Integrated family destination
Broadway Malyan was commissioned to provide Masterplanning and Architectural design services for a mixed-use project located in the new city area of Hefei, China.
The landmark retail-led mixed-use project includes a 70,000m² shopping mall on 5 levels, a 15,000m² supermarket on basement level and a 45,000m² office tower which has a cinema, food court and restaurant incorporated on its roof.
The design concept, inspired by the sea, uses the form of wave-tops in the design of the canopies and carefully considers the relationship of the individual buildings while the original layout was inspired by the historic textures of the site’s agricultural land.
The site is connected to a Metro station and integrated through well-designed public realm and landscaping that highlights the contours of the site and carefully considers the relationships between the different buildings, creating exciting streets to draw people into the area.
“"It is positioned as a leisure and shopping destination for young families, and the mix of uses and design was carefully thought out to ensure that they all complemented each other."”Jeremy Salmon, Director, Broadway Malyan
