Central Lake Forms Spine for Recreational Living

The Yongtai residential project, located inside the Red Cliff Scenic Area, borders the Dazhang River and consists of a 45-hectare watershed area surrounded by 12 small hills. It is part of an overall development that features a boutique hotel, a shopping street, clubhouses, residential high-rises, townhouses, and detached homes. Here, housing clusters follow the site’s natural topography, with the central lake serving as a public open space that unifies the entire site. Sub-watersheds are designed as neighborhood parks with connections to the central lake area. Hilltops and ridges are incorporated into the neighborhood parks via an extensive trail network to form a larger recreational system.
