A Historic Chinese Hub is Reborn

Wuhan Han Zhen Street Urban Renewal Project

“It was truly a great collaboration and we look forward to working with HOK on future projects. HOK has impressed us not only with the eye-catching design solution that addressed the complicated contextual issues, but also the team’s professionalism and enthusiasm.”

A former center for international business in Wuhan, China, received a 21st-century update, including an innovative skywalk feature.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the historic Han Zheng Street was one of China’s most important commercial hubs. Today, it is in need of major renovations to return it to its status as a bustling center of commerce.

Maintaining the existing urban fabric, the design creates multiple commercial nodes. As an extension of the existing Han Zheng Street spine, a skywalk linking several skyscrapers echoes the district’s history in a modern way.
