Wuhan Jiang'An Riverfront Business District

The Wuhan Jiang’an Riverfront Business District master plan establishes an expanded vision for sustainable development along the Yangtze River. Situated on a former railyard and factory site in Wuhan, China, the brownfield redevelopment incorporates industrial heritage and historic monuments into a reimagined urban fabric, most notably a nod to the historic railway worker’s uprising in 1923 that led to the formation of China’s dominant political party today.

The completion of the development’s landmark building — dubbed the Erqi or 2-7 Tower — could be timed to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of that watershed moment. In addition to recalling local history, the project will also offer a mixed-use, transit-oriented approach to urban redevelopment in China.
