The Age reports on a masterplan designed by Architektonic which is described as a ‘mini-Melbourne’ located next to an artificial lake outside Tianjin, a sister city to the Victorian capital. According to the article:

“The proposed development would house 20,000 people in an area covering 900,000 square metres – roughly half the size of the Melbourne CBD. Its centrepiece would be a Melbourne-style shopping and cafes hub based on Acland, Brunswick and Lygon streets.”

Architektonic’s Shanghai office was recently opened by Victorian Industry and Trade Minister Jacinta Allan.
