The competition brief required an iconic solution for a landmark site. The site occupies an entire city block within close proximity of the historic Shanghai Bund. The winning design by PTW & CSCEC consists of a 10,000m² Sport Centre featuring the iconic Sport Box and a 20,000m² Business Centre both sharing the central courtyard garden which also re-instates a green public through site link. The Sport Box concept combines the dry and wet sports component in one prominent volume giving the entire complex landmark status along the Yan An Freeway.

The wet sports areas include a 50m competition pool with moveable boom and floor for mixed programming, a 25m training pool with hot/cold spa pools, separate changing rooms, and a café.
