Jade Necklace Guiyang

[with hok]

The project is organised around the idea of a Jade Necklace Park including public amenities and sustainable strategies meandering through the entire development.With the Jade Necklace 6.2km of continuous S-shape parkland featuring the natural landmarks of the Jiangiun Hills, Guiyang New World Masterplan aims to re-introduce a sense of place for a 300ha site already partly developed based on an earlier framework as a high end residential mixed-use community.

The scope included re-designing the masterplan and providing urban design guidelines for the entire development that will open in phases in the New Jinyang District of Guiyang, where most of the infrastructure of the capital of Guizhou Province are now relocating. The upcoming phase includes a new commercial zone and a K11 to form the northern gateway of a new CBD for which coordination with other architects and landscape consultants is required. The next phase of construction has started in 2013 and is expected to continue over the coming years.
