Architecture firm Benoy to regenerate historic Ningbo port site

Benoy has been appointed to redevelop a new mixed-use destination in one of China's oldest cities, historic Ningbo. The development (known as Sino Ocean) will be situated on the riverfront, the historical port site will be transformed into a commercial destination, and the project aims to preserve the memory of the area's heritage through a new mixed-use, retail and cultural destination for the community. Established in the 8th century AD, the historic Ningbo became one of the biggest ports in East Asia and remains one of the world's busiest.Capture"Ningbo is steeped in history and we are incredibly proud to be working on this special regeneration project. As designers, we are excited to work on something that will be part of the evolving city – creating a vibrant new destination nestled among a historical site," said Hao Li, senior associate director at Benoy. The firm's design inserts new blocks throughout the site which will form spaces for pedestrian thoroughfares, retail and cultural activities.

Benoy has a strong reputation and long history of successful regeneration projects. The firm's portfolio includes Nanjing MCC World, HARBOUR CITY's Gala Avenue Westside in Shanghai, the David Jones Flagship Building in Sydney and TSUM Department Store in Kiev.historic ningbo
