Masterplanner and Architect: LWK + PARTNERS
Location: Hunan Province, China

Masterplan concepts and major architectural highlights for Hunan OCT Caoqiao Cultural Commercial Street in China have been revealed by architectural practice LWK + PARTNERS. It is as one of the two new leisure-cultural projects collaborated with Overseas Chinese Town, the other being a site in the city of Xiangyang, following the earlier Zhongshan OCT Harbour. These projects continue to show their shared commitment to embrace natural ecology in quality urban communities.
Hunan OCT Caoqiao Cultural Commercial Street is part of Laiyan New Town in Hengyang and shares its vision to create a multifunctional urban space with a mix of recreational tourism and city living. It will be developed in three phases: the first focuses on well-curated consumer experience, the second proposes a kind of cultural living that combines tradition and modernity, and the third outlines a community that supports creativity, business and habitation with high-rise apartment blocks.
