The project is located in TESTBED 2, an innovation campus regenerated from the previous Chongqing No. Printing Factory which also known as Central Bank’s Banknote Printing Factory of Republic of China. It sits on the top of topographical Eling Park with excellent views towards Yangtze River. It is an educational center in Chongqing for Hundun University, a 21-century internet based university.
