Architectural firm HASSELL's business district masterplan for Qianhai Mawan Mile in Shenzhen, China is impressive and it stretches for 1.6 kilometers. The development combines "lush parklands, new cultural buildings and a meandering [mile-long] sky deck." By incorporating all these features within its proposal, the architectural practice seeks to connect the community and build a tranquil environment for city dwellers and travelers.

The award-winning business district masterplan aims to cater to a younger crowd. While the sky deck is dubbed a "boulevard in the sky" and will make for mindful walks, the elevated architectural structure will also serve as a connection between the nearby buildings. In addition, the path will feature an uninterrupted cycling and jogging lane that will surely motivate residents to be active, even if it is in a hectic urban environment.
