The retail podium, internal planning and design shape the atriums and circulation paths to enhance efficient travel throughout the centre. Well-proportioned volumes transfer natural light to all levels, where light is so often lacking in the ubiquitous shopping mall box. There are eight lively floors full of the latest fashion, lifestyle and food and beverage which add energy to the spaces and highlight the centre’s personality. The result is a contemporary yet classic aesthetic, making Raffles City Shanghai one of the preferred shopping malls for fashionable young people in Shanghai. It is also a popular destination for tourists.
The mall forms part of an integrated development, that also features a 51-storey office A grade tower. Three subway lines link directly to the centre to cement the development into the city’s infrastructure and assist in the creation of this world-class shopping and business destination.
Raffles City retail was designed by Buchan and documented by P&T Consultants.
