The project is an important commercial scene of Yuli New Town, which is the second batch of provincial pilot projects of future community in Zhejiang Province. WEAVE BLOCK, jointly developed by Vanke Group and Yuxin Town Government, is promoted by the mode of local reconstruction and new development of the old town. It is committed to weaving future science and technology with Yuli traditional culture, organically combining community construction with town development and high-speed railway new town construction, creating an ideal model unit of the future community and the modern basic unit of common prosperity.



The community commercials demonstration area occupies about 360m², and a 7,000m² commercial water street will be built along both sides of the Sixian Bridge to bring diversified catering facilities, exquisite life experience hall and cultural scenes to the future community. The demonstration area consists of three retails, which are connected by a cantilevered roof and a connecting corridor. The separate design prototype of the pitched roof and gable wall is inspired by the old houses in Yuxin Town. At the initial stage, design team visits Yuxin Town many times to research and explore the local architectural characteristics and cultural temperament in depth, and finally decide to adopt delicate facade techniques and innovative structural forms to achieve people-friendly block experience. The scale of the building and its massive glass facade are not the most impressive elements of the design, it hopes to feel the improvement of life under the premise of restoring the life scenes in Jiangnan.



WEAVE BLOCK creates a new commercial street for Jiaxing City, and it also become the starting point of the whole future community construction process. The project spans over the bridge port and the total length of about 680m, so as to inherit the spirit of Jiangnan water town and create numerous small-scale space nodes and exquisite landscape elements, which are integrated with the commercial street. Together with the concept of living near the water, the environment gives WEAVE BLOCK a unique temperament different from other commercial streets.
