HASSELL appointed as design partner to develop Qianhai Mawan Mile, a critical urban area of Shenzhen

Architectural firm, HASSELL, has been appointed as design partner for a new mixed-use development area in Shenzhen. HASSELL's winning concept for the Silk Road Corridor (formerly Qianhai Mawan Mile) in the new Qianhai business district, proposes a new community space combining parklands, cultural buildings and a 1.6km-long skydeck that weaves its way above and links the whole development.

The deck, according to the developers, will function as a "boulevard in the sky" connecting the area with the wider city street network, and features a cycling and jogging path. The Mawan site is the only location in Qianhai that has multiple metro stations and a high-speed rail link, forming a major public transport node.

The Mawan masterplan concept consists of four layers that form an integrated and well defined new public place: above and below ground neighbourhood zones, a continuous park and a series of pavilion buildings.

"We are working with both China Merchants and the government authorities now to further develop the scheme," said HASSELL principal Dennis Ho. "We know that it will change and what we proposed during the competition stage is a starting point, and we're looking forward to the design process together with our key stakeholders."
