King’s Cross Station is a historic train station, first built in 1852, that has been renovated, expanded, and modernized, and now serves as a new focal point for the city of London. In addition to the train station, the 4.5-hectare project includes office and retail space, as well as a soaring new interior public concourse and a new public square at the front of the station. King’s Cross Station is located at the heart of a major redevelopment district in London, aptly named King’s Cross.
Sino‐Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu is a retail-driven mixed-use project that weaves old and new, global and local, low-rise and high-rise, and religious and commercial uses into a pedestrian-centered urban fabric within a growing central Chinese city. The 18.25-acre site includes more than 300 retailers within 1.14 million square feet of retail space, a 335,000-square-foot boutique hotel with 100 rooms and 42 serviced apartments, and a 1.3 million-square-foot, 47-story office tower—all wrapped around an ancient Buddhist temple, six adaptively reused heritage buildings, and three on-site plazas. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Neighborhood Development Gold-rated community brought over 110 new retailers to the market.
Wynwood Walls is a collection of six privately owned warehouses that flank previously abandoned land used for junk storage and garbage in the urban core of Miami. In creating Wynwood Walls, the building facades were transformed into canvases and the open land area was converted to a gallery floor. The result is an outdoor “museum of the streets” by developer and placemaker Tony Goldman of Goldman Properties. It is one of the largest concentrated public displays of world-class street art, including more than 30 major works of art on giant wall canvases produced by internationally acclaimed artists from more than 15 countries. The Walls surround and encompass 1.65 acres of land that now provide multiple areas for the public to enjoy, free of charge. The Wynwood Walls is the primary catalyst behind the transformation of Wynwood into one of the hottest new creative and culturally significant neighborhoods in the United States.
The Walls now stand as the heart of the neighborhood and the destination for locals and tourists alike. After only a few years of development, Wynwood has transformed into one of the most walkable, creative, and exciting experiences in the Miami area. Wynwood has been rated one of the coolest neighborhoods with an exceptional street scene by many well-regarded sources such as Vogue, Forbes, and Cushman & Wakefield.
