Since the start of April, initial public offerings by China’s tech groups on exchanges worldwide have raised just $6bn, down almost two-thirds from the first quarter, according to data from Dealogic.

 

The share of tech listings as a proportion of all Chinese IPOs also fell to the lowest level in two years, at just 21 per cent of the more than $28bn raised during the period.

 

The decline comes as Chinese tech groups have faced pressure from Beijing, which in recent months has stepped up regulatory scrutiny of some of the biggest names in the sector.

71 Wentworth

The adaptive reuse of a 19th-century building fronting Charleston’s King Street is paving the way for a mixed-use property that lasts 150 years more.

Built circa-1871 by architect John Henry Devereux for the city’s freemasons, the Tudor Gothic Revival edifice sat sentinel at 71 Wentworth Street for decades, until developers East West Partners got designs to transform it with the aid of architect Kevan Hoertdoerfer, designer Cortney Bishop and the blessing of the Preservation Society of Charleston. Double- to triple-height cathedral ceilings and gothic arched windows soar as high as 18 feet, within 12 superlative private residences that span the upper two floors.

Designed to spec by Bishop in five distinct floor plans, they’ll feature original materials (exposed antique brick, original heart pine beams), elegant loggias, high-end appliances, luxury finishes (hand-troweled plaster, certified sustainable French oak floors, Evirio marble, Zellige tile), local cabinetry by Brooks Custom Woodworks and sculptural furnishings, plus modern technologies that bring the building forward. Units will be move-in ready early next year.

POST MASTERS: @aardvarkletterpress

WHO: The family-run Los Angeles-based business has been the go-to resource for custom letterpress printing since 1968, attracting well-known clients like Oprah Winfrey and costume designer Arianne Phillips.

WHAT: They create everything from invitations and note cards to artists’ prints, frequently collaborating with Shepard Fairey and, most recently, Gajin Fujita.

WHY: With philanthropist Nicolas Berggruen as the new owner of their 1924 Stiles O. Clements-designed building and Commune—
a longtime Aardvark client—on board as the design team, expect exciting new arts programming aimed at regenerating MacArthur Park, the city’s original arts district.

IN HIS WORDS: “With the digital revolution, people strayed from time-tested arts like letterpress, but more and more people are looking for ‘old school.’ What we do can’t be done fast or easily. It takes time, care and human involvement, what photographer Catherine Opie calls ‘the hand.’ ” –Cary Ocon, general manager
