BDP wins Chinese masterplan project

BDP has won a masterplanning project in the city of Wuhan in China

The practice’s Manchester-based office will oversee design of an 18ha development in the so-called City of a Thousand Lakes in central China. 

Based in the city’s financial district, the Wuhan Tahan masterplan is for an office-led mixed use development.

The scheme aims to create a gateway for the transition from the city’s old business and trade district to its emerging replacement.

BDP’s design creates a modern urban complex integrating grade A office buildings with high end residential units; a terraced retail and entertainment podium; and a five-star hotel. It will be defined by two landmark office towers.

The practice is providing masterplanning, architecture, public realm and interior design for the project.

Work is due to start on site later this year. 

BDP previously led the design of a large shopping mall for InterIKEA China in Wuhan, which is due for completion at the end of 2015.

David Cash, chairman of BDP, told AJ last year that UK architects had a five-year opportunity to establish themselves in the country.
