Financial CBD in the Pearl River Mega City
International Financial District
Location: Zhuhai, China
Client: Zhong Jin Tong Hui
Program: 234 ha Masterplan for international business hub, including a CBD (24,8ha), commercial areas (23,5ha), residential (47,1ha) and offices (27,5ha)
Zhuhai Financial District is conceptualized as a mix use quarter that combines commercial and office uses with residential, social infrastructure and cultural institutions. It forms the extension of an already developed business cluster adjacent to Macao.
The central element of the plan is formed by a ‘square half mile’ that forms the future financial district. The other uses are grouped around this CBD. They are connected with each other and the business district by means of a green space. This open space allows for green routes and water management equally and provides an attractive environment for commuters to walk and cycle to work rather than using the car.
