Hangzhou Shimao Huajiachi

Hangzhou, China

This three-tower, mixed-use commercial development was designed to fit its prominent Hangzhou location. In a planned mixed-use corridor along the major road connecting the airport with Downtown Hangzhou and West Lake, it is bordered by Zhejiang University’s main campuses and Huajiachi Lake. With a strong street presence, a range of retail pavilions and street shops creates a dynamic environment that is especially geared to the pedestrian experience and ground-level connections to the university and surrounding communities. Shimao Huajiachi celebrates the new wave of urban life in Hangzhou, but with views to the lakes and surroundings, it also commemorates the renowned natural beauty of this Yangtze River city.
