Guizhou Hongyi Real Estate Development Ltd
DLA was appointed in 2011 by Guizhou Hongyi Real Estate Development Ltd to develop a 278ha master plan for Guiyang Huaguoyuan, at the heart of the Guizhou province in South Western China.
The master plan’s aim was to establish an important eco-leisure and tourism destination, anchored by a central business district integrated with low carbon eco-neighbourhoods served by BRT and other sustainable transport modes. The design concept was firmly rooted in the site’s natural character, using the mountains, water, and forest as key structuring elements.
The overall scale of development is over 12 million sq.m with a target population of 450,000 residents. DLA worked with an experienced consultant team including Arup and Jones Lang LaSalle.
