Huangpu River and south of the Shanghai Expo, Taikoo Li Qiantan integrates biophilic

beverage offerings.
To celebrate its location, Taikoo Li Qiantan derives its overall form from the nearby
Huangpu River, utilizing soft curves and warm, natural materials that flow into each to
define the exterior.
Crowning the top level of the project is a 450-meter-long, outdoor running track that weaves between shops, functioning as the top level’s main circulation path and defining symbol of wellness within the project.

As a gateway to Shanghai’s Pudong district, the development integrates key transit stops, including three lines of which run directly underneath the project, with a fourth line opening soon.
As both a town center and an arrival point, Taikoo Li Qiantan is enhanced by a high degree of connectivity to transit within the project itself, and to the surrounding context.

Linking the North and South sides of the center is a 50 meter-long Scenic Bridge.
With
sweeping views overlooking the project’s central plaza and the greater Pudong District,
the bridge creates an experiential moment for visitors while functioning as a vital connection between the center’s upper levels.

Drawing their concepts from the natural
elements found near water, the Houses are clad in locally sourced stone and wood
materials for both their interiors and exterior facades, further connecting the project to
nature..
