Tian Yi: Masterplan with optimum housing location


In wetlands on the outskirts of the city of Wuxi in eastern China, the new Tian Yi neighbourhood is seeing the light of day.

With the focus on sustainability, Tian Yi will be an independent and compact mixed neighbourhood with homes and businesses, allowing residents to fulfil all their needs locally. The area is part of a larger master plan for the 2 kmĀ² big area.

The Fountain Avenue project offers anyone interested the opportunity to be a part of the new old neighborhood (neotraditional) renaissance.
