Be green in Beijing - 芳草地

Publié le par Marjorie Quach

2012-JULY-2233.JPG2012-JULY-2248.JPG

As a keen collector, Parkview Green will not only bring Dali, but a whole host of other valuable and notable works of art from around the world for you to enjoy year round.

2012-JULY-2306.JPGParkview Green is home to the most unique and biggest private collection of Salvador Dali’s work outside of Barcelona, placing us as a major player in the international art community. 2012-JULY-2297.JPG

The highlight of having office projects in this building is that I could visit this place on a regular basis, during site visits. 

Unlike traditional office towers, each of the towers at Parkview Green has a vestibule, open gardens and balconies, and the pedestrian bridges between the towers are integrated into a single entity so as to create a comfortable, attractive office environment.

It is actually one of China's largest sustainable architecture project and the first structure in Beijing designed to be environmentally sustainable. The building has achieved Platinium certification.

Gross Floor Area: 200 000sqm,

Height: 87m - 87000 Office space, 56000 Retail, rest is hotel and F&B. They also have an art gallery.

Sanlitun was completed in 2008 - If I remember well, just before the Olympic games (where was I hanging out in BJ before this shopping area was created?) The complex, consisting of 19 low rise buildings, is comprised of retail space and a hotel - the Opposite House. There are over 140 stores in the Village and around 70 in the North section. Pictures of this area and the hotel will come soon - I just acquired a new wide-angle lens (11-16mmm) so be ready for more architectural/interior/landcape pictures...

 

The design concept was led by the The Oval Partnership (www.ovalpartnership.com) 

Architects include: The Oval Partnership (HK), Kengo Kuma (Japan), Sako (Japan), LOT-EK (USA) and SHoP (USA)

Developer and management - Swire Properties (80% for retail, 20% is Gateway China Fund) http://www.swireproperties.com ; More about Sanlitun: http://www.sanlitunvillage.com/eng
