Architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has designed a master plan for the Dawangjing District in Beijing, China.

The master plan includes integrated solutions for energy, water conservation and transit systems in the district.

The proposed scheme is strategically positioned just over 11km from Beijing Capital International Airport and will include public parks, cultural venues and landmark high rises, which would create a new global gateway for the city.

The master plan won an international competition to guide the district’s redevelopment launched by the Beijing Chaoyang District Planning Bureau.

The master plan will be built in phases and will provide a vibrant, mixed-use hub for the Wangjing District that is currently seeing high-density residential projects undertaken with little commercial support.

The scheme is designed to support up to 1,500,000m² of potential future development.
