We began in 2003 as ENCLAVE Planning, Landscape and Architecture, a practice focused on sustainability and smart growth. ANKEN’s first development project was built in 2006 – a unique co-working space for startups and small/medium enterprises. In Shanghai, it was the first of its kind and viewed as a new viable platform for collaboration amongst foreign enterprises and the local government. In 2008, ANKEN Green was developed – a six story project built for the growing demand from creative industry companies.
Over the last 10 years, ANKEN has grown significantly becoming a multi-faceted business in the areas of development, property management and investment.
