Heller Manus Architects informed us that its 26-story commercial high-rise tower currently under construction in Shanghai was awarded LEED Gold Precertification under the LEED-Core and Shell (LEED-CS) program. The building at 1080 East Dondaming is the first of the LEED-CS program that has been precertified in Shanghai, China. Final LEED Gold certification of the high-rise will be awarded after an independent document review by the USGBC following the building’s completion.
Heller_ManusThe site is located 2 blocks from the Huangpu River in the old Jewish Quarter of Shanghai and has dramatic views of the Pudong and Bund districts. Extensively landscaped outdoor areas and a grand lobby create an inviting environment that reflects the openness and flexibility which are key concepts of the design. Unimpeded circulation throughout these spaces is also a main consideration for the project. The multi-use building plan consists of a 120 meter high office tower with rooftop garden over a 21 meter high podium containing a health club with pool, conference and banquet facilities and ground floor retail as well as a separate 10 meter high retail building.
