Zaha Hadid Architects and TPO Pride Architects have been selected to be part of the consortia that will develop a site of more than 460 hectares, to include new homes for 66,500 residents as well as schools, medical clinics, transport infrastructure, shopping districts and new civic and cultural institutions.
