SHANGHAI | The Springs | 280m | 919ft | 250m | 820ft | Pro

Architect: Terry Farrell


Two mixed-use masterplan commissions for Farrells secured in Shanghai

Eighteen months after opening an office in Shanghai, Farrells have been appointed as architect planners for two major new mixed-use developments in the city. Located on either side of the Huangpu River, these prestigious projects will transform the urban landscape of the central northern area of Shanghai.

Historically, Shanghai’s coastal location meant that it was a thriving port and centre for trade in the East. Now a global city, it is one the world’s leading financial centres with the second highest population in China. Farrells' global experience of city planning led to these separate commissions for The Springs development north of the city and a further development within the Shanghai shipyard area in Pudong.

The Springs mixed-use project is a residential, commercial, and retail complex totalling 10 million sq ft on 66 acres of land in one of the fastest growing neighbourhoods and education hubs in Shanghai. The masterplan is sensitive to the existing environment with much of the open, green spaces retained offering different people and communities easy access to nature.

The existing Zha Ying Road and Songhu Road linear parks border the new development which has been heavily invested in by the city of Shanghai with excellent landscaping, water courses and outdoor furniture. These existing parklands were the context from which the Springs masterplan was created for developer Tishman Speyer, seamlessly integrating with the surrounding natural landscape.

On the Southern side of the Huangpu River, the second new development masterplanned by Farrells is located within the shipyards of the Pudong district in the heart of the city’s financial district. The masterplan will create a new retail and leisure destination with high quality offices for large-scale financial enterprises providing 5 million sq ft of accommodation. The development steps downs towards the waterfront and the towers benefit from views across the water, with the lower level retail units bordering a public plaza and tree lined promenade leading to the water’s edge.

in the sticky out part of the building above the base it is around 50 floors + the bottom part and + the crown this will be 250m+ and the side tower will also be a little over 200m i think.

Nice towers! Sadly they're pretty far away from the main clusters (Jing'an and Lujiazui).

The title should be changed to:
SHANGHAI | The Springs | 280m | 919ft | 250m | 820ft | Pro

And in case someone didn't notice, this project replace the old one named "Knowledge Commercial Plaza": http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1061321

There's also a thread about The Springs in Gaoloumi:
http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...age%3D1&page=1

And it seems the project is alive, there's no sight of activity in the skyscrapers, but some of the shorter building areas (phase 1) have already been built.

The next 2 renders have been published as part of The Springs, however, these squares don't appear in the renders above
