Jinji Lake is the centerpiece of the Singapore-China Industrial Development in Suzhou, China. The project combines complex urban design and environmental solutions to create a new community for 600,000 residents and multinational corporate facilities.

Special emphasis was placed on the urban design and architectural interface to establish the image and character of the parks and open space system. AECOM provided a plan that closely integrated the urban environment with the public realm through recreational areas and a land use pattern responsive to the lake.

Plan components include a large ceremonial plaza and mixed-use development adjacent to the central business district and a linear waterfront promenade on the west shore. The south shore features a historic fishing pier, a neighborhood shopping district around a manmade cove, and a Sustainability Education Center with wetland gardens. A series of active neighborhood parks, an arts and entertainment district, an aquarium, outdoor concert pavilion, and display gardens make up the east shore. The north shore is composed of a waterfront park, wetlands, a signature bridge, and a man-made island for resort and water recreation uses.
