Baqiao District Housing

Leo A Daly is providing master planning services, conceptual residential building design, and schematic design for a 435-hectare (1075 acres) site. The project plans high-density housing development alongside the Ba River in the historic city of Xi’an. The client’s intent is to develop this prime piece of real estate into a modern residential campus with a variety of housing options, ranging from high-rise to low-rise garden style buildings. Program requirements called for over 620,000 SM of residential and 30,000 SM of complimentary public/commercial support space. The scope of design service for this project included a master site plan for the entire campus and schematic designs for each of the proposed buildings. The design solution emphasizes maximizing view potentials, natural daylighting, and pedestrian friendly landscaping to provide a park-like setting to enhance the living environment for a large contemporary urban neighborhood.
