Completed in 2005, the TianXing Roosevelt Center has become an anchor and focal point for the city of Dalian, China. This 3,000,000 SF retail/entertainment/ tourism complex occupies three city blocks. The towers contain 750 housing units and a 350-room 4-star hotel. But the most prominent component of this new development is the huge atrium - 750 feet long, 80 feet wide and 75 feet high. Inside the atrium is a lushly landscaped park featuring a children's playground and a high-tech media wall, complete with a flowing stream and waterfalls, all basking in the natural light admitted by a translucent canopy.
