Construction underway on Benoy's Lan Kwai Fong Wuxi scheme in Jiangsu Province

A groundbreaking ceremony was held this week in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province in China for a major new arts, dining, cultural and retail complex designed by Benoy.

Lan Kwai Fong Wuxi is one of two schemes in China currently in development by Benoy for the Lan Kwai Fong Group; the second is the Wuxi TAIHU Cultural District. Lan Kwai Fong Wuxi blends both modern and traditional design elements for a highly memorable aesthetic that remains sensitive to the project location.

Dr Allan Zeman of Lan Kwai Fong Group comments: “Wuxi is the most beautiful secret of China for its stunning natural scenery and living environment. The modern architecture, spectacular dining atmosphere and year-round events and parties will definitely bring the Lan Kwai Fong style of energy and fun to the pearl of Taihu Lake.”

More details and images of the scheme can be found here.
