Award Entry

P&T Group design Metropolitan Central Business District in Tianjin 

The new Metropolitan Central Business District is located southwest of Tianjin. Its key element is the iconic 597m tall, 117 storeys of 117 Goldin Financial tower, which provides international Grade-A office space and a 350-room, five-star luxury hotel at the top. 

The tower is characterised by its tapering form and rhythm of sky lobbies. It is crowned by a diamond shaped top that houses a revolving restaurant and exclusive dining. Retail facilities frame the tower to the east and west and provide a generously spacious entrance court and sense of arrival.

Exclusive retail situated to the north offers brand outlets in representative freestanding units. A 37-storey tall 'Mountain Tower' defines the northern boundary of the CBD and provides the visual backing to the 117 tower. Future expansions will include a representative government building to the west and corporate headquarter office buildings to the east and north.

The retail will expand further south, linking across the main vehicular artery to incorporate a mega mall, boutique hotels, serviced apartments and more headquarter office buildings. To the west along the main road, a 20,000-sq-m convention centre and retail will be situated. To the east, the development's entrance will be identified by the 50-storey gateway twin tower on either side of the road.
