THE RING, CHINA LEAD8


Lead8 has celebrated the opening of The Ring in Chongqing; a “ground-breaking ecological retail destination” that features one of China’s largest indoor botanic gardens. The development is claimed as a first for the city, as a place that “intertwines retail, nature, culture and experience.” The 42 metre high botanical garden is combined with interactive sports and culture, and a creative tenant mix to offer a mix of attractions not yet seen before in Chongqing. The development occupies 430,000 m2 approximately 154,000 m2 111,000 m2


with dedicated to the seven-level mall, 14,000 m2 to the ‘super grade A’ office building, and 6,000 m2 to the retail street, to the indoor botanical garden.


The interior design centres on a ‘Mountain City’ concept; “bringing together natural environments with enriched engagement and experiential opportunities to create a diversified lifestyle offer.” The architects commented: “Environmental protection technologies were used to construct the green ecological experience, producing an oasis for the city.” Complementing the indoor gardens, specialty activity hubs such as the ‘Free+’ dynamic sporting facility and the ‘Open Lab’, a calm public space for reading and gathering, help meet the diverse demands of “changing consumer preferences,” said the architects.


MARINA TOWER, GREECE FOSTER + PARTNERS


ONE BEVERLY HILLS, LOS ANGELES FOSTER + PARTNERS


One Beverly Hills is a striking and dynamic mixed-use urban-resort in the heart of the famous district of LA. The 17.5-acre site is currently one of the largest and most environmentally advanced projects underway in the United States. One Beverly Hills will add three environmentally sustainable buildings to the site: two residential condominium towers and a third building housing a 42 ‘all-suite’ luxury hotel and 37 shared ownership condominiums. All of this is set around eight acres of botanical gardens that will be planted at the heart of the site. Foster + Partners is leading the One Beverly Hills masterplan with Los Angeles based multi-disciplinary design firm RIOS overseeing landscape architecture. One Beverly Hills will “seamlessly integrate” the existing Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills into a unified 17.5-acre site. A new 38,000 ft2 conference centre will be equipped with sophisticated technology and enhanced with “unique breakout areas” that capitalise on the Southern California weather. Joining the established hotels will be a new 10 storey building that will include 42 ‘all-suite’ guest accommodations, a fine dining restaurant and 37 shared ownership condominiums.


The designs for Marina Tower, claimed to be the first ‘green’ high-rise building in Greece, have been revealed. Located in the Agios Kosmas marina area and one of Ellinikon’s first architectural landmarks, Marina Tower will not only be the tallest building in Greece, but also the tallest green beachfront high-rise building in the Mediterranean, said the architects. With “dominant green and water features,” as well as natural light and unobstructed sea views, the building “brings an innovative design approach to the region.” Rising to 200 metres above sea level, Marina Tower will have 200 apartments on 45 floors. Foster + Partners commented: “The key characteristic of the design approach is the creation of a building with a slim silhouette, that harmonically blends with the natural environment and the special character of the Mediterranean landscape.”
