Xin Hua Pudong riverfront, Shanghai
Inbo and its Chinese partner NITA were selected by Huangpu River Banks Development to design the master plan for the large scale Xin Hua Pudong waterfront development in the very heart of Shanghai.
The low-carbon city development entails a 45 ha area and about 750.000 sqm of mixed urban program. Inbo and NITA made an inclusive master plan development strategy for the Xin Hua plot only two kilometers east of the famous Shanghai broadcast tower. Inbo-NITA designed a highly sustainable green riverside park with natural fingers that penetrate and interact with the surrounding urban landscape. Together with a marina the park generates unique conditions for exclusive residential and office buildings, shopping malls and leisure. By instilling some of the existing buildings of this former harbor and industrial area with cultural functions, the development reflects the emerging re-appreciation and re-use of cultural heritage throughout China. The marina will serve as a catalyst for leisurely use of the river board. People can have a stroll along the river or enjoy the area from their own yacht.
