Lippo Plaza is located in the heart of Shanghai’s commercial and shopping district. The plaza is strategically sited between the famous Central Huaihai shopping street and Jinling Road that faces Yanzhong Park at the northeast side. The building is visible from the elevated Yan’an Expressway and North-South Expressway.
The distinct façade contributes to the shopping district’s vibrant streetscape and skyline, and transforms Lippo Plaza into a jewel in the Central Huaihai Road commercial belt. The special glass material of the podium façade not only brings reflection and transparency to the building, but also creates a distinct identity in the neighbourhood. At night, the podium’s up-lighting effect gives better visibility to the tower from a distance.
Visually connected with other surrounding urban nodes, Lippo Plaza is designed to complement Xintiandi Plaza, Times Square, Shanghai Plaza and other malls in the shopping district, and to enliven the sophisticated metropolitan ambience along Central Huaihai Road, further enhancing its reputation as a leading fashion street in the world.
