the project is located in Suqian, a city located in the Jiangsu province 200 km north of Nanjing.
the first part of the project comprises of the master plan: a design of a 300m long x 70m wide mixed use waterfront retail precinct with varied programs which include entertainment, leisure, sports, restaurants, bars, serviced apartments, residential and a variety of retail activities.
for the master plan the two filaments spanning north/south and emanating from a central building form, form the two main figures.
The master plan has been conceived as a pedestrian precinct offering a variety of pedestrian focused urban activities such as a waterfront promenade, public plazas, water?s edge entertainment and leisure.
a network of pedestrian circulation paths and bridges on the upper levels ensure continuous multiple levels of circulation throughout the entire site.
