Raffles City Chongqing : Completion Q4 2019
Located on an historically prominent site, at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers, the Raffles City mixed-use development draws inspiration from the city’s rich history. Although vertically organized into a series of towers, Raffles City strives to connect to the city’s existing network of densely developed existing city streets and systems.
A sky conservatory, set to be the highest skybridge in the world at the time of completion and 300 meters in length, will bridge between four towers, drawing the active public life high up into the project.
