In August, construction commenced on Dongguan Jewelry Park, located Guangdong Province, China. This multi-phase mixed use project designed by GreenbergFarrow will encompass 30 buildings covering a site of approximately 40 acres. The master plan includes 5,800,000 square feet of above grade construction. The program includes factory buildings, office towers, hotel, residential, retail, museum, and conference center.  

The challenge for such a vast site with multiple program types was to give the project a sense of unity. The vertical elements of the towers are brought together with the horizontal elements through a network of connecting plazas, bridges, and terraces. GreenbergFarrow organized the massing of the site and the architectural language of the buildings to be understood as one entity while allowing the functions of each component to be clear to potential users through a developed hierarchy of forms and materials.
