Huishan North Bund is the 255,000 sm anchor redevelopment for the transformation of the historic Hongkou District waterfront in Shanghai. As the newest initiative of an extensive and multi-phase riverfront revitalization, the North Bund extends several kilometers along the winding Huangpu River. Once a sequestered shipping port, the site is now poised to become a major public destination for commerce and leisure activities, as well as perform the important task of reconnecting the city with its riverfront. Designed by EE&K a Perkins Eastman company, the firm’s extensive contributions to the North Bund redevelopment comprise a total of eight new buildings, including one still under construction, constructed to varying heights up to 130 meters---and framing a new marina. Each new building features a green roof, ice storage, operable windows and raised floor systems to increase energy efficiency; and varied glass, steel and terra cotta façades designed for the controlled absorption of abundant sunlight as well as reflective light from the marina.
