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 Properties’ 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 MacDonald’s project director, said: “Forum 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 Shenyang’s already vibrant landscape.”
“As 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,” Tim added.
Phase 3A of Forum 66 is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
