Beitun, China

We are currently preparing a masterplan to guide the expansion of the city of Beitun in China. Located within North West Xinjiang province, Beitun is a land locked ‘port’ for transportation of goods through China and into the surrounding countries. The proposed expansion will increase the city’s current population from 30,000 to 250,000 residents and is a key element of China’s 5 year rolling National Government expansion plan.

In particular, the client wishes to see the delivery of an eco-city, relying on clean power generation, recycled water and comprehensive waste management. The site lies adjacent to an area of high ecological value and an eco-tourism strategy will add to the employment offer.
