10 DESIGN has won a competition to design China Resources Land’s (CR Land) "Hengqin Wanxiang World," a 2.3 million square meter (25 million square foot) mixed used development to be located in Zhuhai, China. The complex will include destination retail locales centered around an “Experience Central Square,” which will serve as a venue for a variety of cultural and performance programs. Construction on the massive development is set to begin this month.

“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,” said Ted Givens, Designer Partner at 10 DESIGN. “This large central hub becomes the active heart of the masterplan unifying 4 neighbourhoods and providing a vibrant retail and cultural destination.”

The immense scale of the project meant design needed to begin at the urban scale. To create pedestrian-friendly routes that connect to the urban fabric, the project features a central green belt linking to different activated streets, a convention center and waterfront walkways.

“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,” explained Miriam Au Yeung, Project Director and Partner at 10 DESIGN.

Givens added, “Sustainable design is a key driver for the master plan design. The first concept is to minimise the energy requirements through simple passive solar principles. Another goal is to reduce the reflectance and light pollution generated by the project through maximising the solid areas of the tower façades. With the proximity to the river, treating the storm water run-off through bio swales and abundant garden spaces is also very critical to achieving an eco-responsible design.”

CR Land in cooperation with Macao’s New Fenghong Real Estate Development and China Resources Trust have set aside 50 billion yuan for the construction of the development, which is expected to create approximately 50,000 new jobs and generate nearly 1 billion yuan in tax revenue each year – promoting the economic growth of the surrounding region, which includes nearby Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macao.
