KPF added this project to its website.

MEIXI LAKE
CHANGSHA, PRC

CLIENT : GALE INTERNATIONAL


Meixi Lake is a New City in the West Changsha Pioneer Zone in the Hunan Province of the People’s Republic of China. Meixi Lake will be home to 180,000 inhabitants and will provide sustainable neighborhoods for living, working, recreation, culture, entertainment and convention. The CBD wraps around a 3.85 kilometer long lake lined with a public promenade from which canals and gardens connect to the eight residential neighborhoods. This city maintains the highest international standards for sustainable living.

The KPF design for the Meixi Lake master plan seeks to establish a paradigm of man living in balance with nature. A densely concentrated urban plan, packed with a full variety of functions and building types, is integrated with mountains, lakes, parks and canals, resulting in an environment which promotes both health and prosperity. As a new center within the larger metropolitan area of Changsha, Meixi proposes to offer a new model for the future of the Chinese city. Advanced environmental engineering, pedestrian planning, cluster zoning, and garden integration, are all made part of a holistic strategy of design in this healthy city.

The first element of the Meixi plan is water. Water is retained to form a 40 hectare lake, which constitutes the "central park" of the city. This lake provides for boat transport linkages, creates conditions for edge gardens, and makes places for cultural venues. Around the circular heart of this water body is wrapped the mixed use CBD. Here, high rise building districts are connected by a pedestrian tram street, reducing the need for car use in the city center.

Radiating from the water's edge is a series of canals, allowing for boat transport from the city center to any one of eight neighborhood clusters. Each cluster houses about 10,000 people, and includes a village center featuring a school, shopping area, and other public functions. These neighborhoods are separated from one another by green buffers which accommodate exercise fields and natural landscape zones. The architecture of each "village" will be different, but material and formal coherence will be encouraged within each zone so as to create a sense of place.

That entire project is AMAZING.
The highest skyscraper reminds freedom tower, with the narrow base which becomes wider and then narrow again. Nothing here is very iconic but the entire bunch is just stunning.

Why? Hunan has 67 million inhabitants and its economy is booming like any other Chinese province.

Hunan province, Changsha is its capital. The capital city of a territory with over 65 million inhabitants whose economy is booming like crazy can absorb a CBD like this in a mid-long term. That's Changsha's target with this masterplan. I can't really see the problem.
