South River Port presented itself as an opportunity like none other. An expansive 2km long waterfront and a cove formed at the center of the site, enable the core of the development to have unobstructed views of the waterfront along the river, and the green island beyond.
Our proposal aims to bring nature back to the site, taking advantage of the green belt flowing in from the north, and also providing a connection to a proposed Central Park, which will have a positive impact to the site, and its surrounding communities. The project also envisions the creation of a landmark Transit Oriented Development (TOD), seamlessly connecting South River Port City to all parts of city via both land and water.

Project Phase:
ACTIVATING THE EMBANKMENT
Refreshing of the embankment along its entire length, which will be inscribed in the development programs of the territory: parks and gardens, marina and food market to the Museum of Modern Art.

FORMING 2 KEY AXIS
The decision leads to the formation of blue and green zones: one overlooks the river; the second opens towards the central park in the north. The zones form a public square and activate an invisible axis linking the central park to the river.

A TOD HEART
The heart of the complex is the site, which is connected to the metro station through the glass grand atrium TOD. The atrium is connected to the transit plaza to the north and the ferry pier to the south.
Project concept
02
The concept envisions the activation of the full length of the embankment, providing an array of spaces with different characters. From parks and gardens, the Marina and Food Market, to the Museum of Modern Art and Theater, the embankment features elements that activate spaces both on land, and out on the water. Floating stages and restaurants formalize public spaces on the water, with the iconic cantilevered bridge reinforcing the public events space at the center. Lastly, little follies in the form of kiosks and pavilions are integrated as spots along the embankment, supporting the lifestyles and activities of residents and visitors alike, reconnecting them with the river.
Masterplan
03
The landmark triple towers integrate the transportation interchange hub at its heart, with an active public plaza and destination retail, along with offices and serviced apartments.
At the base of the towers, the Grand Atrium serves as a vertical circulation node, or "Urban Core", where direct connections to all transportation modes are possible.
