Wangjing SOHO wins Best Tall Building China Excellence Award from CITAB/CTBUH

The 2016 Best Tall Building China Awards are given by the China International Exchange Committee for Tall Buildings (CITAB) and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), with the support of the Architectural Society of China and the Architectural Society of Shanghai. Based on the CTBUH worldwide tall building program, the CITAB-CTBUH China Tall Building Awards acknowledges the teams responsible for the most successfully executed high-rise projects in China. Recognizing innovative design, sustainability considerations, life safety, and contributions to the urban habitat, the China Awards Jury honoured projects that exhibit processes and innovations that add to the profession of design and enhance the cities and lives of their inhabitants.

Wangjing SOHO’s design integrates with its context. Beijing’s rapidly developing IT and telecommunications sectors have established Wangjing as an important employment, residential, transport, educational and cultural hub in the north-east of Beijing; integral to the multi-modal urban plan for the capital that does not impact existing social and infrastructure networks in the centre of the city. A 521,265m² mixed-use development consisting of three towers 118, 127, and 200 meters in height, Wangjing SOHO’s design brings together the surrounding community in a new 60,000m² public park. With all units in Wangjing SOHO’s towers 1 and 2 sold before completion, the adaptability of its interiors enabled Soho China to successfully develop a new business model. Catering to the city’s growing IT sector and start-ups, SOHO China now provides units in Tower 3 on popular short-term leases booked via their ‘SOHO 3Q’ smartphone app.
