Xuhui Runway Park

Xuhui Runway Park is an urban revitalisation project that breathes new life into a unique piece of Shanghai's history.

Within the large-scale regeneration of the former industrial waterfront district, the park serves as a runway of modern life, offering a space of recreation for nearby communities, as well as a respite from the high-density redevelopment around.

Following its construction, many residential, commercial and office developments were grounded in its adjacent blocks, and the property value of the neighborhood increased dramatically. The park's strong sustainable initiatives have earned it the first SITES Gold certification in Mainland China.

This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
