10 DESIGN has been appointed as Lead Design Architect, following an international design competition for this landmark mixed use development in Hengqin.

The Huafa Plaza development amalgamates 3 key development sites within the new Hengqin District in Zhuhai. It will accommodate over 300,000sqm of boutique retail, food and beverage facilities, and office space when built with expected construction completion in 2019.

The winning design consists of 3 high rise towers together with 3 boutique retail and F&B environments.

Gordon Affleck (Design Partner at 10 DESIGN) said, “It is important that the development addresses the waterfront location and the park along the shoreline. So the creation of intimate ground level spaces and garden courtyards in lieu of a traditional mall was key to the success of the masterplan.”

Miriam Auyeung (Partner at 10 DESIGN) claimed, “When Huafa Plaza opens, it will become one of the most dynamic destinations on Hengqin Island, offering vibrant retail environments, waterfront F&B facilities, and office spaces surrounded by green clusters of gardens and terraces.”
