Analysis of highlights
"In line with the development trend, the starting area will turn into a living-friendly and industry-friendly place, by integrating nature into its backdrop, and encouraging industrial innovation. A most beautiful new town should be set up with an international vision." Such are the hopes that AREP Group harbors for the future city.
The 300-meter-tall Shenjiaji Riverview Tower will serve as a landmark to showcase the new image of Changjiang New Town. The urban design of Shenjiaji, along with the future development projects, will establish a skyline with its own characteristics.
The section of Wuhan-Yingshan Expressway in the starting area will be demolished and rebuilt in order to construct a pleasant network of walkways.
The Xinhe Bridge and some of its ramps will be integrated into a park where elevated landscape corridors connect the areas of Shenjiaji and Wuhu.
Convenient public transport system
The starting area will meet the future development of multiple transportation systems.
In the layout, spaces are reserved for low-altitude general aviation such as commercial helicopters and drones.
To meet the smart city's requirements, the starting area will serve as a pilot demonstration area for unmanned driving. As for the waterway, ferry wharves will enable ships to traverse the Fuhe and Yangtze rivers. The two main metro transfer stations of Shenjiaji and Wuhu will offer a seamless transfer system both above and below ground. There will also be bus stops every 500 meters across the starting area.
