Paradise City, or Royal Jiangnan, is a new town project in Foshan, projected to house 25,000 people and 20,000 m² of commercial and retail space. EKISTICS undertook full design service including the detailed master plan, the landscape design, and the commercial centre and clubhouse architecture.
The primary organizing feature of the master plan is a linear parkway road that organizes, provides access and is the main onsite circulation network. This road was very carefully designed to fit into the existing site character and provide a 4 km linear park as well as a road from which the individual neighbourhoods are accessed.
A wide range of villa, townhouse, garden apartment and high-rise neighbourhoods are nestled into the natural environment of the site and accessed from the parkway. Park space, forests and lakes divide the neighbourhoods into a series of distinct development parcels set within the natural environment. A commercial centre at the project entrance, two clubhouses, a school, a sports parks and various recreation facilities are organized to serve each residential neighbourhood providing a high degree of amenity for residents.
