Flagship site for international developer
The Summit Suzhou is a flagship retail project for international developers Tishman Speyer in China.
The two tower, two-site development includes apartments, office space, and a five-storey retail podium with boutiques, restaurants, health, and recreation establishments.
The main feature is the large picture window integrated with the 55m long pedestrian bridge spanning the width of a major highway. This connects the two developments, combining each separate site and retail podium visually and physically into one larger and more effective retail space.
Areas around the bridge are highlighted by double height spaces, with cafes and restaurants lining the periphery, creating an enriching environment bustling with vibrant activity.
“Increasingly, the retail sector is looking beyond creating places where people shop - they want a real experience for the customer.”Jeremy Salmon, Board Director, Broadway Malyan
