Project: Shougang Park Urban Weaving District
Award: Future Projects – Mixed Use, Silver, 2022
Location: Hong Kong, China
Client: Shougang Group
The mixed-use urban regeneration masterplan for Shougang Park will form a vibrant gateway to the 2022 Winter Olympics site in Beijing. It will see the transformation of a 100-year-old Steel Factory into a vast 938,000 m2 multi-activity destination that is not only a public transport interchange for Shougang’s metro stations but also encompasses retail, office, hotel and entertainment spaces. The scheme is targeting high-tech firms as future tenants.
The masterplan preserves the original industrial infrastructure such as heritage columns and brick work and rebuilds many of the historic buildings. Each former factory building features its own themed atrium and exposes the interior detailing of the historic structures.
Five metro lines will have exits in the underground interchange station while the well-planned pedestrian network maximises circulation across the development and seamlessly connects the entire Shougang Park below-ground, at ground level and above-ground on multiple floors.
