Laguarda.Low Architects Completes First Phase of Europark
February 15, 2017
New York-based architecture and urban planning firm Laguarda.Low Architects announced the completion of the first phase of Europark, a 3-million-sq.-ft. mixed-use complex in Dalian, China. Set on a landscaped park in the heart of Donggang’s central business district, Europark is comprised of the Galleria Mall, an apartment suites tower, two SOHO office towers, as well as two residential towers, which are planned for the second phase of construction starting in late 2017.
“Now that the first phase is complete, we are certain that the cutting-edge architectural style, contemporary design and endless retail options in this complex will attract attention throughout the region,” said John Low, principal of Laguarda.Low Architects.
The Galleria Mall serves as the first European style shopping center in Donggang, Dalian, and officially opened to the public in August 2015. The mall is situated at the center of the site and encompasses four levels of retail, including an H&M, Zara, Nike, adidas and an IMAX theater—all arranged around a central expansive skylight, permeating daylight to all levels.
In partnership with landscape design firm SWA, Europark also features the biggest green park in Donggang.
