A world-class integrated resort is being planned near New Tashkent City, part of Uzbekistan’s capital city
It will feature unique water attractions, a themed hotel, immersive dining and live entertainment
US-based design firm Legacy Entertainment has been appointed to design and build the resort's water park, which will anchor the project
New Tashkent City will house two million people and cover 20,000ha once complete
A world-scale, integrated resort is being planned for Tashkent, Uzbekistan’s capital city.

Feature unique water attractions, a themed hotel, immersive dining, and live entertainment, the development will be located close to urban regeneration district, New Tashkent City and is being designed with both local and international audiences in mind.

US-based design firm Legacy Entertainment has been appointed to design and build the resort's waterpark, which will anchor the project. No name has yet been announced for the attraction.

A formal ceremony announcing the development was held in Tashkent earlier this month (July 2023).

Eric Carnagey, Legacy Entertainment’s co-founder and chief business development officer, said: "World-class entertainment projects such as this can be transformational for a community.

"Once complete, this new resort will supercharge tourism, create hundreds or even thousands of jobs, and enrich the lives of the people of Tashkent and Uzbekistan, as well as Central Asia.”

New Tashkent City will see parts of the old city demolished to house more than two million people over 20,000ha. The city will be designed as a ‘twin’ to the existing capital to ‘revitalise’ the region.

On March 18, the president of Uzbekistan formally launched the first phase of construction which will house a million people on 6,000ha. He also revealed that masterplans had been completed up to 2045 by Arup.

The city will have a number of ​centres, including a new government administrative district, a central business district, an island development sitting between ​old and ​new, a trade district and an airport district. There will also be a congress centre and 5-star hotel.

At the junction of the old and new, will sit New Tashkent Island, a new waterfront destination featuring riverside boardwalks, housing, F&B, retail, leisure and entertainment.

Each neighbourhood will have its own social infrastructure, green space and public art, as well as community amenities, including healthcare, education, administrative uses, leisure and retail.

The city will also have a green space network to improve the health and wellbeing of the population and contribute to environmental sustainability.
