Perkins Eastman designed an office building for the China Overseas Property Group Co. Ltd. at the Chengdu China Overseas International Center. Designed to be the signature structure in Chengdu, within the heart of the China International Center, this project symbolizes the firm’s culture and core values of “integrity, innovation, practicality, and excellence.” The project is a mixed-use development including a high-end retail mall and hotel-style business apartments. The concept design of the International Center complex responds to its immediate context, completing the precinct master plan, and was designed to create a unique and lively destination with a strong sense of place.The project site is located in the new South City CBD District, located on the south side of Jincheng Avenue—the major east-west axis within the new precinct that terminates in the administrative campus of the district. Jincheng Avenue was developed as a large urban room and is the major commercial axis within the district. Chengdu China Overseas International Center, developed on the east side of the site opposite the retail and residential phase on the west side, is the last piece of this large urban move.
