A wide range of amenities

Chapman Taylor has won an international competition for a major 300,000m² mixed-use destination in a strategic location facing the Weihe River in Xi’an. The project is situated on two development sites within the redevelopment zone of Xi’an international port and will create a unique range of cultural, convention, hospitality, workplace, entertainment, retail and sports functions.

Creating an international template

The scheme’s planning maximises the potential provided by all these activities to produce a leading international model for an urban destination development, carefully integrating the many complex elements to ensure synergy between all the forms and functions.

A dramatic city gateway

A key project driver was to create a variety of distinctive and dramatic contemporary architectural forms which respond to the gateway context and give personality to the individual sites.

Modern design which honours the city's past

The concept also references Xi’an’s distinguished past by interpreting traditional architectural forms in its modern 3D expression, and by creating an extraordinary roofscape leisure park based on the history of the ancient Silk Road.
