    Surbana Jurong Private Limited has won a contract to provide full-suite design services for a housing project in Baoshan city in Yunnan province, China. The project, awarded by the local Baoshan government, consists of 26 blocks of over 2,000 housing units, a multi-storey carpark, a kindergarten and a neighbourhood centre.

    The project occupies a total site area of 418,000 sqm and is expected to be completed in three years. The project, which is about one quarter the size of Singapore’s Marine Parade estate, will reflect the community-centric design that Singapore’s townships are renowned for, with spaces for residents’ interactions and accessible amenities and services. At the same time, it will be planned with sustainability in mind, for example, by greening the roof of the multi-storey carpark.

    “We are excited to partner the city government in bringing the best of our township design and planning concepts to Baoshan city. China, like many rapidly urbanising cities around the world, will face increasing demand for affordable, quality housing. This project will showcase how local governments can partner Surbana Jurong to create sustainable township and positively shape the lives of its people and the community.” said Wong Heang Fine, Surbana Jurong Group CEO.

    Baoshan city’s vice mayor Geng Mei said, “This township project is Baoshan’s commitment to create a beautiful and sustainable city in this Southwestern region of the BRI. Our partnership with Surbana Jurong, a global company with proven track record in creating sustainable township, will ensure this project will be a success.”
