Zhujiajiao Watertown

This 81-HA residential community captures the essence of traditional Chinese living via a design that reinforces commitment to smart growth, sustainable planning and environmentally-sensitive design.

As China’s suburbs mature into dense urban centers, residents demand innovative, integrated and culturally sensitive approaches that tap into the true value of the land. Guided by the values of balance, harmony, family and nature, Zhujiajiao Water Town meets these objectives with interwoven buildings and public spaces that encourage pedestrian activity, promote community living and maximize the positive attributes of the site. A hierarchy of open spaces, an accessible waterfront promenade, pedestrian-oriented streets and courtyards echo Chinese heritage and culture and are juxtaposed with formal, structured spaces influenced by Western culture.
