Huishan North Bund
With the design of the Huishan North Bund, EE&K has introduced a new approach to large scale waterfront development to China’s financial center and most dynamic metropolis. The site offers extraordinary views of not only the river but also the Historic Bund District and the newly developing Pudding District, home too many of Shanghai’s most modern skyscrapers.
The firm’s approach centered on creating an active waterfront program for the water’s edge and focusing the development’s mixed-use development program around a series of high-quality public environments, including two marinas.
Huishan North Bund will become the centerpiece of the ongoing transformation of Shanghai’s Huang Pu River waterfront into a post-industrial era and the anchor for the redevelopment of the City’s long neglected port district. The development program includes commercial office space, Shanghai’s new shipping exchange and trading hall, retail, and parking. The firm has designed six of the buildings called for by the master plan, each a dynamic contribution to the changing skyline along the waterfront.
