SHANGHAI | Shang Xian Fang Redevelopment | 210m | 688ft | 47 fl | App

From the architect's wensite:

PROJECT: SHANG XIAN FANG REDEVELOPMENT
YEAR: 2015
LOCATION: SHANGHAI, CHINA
CLIENT: SHANGHAI NEW WORLD SHANGXIAN LANE DEVELOPMENT LTD.
TOTAL AREA: 100,000

Located in Shanghai’s most prominent CBD, Shangxian Square is a typical residential “shikumen” neighborhood. As part of Shanghai’s cultural heritage, the architectural style of this high-density development combines Western and Chinese elements. But today, the existing dwellings are not longer compatible with modern living standards and the degradation of the urban environment is a crucial problem for the city. Shang Xian Fan Redevelopment will greatly contribute to the revitalization of the district.
With a total site area of 8,800 m2, the masterplan is divided in two parts. To the south of the plot, the development preserves four rows of residential buildings built in 1924 in the former French Concession, which is currently listed as part of the City Government “Old Town Reconstruction Project”. These houses, which play an important role in the city’s collective memory, will be carefully restored and re-positioned to house retail space. The program called for a mixed-use landmark to be built on the north. Within a GFA of 70,000 m2 above ground, the 47-storey building combines a six-star hotel (tentatively a Four Seasons hotel), serviced apartments and retail area.
The tower’s nine-storey high solid base includes the retail space and the hotel amenities. The basement provides two additional floors of retail space and three floors of parking facilities. At floor 34, the building is split into two slender volumes that become slimmer as they rise, offering panoramic views of the city.
As a dynamic addition to Shanghai’s skyline, the visually striking presence of the building is emphasized by its iconic tops, designed in a distinctive “modern-classical” style with elements of art déco reminiscence. RBTA’s design for Shang Xian Fang building resonates with Shanghai’s rich architectural heritage while incorporating a subtle sense of modernity.

Renderings for this project have been around since at least 2015. First version was 54 floors tall, but now has been reduced to 47 an the desing is more simple. I went to the site this morning and took these photos, the area around the site has fences for subway construction, but construction of the building should begin soon, the area where the building will rise is already demolished.

Love this tower: perfect proportions, minimalist detailing, and (what appears to be) good street activation.

Its good to bring in a bit of good, solid, old-fashioned architecture to Shanghai.
