New drone footage gives a bird’s-eye perspective of our extraordinary Global 100 development at Hainan, China

New drone footage has been released which gives a wonderful bird’s-eye perspective of the extraordinary Global 100 development at Haikou on the Chinese island of Hainan.

Global 100 is a mixed-use, leisure, retail, hospitality and residential scheme over 400 hectares, focused on a spectacular theme park. The first phase of the 170-hectare theme park consists of six different villages, each influenced by aspects of national cultures in China and Europe and the unifying theme of the Silk Road, while the second phase will be American-themed.

The English-themed village, for example, incorporates characters such as James Bond, Mr. Bean and Alice in Wonderland beside architectural emblems including castles, country villages and Victorian landscapes. The Chinese Village draws on the ancient Loulan kingdom, with a waterfront component featuring a fishing village and the giant ship from the legend of Zheng He’s expedition, combined in a theme based upon the Great Silk Road.

Chapman Taylor developed the entire Global 100 masterplan for Changchun Film Group Corporation, as well as providing the concept and architectural designs for the English and Chinese villages as well as the entrance zone to the whole theme park.

Phase one, which included much of the theme park, completed in December 2018. It is projected that, upon completion of phase two, Global 100 will attract up to 15 million visitors per year.

Chapman Taylor has built a strong reputation as world-class masterplanners on development projects across the world, able to create projects of an extraordinary scale from early concept stage right through to completion. Chapman Taylor’s design approach combines creativity with commercial astuteness to deliver successful places and spaces for people to enjoy.
