• Shanghai’s New Heart of Urban Living

    30 December 2020

    The Experience Lounge has been officially unveiled at Taikoo Li Qiantan, a new retail complex jointly developed by Swire Properties and Lujiazui Group in Pudong, Shanghai.   

    The 430-sqm open-plan lounge showcases the planning and design of Taikoo Li Qiantan and its vision to become the “Heart of Urban Living” in Shanghai, whilst also taking visitors on a wellness journey that demonstrates the new development’s commitment to providing a quality lifestyle experience.   

    Major design highlights include a double-deck open space created both on the ground level and on the rooftop. The ground level features an 8,000-sqm- central green axis, spanned by an 80-metre-long scenic bridge from which customers can overlook the scenery of Qiantan Park and the Huangpu River. The rooftop features a 450-metre track with greenery and leisure spaces that connect with the surrounding retail shops.

    Designed by renowned US architecture and planning practice 5+ Design, with the landscape designed by Singapore-based landscape design consultant­ Tierra, the development is set for completion by the end of 2020 and is scheduled to open in 2021.
