Project’s area is part of Jinshan New Town and develops along a 5.8 km’s long shoreline.
The site is characterized by the presence of a beach area protected by an artificial basin, a railway station connecting to Shanghai city center and by the most ancient fi sherman village still active in Shanghai region.
