DLR Group Expands Shanghai Presence
(SHANGHAI, February 5, 2019) – We celebrated the grand opening of a new, larger Shanghai office on January 18. CEO Griff Davenport, FAIA; Senior Principal Jim French, FAIA; Senior Principal Steven McKay, RIBA, LEED AP; and Senior Principal Paul Westlake, FAIA, IIDA, joined China General Manager Lihong Qiu to open the new office location.
We established a Shanghai office in 2013. The larger 6,000-SF space at 1168 West Nanjing Road in the Jingan District accommodates the office’s 18 design professionals, and enhances the firm’s ability to serve clients in China, as well as the interests of domestic clients with operations in Asia.
“We are committed to being a significant design voice in the Shanghai design community and across Asia,” Davenport said. “We are growing in Shanghai and attracting local talent with expertise and experience in our core markets. This beautiful new space will enable our Asia leadership to scale operations that deliver more sophisticated design for clients.”

Our first school design recently opened in Shanghai. The Huili School is a unique campus in the Qiantan International Business District. The 85,000-SF school houses 1,080 students in grades 1 through 9. A second phase is under construction which will add a 61,000-SF school for 300 students in grades 10 through 12.
Construction also is underway on the Baoshan Long Beach Winder Tower and Concert Hall. Scheduled for completion in spring 2020, this 1.2 million-SF mixed-use tower will redevelop 6.9 acres of waterfront in Shanghai’s Baoshan district.
