1000 TREES DEVELOPMENT, SHANGHAI OPENS TO THE PUBLIC
The first phase of the 1000 Trees mixed use development opened in Shanghai on 22nd December 2021. URBIS Limited has been working for several years with London based Heatherwick Studio on the landscape design of this spectacular new addition to the Shanghai skyline. Situated on the banks of Suzhou Creek in the Putuo District of the city on the site of a former floor mill, the development retains several historic structures. URBIS designed the riverside landscape, ground floor landscape, first floor terraces and the hundreds of planted ‘living columns’ which rise above the development. Construction of the larger, second phase is currently under way.
