Heat Up
Logistics is the heartbeat of economic activity. Opened shipping containers become exhibitions and create entertainment. The entertainment of the urban city heats people up and fills them with joy.

Cool Earth
Heated-up people need healing which is provided by greenery and water. This greenery and water achieves a Cool Earth. With a great location along the Yangtze River, a new canal network using water from the Yangtze is used in district heating cooling, which adopts a renewable energy technology, and creates an advanced low carbon emission city. The canal network circulates water using a different water level than the Yangtze, which improves the water quality and preserving resources.

Fusion
Fusions of “heat and cool”, “race, generation, and hierarchy”, and “urban city and industry” will lead to future growth in both business and industry leading to the city’s name as “the incubation city.”

Post-zoning
Instead of using the conventional zoning model, a method of mixed land use, “post-zoning model” is used to maximize the benefits of greenery and water on the environment. Through careful planning, the environment and landscape utilize water and greenery effectively to realize a city which people will be attracted to and thereby create a powerful urban core.

Core & Ring
The arrangement of a “Green Core”, a “Grand Canal”, and a “Boulevard Ring” creates the main framework of the urban city. This framework connects urban function organically and promotes the exchange of people, business, and cultures.
