CBI member Mott MacDonald is currently designing a 145,000 square metre mixed-use development in Guilin in southern China, which is worth 2.5 billion yuan (£237 million).
Known as the Guilin Hua Yang Cheng development, the site will comprise a luxury shopping mall, a Wal-Mart supermarket, a five-star Sheraton hotel, serviced apartments, a cinema, and sports facilities. Scheduled to be opened by the end of 2013, the development will be the first high-class, mixed-use development in Guilin.
Commenting on the development, project director Philip Chan said, "Mott MacDonald is delighted to be involved in this high-profile project, which will bring Guilin in line with other Chinese cities in providing high quality, mixed-use developments.
"This is the first large scale project in China which will utilise the skills and expertise of both our Hong Kong and Shanghai offices for delivery of the design documentation. We see that this collaboration will be further developed for other major building opportunities in China."
