Atkins unveils mixed-use towers in Shenyang

Atkins has released images of a supertall office scheme in north-east China

The practice, which has offices across the UK and China, has designed the Baoneng Shenyang Global Financial Centre in Shenyang.

The £1 billion development consists of two towers – the 565m high Pearl of the North and its 328m high sister building.

Pearl of the North will contain 111 floors, accommodating class A offices and other amenities including a luxury executive club.

The 328-metre tower will host 34 floors of office with a 320-room five star luxury hotel above them.

KY Cheung, senior architectural design director at Atkins in the Asia Pacific region, said: ‘Our client challenged us to design a supertall building that is iconic, yet simple in structure.

‘In addition to meeting seismic codes and international standards, the project has to be efficient and satisfy a tight construction schedule.’

Construction has started on site and is due for completion in 2018.

AJ reported last month that UK architects were seeing increased demand for mixed-use schemes in China.
