Construction on Raffles City Changning in Shanghai is complete, unveiling the world-class retail design of acclaimed Australasian architecture firm The Buchan Group. Working collaboratively with P&T Architects from Hong Kong, The Buchan Group was responsible for the planning and interior design of the retail podium.
Raffles City Changning comprises two retail podiums, three office towers and five heritage buildings restored from the former St Mary’s School — the first girls’ school in Shanghai — and will be a lifestyle destination that combines both new buildings and the site’s existing heritage buildings. The integrated development will feature a large shopping mall, gourmet supermarket, cinema, restaurants and entertainment experiences. The significant retail project is the second Raffles City development in Shanghai for CapitaLand, one of Asia’s largest real estate companies.
