Located at the heart of the Hongqiao CBD, The Hub is the only commercial complex that is directly connected to the Hongqiao Transportation Hub, offering convenient access to major transportation nodes such as the Shanghai High-Speed Rail Terminal, the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, five underground Metro lines, long-haul bus station and the future maglev terminal. As described in Shanghai’s 13th Five-Year Plan (2016 – 2020), Hongqiao CBD was designed to become a world-class business centre providing services for business, exhibition and conventions as well as transportation for the Yangtze River Delta region and beyond.
Construction of The Hub commenced in 2011 and was completed in the second half of 2015. Today, The Hub features four office towers, a Xintiandi commercial zone, a shopping facility and a performance and exhibition centre. While The Hub is designed as an “urban transportation hub” project, it remains in adherence to our philosophy of integrating “live-work-play-learn” experiences, and offers business, leisure and entertainment facilities for office workers in the Hongqiao business district, the residents of western Shanghai, and the vast population living within reach via the transportation network accessible through The Hub. With the integration of these experiences, The Hub has grown over the years to become a popular location, attracting regional headquarters and branch offices of leading companies in various industries, including Fortune 500 companies such as Roche Diagnostics (Greater China headquarters) and Shell (downstream business headquarters).
With Hongqiao CBD positioned as the gateway to the Yangtze River Delta region, we believe that The Hub will continue to function as a strategic location that offers companies convenient access to regional offices and business opportunities in the Yangtze River Delta, while enjoying irreplaceable market positioning through a seamless blend of shopping, entertainment and dining with the performing arts, as well as kid- and family-friendly experiences.
