CITY CROSSING [SHENZHEN, CHINA] RTKL WAS COMMISSIONED TO DESIGN A WORLD-CLASS MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT IN THE HEART OF THIS THRIVING METROPOLIS. THE THREE-PART, 77,000-SM PLAN HAS AN APPEALING MIX OF RETAIL, RESIDENTIAL AND HOSPITALITY OPTIONS AND SERVES AS A FLAGSHIP MODEL FOR FUTURE PROJECTS OF ITS KIND. The business-oriented section of the development contains a 32-story office tower, metro station and urban park. The middle section contains the bulk of the development’s additional retail and entertainment options, and progresses into the southern division through a series of landscaped plazas, water features and pedestrian-friendly streetscapes. Conceived as an urban neighborhood, the southern section of the project showcases a 300-room hotel and terraced, lower-height residential buildings that offer scenic views of the surrounding landscape. Bold, expressive design elements are consistent throughout the project, establishing the development as a focal point for the city of Shenzhen.
