Shanghai Guoson Centre is situated within the Changfeng Ecological Business District, in the Putuo district. It is well positioned at the crossroads of the Zhongshan Park, Gubei and Hongqiao commercial districts, near the Hongqiao integrated transportation hub which provides superb intercity connectivity. The integrated development is divided into three main components, comprising a retail mall, a five-star hotel, serviced apartments, Grade A office towers and four blocks of SOHO.
The retail mall spans the eastern side of the site addressing Changfeng Park. The office towers, hotel and serviced apartments present the main southern face of the development, clustered around a central green space. The SOHO blocks are staggered toward the northwestern part of the site and afford large green spaces between them. Seen as an extension of Changfeng Park, the nature theme extends from the landscape around the SOHO blocks to the terraced landscape of the western face of the mall.
