Located in the Futian CBD area of Shenzhen sitting on the central axis of the district, The Link CentralWalk is surrounded by a network of financial institutions, civic and retail centres and convenient transportation. 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 provides a sensory journey where visitors could immerse themselves in a “slow space”. 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, interactive projection system, snow blower 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.

CentralWalk is a green-inspired hub that set the new benchmark for retail architecture and urban living. After finishing renovation, CentralWalk becomes the first asset achieving three green building qualifications in China – SITES Platinum Precertification, CS Platinum Certification of LEED V4 BD+C and the WELL Health-Safety Rating. It makes an ideal locale for social events and relaxation. Sunken plazas are redesigned with increased accessibility, public seating & communal spaces perfect for alfresco dining, seasonal events, interactive art installations, leisure activities etc.
