Shanghai Baoye Center Breaks Ground
LYCS Architecture's latest design of Shanghai Baoye Center, located at the Shanghai Hongqiao CBD area, broke ground on July 5. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016. This office headquarter will reach the highest three-star standard of China's green building code and the US LEED GOLD standard. It will comprehensively display the most advanced building technologies in China.
Baoye Center is part of the phase-2 urban development for the new Central Business District in Hongqiao, a rapidly developing area in west Shanghai. The location of the project puts it at the center of car, train, and jet transportation, and is in fact the last building one sees before entering the busy Hongqiao High-Speed Rail Terminal from the south by bullet train, granting the project a significant urban presence.
