Monday, 17 October, 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Shum Yip Upperhills, Shenzhen

The Shenzhen Networking Reception took place on Monday evening following the first day of programming in the Shenzhen segment of the Conference’s journey through the Pearl River Delta. This reception allowed delegates to network under the backdrop of one of the newest and fastest growing complexes in Shenzhen – Shum Yip Upperhills, located just north of the city’s main central business district (CBD). Hosted by Shum Yip Land and sponsored by thyssenkrupp, the reception was held in a marketing suite and terrace-level event space that showcased a model of the complex’s high-rise residential component. Outside, amid a drizzle of rain, construction on one of the site’s landmark office towers continued unabated into the night. In that sense, the complex reflected the status of the Pearl River Delta region: beautiful, constantly growing, ambitious, and rising ever towards the sky.

Located just north of Shenzhen’s main central business district, Shum Yip Upperhills is a large complex of six towers and a series of low-rise buildings surrounding an elevated pedestrian space linking two large parks directly to the east and west. The city of Shenzhen put a strong emphasizes on the interaction of the complex with pedestrians due to the location between Beacon Hill and Lotus Hill Parks. As such, the project creates a direct passage through the block linked by elevated bridges crossing the arterial roads which flank the site to the east and west.

Shum Yip Upperhills Tower 1 was from the onset designed as a pair of towers, drawing inspiration through the power of having two buildings rather than one in order to reinforce the landmark status of the highly visible project.

Designed as a columnless building with an entirely flexible interior, Shum Yip Upperhills Tower 1 was framed as a composite structure with a reinforced concrete core and two very large steel super columns on each edge of the tower with steel floorplates strung between them. This… Read More
