Construction work on the core and shell of the newly named Bund City Hall Plaza has completed in Shanghai. The project has seen the refurbishment and extension of the former Shanghai Municipal Council Building, which was built in the early twentieth century and listed in 1989. The complex has been restored and adapted to include a mix of office and civic spaces with key historic interiors opened to the public for the first time. Extensions complete the urban block following the unrealized original design and are a contemporary interpretation of the historic architecture. A permeable and public ground floor activates the central courtyard which contains another historic building and a new build housing hospitality functions and events spaces respectively. Interior work will continue with the project set to open in 2025.
