Client Lingang Development Group
Gross floor area 36,000 m²
The future intention is for the Lingang Group and the Information Center of the Lingang Heavy Industry Zone to share the building complex. A four-story L-shaped block encloses the courtyard on the north and west sides, reinforced by two additional floors in the north-west. The latter form a visual counterweight to the high-rise block, balancing the overall composition.
