ATLANTA—Currently under construction in Shenzhen, China, the Bao'an OCT Hotel at Haiyi Plaza recently reached an important milestone as it was topped out, according to John Portman & Associates, based here. The project consists of one 26-story hotel tower, one 29-story residential tower, a four-story podium and a three-level basement in the Bao'an business district, bounded on the east by a central green belt, on the south by the sea. Taking its form from the water, the water's edge, and the fluidity of the sea, the OCT hotel and residential project is composed of soft, sinuous curvilinear forms wrapping the edges of the site and enclosing a private garden in the middle of the block.
