Project Info

This multi-award winning scheme is the largest built project by Chapman Taylor, one of the leading architectural practices in China.

Opened in 2013, Global Harbor Shanghai is a 480,000m2 commercial complex located in the central area of Shanghai.

Opened in 2013, Global Harbor Shanghai is a 480,000m2 commercial complex located in the central area of Shanghai, China, on an important transportation hub. The scheme comprises a 270,000m2 shopping centre and two 245 metre high office, hotel and apartment towers above a 4-storey podium. There is a three-level basement, two levels for shopping and one for parking. The architectural façade was designed with a neoclassical approach, and these principles have been followed strictly from composition to division, with simplifications made to the detailing to ensure the project meets the requirements of the modern age and the commercialisation aspect.

Italian Renaissance and natural romantic styles have been adopted in the interior design which features a large interior space that has been divided into 3 distinguished atrium spaces; Sun Plaza at the south end which adopts the classical style of ancient Greece and Rome to create a magnificent internal space, Central Plaza in the middle which adopts the classic, romantic and exotic style of Italian Venice with exquisite decorations and the north Garden Court utilises patterns of natural green plants to provide a relaxing feel to the visitor.
