Shangri-La Centre, Wuhan Celebrates Its Soft Opening

A new Grade A office tower to revitalise the city by providing all-encompassing commercial services

Shangri-La Centre, Wuhan, the second phase of the Shangri-La Group’s Wuhan Development project celebrates its soft opening today as the city continues its business recovery following the COVID-19 Pandemic. Located in Hankou Financial Street, the Shangri-La Centre is connected with the existing five-star hotel Shangri-La Hotel, Wuhan, serviced apartments, and meeting facilities. The site is also equipped with spa and fitness facilities, as well as a flexible outdoor event space and will serve as a commercial complex for discerning travellers and corporates as part of a revitalisation of the city’s financial centre.

Adjoining the Shangri-La Hotel, Wuhan, and close to Baodao Park and City Library, Shangri-La Centre, Wuhan is situated at Jianshe Avenue next to the city’s three main subway lines, and adjacent to the commercial districts and headquarters of financial institutions and banks. The gross floor area of the tower is approximately 42,000 square metres with 23 floors, each providing efficiently designed office spaces with square layouts and flexible partitions. A series of smart technologies offering convenience and security for tenants have also been adopted as standard across the site, including facial recognition technology and smart elevator systems. Its human-centric design is also reflected in the air-conditioning system, which gives each office unit full control of the indoor temperature. Additionally, Shangri-La Centre, Wuhan provides professional and caring services including nursery rooms and executive washrooms, upholding Shangri-La’s heartfelt service culture.

The sky bridge on the third and fourth floor of the office tower connects the building with the Shangri-La Hotel, Wuhan. It also provides a range of facilities, including a 1,000 square-metre, fully equipped gym, a 25-metre indoor heated swimming pool and children’s pool, a luxurious spa, a relaxing yoga studio, and an outdoor garden which can be used to host a variety of private events. These facilities together create a unique and flexible environment for business executives to make the most of their time, enjoying leisure, fitness, and social activities from a single, unique destination.

As the first international five-star hotel in the city, the Shangri-La Group has brought its distinctive Asian hospitality standards to Wuhan over the past 20 years and continues to make plans to grow with the city. The hotel team were on the front lines of the pandemic earlier this year, and supported the community in a multitude of ways - from preparing meals for staff at local hospitals, to welcoming medical crew from other provinces who dedicated their time to helping fight the virus. Wuhan is now well on the road to recovery and the Shangri-La Centre is positioned to help stimulate growth and inspire confidence in the city by providing all-encompassing commercial services.

The Shangri-La Centre, Wuhan is the Group’s latest high-end, commercial development after successful projects in Chengdu, Jinan, and Qingdao. With the integration of hotel and office, Shangri-La is set to bring new opportunities, services, and facilities to the Wuhan financial centre, developing the site into a one-stop destination for tourism, business, and leisure. The new hybrid site is intended to support local consumers, corporate clients, and international travellers with the very best business and leisure infrastructure.
