Spring City 66 sets a new standard for dynamic mixed-use developments in Kunming, designed for high performance while maximizing energy conservation. A landscaped promenade recalls the region’s valleys, while an undulating retail podium and crag-like towers nod to the notable limestone formations of the nearby Stone Forest. The retail, office, and serviced apartments are woven together on multiple levels of terraces around the promenade. These connective terraces are lined with shops and restaurants to create a vibrant destination whose sum is greater than the individual parts.
