Based on smart planning and design principles, the masterplan will set the standards for sustainable development in China and provide a home to over 1 million residents.
The masterplan is designed around a series of self-sustaining urban villages with quality places of work, housing, retail, leisure and community uses.
These communities will be connected by an advanced public transport system into the wider Nanjing Metro network. This is a beautiful new public park for the town located on the site of the old airport runway. It has been designed as an active ‘green lung’, bringing together the surrounding communities and bringing fresh and air and wellbeing to the city’s residents.
The park will become the centre of life for the new city and the playground for Nanjing South New town. It will include a range of leisure experiences ranging from the active to passive, including a skateboard park, quiet seating areas among the wetlands and retail with cafes and restaurants areas.
