A Garden City in Shanghai

Shanghai Songjiang District Master Plan
Shanghai, China

The new district will contribute to the rapid transformation and modernization of Songjiang New Town.

HOK’s master plan for Shanghai’s Songjiang International Eco-Commercial District provides a framework for developing a sustainable central business district dedicated to higher education and high-tech development.

The landscape integrates business, commercial, cultural, residential, retail and entertainment facilities into a vibrant, mixed-use borough.

The project will facilitate Songjiang’s transformation from a manufacturing-based city to a high-tech, culturally rich district in the Yangtze River Delta region.
