An urban complex connecting two vibrant districts
‘One Infinite City’ is a large-scale dense mixed-use urban complex located in Wuhan, one of China’s emerging megalopolis, and acts as a link to connect two vibrant districts.
This project represents advancement in Broadway Malyan’s development and approach to complex mixed-use schemes in Asia with the practice providing a concept solution for a combination of residential, office and a variety of retail developments.
Two high end residential towers and a 230m Grade A office tower complete the high-rise cluster, forming a protective grouping of buildings around the retail spaces below. The office accommodation is a high performance workplace utilising technology and building management systems to reduce carbon emissions and reduce life cycle costs.
The retail solution comprises dramatic open air retail over five floors that focuses on a central event space, connecting sunken plaza spaces to below grade convenience retail. Landscaping and architecture design converge in harmony with a planting and water feature strategy designed to create a beautiful atmosphere and cooling environment, with a micro climate to provide user comfort during Wuhan’s hot summers.
