Chengdu Joy City
120,000SM Retail/Entertainment facility, includes SOHO office, shopping center, multiplex movie theater, entertainment facilities, lifestyle shopping
For the client’s first foray into mixed-use development in southwest China, CallisonRTKL was tasked with a daunting challenge: turn an otherwise dormant site into a thriving center of leisure, entertainment, culture and creativity. Joy City Joy Park is a new paradigm of lifestyle center experience, which appealed to the locals’ love for the outdoors. The inside-out shopping center, an architectural reinterpretation of Sizchuan’s beloved scenic treasure Jiuzhai Valley with its colorful calcified terraces and waterfalls, offers multi-level gardens that contrast with its massive yet dynamic stone walls.
