A neologism used in real estate advertisement in Chinese context. It is read as "hao bu si ka" in Chinese. In general, it refers to large scale mixed-use or complex development in downtown area. Users of this word assume that it is derived in Western context and erroneously deem France's la Défense as the first HOPSCA in the wrold.
