The retail components are: Home store and furniture market, “Standard” retail shopping mall with entertainment/ food and beverage, and an exterior shopping street. The project also has a mid-sized exhibition area with supporting hotel and business center.

The site is located at the intersection of two large city arteries. The positioning of the retail focuses out toward this corner to try and maximize visibility and frontage for the retailers. Equally important to the success of this project was for the different retailing components ability to leverage the audience from the complimenting retail. The shopping street becomes this “glue” which ties the project together with flow being continuous and uninterrupted throughout the site. Intermixed with this is a contemporary notion of mixed use residential dwellings which help this development achieve a 24 hour, 365 day year cycle which provides a mutually beneficial relationship to both retailer and resident.

The 150 m high tower block with a gross floor area of 73,000 m² protrudes the Ningbo skyline and becomes the new landmark of the striving economic region located south of Shanghai.

The concept for the building on Heyi Road generates its form from two curved elements, which are connected in their centre, thereby generating the shape of an X. The central axis of the building is positioned at right angles to the river embankment, thus stating its relationship to the river. The glazed centre accommodates the tower core with the serving functions. A two-storeyed recess defines the upper part of the tower. The building accommodates a five-star Marriott Hotel with more than 325 rooms, ranging from the generous King Room to the Presidential Suites. Office areas and commercial facilities are planned along the embankment promenade. The new design of the landscape park forms part of the planning.

The completion of the tower block is scheduled for mid 2007.

The size and scale of new developments in China are truly amazing. Of course it's a big country. What is the effect of the tighter credit for these projects, will they be able to find their financing?
towards a livable city...
