Lingshui Water Town
Located in Lingshui, Hainan Province, China, the Lingshui Water Town project is part of the Hainan Lingshui Experimental District. The project creates a diverse world-class international tourism attraction and establishes a model for future economic development for the region. EDSA’s services have included conceptual planning for the overall area and urban design for key areas.
Throughout the visioning and open space planning efforts, the concept for the Water Town area focused on four primary components; the Venice-style waterfront commercial area, the iconic canal gateway, the dynamic mixed-use harbor, and the charming artist village. EDSA has collaborated with the the client group in efforts to stimulate growth and development of the local economy, redefine the overall life-style and drive long-term visioning of the Water Town community to meet the demands of all stakeholders.
