Nanjing Huaneng – our Shanghai office’s latest
Due for completion in 2019, this waterfront mixed-use project consists of two 150m office towers, one five-star hotel, one high-end serviced apartment building, a shopping centre, residential buildings and a landscaped boulevard culminating in a river view platform. This landmark project designed for China Huaneng Group is more than 500,000sqm and once complete, will be one of the most important developments along the Yangtze River in Nanjing. PTW are involved in the masterplan and design of the two Z-type buildings outlined in red on the image along the central axis, one being the serviced apartment building and the other the five-star hotel on the right side. Our design concept was to lower the first row of buildings from the Yangtze River to maximise the water views of the twin towers behind, thus bringing up the breeze and opening up the waterfront. The landscaped boulevard connects all the elements together, leading people from the subway to the various buildings and to the river view platform at the end of the spine.
