Galaxy Bay East is located in Shenyang China, along a river prominently running within the city . With combined GFA of 2.9 million sq ft, the MLP is composed mainly of high-end residential, commercial, hotel, clubhouse and kindergarten. Buildings are arranged to terrace down, reducing to merely 2-3 storey villa as it nears the river front. Spaces in between are kept as large as possible, to accommodate green spaces, and as well as keep maximum sunlight penetration for all residential units. Skyline for hi-rise towers has rational taper towards the center, to help emphasize the central axis towards the river. The development will rise in 5 Phases.Client gave a green light for SD development of Phase 1 (13 buildings) which begins by 2nd Quarter 2011.

All of which is based on a spreadsheet from clients requirements. By identifying points of interest that works and doesnt, the design and spreadsheet numbers is referenced back and forth in cyclical process until desired result is achieved.
