XUHUI RIVERSIDE PUBLIC OPEN SPACE (SHANGHAI CORNICHE)
Xuhui Riverside Public Open Space (Shanghai Corniche)
The Xuhui Riverside Public Open Space, also known as the Shanghai Corniche, is a popular tourist attraction along the banks of the Huangpu River. Peter Verity of PDR Ltd has won an International competition in 2008 during a design competition hosted by the municipality. The redevelopment in this suburb contains a number of residential complexes, commercial zones, as well as cultural, recreational and entertainment facilities. But the municipality has retained the environmental and ecological aspects of the locality. With the introduction of modern energy-saving public transport systems and low-carbon constructions, this redevelopment is an example of the progressive China of today. The restaurants and multiplexes are popular tourist attractions.
