Chapman Taylor’s ambitious mixed-use vision for Xiangyang in China

Chapman Taylor recently entered an ambitious concept design in a competition to create a future-orientated business, culture, tourism and innovation district in Xingyang, in the Chinese province of Hubei.

Designed to form part of the 8.5km2 Hubei Xiangyang Cultural Tourism Demonstration Zone, the striking and technologically advanced development would be at the heart of Xianyang’s Dongjin New District, along the eastern bank of the Han River.

The 1.55 million m2 development concept envisages a wide mix of uses, which would include an office and commercial centre, retail and leisure, residential areas, tourist amenities and educational institutions.

A riverside ecopark, a wildlife park, arts centres, an indoor winter sports arena, a ferris wheel park, sports venues, creative neighbourhoods, a marine park, culturally themed hotels and vibrant, entertainment-focused city squares would create the basis for a major culture and leisure destination in Hubei which will attract tourists from across the region and beyond.

Chapman Taylor created this mixed-use concept for a design competition held by HBCI Xiangyang City Development Co. Ltd., which was looking for a fitting business, entertainment and cultural core for the development area’s second district.
