Jiaozhou Riverside Landscape
This urban renewal project aims to improve the economic, social and environmental performance of the area by focusing on three redevelopment zones: retail and entertainment; tourism and culture; and community park zone. The B+H scope of work includes landscape design for ultimately 5 mixed-use building parcels and the redesign of a 1-kilometer stretch of urban canal and new parkland.
Enhancements to the area include a vibrant entertainment deck bridging over the upper canal and a dramatic 50-meter wide waterfall marking the entrance to a multi-use retail plaza. The design also includes the creation of a new urban lake with handicap-accessible islands, a green amphitheatre and numerous cultural features. The main crowd-pleaser is a lakeside cannon that blasts an arc of water high across the sky each hour. It generates dramatic sunny-day rainbows and helps cool the heat of summer.
