West Bund Financial Hub

West Bund Financial Hub

The master plan for the West Bund Financial Hub establishes a major new mixed-use neighborhood on a prominent waterfront site in Shanghai’s Xuhui District.

The neighborhood is primarily comprised of office, with additional residential, hospitality, cultural, and retail components. Organized around three central axes, business, cultural, and leisure, the district features two primary entry points on the eastern and western boundaries of the site. The diverse mix of program spread throughout the site ensures a level of activity throughout all times of day.

In order to enhance the district's connectivity, sunken gardens thread the site together below grade. Above ground, the cultural spine runs centrally through the site, while a series of skywalks and landscaped terraces link the various programmatic areas together.

Like the overall masterplan, the main commercial hub of the district is imagined as a varied and vibrant urban neighborhood. The massing and facades of KPF’s office towers take inspiration from the Old Bund district, and are designed to bring scale to the human experience while defining the neighborhood with a dynamic, iconic and forward-looking profile on the new Xuhui skyline.
