From the Achitects KPF

KPF-Designed West Lake 66 Breaks Ground in Hangzhou


Situated at the point of connection between West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Grand Canal, the 194,000 square meter project seeks to reinvigorate the city’s deteriorated surrounding blocks with five office towers, a boutique hotel, public parks and an active, mixed-use podium.



To address the many changing urban conditions of this growing city and emerging technology hub, the scheme will form a new green pedestrian link between West Lake and the Grand Canal, Hangzhou’s two essential landmarks, and will provide office space suited to technology startups and young professionals.

The concept for the project was instigated by the challenges of the site, which is buried behind a main boulevard and nestled between a series of over scaled buildings,” says Jeffrey Kenoff, KPF Design Principal. The design capitalizes on this seclusion and the need to redirect pedestrian flow by carving an active greenway through the site. This green space connects the project’s four inner blocks with terraced towers and echoes the richness, datum, and scale of West Lake and its surrounding mountains.”

To determine the position of the buildings and the overall organization of the site, the team worked with KPF Urban Interface, the firm’s research and design group, to parametrically link shadow impacts, visibility from streets, unobstructed views, maximized daylight, and other key factors into an algorithm that organizes optimal massing along the greenway.

Each of the buildings’ facades is designed to optimize daylight and energy while mapping contextual references within its expression. Designed with a modular, fluid porosity, the project reflects the material heritage of the city and its craftspeople, utilizing local materials such as terracotta, stone, and wood. The project is currently seeking LEED Platinum, China Green Building Label 3 Stars, and WELL Platinum certifications.

“Inspired by the many stone walls along the West Lake, the podium wall of West Lake 66 is designed in sinuous bands of rectangular cells that tie the site together,” says Kenoff. “Each cell responds to the program within and can be updated over the lifespan of the building.”

In addition, the podium stacks a mix of uses, forming a layered program that ensures future flexibility. At the upper floors, new office space opens onto a green roof that extends the length of the podium, creating a new public sky park for the city.

“West Lake 66 has benefited from an extraordinary level of collaboration with the local planning authorities,” says Peter Gross, KPF Managing Principal. “The result is a progressive design that is architecturally compelling and technologically advanced while still keenly sensitive to the rich historic context of the West Lake district and the historic structures on this site.”

Upon completion, West Lake 66 will create a new destination for young professionals and technology startups, with elevated public green space and a thoughtful, pedestrian-focused presence at the ground plane.

Hang Lung Breaks Ground for its Landmark Project Westlake 66 in Hangzhou

“ 恒隆广场 - 杭州 ” 举行盛大开工仪式




HONG KONG, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hang Lung Properties today held the ground-breaking ceremony for its project Westlake 66 in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province, marking the official debut of the Company's 11th large-scale commercial development on the Mainland. Westlake 66 is situated at the prime location of Bai Jing Fang in the Xiacheng District of Hangzhou, the only remaining large-scale site for commercial development in the district, with a site area of approximately 44,800 square meters and a gross floor area of approximately 194,100 square meters. The ground-breaking marks a new milestone for the Company's portfolio expansion on the Mainland.

杭州 2019年9月17日 /美通社/ -- 恒隆地产位于杭州的“恒隆广场·杭州”项目今天举行盛大开工仪式,庆祝公司于内地第11个大型商业项目正式启动。此项目位处杭州下城区繁盛的黄金地段百井坊,为区内仅剩的大型商业综合体地块,工地面积约44,800平方米,地上总楼面面积(计容积率)约194,100平方米,项目开工标志着恒隆地产在内地的业务发展迈向新里程。

The ceremony was hosted by Mr. Ronnie C. Chan, Chairman, Mr. H.C. Ho, CFO, Mr. Adriel Chan, Executive Director, and senior management of Hang Lung Properties, as well as Mr. Liu Ying, Secretary of the CPC District Committee of Xiacheng District, Hangzhou, Mr. Chai Shimin, Deputy Secretary of the CPC District Committee and District Governor of Xiacheng District, Hangzhou, and other government officials of Hangzhou.

