A Unique and Striking Mixed-Use Iconic Development

TOWNLAND was invited to participate in an international design Competition to undertake the urban design of an area surrounding the Suzhou Hi-Tech Industrial Area Inter-City Railway Station. The Site lies west of the city centre of Suzhou and adjacent to a major belt of hi-tech industrial developments.        

The Project aimed to create a comprehensive mixed-use sub-centre for the Suzhou Hi-Tech Industrial Area. A band of commercial and retail uses aligned east to west has been located directly on either side of the Station. The design introduces a central man-made lake utilizing the natural landscape resources along the existing Great Canal that lies to the south of the Site. Four high end waterfront residential clusters have been located around the central lake area, as well as along the Great Canal.     

Overall TOWNLAND’s objective was to create a unique and striking mixed-use iconic development that will become the gateway into not only the Suzhou Hi-Tech Industrial Area, but into Suzhou as a whole.
