Foster Conant selected for project in China

ORLANDO, FL— Orlando, Fla.-based Foster Conant & Associates was selected by a California entertainment group to provide site planning and landscape architectural design services for a city master planning effort in Fushun, China.

 Known as Shenfu New Town, the live work and play community in its entirety includes high-rise office and residential buildings, a cultural center, government facilities, an entertainment district, hotel and a 20,000-seat arena. Foster Conant is engaged to design a section of the city named Discovery Lake District, a 10-block-by-10-block site with a central lake as its focal point.

The Orlando, Fla., office of AECOM (NYSE:ACM), a global leader in technical and management support, has been engaged by Foster Conant to assist with some of the planning tasks associated with the project.

According to Foster Conant Principal Richard R. Conant, (top right photo) FASLA, construction on Discovery Lake District will begin sometime later this year.
