Riverside City is a new mixed-use development situated on the banks of the Songhua River in Harbin, and due to open its doors to the public in 2018.

Our team was involved in an extensive analysis of the carpark spatial allowance and planning, upon which it was decided that pockets of space could be operated as commercial and experiential zones, in order to enhance the customer experience, and to capitalise on the naturally heavy footfall through the carpark.

An express-servicing facility was integrated to allow the snow and ice which builds up around the wheel arches of Harbin’s cars for six months of the year to be removed, the de-icer to be refilled, windscreens to be cleaned, and the tyre pressure to be checked. Further zones, included a premium car valeting service, along with the integration of a micro sports car showroom, where customers can book a test drive through a custom designed smartphone app.
