Shanghai Tower Retail Podium

Shanghai, China

As part of the design for the dramatic 128-story Shanghai Tower in Shanghai’s Lujiazui financial district, Gensler incorporated a multi-story retail podium comprising a mix of premium luxury-brand flagships, one-of-a-kind specialty retailers and high-concept dining venues. A curved glazed façade merges the inside and out, bringing in daylight to enliven the space and draw attention to the myriad shopping and dining opportunities. Slated for completion in the summer of 2016, the building has already achieved both LEED® Platinum certification and a China Green Building Three Star rating.
