The project in the Far East will transform four million square feet of retail development into a global address.

In addition to creating a distinctive brand for the development, Klingmann is working with Gensler to design a unique 21st century shopping center shopping center, a concentration of retail, service, and entertainment enterprises designed to serve the surrounding region. The modern shopping center differs from its antecedents—bazaars and marketplaces—in that the shops are usually amalgamated into  experience that captures a wide spectrum of market segments.

"For example, you go to the Apple Store to experience the brand, not necessarily shop for a new computer. But the experience and the aesthetic are what tie you to the product. The same applies to Nike Town and, certainly, Starbucks.

"Our objective with this project is to create an experience of four million square feet of retail space that will attract people not only across the street or 50 miles away, but from around the world."

Once completed, the brand will expand into a comprehensive lifestyle experience for residents through an innovative mix of amenities, green architecture and materials incorporating global trends.
