Shanghai Huangpu River East Bank Xinhua Waterfront Park kicks off

After participating in the international solicitation of the Shanghai Pudong East Coast Conceptual Masterplan in mid 2016, West 8 in cooperation with Tongji University was commissioned by the Shanghai Municipal Government and Shanghai Shenjiang Liang’an Development Construction Investment Group to design the 1.6km Xinhua Waterfront Park at the east coast of Huangpu River, Shanghai. Shanghai Municipal Government’s aspiration “to create a waterfront with vitality; to promote public health and to enrich citizen’s welfare” are key considerations for the design. West 8’s design is a world-class waterfront park that harmonizes vegetation, atmosphere, culture and art against the metropolitan backdrop of Shanghai City.

Xinhua Waterfront Park is a subproject of Huangpu Waterfront Revitalization Masterplan begun by the Shanghai Municipal Government. It is also a key development of the Shanghai Shenjiang Liang’an Development Construction Investment Group. Under one of the five riverside themes of the masterplan, Xinhua Waterfront Park is situated in the cultural corridor section with the total area of ​​17 ha. It is east of historic Minsheng Port at the Huangpu River and west of the waterfront shipyard, connecting important city streets like Minsheng Road, Taolin Road, Yuanshen Road and Fushan Road. It is one of the key projects of Pujiang Cultural Highlands, anticipated to maximize the cultural and leisure experience for users.

West 8’s design for Xinhua Waterfront Park will turn the east coast of Huangpu River to a integrated waterfront corridor with new city squares and waterfront public green space, complete with cycling tracks connecting to the city center. This project has been announced by the Shanghai Municipal Government as one of the key projects of the Waterfront Green Space Infrastructure Framework, and was included in the recent ‘13th Five-Year Plan’ issued by the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission as a pioneer project.

West 8’s approach is ‘simple yet beautiful, relaxed and romantic’ and introduces four new major city squares: Minsheng Cultural Square in the ferry terminal area; Harbour Square at the entrance of a yacht harbor with historic industrial architecture; Baizi Square (Hundred-Sons Square) with a alcove-form seating element intergrated with a retaining wall; and the Xinhua Square which connects Pudong’s most important business area Dongfang Road, functioning as a key node.

The design has entered final stage. Construction will officially break ground at the end of March 2017. The project is a significant contribution to a new Shanghai waterfront of the Huangpu River with healthy and sustainable environment for all citizens. 

West 8 黃浦江東岸新華濱江段景觀和城市設計項目順利展開

經過參與2016年中上海浦東東岸貫通藍圖框架的全球國際徵集遴選後,West 8與同济大学建筑设计研究院(集团)有限公司合作,成功被上海市政府及申江兩岸開發建設投資(集團)有限公司委託為新華濱江公園的首席設計。

新華濱江公園屬於浦東新區政府為打通黃浦江東岸濱江岸線工程的一部分,同時也是其開發主體申江集團的重點推進項目,隸屬浦東五大濱江主題區段之一的文化長廊段, 岸線全長約1.6公里,總佔地面積17萬平方米,東接民生文化城,西連船廠濱江,串聯民生路、桃林路、源深路、福山路、東方路等重要城市街道,建成後將突出文化休閒和體驗功能,是打造浦江文化高地的重點項目之一。將集東岸貫通道、濱水大道、城市廣場、開放式公共綠地等為一體。已被上海市政府於 “十三五” 期間公佈納入為濱江綠地及公共空間內新建公共服務配套設施的重點項目之一。

West 8 本著開發主體“安全、舒適、健康、環保、高效” 的原則,以“簡單美麗、輕鬆浪漫”為設計原則,從多個方面量身為其打造了高品質的景觀和城市設計。完成後將具有國際高水準和濃厚健身、藝術氛圍、公益性質的公共綠地公園。

新華濱江項目在與主要的城市交接點自然形成四大城市廣場:

  • 民生路輪渡站區域依托民生文化城西入口,形成 民生文化廣場
  • 源深路的 港口廣場 借東岸三號燈塔, 成為新華濱江沿江遊艇碼頭的主要入口;
  • 福山路兩座工業遺產建築之間的 百子廣場 是雙層水岸城市濱江段的核心;
  • 其昌棧輪渡口東側的 新華廣場;雖然面積相對較小,卻是連接浦東重要商業街道東方路和濱江慢行線的關鍵節點。

項目現已進入深化階段,工程將在三月正式動工,期待年底的順利建成,以實踐在“十三五”期末把新華濱江打造成為黃浦江兩岸新的城市亮點的目標。
