  • Redevelopment of prominent CBD urban location.
  • Integrated development with lifestyle, living, wellness and commercial spaces.
  • Joint venture with University for Chinese Medicines and the developer.

Project objective 

The Zhengzhou Community project involves repurposing a large and prominent university campus and transforming it into an integrated commercial, lifestyle and wellness precinct. The site is the current campus for the Henan University of Chinese Medicine in the heart of the Zhengzhou Central Business District, which is due for relocation to a new campus.

The University is undertaking a Joint Venture with an Australian developer who engaged Life3A to evolve a holistic solution that maximises the health and wellbeing opportunities for residents and brings new life to the CBD location.

Client challenge 

The large and prominent site – 400,000 square metres offered the potential for an innovative solution in a landmark location. It also required meeting the health and wellbeing needs of an older demographic within a CBD environment, providing a high-quality development project for the city.

Life3A solution 

The Life3A concept breathes life and creates community in the heart of Zhengzhou, with an integrated development that includes lifestyle and wellness facilities for the residents, connected to the vibrant CBD setting.  The solution includes 80,000 square metres of riverfront retail, an iconic 50-storey commercial tower, 260,000 square metres of later-living apartments, and a 25,000 square metre state-of-the-art care facility.

Exceptional outcome 

The Master Plan features plazas, boulevards, walkways, key pedestrian connections, and parks, creating an urban village in a bustling CBD, which was unanimously applauded by the full University Board.
