The Sincere Centre Phase II comprising a Grade-A office tower, a serviced apartment tower and a retail podium, is located in the core area of the Guanyinqiao business district in Chongqing. It is in close proximity to the city’s main arteries, and to its southeast stands Phase I. The architectural design is by Aedas.

The development is shaped by the mountainous terrain of Chongqing. The high-rise office towers are situated in the south, thread by a sweeping retail podium that simultaneous acts as a bridge between Phase I and Phase II as it resolves the 16-height difference between the two sites.

“We hope to create different urban interfaces to graft the development with its surroundings, to provide a plenitude of business formats and experiences, and usher in a new cultural landmark in Chongqing,” Aedas Global Design Principal Kevin Wang said.

The retail podium design is inspired by the image of a crystal hugged by the ocean, composed of transparent glass juxtaposing with the abutting slate stone and metal fins. The same material from Phase I is also proposed for parts of Phase II’s facade to strengthen the visual connections.

The north side of the podium is designed with softer edges to nurture a welcoming atmosphere for users of the apartments, cinema and shopping centre. Using ocean as the motif of the retail mall, the horizontal streamlined facade elements on the retail podium are reminiscent of seawater flow. A sunken atrium, embraced by the podium through arched setback, contains the largest indoor 360 degree individual aquarium in Asia, with which an immersive and experiential shopping experience is created.
