Taikoo Li Qiantan is the first retail wellness center of its kind, located in the middle of the new Qiantan Masterplan on the Huangpu River and south of the Shanghai Expo. Taikoo Li's layered approach to retail combines principles of biophilic design and wellness, spread across 3.5 million square meters. At the highest level, a 450-meter-long outdoor running track weaves between the shops, serving as the main circulation path and a 50-meter-long, two-level Scenic Bridge that links the project's two enclosed retail spaces: Stone House to the North and Wood House to the South.
