Bio-Pharmaceutical Enterprise Accelerator, Shenzhen

Bio-Pharmaceutical Enterprise Accelerator, Shenzhen

The urban design for the development of the biotechnology and innovation center envisages a gross floor space of more than 670,000 square meters on a site measuring some 11 hectares on the eastern edge of Shenzhen. In addition to hotels, apartments and retail, premises for new and developing start-ups for biomedicine and medical equipment are at the center of the biopharmaceutical
enterprise Acceloerators. Situated directly adjacent to a park with a lake, the quarter is evolving from a lower-rise, organic development into a prestigious, urban perimeter-block development. Three high-rises with heights of 100, 154 and 200 meters accentuate the corner points in the urban fabric in a striking manner. A skywalk will provide all-round access to the quarter for pedestrians, who can make their way from the lake to the urban cluster via expansive ramps and public plazas. The complex is designed such that pedestrians can reach every building without having to cross a single road. The planners have particularly taken the rainy, subtropical climate into account, with covered walkways and a comprehensive landscaping concept that envisages greened areas even up to the roofs of the high-rises.
