​Global Harbor Shanghai is Five Years Old

Chapman Taylor is delighted to report that the extraordinary and award-winning Global Harbor development in Shanghai is five years old.

Global Harbor is a 480,000m² GBA commercial complex in central Shanghai, sited above an important transport hub. 400 brands lease retail units within the 270,000m² shopping centre, which incorporates a major cultural heritage component. Two 245-metre-high towers contain offices, apartments and a 5-Star hotel.


Chapman Taylor’s London and Shanghai studios collaborated for over six years on the design of this project. Global Harbor won the ‘Best Retail Architecture in the World’ award at the International Property Awards, 2014-15, and was the winning scheme in China’s prestigious ‘Real Estate Design Awards 2015-16’.

Congratulations to our clients, Yuexing Group, and to everyone involved in turning Global Harbor into the great success that it is today.
