In October 2002, Songjiang New City planned to construct a 1 square kilometer area in British style and look - Thames Town.
It is situated 30 kilometers from Shanghai City in a beautiful natural environment.
Songjiang New City is near the largest industrial parks of Shanghai, University City and the Sheshan national scenic resort.
The overall conceptual design of Thames Town was completed by Atkins in the United Kingdom. The designer focused on creating a healthy and comfortable living environment right from the first planning phase.
Advanced environmental protection technology and new materials are widely adopted in the project. It aimed at the best harmony between people, residential area and nature.
