DJI, the world’s leading consumer drone marker, opens its new global headquarters in Nanshan District, Shenzhen’ s technology and innovation hub. The landmark development, designed as a ‘floating community in the sky’, exemplifies the headquarters of the future and sets a benchmark for future R&D buildings in terms of efficiency and sustainability.

Covering a land area of 17,606m² with a total GFA of 242,000m², the development comprises two towers of 213m and 195m tall connected by a floating bridge. Each tower boasts six blocks suspended from the central core, resembling ‘wings’ in the air and echoing DJI’s business.
