“Latest Trends in Chinese Outbound Capital”
Perhaps the aspect of urban development that has changed most pre- and post-2008 recession, is the interconnectedness and flow of development capital across traditional geographic borders. Developments in Sydney are as likely to be driven by forces from Shanghai as locally, and many developers in China are now investing in myriad urban centers around the world. At the forefront of this international investment trend is Swire Properties, a Hong-Kong based developer who has recently developed unique, dense, multi-use urban centers in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Miami. With urban brands such as Taikoo Hui, Taikoo Li and Brickell, these developments embrace commercial, residential, hotel, retail and myriad other uses, across geographies and cultures. In this presentation delegates learned about the motivations for these cross-cultural developments, as well as gained insight on the different opportunities and challenges faced in each locale.

The tower’s design is predominantly rectangular with wedges cut out of its southeastern and northwestern corners, giving the tower a defined presence on its most prominent street entrance along Tianhe Road. It sports a blue reflective glass façade interrupted by a series of vertical steel mullions that add tempo and regularity to the tower’s otherwise uniform exterior.
