History

Chen Yi Square is one of four squares built along The Bund in 2010 (the three others are the Bund Financial Square, Huangpu Park, and the Observatory Plaza).

A stampede occurred on December 31, 2014 near the square. At least 36 people were killed and 47 injured in the incident. A large crowd, estimated at around 300,000, had gathered for the new year celebration.
