Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Hang Lung Properties to provide façade consultancy services on Phase 3A of the Forum 66 mixed-use development in Shenyang, China.
Forum 66 is the largest of Hang Lung Propertiesâ€™ mixed-use developments currently under development on the Chinese mainland. The 861,240 sq m complex will contain premier shopping facilities, hotels, serviced apartments and offices, as well as a tower which at 350m high will be the tallest building in Shenyang. A dedicated metro station will also serve the scheme as part of Metro line 2 which has been constructed under the scheme.
Covering a total gross floor area of approximately 115,000 sq m, Phase 3A comprises a 104,000 sq m, 67-storey serviced apartment tower that stretches 265m high as well as a 11,000 sq m three-storey linked retail podium. These sit in a landscaped plaza above five levels of underground parking and building support areas.
Tim Xiong, Mott MacDonaldâ€™s project director, said: â€śForum 66 is located in close proximity to key city landmarks such as the Liaoning Grand Theatre, Museum of Liaoning Province, Municipal Government Building and City Plaza. It will be a magnificent addition to Shenyangâ€™s already vibrant landscape.â€ť
â€śAs Shenyang is in the north of China we will need to develop a high performance thermal insulation façade system so it can withstand the extremely cold winters the city faces,â€ť Tim added.
Phase 3A of Forum 66 is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
