Restored and re-energized
Broadway Malyan was commissioned to design a concept that would regenerate the disused Yangshupu Power Plant in Shanghai, China. The site, home to one of China’s first coal-fired power stations, will be transformed into a high quality mixed-use development overlooking the Huangpu River.
Located in the Yangpu district of Shanghai, the project comprises three towers with a mix of office, retail, residential, hotel and livework space. A retail mall and lifestyle shopping areas will be developed within the old power station, complemented by food and beverage facilities and significant public realm and landscaping.
Existing features of the power station including two chimneys (110m and 180m), three ash storage tanks and the coal conveyer and unloaders on the riverfront will be retained and form integral features of the design. One of the old warehouse buildings will be refurbished and house a new museum about the history of the site.
We wanted to combine the heritage and history of the site with something modern and vibrant which would provide a new leisure and retail destination for the community.
