Situated at a prime location of Donggang Business District, the ORIX China Headquarters Building Project is adjacent to the Dalian International Convention Center where the Summer Davos will be held. The project has a total area of 25,000 m2, and a gross floor area of 246,000 m2. It’s composed of two main buildings of 41 floors in Zone A and Zone B, with a design height of 202.8m. Zone B is developed by DONGJU UNITED (DALIAN) PROPERTY CO.,LTD.
The project is planned to be completed and put into use in late May 2022. The architectural design fully draws on the Grand Front emerging urban complex model successfully constructed and operated by ORIX Group in Osaka, Japan. The project is intended to offer commercial activities themed by office operation, community, brand, entertainment and health. The Zone B relies on the interactive and synergistic effects stimulated by operation of the headquarters building, focuses on financial services, industrial operation and industrial investment, and provides professional engineering, safety, quality and brand protection for the tenant enterprises and institutions. It is to build an emerging urban complex serving as an International Financial Center, Sino-Japanese Economic and Cultural Exchange Center, Innovative Industrial Cluster Center and Citizens Fine Experience Zone with strong regional influence in Northeast Asia.
In the future, the project will rely on the advantages of policy, industrial foundation, shipping port, opening-up, urban environment and human resources brought by Dalian Northeast Asian Economic Circle Center to further optimize the financial industry structure of Dalian, improve regional supporting facilities and urban functions, and enhance the investment environment. More foreign-funded enterprises and domestically famous enterprises will be introduced to make the project an important engine leading the overall economic development of Dalian and Northeast China at large, and facilitate Dalian’s transformation into a modern international metropolis in Northeast Asia.
