Across 148 floors and a GFA of 138,056 sq m, the tower offers views towards the northern lotus park and the city skyline to the south. Retail and hotel entrances are along the north frontage with links to the main road and metro stations, while a block of office parks are located at the southern end of the site.
Within the building the 245-key Waldorf Astoria Xiamen Hotel has 245 rooms, while the office spaces occupy the lower levels. Featuring a façade of glass and limestone, the tower contrasts a solid podium with a delicate glass curtain wall alongside the serenity of the adjacent Lotus Garden.
A double height atrium creates a grandiosity for guests, with bronze metal decoration adopted through the exterior and interior design. This opulence extends through to the podium rooftop with an outdoor pool deck and views of the tropical landscape filtered through the boutique bar’s folding wood doors.
On the third floor are the hotel’s banquet facilities and linear retail mall creating a lifestyle destination for residents of the building. The area is punctuated by open terraces and glass boxes that add a buoyant atmosphere to the otherwise flat volume.
We hope to establish an integrated mixed-use development that would rejuvenate and contribute to the prosperity of Xiamen; Paragon Lianhua Lane Complex, accompanied by Waldorf Astoria Xiamen Hotel, is slated to be an iconic hub that achieves work-life balance, providing bracing experiences to the public.Dimi Lee, Executive Director, Aedas
Through the use of delineated routes for the various users of the structure, banqueters and VIPs gain access to shorter routes to the venue and lobby while retail pedestrians have a windier route by comparison. This encourages these visitors to peruse the storefronts before accessing the pedestrian footpath.
