Timeless City – Riverside Paradise Walk has opened in Chengdu, China. The mixed-use development was designed by Lead8, spanning over 740,000 sqm – it houses a 140,000 sqm retail mall and four towers which host both a hotel and also residential space.

“This development has been quite a remarkable process – taking only 28 months to go from land purchase to completion,” – Simon Chua, Co-Founder & executive director at Lead8.

According to Lead8, the development’s design concept was inspired by the Sand River. The design extends “the curvilinear appearance of the podium to the towers”. Timeless City features transparent glass panels resembling a crystal dome.
