The Jiefangbei Towers are located in the city of Chongqing, the largest megalopolis of Southwest China. The city’s urban core is located at the convergence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. It is here in Jiefangbei, a vital central business and commercial area where on the highest elevation the pair of high rise towers will reside.
The Kangde Center boasts a maximum density totaling 131,000 sq meters. The 46 and 54 story towers rise to 286-Meters high and are connected at the base with a 7 story building that serves as a plinth. Hotels, residential units and office space occupy the tower buildings with commercial and retail at the lower levels. 18 floors of subterranean parking are provided.
The lower levels of the building respond to various local conditions and are very much integrated into the urban fabric of the vital city center. The towers, seen from afar, have a dynamic, iconic presence within Chongqing’s city skyline.
