Zhangjian Science City

DESIGN VISION, ZHANGJIANG SCIENCE CITY
EVOLVING NEXT GEN MIXED USE

Strategically located in the Zhangjian Science City Sub-center core area in Shanghai, plot 56-01 will be a true leader in establishing the next generation mixed use development as a hub for the scientific and technological innovation. With its strong transport connectivity, programmatic richness and iconic central green space, the project will become an epicenter of public activity and a point of reference in the larger urban master plan. Our proposal for a “Tech Village” interlinks the established mixed use model with a network of hybrid work spaces that respond to the needs of the tech industry for hyper connected and flexible environments that promote well-being and social interaction. To achieve this effect, we are dedicating the first four floors of the project to incubator spaces, meeting areas, cowork cafes, flexible green spaces, sport facilities, retail and outdoor terraces. These will function as the connective tissue of the project and will play a key role in establishing a fertile startup ecosystem. While accounting for most of the project’s area, the typical office floors above will provide world class HQ facilities for new and established firms, that will benefit from being part of a larger tech community as well as
enjoy strong identity and brand visibility. Taken together, these factors will ensure the project’s - and by extension the Zhangjian Science City’s - ability to function as a catalyst for technological innovation and an attractor for high-level talent from home and abroad.
