We’re thrilled to see the project pick up another prestigious honour after being rated as one of the ‘Most Important Projects’ by the Shenzhen government in 2016 and its approval by the Shenzhen Planning Bureau in 2019.
Central to the rejuvenation of a river park area running through the site, this project was developed following principles of community, sustainability, infrastructural connectivity, retail experience, and modern lifestyle, applied to the local characteristics of Shenzhen. This is the first step to regenerate Longgang district not just for this site, but the whole of Shenzhen East.
Rebranded as Hazens Fangzhou Ark in late August 2021, the project has been successfully launched to the public, joining with China Resources MIXC Lifestyle for the property management. This marks a significant step of the master planning turning into reality and soon to become a Super Future Town in east Shenzhen.

From fishing village to global innovation hub, Shenzhen exemplifies the success story of China’s opening-up to the world. Now at the core of the Greater Bay Area plan, the city will continue its positive impact with strong economic growth, industrialization, and urbanization. Woods Bagot is proud to be part of this process with our Shenzhen leadership group – as well as our clients and local partners – and happy to provide best in class services across master planning, architecture, interior and branding apart from existing completed projects such as Vanke Timemark Shenzhen, Qianhai International Financial Center, and under construction ones such as Shimao SIC, Shenzhen Sunshine Insurance Headquarters, Chengjian Meiyuan Urban Regeneration etc.
