Two projects in Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province, have been selected as Chinese 20th Century Architectural Heritage promotion projects, as announced on Sept 16.

Out of a total of 101 projects selected, two are in Taizhou: the Jiangsha Tidal Test Power Station and the Enze Medical Bureau Site.

The Jiangsha Tidal Test Power Station is situated in Jiangsha Port, southwest of Wenling, a county-level city in Taizhou. It is the largest tidal power station in China, the second largest in Asia, and the fourth largest in the world. The prominent structures of the station comprise dams, spillways, and powerhouses. In 2019, it was designated as a national-level key cultural relic protection unit.

Located in Gucheng sub-district, Linhai, a county-level city in Taizhou, the Enze Medical Bureau Site was constructed by British missionary Bai Mingdeng during the 27th year of the Guangxu reign of the Qing Dynasty (1901). It currently encompasses three two-story buildings made of brick and wood.

In 2017, it was registered as a provincial-level cultural relic protection unit and later acknowledged as a national-level key cultural relic protection unit in 2019.
