On the banks of the Yangtze River, this mixed use office and retail development sits centrally within the new Danzishi Central Business District in Chongqing.

The brief was to create an interactive retail environment that would interact and reflect with the rich topography that Chongqing is renowned for. The site sets many challenges with a level difference of some 10m across such a narrow site and has to cater for multiple level pedestrian access point from elevated walkways interconnecting with adjacent developments and the Light Rail Station.
