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.
Beaugrenelle is a repositioned multilevel retail center with 49,517 square meters of gross leasable area (GLA) in the heart of Paris. The project involved the redevelopment and repositioning of an existing shopping center, first built in 1979 as part of a larger mixed-use district. Located several blocks from the Eiffel Tower, in the Front de Seine district, the original center was erected on a podium that placed much of the retail above the street level. The new center is a fusion of internal mall and streetfront retail space, and uses a striking new modern design to reconnect the center with the street and the neighborhood.

Situated near the southern coast of Kowloon, Elements at Kowloon was developed around two Mass Transit Railway (MTR) stations, providing vital links to Hong Kong and Lantau islands.
