Link CentralWalk shines at ICSC Global Design & Development Awards 2023

Join us in celebrating the outstanding achievement of Aedas-designed Link CentralWalk, as it has received the prestigious Gold Award and Sustainable Commendation under the Renovations/Expansions – Projects Over 500,000 sq. ft of Total Retail Space category at the ICSC Global Design & Development Awards 2023!

Futian is on the cusp of a new and exciting era after decades of rapid development, and as a prominent destination in the area, The Link CentralWalk was renovated to meet the new standard. Positioned as an ‘urban paradise on the central axis of Futian’, the project is design by Aedas Executive Director Ed Lam and it provides a sensory and immersive journey to visitors. The cyclical nature of the four seasons inspired the zoning of CentralWalk, in which visitors are afforded to stroll effortlessly along the retail wings or to access the surrounding urban space from either direction. Based on sectors’ spatial qualities, four seasons themed areas are created, with corresponding color and greenery application.

Besides still visual scenes, specific aroma, background music are applied to heighten visitors’ senses, submerging them into an environment full of nature and wonder. The enhancement plan is chiefly about strengthening indoor-outdoor relationship, improving connectivity and circulation, and increasing commercial value through strategical planning, interior and façade makeover as well as landscape upgrade.

The renovation forms a communal space combined with leisure and retail functionality. The blurring between indoor and outdoor creates an oasis in the busy city. Link CentralWalk now is ideal for social events and relaxation. The piazzas are redesigned with increased accessibility, public seating and communal spaces perfect for alfresco dining, seasonal events, interactive art installations, leisure activities and more.

The ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centers) Global Design & Development Awards are designed to honor and recognise the premier design and development trends of retail projects and tenant design internationally. The awards are reviewed by councils across North America under high standard of aesthetics and functionality.
