The Hangzhou Qiantang Bay Future Headquarters Base is located in the core block of Qianjiang Century City in Hangzhou, adjacent to Asian Games Village of the 19th Asian Games in 2022 in the north and Hangzhou International Expo Center (main venue of G20 summit 2016) in the south. In the future, the base will gather leading enterprises at home and abroad, headquarters of international organizations and headquarters of “unicorn” enterprises in future industries. Through the comprehensive construction of underground depth, above ground height, industry density and development intensity, the base will create an innovative place for the global headquarters and a vibrant future city in the bay area.
