A revitalised coastal destination for Shenzhen
HASSELL has won a competition for our master plan to renew China’s Xiaomeisha beach precinct and the much-loved Ocean World tourist attraction in Shenzhen.
In partnership with Shenzhen Urban Planning and Design Institute (UPDIS) our master plan renews the clean, sandy cove and positions a major water plaza as the new focal point of a mixed-use community. The redevelopment of Ocean World will create a landmark and re-establish Xiaomeisha as a weekend destination for the people of Shenzhen and beyond.
“The master plan will embrace both the ocean and the new sustainable redevelopment of Xiaomeisha,” says HASSELL Principal Dennis Ho.
“New functions and public spaces are sensitively integrated within the local landscape and existing urban setting.”
