Leatop Plaza in Zhujiang New Town Completed and Inaugurated
A touch of humanistic care injected into the CBD by "Big Ideal", generating an upsurge of "Enjoyable working environment" in South China
GUANGZHOU, China, July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- On July 3rd, 2012, Leatop Plaza, a 303-meter-high skyscraper at the north gateway to the CBD in Tianhe District is completed and officially opening. Against the garish light emanating from the exterior-wall landscape lamps and the core tubes of the interior structure, the ice-crystal-shaped Leatop Plaza, at once simple and upstanding, becomes the focus of attention in Zhujiang New Town. Meanwhile, the supplementary facilities of the building are officially open to the public, most notably its urban sculpture, the lobby and the high sky club. The opening of Leatop Plaza bears great significance in that the notion of "Big Ideal" as embodied by Leatop Plaza will usher in a new era of "Enjoyable working environment" in super-A-grade office buildings in Zhujiang New Town and even in the entire South China.
Tianhe District is presented with a new opportunity for its fast development, as "building Guangzhou into a national central city by deepening Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation" has been designated as a national strategy. By following the path of new urbanization, Tianhe District seeks to realize the ultimate goal of comprehensively improving the quality of urban development and marketing the CBD in an all-dimensional manner. Under this grand vision, the residents of Tianhe District will live a happier life and have a stronger sense of pride and belonging. A government official of Tianhe District indicated in the opening ceremony, "With a unique notion of development and operation, Leatop Plaza offers enjoyable office environment that enables corporations to upgrade their core competitiveness. Not only that, Leatop Plaza also gives us food for thought concerning the importance of humanistic care during the urban development process of Zhujiang New Town."
Since the CBD of Zhujiang New Town picked up a skyrocketing pace of development, a number of issues have surfaced to the public attention, including its confusing transportation network, high catering prices and difficulty for white-collar workers in finding places to dine. All of these issues are primary elements that corporations take into consideration when selecting their office properties. In this sense, Leatop Plaza has made full preparations in response to these problems. In light of its "Big Ideal" that "Leatop Plaza believes, the world will be a better place if the office building provides an enjoyable working environment for people in it!", Leatop Plaza ensures that every facility, both hard and soft, can make users at home and impressed by the humanistic care.
Standing at the north gateway to Zhujiang New Town, Leatop Plaza is situated in close proximity to Mall of the World and the Metro Station of Huangpu Dadao, which is part of the APM (Automated People Mover) system of Zhujiang New Town. In addition to its advantageous geographical location, Leatop Plaza is equipped with an intelligent Parking Bay system, 838 parking spaces and a fully intelligent parking guidance system, coupled with free shuttle bus services and bicycle parking spaces aimed at encouraging a low-carbon way of transportation. Under such meticulous consideration, the needs of users of different means of transport can be fully met. Moreover, to solve the dining problem that bothers the white-collar workers in the CBD, Leatop Plaza has attracted Compass Group from the UK, a globally top-notch catering company to provide high-quality food and comprehensive supporting service. The staff canteen in the B1 floor provides users with catering and other supporting services that are all-weather, high-quality, diverse, nutritiously balanced and reasonably priced.
After winning the LEED® (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) for Core & Shell™ Gold Pre-Certification of the United States in 2011, Leatop Plaza has been seeking to add a touch of humanistic care by incorporating a variety of poetic green elements into its landscape design. A case in point is an urban sculpture named "Joyous Reunion", which consists of eight "bamboo chairs" placed in artistic randomness. It serves as a reminder of a pleasant scene in which neighbors gather for a leisure talk. The ground-floor lobby, 37.8 meters high, is designed is a way that creates an illusion of "the sky being packed into the building". Moreover, water flows gently into the lobby from the outer Chinese-style garden, bringing the exterior and interior landscapes into a perfect alignment. More interestingly, Leatop Plaza also extends the greener up into the air. Strolling at the 62th floor, you will be amazed at the high sky club, which is at the same altitude as the 37.8-meter-high lobby. While taking a panoramic view of the entire city at the high sky club, you can also walk through a natural plant zone that presents three different features. In an instant, you have a sense of traversing through four different seasons and feel immersed into Mother Nature.
Since October of 2011 when the global promotion was launched, Leatop Plaza has drawn great attention from the market, rising into favor with such Global 500 companies as Johnson Controls, KONE and Acer. As things stand today, the overall occupancy rate has reached 70%. As Mr. Lei Junwu, Deputy General Manager of Guangdong Leatop Real Estate Investment Co., Ltd said in the ceremony, "The average monthly rent of Leatop Plaza is kept at RMB 200 Yuan per square meter. We hope to attract more top-notch companies with such a competitive price. In the future, Leatop Plaza will work closely with more excellent partners and companies that share our 'Big Ideal' to build exemplary office buildings that embrace the notion of 'enjoyable working environment'".
