Construction has been underway for 10 Design's Zhongxun Times in recent months in the historic city of Chongqing, China. Commissioned by the ZhongXun Group, the mixed-use office and retail development is phase one of the Danzishi Central Business District, which 10 Design masterplanned.
Corporate investors NVC-Lighting Chongqing, Energy Investment Real Estate, Sinosteel Investment Group, and ZhongXun Group developed the 14-plot scheme of the Danzishi CBD seeking economic enhancement for Chongqing -- China's largest municipality.
Zhongxun Times is expected to be complete by spring 2015.
Here's more project info from 10 Design:
"This mixed use office and retail development sits centrally within the new Danzishi Central Head Quarters in Chongqing, that sits on the banks of the Yangtze River.
The brief was to create an interactive retail environment that would interact and reflect with the rich topography that Chongqing is renowned for."
"The site set many challenges with a level difference of some 10m across such a narrow site and has to cater for multiple level pedestrian access point from elevated walkways interconnecting with adjacent developments and the Light Rail Station."
