As we continue to invest in our practice in the Greater China region, we are expanding in size and scope of our work. To accommodate this growth, the Gensler Shanghai office is relocating to the newly-opened One Museum Place.
One Museum Place, located next to the New Natural History Museum and Shanghai Sculpture Park, is a Gensler-designed addition to the Jing’An skyline. It is also a culmination of an exciting design journey shared with Hines, the building owner and Gensler design client. This building is driven by Hines’ vision of a world-class grade A office building that delivers exceptional ecological performance, and naturally integrates with Jing’An as a district, including the Natural History Museum, the iconic Sculpture Park, and the transportation network, and also provides food & beverage and other lifestyle amenities in a 25, 000 square meter retail podium. Together, we have been able to re-envision and co-create a building of exceptional quality, efficiency, while creating an iconic addition to the Shanghai skyline.
Designed as an expression of Shanghai as a site of constant interweaving of tradition and modernity, the tower emphasizes efficiency, sustainability, and ecological responsibility that enhances the built environment. As the designer of the building, Gensler was very excited to be the first office tenant within this new iconic project, joining major financial, media, and investment firms in the building.
Integrating directly Natural History Museum Station of Subway Line 13 , the office and retail/food & beverage facilities will be the center of the Museum Place Area, integrating with the nearby park and museum, making this a truly “live, work, play” project. Given the multiple favorable elements of this location and project, Gensler was all too happy to join the first wave of leasing for office space as quickly as possible.
