A world-beating mixed-use, retail and leisure destination

Winner of 'Best Retail Architecture in the World' Award at the International Property Awards, 2014-15, Global Harbor is a 480,000m² commercial complex located in the central area of Shanghai, on an important transportation hub.

One of the largest projects built by Chapman Taylor

Opened in 2013, Global Harbor comprises a 270,000m² shopping centre and two 245 metre-high office, hotel and apartment towers, above a 4-storey podium. Added to this is a three-level basement, two levels for shopping and one for parking. 

400 brands have leased units in Shanghai’s first large-scale commercial scheme that incorporates a major cultural heritage component within a shopping complex.

Neoclassical design approach

The architectural façade of Global Harbor follows a neoclassical design approach. Internally, Italian Renaissance and natural romantic styles have been used, featuring a large interior space divided into 3 distinguished atrium spaces. At the southern end, Sun Plaza adopts the classical style of ancient Greece and Rome to create a magnificent internal space. In the middle, Central Plaza offers the classic, romantic and exotic style of Italian Venice, with exquisite decorations. The north Garden Court uses patterns of natural green plants to provide a relaxing environment for visitors.

Chapman Taylor's London and Shanghai offices worked on the project consistently for six and a half years from day one until opening in July 2013.
