The South Extend Plot of D&E Huangpu River project was an international planning competition organized by Shanghai to discuss the use of the site and surrounding land after the 2010 World Expo. The total planned area exceeds 4 square kilometers, including a part west of Lupu Bridge on the Pudong side of the Expo.
The project is located in the “Huangpu Second Bay” along the Huangpu River. According to the Shanghai master plan, there will be two subway and one motor vehicle cross-river tunnels near the site to connect Pudong and Puxi. Making full use of the existing roads surrounding the site and integrating these with the future traffic channels, creating a consistent urban transportation system, was one of the priorities of this plan.
Additionally, the planning sought to integrate the compound functions of office, commercial, residential, leisure and entertainment to ensure the vitality of the site and the surrounding area after completion, making it the fifth sub-center after Wujiaochang, Zhenru, Xujiahui and Huamu.
The design of the Binjiang Entertainment and Leisure Belt has become a continuation of LujiazuiBinjiang Avenue. At the same time, as part of the Shanghai Blue Channel vision, the Yanjiang Wharf will become an important node for future water transportation and sightseeing along the Huangpu River. The concept of sustainable development runs through the entire plan, making the city’s sub-center a new urban area for energy saving and emissions reduction.
