The project is located on the western edge of Shanghai in Changning District, which has seen explosive growth for office buildings and mixed-use developments. Once heavily polluted and used primarily for industrial purposes, Suzhou Creek along the north side of the building is now being embraced as an urban asset, and significant government resources are being employed to clean the creek, restore natural water features, and provide public access. The Gensler design team saw this as an opportunity to connect urban life to nature, lifting the entire north wing of the building to create a green walkway that connects the site to a new system of public riverfront parks.
