WUSHUI PARK CITY, NANTONG
Nantong, at the gate of the Yangtze River, is an important industrial base in modern Chinese history. Located in the Yangtze River Delta city cluster and the one-hour economic circle of Shanghai and Suzhou, Nantong’s urban renewal has huge regional advantages and development potential.
The site connects the Yangtze River Estuary wharf area and the Wushu Square New Town area, totalling 510 hectares. The project is centred on the key cultural and tourism programs of the Yangtze River Estuary and supported by Fenshuidao Sports Park, connecting multiple levels of urban public spaces, and activating the urban commercial and residential functions in the region. It responses to a series of urban renewal issues such as port area renewal, historical and cultural protection, and new ecological cultural tourism implantation in a diversified and open way.
