This precedent-setting project will have a long-term impact on the people and commerce of this region as it undergoes a major transformation spurred by a national policy encouraging the relocation of industry from coastal towns to inland urban cities. It aims to reflect a new city life of organic growth, which integrates capital with talents, tourism with industry and production with life.

We were appointed to create a master plan for this project, embracing density and promoting walkable mixed-use districts where economic nodes, residential communities and commercial options co-exist. Our design concept is to leverage as many local natural resources as possible and create an environment that is both functional and liveable.

The mixed-use master plan includes housing for high-tech and manufacturing companies, residential communities and tourism. The idea is to foster harmonious synergy between industry and sustainability. We are achieving this goal through its Performance-Driven Design SM approach, which seeks to promote solutions that have multiple benefits across the triple bottom line of economic, social, and environmental value.
