lO (10 DESIGN) has created a new iconic destination for Huabang Holdings right in the heart of the Pazhou district, an important new CBD which will be developed to lead the City of Guangzhou into an international innovation and technology centre. This exciting new district will become a new home to many internationally renowned e-commerce giants like Tencent, Alibaba and Xiaomi.
lO is Design Architect for this landmark building, ‘Huabang International Centre’. It is a twin tower development linked by a public sky deck, rising 130m in height above Pazhou. One of the towers will be trade-marked as Huabang Headquarters whilst the other tower will accommodate a five star hotel and serviced apartment, totaling approximately 90,000 sqm GFA. The development is scheduled to welcome its office tenants and hotel guests by 2020.
Design Partner, Nick Cordingley says, “To maximise the valuable qualities of the site, lO has created a signature urban statement, an elevated public space where one can enjoy a spectacular view across the river to the striking skyline of Guangzhou. The sky deck provides a wide range of amenities for public enjoyment including al fresco dinning, a city park, an observatory deck, and a city art gallery.”
The Huabang International Centre will provide a vibrant and dynamic workplace and public destination to the internationally recognised Pazhou district.
