Raffles City Chongqing recently welcomed over 900,000 eager shoppers through its doors across three days for the soft opening of its retail podium. The development features over 400 stores including flagship, concept, and hospitality tenancies, set within actively curated precincts which cultivate a clear sense of place and facilitate opportunities for shoppers to connect.
The 235,000m² shopping podium can be accessed by a 24-hour staircase which runs along the central spine of the building, encouraging a continuous flow of energy into the space. More than just a thoroughfare, the design of the staircase also features cultural content to entice visitors to the shopping centre and engage them in its surroundings.
Buchan provided retail planning and interior design services from inception to completion for this world-class mixed-use development for our client CapitaLand China Holdings, working in close collaboration with Safdie Architects.
