Iconic boulevard serving the town centre as a vibrant public space

Covering an area of 2.6km² within Sutong Science and Industrial Park, the new community is designed to showcase the ultimate experience of urban living and attract a talented workforce to maintain the competitive edge of the region.

Marrying our technical excellence with architecture and urban design, Arup offers a set of new concepts to create a vibrant community that is visually attractive, commercially viable and environmentally sensitive.

Street as the town centre

Inspired by Las Ramblas in Barcelona, an iconic street serves as the town centre of the community providing a mix of retail, entertainment and leisure spaces to attract people to work, live and play.

Surrounding the street is the residential area characterised by small walkable blocks, active street frontages and people scaled building heights.
