In response to the rapid development of Xiamen City in Fujian Province, the Project Team prepared a visionary Master Plan for this 470 ha waterfront area. Mixed use residential, commercial and tourism related uses are incorporated into the overall design, which includes staged island reclamation of the existing salt farm and aquaculture mudflat areas. This strategy results in a unique and ecologically sustainable model for the development of the area, as well as reaffirming Xiamen’s leading role in environmental conservation, and creation of a quality lifestyle. This innovative design includes substantial mangrove regeneration areas and also integrates well with the existing fishing village and other land uses. As a result, this Master Plan with an increased amount of waterfront land will bring about environmental and social as well as economic benefits for Xiamen as a whole.
TOWNLAND was AWARDED SECOND PRIZE for this Project.
