Spring City 66, SOHO Gubei, Victoria Dockside, the Ping An Finance Centre South Tower, and the China Resources Tower have been recognized in the prestigious awards program.
The China Real Estate and Design (CRED) Awards were founded in 2013 and have rapidly developed into an influential international program to recognize the best of the built environment in China. The five KPF-designed projects were shortlisted in the Real Estate, Office Headquarters and Real Estate, Commercial Mixed-Use categories.
Four of KPF’s projects were recognized in the Commercial Mixed-Use category:
- Spring City 66, recently opened in Kunming, China, spans more than four million square feet of mixed-used space across multiple levels of terraces lined with shops and restaurants.
- SOHO Gubei in Shanghai is inspired by the proportions of Constantin Brâncuși’s Endless Column, featuring a diagonally canted zig-zag profile with a lush natural environment that extends into the project.
- Victoria Dockside knits hotel, office, and cultural components with outdoor public space and gardens, reactivating the Tsim Sha Tsui public realm and transforming Hong Kong’s iconic city skyline.
- The Ping An Finance Centre South Tower complements its supertall neighbor, while breaking away from Shenzhen’s city grid to provide a bespoke entry for its office, hotel, and retail.
The China Resources Tower was shortlisted in the Office Headquarters category:
- The China Resources Tower is strategically positioned to overlook Shenzhen Bay and is the world’s tallest circular tower with an external column system, inspired by the organic shape of the bamboo shoot.
