Wenzhou is among the top economic power houses in China’s Zhejiang province, yet despite the influx of wealth, housing quality and retail have not kept pace with the city’s steady growth. The Wenzhou Lucheng Residential Towers and Gardens offer high quality living, shopping, and playing to a growing economically powerful and culturally sophisticated community.
Five high-end residential towers overlook a 20 acre site of gardens, park spaces and a civic plaza along the Ou River. Built entirely on-structure, the modern aesthetic of the grounds offer a respite from the city’s urban sprawl. Multiple swimming pools with dining terraces, an interactive children’s fountain, play grounds, and outdoor living rooms contribute to an outdoor lifestyle that is as friendly to children as their parents and elders. Local materials for the paving and planting palettes and energy-efficient LED lighting are incorporated. Building roofs are planted with a diverse range of foliage to reduce runoff and heat.
