The Golden Lighthouse Resort takes advantage of the well-known coastal recreation area east of Beijing that is also a famous retreat for senior government officials. EDG provided an analysis, master plan, program, and business strategy to develop an unspoiled 250-hectare beach site into a year-round tourist destination. Careful consideration was given to protecting a series of existing dunes that afforded the opportunity to zone the site allowing upland protected areas for more intensive development. By bringing water into the site, EDG created at the heart of the project a venue for year-round water-related activities, location of the iconic “Golden Lighthouse” viewing tower to be seen for miles. The overall master plan and business plan includes phased strategies for 3 themed hotels, a retail entertainment zone and conservatory, spa and wellness center, outdoor concert facility, conference center, branded theme park and indoor water park , eco-tourism facilities, timeshare and related real estate offerings, all related to the local business and culture.
