Ningbo New World | New World China | World Design Awards 2023

New World China: Winner of World Design Awards 2023. Ningbo New World is a large-scale transit-oriented development (TOD) complex situated in Sanjiangkou – the heart of Ningbo, covering a land area of around 100,000 square meters and a gross floor area of approximately 850,000 square meters. It features a super office tower and brand-new landmark, as well as an art mall – THE PARK by K11 Select. It seamlessly integrates Grade-A office buildings, international brand hotels, luxury residences, characteristic cultural blocks, a central art park, and other various operations. It’s a key project in Ningbo City. Phase I construction of the condominium has already been completed and a landmark building complex of approximately 200,000 square meters has been launched. By creating a CBD building cluster in the bustling hub of Ningbo Sanjiang Six Shores area, Ningbo New World will contribute to building Ningbo into an international metropolis and refresh the image of the city.

Core CBD of Sanjiangkou

Located in the prosperous Sanjiangkou Area, this project emphasizes the integration of “Sci-tech Innovation, Finance and Cultural Creativity”. Its objective is to construct a trendy East Bund zone that improves and activates urban functions, thus contributing to the efforts of Yinzhou in constructing the central vitality zone of the modern coastal metropolis. The project has utilized a multi-dimensional transportation system and referred to the design of connecting corridors in Central, Hong Kong, to ensure one-stop connectivity within the business ecosystem, seamlessly connect to Metro Line 1 and urban main roads, and empower businesses with its all-round supporting facilities and services.

Ningzhu Mansion Upscale Residential Community

The eight upscale residential buildings have been completed, featuring sedate and magnificent facades constructed of high-quality stone-texture paint, aluminum plate, and large-area glass, which echoes the urban spirit of Sanjiangkou Area. The residential community features a large “sky garden” in the middle, which is on the second floor of the Ningbo New World. It includes multiple gardens, outdoor fitness spaces, lounge areas, and children’s play areas, forming a shared and open-air landscaped “atrium”. The sky garden follows the concept of a “three-dimensional urban ecosystem” and is connected by an elevated connecting corridor, creating a coherent and holistic space. Below the corridor is the bustling urban traffic, while on the corridor, a tranquil space shaded by flowers creates a peaceful sky terrace in the busy city. The condominium buildings appear to “grow” from the ground in the city, seamlessly blending with the urban context.

Super Grade-A Office Buildings

Grade-A Office Buildings include several buildings, represented by Ningbo New World Centre, Building 1 and Building 2 of New World Centre. Ningbo New World Centre draws inspiration from the Sanjiang River and redefines modern workplace. With a height of approximately 249 meters and 56 floors above ground, it soars into the sky with an iconic gesture, showcasing the grandeur of prominent enterprises. As a top super Grade-A office building, Ningbo New World Centre is the first project in Ningbo obtained WELL Gold Certification and LEED Gold Certification, the world’s most widely used authoritative green building rating system.

The New World Centre comprises two office buildings. Building 1 features glass curtain walls that adds a touch of luxury to the city skyline while also introducing an aesthetic interplay of light and shadow indoors, offering a breathtaking panorama of the city. Meanwhile, Building 2 draws design inspiration from Qing’an Guild Hall, a local heritage building complex which was once a temple and a gathering place for merchants. The eight-story enclosed construction are featured by sky corridors and garden terraces, creating a contemporary commercial space that integrates the spirit of Ningbo merchants and new-era architecture. The incorporation of advanced smart building systems and thoughtful services results in an exceptional forward-looking workplace.
