Chongli Thaiwoo Four-Season Resort

Zehren and Associates and Ecosign Planning collaborated on the Chongli Thaiwoo Four-Season Resort.   Chongli Thaiwoo Four-Season Resort is located approximately 2 hours west of Beijing, near the city of Chongli, which was only recently connected to Beijing via a high-speed road, and is now being connected via high-speed rail.  The resort is located about 20 minutes from Chongli, and occupies land originally used for cabbage farming and livestock.  The new ski runs for the resort come within several meters of the “great wall” – not the wall famed for its height and length, but rather an older stone wall about a meter high that runs for thousands of kilometers, originally used to pen livestock and keep trespassers out.

The resort’s proximity to Beijing and its connection to a major metropolitan area via highway and rail combine to attract thousands of skiers and guests throughout the year…for winter recreation during the cold months and to escape the city heat in the summer months.  The master plan for Chongli Thaiwoo was designed by Ecosign, while the resort buildings and pedestrian street were designed by Zehren and Associates.  At complete build-out the buildings designed by Zehren will totaled over 125,000 square meters and included the following:

  • A five-star hotel…the Hyatt Regency
  • A skier base lodge/ restaurant
  • A four-star hotel (self-operated)
  • A four star hotel…the Starwood Element
  • A four-star hotel…the Hyatt Place
  • A condominium with resort spa
  • A gondola building
  • Retail spaces within the hotels and lodge
  • A cinema and karaoke within one of the hotels
