Location: Ningbo, China
Investment Value: AUS$ 100 million first stage infrastructure and construction
Critical Issues: Facilitate a development capable of anchoring a major new urban expansion centre in a superior and water sensitive fashion, and in a way that enables early cash flows to fund substantial amenity improvement and heritage reconstruction projects in a historical town to the north of the development. In 2005 Epolis (Peter Droege) was commissioned to assemble and lead the team to plan for the regeneration of Old Cicheng, a historical city with a more than 1,000 year history. The new city development is one of the earliest and largest application of water sensitive urban design in China, and Peter Droege was able to use the project to apply the know-how gained on the 27ha Victoria Park projects – but here 20 times the area.
