CapitaMall Westgate

Wuhan, Asia

Overview

Set on a 70,400m2 site, CapitaMall Westgate is one of Wuhan’s most robust downtown revitalisations.

A large sunken plaza at the major western entry point connects the towers and the adjacent residential precinct to the retail mall, whilst extensive green spaces at the entry and on roof terraces extend the public domain.

An ice rink within the entertainment complex acts as the focal point of the project, overlooked by tiered dining precincts on the floors above. A magnificent full height glass window frames the precinct, presenting views over the mall entrance and building a strong connection to the wider community.

The project involves the design of a large-scale one-stop shopping mall, roof garden, large indoor and outdoor sports stadium, large supermarket, IMAX theater, Olympic standard ice rink and children’s entertainment center, restaurants, parking spaces and the installation of elevators and security systems.

The project sets a new benchmark for developments in the region, presenting a progressive and exciting lifestyle destination for local residents, with everything they need in a single, accessible location. Retail needs were previously under-serviced for the region’s growing middle-income population, and the development has created a significant shopping hub and a social heart for people to connect.
