Swire Properties and Tsinghua University Publish First "Places Impact Report" on Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing

Swire Properties and Tsinghua University's Lab for Architectural Programming and Post-occupancy Evaluation have jointly published a Places Impact Report, "The Creative Transformation of Taikoo Li Sanlitun". This is the first systematic study and evaluation of Taikoo Li Sanlitun's impact on the neighbourhood and surrounding area since its inception 12 years ago. The report applies Swire Properties’ Places Impact Framework" and explores the four dimensions of place – Vibrancy, Livelihood, Wellbeing and Resilience – to assess the project’s performance. 

“Taikoo Li has a pedestrian network pattern that’s like a chessboard. The visitors can come and go in multiple directions instead of having to stick to a few main pathways like in the traditional shopping mall layout,” said Chris Law, Founding Director of The Oval Partnership. 

At The Oval Partnership, we respect that people, place and community are separate parts of a whole. Only by engaging them in the process can we create great places that leave an enduring impact on the neighborhood’s liveability and sustainability, as manifested in the Sanlitun Taikoo Li project.
