Shanghai EDGE is a prime mixed-use development at the heart of Shanghai, the project revitalises the old city blocks along Suzhou Creek. The stepping geometry derived from setbacks is used to create roof terraces. Located right next to the metro station, a mega cantilevered box containing retail programme defines a public plaza. By releasing nearly 4,000 square metre open space back to the city, the design clearly addresses its gateway position with its connectivity and permeability. The project adopts features of sustainable building design and achieved a LEED Gold pre-certification.
