New Master Plan Activates the Yangpu Riverfront
With the goal of restoring an aged industrial area in Shanghai to its former life as a residential district of tremendous vitality, the vision for the Yangpu Ba Dai Tou master plan weaves together residential new construction with office, hotel, retail spaces, parks and public amenities to create a fully integrated mixed-use district. The master plan puts tremendous focus on the connectivity of the parcels in a harmonious program. The key to interrelationships between the spaces and throughout the master plan is the dynamic Dragon Spine, a pedestrian connector that brings life to the area. The integrated district combines urban density, greenspace, and strong pedestrian linkages with the repurposing of select historic buildings to create an engaging, multi-faceted community.
