GP secures largest Chinese project to date in Qianhai district's Neighborhood 2

Architecture firm Goettsch Partners (GP) has been hired by developer China Resources Land Limited (CR Land) to design a massive project located in Neighborhood 2 of Shenzhen’s Qianhai district. The project covers 6.18 hectares and includes five commercial towers totalling 450,000 sq m - the firm’s largest project to date in China.

The overall development totals 503,000 sq m and includes three office towers, a five-star hotel tower, an apartment tower, a shopping mall and retail stores. GP is designing all of the towers, as well as the hotel and apartment podiums and their affiliated program spaces. GP will collaborate with UK-based design firm Benoy, who developed the master plan and is designing the shopping mall and retail areas.

The Qianhai district is a special economic zone designated for an ambitious $45bn overall development to transform the 15 sq km area into the 'Manhattan of the Pearl River Delta'. Neighborhood 2 is the most recent of three Qianhai parcels sold.

The overall design concept is one of a unified complex composed of buildings with related yet individual exterior characteristics and facades designed with a textured elegance that differentiates them from the surrounding blue-glass buildings of Shenzhen. A metallic-painted aluminium frame with consistent spacing between verticals prioritises internal planning flexibility for the office towers.

The spacing between horizontal frame elements varies from a two-storey to a four-storey rhythm in order to respond more individually to each office building’s height and proportions. The frame’s vertical component is accentuated by means of double fins; this character is countered by an expression of double horizontal fins on the hotel and apartment towers that create a related yet different appearance while affording maximum flexibility for views and natural ventilation.

“We are delighted and honoured to win this prestigious commission,” said James Zheng, AIA, LEED AP, president of GP. “We are confident to design a modern, bold and highly sustainable world class complex for the new Qianhai district.” The commission marks GP’s latest project for CR Land. Other assignments include the Grand Hyatt Dalian, an over 400m-tall mixed-use tower in Nanning, the Hotel Kapok Shenzhen Bay, and two additional towers at Shenzhen Bay.

Model of the buildings and the mall. Could be higher then 260m and the 2x 230m are likely not right too because the hights differ according to the model.

I guess I find it interesting that malls seem to be a big thing in China while they seem to on the decline in the U.S. I haven't been to a mall in months. Great design!

I wonder anyway how much mall demand Shenzhen has that it is justifying this mall construction boom, since the total turnover of all retail stores just grows ~8 % a year. I mean it seems that a big mall is part of every mediumbig development, and that would be much more ten 8% growth I estimate. I really wonder if this boom is healthy.....

Aren't most malls in US located in suburbs? It's a very different concept from what you see in China and other cities in Asia (Bangkok, Singapore, KL).

Are there any numbers of mall space in SZ? How does it compare to major SE Asian cities where malls have been a massive success and became part of the identity of some cities (ones I mentioned)? Shenzhen climate is well suitable for big enclosed shopping spaces.

Uhm. Are we sure this is U/C? All I can see is a lonely piling machine that could be drilling god knows what part of the complex.
