The Gubei District in Shanghai is a bustling neighborhood with a growing community of expatriates and their families. SWA was selected to conceptualize, design, and realize a pedestrian mall (Gold Street) to create an iconic presence and to enliven the area. The mall occupies three city blocks, flanked by 20-story high-rise residential towers with retail at street level and book-ended by SWA-designed parks. Plazas, water features, a cafĂŠ, dining and retail terraces, an amphitheater, and a monumental tree-lined raised terrace attract focus and activity.
