The project’s retail areas mimic the transition from forest to sea, as it gradually changes its structure and appearance towards the waterfront. This part of the development comprises buildings with ocean-inspired facades, while those located on the north side of the site reference the forest through the use of wood.

Vanke One City creates a mix of functions and spatial experiences and is programmed to “give people a variety of things to do.” It comprises fountains, an arena, an interactive play area for kids, and a centrally positioned recreational park programmed with active spots meant to engage pedestrians on their way to a retail, office or residential area of the complex.
