestyle, Retail, Culture and Food and Beverage, this mixed-use destination is a truly unique addition for the Changsha community.
