KlingStubbins develops concept study for Guangzhou's central business district
Poly Real Estate Group recently contracted KlingStubbins to develop a concept for F2-2, a lot jointly owned with XianCun Village. The 141,000sq m development includes 35,000sq m of retail and 106,000sq m of speculative office space. Although the owners have decided to manage the retail and underground parking together, they want clearly defined and separated office towers so each can manage/rent/sell these office spaces independently. The “L” shape configuration formed by two towers becomes integral to the whole spatial sequence of Guangzhou’s “new axis.” This interlocked massing also reflects the cooperative relationship of two owners both symbolically and programmatically.