开工仪式由恒隆地产有限公司董事长陈启宗先生、首席财务总监何孝昌先生、执行董事陈文博先生及一众管理层,以及杭州市下城区委书记刘颖先生、杭州市下城区委副书记、区长柴世民先生等当地政府领导主持。

Mr. Ronnie C. Chan said at the ceremony, "As one of the new first-tier cities, Hangzhou is one of China's wealthiest cities with rapid economic growth. Being a leading technology and commercial hub as well as an important tourism center, the city has a big demand for high-end commercial developments. With Hangzhou's vibrant economy and consumer market, plus Hang Lung's rich business experience in nearby Shanghai and other Mainland cities, we are confident that Westlake 66 will become a top commercial complex and landmark in eastern China, bringing new impetus to the Company's business growth."

恒隆地产董事长陈启宗先生在仪式上表示:“杭州作为新一线城市,是内地经济发展最迅速及最富裕的城市之一,也是创科和商贸重地及旅游重镇,因此对于高端综合商业项目的需求殷切。以杭州充满活力的商业及消费者市场,加上恒隆地产在上海及其他内地城市丰富的营运经验,我们有信心将‘恒隆广场·杭州’打造为华东地区首屈一指的综合商业地标,并成为推动公司业务发展的新动力。”

As China's emerging first-tier city, Hangzhou's GDP per capita reached RMB1.3509 trillion in 2018, representing a 6.7% year-on-year growth and placing it the 10th among all cities in China. Its annual personal disposable income in 2018 reached RMB54,348, ranking it in top place in Zhejiang Province. The 2022 Asian Games will take place in this vibrant city.

杭州作为新一线城市,2018年的地区生产总值达人民币13,509亿,按年增长百份之6.7,在全国城市中排名第十;而全年居民人均可支配收入达人民币54,348元,居全浙江省首位。2022年亚运会将会在此举行。

Hang Lung acquired the land site in May 2018. Investment for the project is estimated to reach approximately RMB19 billion. Westlake 66 is located in the center of Bai Jing Fang, which is well served by transport infrastructure and public amenities with high passenger flow. The site will be developed into a high-end commercial complex comprising a world-class shopping mall, five Grade A officer towers and a luxury hotel. The project is planned for completion in phases from 2024.

恒隆地产于2018年5月投得此商业综合体地块,预计投资总额约为人民币190亿。“恒隆广场·杭州”位处百井坊的核心,区内交通基建及配套完善,人流畅旺,将发展为一个高端综合商业项目,包括一座购物商场、五座甲级办公楼及一座高级酒店,项目将于2024年分阶段落成。

The inspiration of the design of Westlake 66 comes from the famous natural scenery of Hangzhou's West Lake. Integrating with the scenic landscape and the city's historical heritage, and complemented by abundant public green spaces, the development is destined to become a world-class landmark. The shopping mall will have a rooftop garden together with the unique green spaces that will connect with the neighboring urban elements, thereby resulting in an integration of nature with the city's metropolitan ambience. The elegant cluster of Westlake 66's towers will be a dazzling addition to the skyline of Hangzhou. The project also preserves two ancient artefacts and some historical buildings, reaffirming Hang Lung's principle of protecting the nation's cultural and architectural history in our business operations.

“恒隆广场·杭州”的设计灵感来自杭州市的西湖文化景观,将秀丽风景元素结合人文历史,再配合广阔公共绿化空间,打造一座地标性的国际级建筑。购物商场的顶部为空中花园,这个市内独一无二的公共绿化空间与周边的城市脉络相连,把大自然与城市融合。大楼的设计优雅灵动,打造出错落有致的建筑群,丰富了杭州的天际线。项目同时结合两座保育建筑及历史遗址,贯彻恒隆地产坚持在营运业务的同时,也竭力保留和保育国家的文化和建筑历史的理念。
