Goettsch Part­ners ( GP) has re­cently an­nounced the start of con­struc­tion for Changchun CR Cen­ter, a ma­jor mixed- use com­plex with a strik­ing 980ft tower in Changchun, the cap­i­tal city of China’s north- eastern Jilin Prov­ince. De­signed by GP with in­ter­na­tional ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign firm Lead8, the project rep­re­sents the third col­lab­o­ra­tion of the two de­sign firms with de­vel­oper- owner China Re­sources Land Lim­ited. GP is de­sign­ing the main tower, and Lead8 is de­sign­ing the re­tail and en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre.

Plans for the de­vel­op­ment of the 34,000sq m par­cel in Changchun com­prise mul­ti­ple tow­ers, in­clud­ing of­fice space, high- end res­i­den­tial units and fully fur­nished ser­viced apart­ments. In ad­di­tion, new ‘ sig­na­ture spa­ces’, in­clud­ing a 66th- floor ob­ser­va­tion deck at the tower’s lu­mi­nous crown, are de­signed to draw vis­i­tors to the site over­look­ing the ad­ja­cent Mu­dan Yuan park and lake. The Changchun CR Cen­ter will be an­chored by an in­no­va­tive, 1.8 mil­lion sq ft re­tail and en­ter­tain­ment com­plex. CR Land will oc­cupy the 63- storey, 1.5 mil­lion sq ft of­fice tower with its own re­gional head­quar­ters, with di­rect con­nec­tion to the sub­way.

Slated to open in 2021, the com­plex and sig­na­ture tower for Changchun CR Cen­ter will bring a dis­tinc­tive façade and a highly vis­i­ble il­lu­mi­nated crown to the city’s sky­line— a bold state­ment that will de­fine a land­mark in the de­vel­op­ing met­ro­pol­i­tan area, which is home to about half of the re­gion’s to­tal pop­u­la­tion of 7.7 mil­lion.

An­chor­ing the de­vel­op­ment at the tower’s base is the MixC RDE Cen­ter, Lead8’ s in­no­va­tive con­cept for China’s pop­u­lar MixC brand: a re­tail and en­ter­tain­ment com­plex that el­e­vates the tra­di­tional shop­ping cen­tre. In­spired by Changchun’s cul­ture and in­flu­enced by the tem­per­ate cli­mate, the dy­namic, ex­pe­ri­en­tial life­style cen­tre fea­tures an in­te­grated re­tail street where vis­i­tors will en­joy lux­ury brand stores, pop- up ex­hi­bi­tions and fine- din­ing func­tions year- round.
