|Cross Tower, Shanghai, China|
Cross Tower is an art deco inspired commercial office tower located off the Bund in the Huangpu district of Shanghai, China.
Originally constructed in 1998, it has in recent years, gained competition from Grade offices in the neighborhood. Lead8 was commissioned to redesign and reposition the building's architecture and interior, whilst also undertaking a complete spatial and circulation re-working of the podium zone. Embracing its prime location, Cross Tower is transformed into a stylish, contemporary boutique office with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
The new character of Cross Tower provides the area with a vibrant new commercial destination to attract new businesses and bring economic vitality to the community.
