In an emerging residential area in Chengdu’s Longquan, eastern green out skirt district, Yangshi Square’s 98,748 m2 mixed-use project establishes the first piece of a vibrant urban destination for the new community. The 36-story taller structure comprises 33 floors of class A office space while the shorter structure houses 30 floors of serviced apartments and a hotel. The top 7 floors, bridged to the office tower, are programmed as the hotel’s banquet facilities and meeting rooms. At low-rise, 20,850 m2 commercial space includes restaurants, entertainment and retail in three floors where a 4,200m2 cinema adopts bulk of the 3rd floor area.
The primary challenge laying out the master plan demanded overcoming the commercially-unfavorable deep land shape and resulted orienting the plot to the corner. An internal diagonal street cutting the land in half, is placed to drag further traffic detouring to the project’s core therefore vitalizing distant commercial parts.
