Wuhan to get green center done by US firm
21 January 2015
China Daily Excerpt



California-based architecture firm 5+design is creating Wuhan's first environmentally-sustainable lifestyle center.

The mixed-use project will take up about 172 acres of the capital city of Hubei province, with neighborhoods centered around metro stations, open spaces and pedestrian-friendliness.

The project is to be completed in two phases: the first phase - construction of the residential towers, mall and underground - will be completed by 2016.

The second phase will be done a year or so later and will include connecting those buildings with an office tower, according to Mike Ellis, managing principal at 5+design. This project will cater to a "high value" community, Ellis said, as mixed-use centers usually are.

Ellis told China Daily that the project is set within a larger community that is all being developed by Shui On Land, a Hong Kong developer that has completed projects in major Chinese cities. The company is best known for its development of Shanghai's Xintiandi, an eating, shopping and entertainment district in Shanghai.

"We are excited to see the beginning of a project that is very much an original in its approach to merging urban life with the natural environment," Ellis said. "This project is expected to bring a new element to the mix of how a community interacts with the built environment and in the process, hopefully showcase a new method of how to bring often polarized design uses together."

Within the space, there will be two office buildings, two residential buildings and with retail buildings, which are designed to open up to the outdoors when the weather is right, minimizing the need for air conditioning, according to Ellis.

"It's been designed to be opened to the environment," he said.

City clusters to lift Yangtze economy
6 April 2015
Xinhua Excerpt

Strategy will deepen reform, promote new type of urbanization

China unveiled a plan on Sunday to develop city clusters along the middle reaches of the Yangtze River in a move to create a new economic growth engine and promote new urbanization.

The plan envisions urban clusters around Wuhan in Hubei province, the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan city group in Hunan province and clusters around Poyang Lake in Jiangxi province, said the State Council, the nation's cabinet.

The clusters cover a total area of 317,000 sq km and are a pillar of the Yangtze River Economic Belt. They will also be key areas to implement the Rise of Central China strategy, deepen reform and opening-up and promote a new type of urbanization, the State Council said in a statement on the government website.

Priority will be given to coordinated development between urban and rural areas and connectivity of infrastructure, such as construction of important transportation, water conservation and energy projects, the statement said.

The Rise of Central China strategy emerged in 2004 amid efforts to achieve more balanced development. Last year, the nation began creating an economic belt along the Yangtze to promote better coordination in industrial development and more efficient allocation of resources among provincial regions traversed by the Yangtze, China's longest river.

Efforts will be made to make the most of each area's comparative industrial advantages, build competitive industry clusters, strengthen modern agricultural bases, promote industrial transfer among different areas, and speed up industrial upgrades, said the statement.

The plan comes as China works to facilitate economic upgrading and sustainable growth through urbanization.
