Innovative design with sustainable solutions is widely recognised by industry authorities
Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza is a diversified complex that encompasses a Grand A office and one-stop retail experience in the prime location of Baiyun New Town. Launched in November 2021, this city landmark was designed by the world-renowned architect Ms. Zaha Hadid and her team from Zaha Hadid Architects. The development took around five years with a total investment of RMB 4.5 billion. The building exhibits a sinuous facade design to articulate its agility; the overhead bridges interconnect the two main buildings and are laid out in the shape of an infinity symbol "∞" to reflect the Group's spirit of "Constant Entrepreneurship". Several industrial breakthroughs were achieved while realising this innovative design to perfection, including the implement of three-dimensional curved facade, and the hoisting of long truss bridges. As a three-star "China Green Building Design Label" building, the plaza has adopted a series of green building technologies to demonstrate H Properties' ultimate pursuit of sustainable development, including the use of perforated aluminium shading panels which enables the building to "breathe through its smart skin", ETFE membrane lighting roof to dissipate heat by evaporative cooling, a smart management system, as well as greenery coverage designs, achieving energy efficiency of 52%, complemented with up to 35% in greenery coverage. The judges for the Luban Prize highly endorsed Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza with its cutting-edge design, profound special structure and its technological innovation with sustainable solutions. An expert said Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza was beyond their expectations during on-site inspection.
People-oriented smart property management brings in international corporations and global brands
H Properties adheres to the corporate culture of "Si Li Ji Ren" (Considering the collective benefit before self-interest) in managing Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza, providing tenants and customers with a world-class property operation and management services.
