Fatou District Master Plan

Beijing, China
Perkins Eastman developed a framework plan for a 1,560-hectare (3,855-acre) new district for 350,000 residents on the eastern edge of Beijing within Zhongguancun, China's Silicon Valley. This new district, named the Fatou Functional Zone, has been designed to support a cluster of research and development and technology-oriented businesses.

Bisected by the Fifth Ring Road and bounded on the north by a high-traffic highway, Fatou is ideally positioned to become a dominant district in Beijing's continued expansion, with easy linkages to the adjacent industrial centers and Beijing's Central Business District. Totaling 4.9M sm (53M sf), the zones comprise a variety of functions including business, research and development, residential, cultural hubs, and commerce.

Upon completion, the Fatou District will include a total of 2.3M sm (19.4M sf) of retail, dining, and entertainment; 651,000 sm (7M sf) of hospitality, culture, and convention space; 400,000 sm (4.3M sf) of healthcare; and 102,000 sm (1.1 sf) of public and civic space. From the high-tech corporate zones along the northern and eastern peripheries to entertainment and restaurant districts to the surrounding parks, Fatou will form a vibrant and dynamic eastern gateway to central Beijing.
