A cultural courtyard street is under construction in the Hengqin New Area, Nanfang Daily reports.
The Xiangzhoubu Cultural Courtyards Street, with a total investment of 1.4 billion yuan (about US$200 million), covers 93,000 square meters and will have over 130 courtyards. The street will integrate expositions, leisure, tourism, shopping and food services.
The street resembles the Luodai Ancient Town in Chengdu and hopes to become a leisure and recreation center attracting tourists from Zhuhai City and Macao, said Huang Bingsong, marketing director of the Xiangzhoubu Cultural Courtyards Street project.
The first phase of the construction will be completed within 2017 and will be put into use in 2018. The second phase is now under construction, and is supposed to finish in 2019.
