Callison designs signature mixed-use development in Shanghai 

Located at the gateway to the renowned Nanjing Road shopping district, Hong Yi Plaza, a contemporary 59,987 square-meter (666,455 sf.) mixed-use development, is a defining landmark of China’s largest commercial center. The 21-storey office tower atop seven-levels of retail and entertainment replaces under-utilized retail space with mid-to-upper market retail and office space for world-class global retailers. Characterized by bold, contemporary, state-of-the-art urban mixed-use design and technology, the plaza is inspired by New York’s Times Square with an exterior 22-meter tall LED media wall, wrap-around electronic Jumbotron, and strategic layering of light embedded into the exterior of the retail podium. The energy and excitement creates a dynamic destination for visitors. Positioned among rows of historic low-rise buildings along Nanjing Road, the elliptical-shaped office tower embodies a restrained and striking elegance. Curved layers of glass encapsulate and frame the tower, creating distinct visibility in the Shanghai skyline. Callison provided architecture, landscape architecture, master planning, lighting, retailing planning and environmental graphic design services for the project. The firm has a strong portfolio totaling over 70 significant urban projects throughout the country including Shanghai’s Grand Gateway, a 306,600 square meter (3.3 million sf.) retail, residential, hotel and office mixed-use development.
