Projects: Residential and Commercial Developments

Shinkansen Master Plan
Beijing, China


RGR collaborated with Perkins Eastman to develop a master plan for the Shinkansen Residential Quarter in Beijing, China. Shinkansen is a residential/small retail development for approximately 20,000 residents along the fourth outer ring road in Beijing. Prepared for the Beijing New Field Real Estate Developing Co., the plans have received preliminary approval from the Beijing Planning Commission.

Included in the planning of this extensive residential development are grand public spaces, as well as intimate outdoor areas for residents. External streets are designed as boulevards, buildings are grouped into neighborhoods, and each building includes a common outdoor courtyard and a private patio for each ground floor residence. Promenades link central public parks to each neighborhood. RGR also provided schematic designs for three neighborhood parks and prototypical designs for the outdoor courtyards.
