Benoy Architects to bring new life to historic Nanjing site with mixed-use development Nanjing MCC World

Benoy, together with developer MCC Real Estate Group, has been appointed to redevelop a mixed-use destination on the banks of the Yangtze River in Nanjing, China. The project, titled Nanjing MCC World will see the regeneration of an old ice-storage warehouse built in 1915 into a new commercial and retail hub for the district. 

While the structure will retain much of its original form and historical buildings, there will be new builds on the site. "As designers, how we respect the hundred-year-old heritage of the site while introducing innovative retail, culture and hospitality offers has been an exciting opportunity," said Qin Pang, director at Benoy.

"Nanjing is evolving and our design reflects the vision for the city — revitalising under-utilised [sic] developments and creating vibrant new destinations," said Qin.

A refined architectural expression on the outer street side elevations will be offset with more playful modern cubes. Through careful placement of the additional new buildings, Benoy was able to preserve the local views of the historical structures which was crucial in the design brief.

In addition to Nanjing MCC World, Benoy has a strong portfolio of regeneration projects including HARBOUR CITY's Gala Avenue Westside in Shanghai, the David Jones Flagship Building in Sydney and TSUM Department Store in Kiev.

Construction will begin later this year.
