The Ring in Chongqing is a ground-breaking ecological retail destination featuring one of China’s largest indoor botanic gardens. The development marks the inauguration of Hongkong Land’s new lifestyle retail series by the same name.

Setting new benchmarks for experiential destinations in China, The Ring’s vision is truly innovative. The design seeks to deliver a new-generation social destination, an urban natural community, and a landmark regional commercial centre.

The brief called for a scheme to innovatively combine urban living and the beauty of nature in one space. The key objective was to align with the developer’s four core values for the destination – “Organic, Respectful, Inspiring and Magnetic,” – as well as representing the brand philosophy for The Ring that is “Living Mall, Living More”.

To meet these objectives, the 42-metre-tall botanic garden, interactive sports and culture facilities, family and child-friendly activities, and a vibrant dining and shopping scene all under one roof provide first-of-their-kind attractions to bring a new lifestyle to offer to the city and Chongqing’s community.
