Bingjiang Aqua City
“...a new Yangtze River landmark”
Set on a spectacular site along the world famous and historic Yangtze River, Bingjian Yangtze Aqua City (BJAC) has a rare opportunity and deep responsibility to be the catalyst in the evolution of one of Shanghai’s important districts into its next life as a world-class residential and business destination. Baoshan’s role in China’s critical steel industry’s success required its convenient location along the Yangtze River. Now, as in other top tier world cities, this waterfront location is being transformed into new residential and commercial neighborhoods which offer an urban lifestyle not achievable in the crowded downtown districts. Through its unique interwoven fabric of lifestyle, work, play and culture, BJAC will be a crucial first step in this evolution, setting a new standard for waterfront development.
By keeping its focus first and foremost on the people, BJAC will create a fundamental catalyst that can propel the evolution of the entire Baoshan District. The key site strategies focus on weaving the project’s 1.7 km length together to create a new standard in urban lifestyle set in nature. Through its unique giant tipped park and three unique pedestrian promenades – the Riverline, Highline and Greenlines – BJAC sets the stage for an integrated lifestyle fostering a connection to nature, a strong sense of community and new landmark for Shanghai.
