Oriental Times Plaza in Anshan nearing completion
Anshan Tianxing Investment Development is preparing to open its first Oriental Times Plaza in Anshan, a city in eastern China.
The complex’s 32 floors will include a luxury shopping centre, hotel, cinemas, restaurants, children’s education facilities and cultural areas.
Design firm JHP was commissioned to design the entire experience, including the retail vision, architecture, interior design, planning and visual merchandising strategy.
As a result of its vast steelworks, Anshan is known as the “City that Built China”. As such, OTP is intended to attract tourists and businesspeople as well as locals. The city is also renowned as a plentiful source of jade.
With rich natural finishes, textured surfaces and filtered light, the design of Oriental Times Plaza in Anshan is intended to celebrate China’s sense of heritage and pride.
The Oriental Times Plaza complex is due to open in October and is expected to generate RMB1.5 billion (US$212.77 million) in annual sales revenue.
