Kunshan Miaojing River Corridor Phase One is about to Open!
May 24th, 2022
We are excited that Phase One of the Kunshan Miaojing River Corridor is built! Three and a half linear kilometers of park space with pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, waterfront lookout, wetland education center, audio library, east entrance visitor center and lawn will be open to the public.
The initial site study was conducted in 2016, with our studio designing a conceptual framework for the entire site. Our planning and ecological strategies won an ASLA-NCC Award of Excellence for Research, Planning, Analysis, and Communication in 2018. After years of design and client feedback, phase one construction began in Fall 2020 and is wrapped in Summer 2022.
The Miaojing River Corridor in West Kunshan transforms a historically preserved waterway into six linear kilometers of public park and ecological infrastructure. The project aims to drive the green infrastructure development of Kunshan West with the River acting as the central axis of abundant ecological value and recreational programs for surrounding communities. This Corridor will surpass its initial life as a functional canal and water resource to act as an ecological and recreational spine connecting Kunshan West to Old Town Kunshan.
