Construction is underway on the OCT Group’s Zhongshan OCT Harbour, a cultural and tourism complex in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, China.

Masterplanned and designed by design architecture practice LWK + Partners, the 300,000m2 recreational destination is located in the west coast of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Scheduled for opening in 2023, the Zhongshan OCT Harbour will comprise a theme park, retail areas, residences, hotel accommodation, entertainment facilities and offices across both sides of the river.

LWK+Partners’ planning and urban design team in Hong Kong office have teamed up with Shenzhen and Chongqing studios to create an urban cultural hub for the community.

In a press statement, LWK+Partners, said: “Concerns for ecological conservation and healthy living are rooted in the project to promote a new urban lifestyle with diverse waterscapes and built spaces in an area undergoing regeneration.

“As the plot spans both sides of the river, LWK + Partners takes full advantage of the waterscape to plan the site based on a ‘One Ring, Two Hearts, Three Belts, Six Zones’ concept.”

The complex will also feature an experiential pedestrian bridge, which will act as the primary circulation route.

The bridge will link the two nodes, which are themed with commercial experience and future technology park, with various public spaces while ensuring seamless spatial transitions throughout the development.

Additionally, Zhongshan OCT Harbour will comprise six zones that are laid out around experiential retail, technological fantasy, eco-friendly Bay Breeze Resort, integrated business and LOHAS residential areas.

The cultural and tourism complex also provides connectivity to the nearby inter-city railway as well as the metro station.
