Atkins has been awarded a contract to design the centrepiece development for a new expansion project in China.

Changsha Northstar Real Estate Development Company will be developing the Northstar Delta site to create a new landmark - Northstar Changsha Centre - on behalf of the government for the city of Changsha,

It has appointed Atkins to provide architecture design services for this development.

The Centre will integrate residential, cultural, retail and commercial space of the riverside area to create a central public space for activities. This will include a supertall 400 metre landmark office tower, regional convention centre, department stores, a five-star hotel and serviced apartments. The project will cover a floor area of 406,000m2.

Ian Milne, Atkins’ senior design director, said: “Our design ambition is to create a spectacular centrepiece to this important new urban quarter. Connectivity is a major concept in our design and we want to connect not only places, but people. The civic plaza will be located between the proposed iconic landmark tower and convention centre and will be an ideal meeting point due to its convenient location, plus the wide range of cultural and recreational activities that can be staged there.”
