10 DESIGN has been selected from 4 international architectural practices in a competition to design China Resources Land’s (CR Land) Hengqin Wanxiang World in Zhuhai, China.
CR Land in cooperation with Macao’s New Fenghong Real Estate Development and China Resources Trust have invested 50 billion yuan to build this premium development. Covering a total GFA of over two million sqm, the joint venture expects the project to begin construction in September 2016. When completed, this project will create approximately 50,000 jobs in Zhuhai and generate nearly 1 billion yuan in tax revenue each year, further promoting the economic growth of Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao.
Hengqin Wanxiang World is a large scale mixed use development with destination retail as a major anchor to create a dynamic new city centre. Ted Givens – Design Partner at 10 DESIGN said, “To realise CR Land’s vision, the design team created an ‘Experience Central Square’, which marks the nexus of the river and mountain geometries that surround the site. This large central hub becomes the active heart of the masterplan unifying 4 neighbourhoods and providing a vibrant retail and cultural destination.”
Miriam Au Yeung - Project Director and Partner at 10 DESIGN further expanded, “In addition to the ‘Experience Central Square’, the energy of the city centre is ignited by the diverse mix of amenities including the Central Green Belt - Wanxiang Avenue, Retail Axis, Waterfront Promenade, National Pavilions, Expo and Convention Centre.
