Today we saw the preservation of Lingnan culture in Foshan, in these 5,000 performers. And we also appreciate the traditional culture and family culture of China, which has already spread for thousand years on this land," Southern China General Manager of Sun Hung Kai Development (China) Ltd., Echo Huang said during the event. "In SHKP's opinions, every piece of land has its unique vitality; every city has its own culture and charm. Today, we take our 'Building Homes with Heart' concept to Foshan, on the 'National Fitness Day', hoping to attract more people to join us, to become interested in Lingnan culture, and even to promote the Lingnan culture. We respect the culture of Foshan, hoping to build the new Foshan together with people of Foshan, to create an international homeland along with traditional Lingnan Culture." The project of the Oriental Bund developed by SHKP is located in Lanshi, Foshan, and the first phase of the project will be available and have a grand debut at the end of this year. Paying close attention to the city's comprehensive development, the cultural heritage and potential mining, SHKP will designate a seasoned project team from Hong Kong for the planning, design and construction. It will take long-term construction up to 15 years to build the Foshan Lanshi Project into a complex of "world-class shopping centers, super five-star hotels, high quality Grade-A office spaces and residential properties". This super-size integrated project will build together with SHKP and the Foshan people. Echo Huang said: "With SHKP's rich experiences of large integrated projects, we hope that we could build a proud landmark for Foshan, and bring a more international living experience to Foshan people." Foshan is one of birthplaces of China Southern martial arts. In recent years, many outstanding films and TV shows with the theme of Wing Chun have been produced and used the Wing Chun master Mr. Ye Wen as a prototype. All these made Wing Chun famous worldwide and drew interest in Wing Chun culture, and even in Lingnan culture. "As one of the birthplaces of Lingnan culture, Foshan now is known as one of the most successful areas of Lingnan Culture Conservation. With fast industrial upgrading and urban transformation, nowadays protection and inheritance of Lingnan culture get lots of concern from the community. In the development and heritage, Foshan need to find the right footing," Mr. Deng Chan Rong, the Vice-Secretary of Foshan, said of the activity. "We are very pleased to see such enterprises with a global vision, like SHKP, to enter Foshan. While respecting the local culture, they also bring in the world's leading construction concepts. With its rich development experience, they can work with us together to find the connotation of Foshan, and to create a new international city of Foshan." SOURCE Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd.
