The Yongqing international clothing city, designed by the team of WVA Architects, aims to create a whole industry chain model equipped with high-quality human resource and multi-functional service, perfect infrastructure, and convenient traffic system, thus further promote the regional clothing Industry.

The project is situated in the middle of Langfang city, which is located at the centre of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei (biggest urbanized region in Northern China), and also belongs to the heart of Circum-Bohai Sea Economic Zone. This perfect location offers a great flow of people and goods, thus support the development of the city and additionally acts a “radiation” effect to the north-south axis.

The city is arranged as a leaf, consists of one transversal and three lengthwise leaf veins. Financial core area run transversely through the city, connecting the JT and TL Highway; shopping and Expo districts established along the JT Highway set a landmark that attracts clients and expands brand influence; While the logistic harbor and enterprise headquarter install along the south-north axis, forest park is closely aligned with residential, improving the urban livability. Each part weaves a sustainable “green leaf city”.
