While construction is still underway on portions of its residential community, we are thrilled to see the retail district of Suzhou Dushuhu has just been completed and is now open for business.
Suzhou Dushuhu is the centerpiece of a master-planned green city located adjacent to Dushuhu Lake, about an hour’s drive outside of Shanghai, China. Suzhou Dushuhu’s retail district includes a 43,056-square-foot shopping center and retail district, complete with an iconic four-story light tower beacon positioned to direct sight-lines to serene views of the lake beyond.
The new residential community, meanwhile, features three large parcels of land containing 36 residential towers which range in size from 12 to 19 stories high. Containing nearly 1,000 luxury condominium-style units, the towers are distinguished by their contemporary architectural styling with a Chinese Art Deco design influence, featuring limestone building materials and aluminum accent panels.
All of the residential towers have prime views of the nearby lake. In addition, residents can enjoy the convenience of two levels of underground parking which runs beneath the site and can accommodate up to 1,700 vehicles. And because there is no surface parking, the surrounding landscape is dominated by open park spaces and gardens which feature historically and culturally significant Chinese designs. The gardens are connected to the Dushuhu lakefront by a network of lakes, streams, and canals which reflect the same Chinese motifs.
Suzhou Dushuhu represents just one of DDG’s projects currently underway in Asia. JW Marriott Qingshui Bay, a resort complex, and Clearwater Harbor, a beachfront resort and yachting destination, both are under construction in Hainan, China. We are also currently hard at work on Shangri-La Hotel retail component in Colombo, Sri Lanka; Grand Kamala Lagoon mixed use residential project in Java Barat, Indonesia and Airia mixed use commercial development in Gurgaon, India.
