Future Project 

Spanning 800 meters across five plots, the project is a large-scale retail development located in Nanjing, China, aiming to create a seamless and accessible environment designed by Woods Bagot and SEU ARCH (Plot 1,5 and 6).

Situated amidst the 400-year-old commercial hub of Middle Street and the historic Mukden Palace, the project is a modern interpretation of a palace square, fostering a community spirit and cutting-edge retail in northeastern China. The design encapsulates the city’s legacy while embracing future trends, featuring the “Mega Loop” for a seamless retail experience and a striking façade that pays homage to local heritage.

Completed in 2022, the project stands on the site of the historic Tianjin Thermal Factory, integrating the past with the present in a dynamic blend of retail, lifestyle, ecology, culture, and education. The concept of transformation was central to the project’s design philosophy, leading to the creation of a modern commercial complex that respects the site’s history as the city’s first electricity-generating plant.
