(SHANGHAI) – Hines, the global real estate firm, today announced that One Museum Place in Shanghai is a winner of the 2022 ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence.
The ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence recognizes excellence in land use practice and the full development process of a project beyond its architecture or design. It not only evaluates projects for their high standard of excellence across a range of disciplines – architecture, design, planning, construction, resiliency, economics, management, and more – but also their positive impact on their community and environment.
As the first in mainland China to receive both LEED and WELL Platinum ratings as well as RESET Air Certification for Core & Shell, One Museum Place is one of the greenest super high-rise buildings in the country. Located in the heart of downtown Shanghai, the transit-oriented property was designed and built to the highest specifications of quality, operations, and sustainability and was commended for its focus on providing a world-class work environment for tenants and a lifestyle-oriented amenity for the community. In addition, One Museum Place offers its tenants international-level property management and customer services, with a focus on providing five-star service and hospitality.
“People are in the center of all that we do at Hines, which is always a good starting point for all our projects,” says Tina He, managing director of Shanghai, Hines. “One Museum Place was built to provide an efficient and convivial space for our tenants and the public with the project’s expansive gardens, terraces, and interior public spaces. We also regularly invest in special volunteer activities and charity events to engage and inspire the community, which makes our first ULI Award for Excellence in the region even more meaningful.”
“Sustainability is always a top priority in all that we do at Hines. One Museum Place prioritized sustainability right at the beginning with the design and it remains key in our operations – through its energy-efficient systems, indoor air quality technologies, water recapture systems, green roof, and more,” says James Morrison, Head of ESG at Hines Asia Pacific. “We manage the carbon footprint of buildings we develop and will strive to ensure that we provide green, livable spaces to our tenants and communities.”
The ULI Asia Pacific Award for Excellence adds to One Museum Place’s illustrious list of accolades, which include the Sustainability Achievement of the Year by RICS China Awards 2021 Excellence as well as Best Green Development from MIPIM Asia Pacific Awards 2019.
