The population of the rapidly growing city in the east of China is expected to jump sharply by 17 percent over the next 10 years. The city, which boasted a population of 19.2 million at the end of 2010, is on course to have 21.4 million residents by 2015 and some 22.5 million by 2020. Given Shanghai’s rapid urbanization, the strategically positioned Qiantan ES4 Precinct will be the third central business district of Shanghai. The location will serve as a major public transport interchange and a waterfront entertainment destination.

Diversity will be the key to the Qiantan’s long-term appeal. The well-designed mixed-use community will attract residents, workers, regional visitors, retailers and tourists, ensuring the economic stability of Qiantan Precinct.

Qin Pang, Project Designer at Benoy, notes, ‘This iconic development will form an affluent multi-layered and well-connected city. The project is expected to attract RMB 100 billion in future investment to the area, which encompasses the North-South axis along Huangpu River and the East-West axis along Middle Ring Road.’

The Masterplan design successfully integrates a mix of commercial, residential, cultural, and recreational uses. The 34 hectare core area will comprise over 1.8 million square meters of mixed-use development including:

• Retail and entertainment: 600,000 sqm
• Office and hotel: 900,000 sqm
• Residential: 300,000 sqm
• Tall Tower: 300 m

Ian Hau, Urban Designer at Benoy, ‘The Benoy Masterplan put forward a vision to create Shanghai’s premier business address, residential community, transportation nexus and lifestyle destination for Shanghai – a precinct that will be unique in its quality and sense of place. The concept incorporates an Urban Design framework for infrastructure, planning and design that will deliver an attractive place for workers, residents, and tourists. The Masterplan is intended to inform the large-scale urban, economic and real estate decisions, which will be made in the coming months.’
