Site: 803 square kilometers
Located at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta, the 803 square kilometer Nansha design area sits between Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou’s city center. Designed as a planned eco-city, the Nansha project will transform this port zone into a sustainably responsible city that provides a new model for creating large-scale ecological urban development. The new Nansha eco-city will be home to a new administrative center, growing tourist industry, high-tech research and development facilities and an international cruise port, all linked through multiple means of transportation that create both local and regional connections through rail, ferry and air travel.
Ecologically advanced development in Nansha is accomplished through implementing sustainable strategies on multiple scales, from individual buildings to regional land planning. The highlights of this approach are found in areas of preserved wetlands, a new eco-demonstration island, and a modern port that uses the latest technologies to reduce its carbon footprint. This approach presents a new way to create eco-cities, away from the single developer model, towards an integrated development that will grow sustainably over time.
