Concept Design stage

A 1,100-hectare regeneration masterplan

Chapman Taylor has taken part in an urban design competition for a new waterfront district at Yangpu Riverside Mid-North region in Shanghai. Our competition design creates a new, mixed-use, masterplan for one of the former industrial heartlands of Shanghai.

A mix of uses for advanced ‘future living’

The city of Shanghai’s competition brief was for us to create an innovative city district, fully integrated into the surrounding urban fabric. The design makes provision for residential areas, research and development start-ups, a central business district, a mixed-use area and a smart development area incorporating the very latest concepts in sustainable and technologically advanced ‘future living’.   

Fuxing Island

To the north of Gonqing forest park will be an industrial incubation R&D district, well served by public transport, while the only island in the Huangpu River, Fuxing Island, will be home to a state-of-the-art 'smart development' which will produce a very low carbon footprint and act as a model for future sustainable districts.

Chapman Taylor’s masterplan concept will regenerate an important urban development area of Shanghai and create a city district fully equipped for the demands of the 21st century.
