A Glimpse of Dreamworks Dream Center in Shanghai

Oriental DreamWorks is developing the Dream Center, an integrated tourism destination in Shanghai that will open in 2016.

The Dream Center, to be located in Zuhui Riverside, will include theaters, restaurants, tourist attractions, cinemas, waterfront hotels, galleries, studios and other commercial facilities. The visionaries plan to create an “Oriental paradise for all dream seekers.” That could explain the proposed “Dream Walk”, the world’s largest IMAX theatre to be used for film premieres.

“Xuhui Riverside is one of the key regions to be explored in Shanghai during the ‘next National Twelfth Five-Year Plan’ period. The speed and quality of the construction will have a significant impact on the future development of Shanghai,” said Guangshao Tu, Deputy Mayor of Shanghai.

The construction of the Dream Center in Shanghai will make great use of the natural resources found alongside the Xuhui Riverside including coal, water and mud. Another goal is create a modern design that blends with the traditional buildings in the area.

“The historical context and urban characteristics of Xuhui Riverside, together with the inspiration and international connections of DreamWorks Animation, is certain to become a focus of China and the entire world,” said Ruigang Li, Chairman, China Media Capital.

“We believe that the restructuring of Shanghai’s cultural industries will benefit from these plans, giving us a unique advantage thanks to this unprecedented global vision.”

In addition to the Dream Center, Oriental DreamWorks plans to create film and television content, including “Kung Fu Panda 3” which will be released globally in 2016.
