China Set To Get Huge Futuristic International Cruise Port

China is set to get a new futuristic international cruise port. The project will transform a cargo terminal covering 66,000 square meters in Chongqing's Liangjiang New Area into a 65,000-square-metre international cruise terminal and city complex hosting a 15,000-square-metre cruise port and 50,000 square metres for commercial space. The site and associated cruise terminal sit within the Cuntan Port area, allowing access to the Yangtze River. The port will be designed by MAD Architects, who won an international competition for the design. MAD’s scheme, named the Yangtze River Skywalk, is a 430-metre-long complex comprised of six separate and interconnected elevated buildings inspired by the gantry cranes. The building's aluminium curtain wall offers the site a surreal feel bringing a contemporary freshness to the building’s mixed-use tenants, which include a parlour, shops, and restaurants. Underneath the 'floating' building complex is the new Cruise Ship Landscape Park and Cruise Ship Hall. When completed, the Cuntan International Cruise Centre will transform industrial memories into a fully realised piece of urban imagery creating a unique urban landmark in Chongqing. Construction of the Cuntan International Cruise Centre is expected to begin in November 2022 and be completed by 2027.
