During the past decade, growth that could not be absorbed byGuiyang, China the Old City led to development of a nearby ‘twin city’, thereby gradually altering the functions and status of the Old City.

This855 hectares led to the discovery that the Guancheng River, a tributary to the Nanming River, had been covered by other uses. Restoring22 million square meters of development this river, introducing three new transit corridors, and deciding to retain existing road alignments became some of the primaryexpanded to 29 million square meters strategies used to develop the design framework that underpins the LRDP .FAR: Varies, favoring TOD Density has been raised by 30%, with a significant portion of this being in TOD nodes and along transit corridors. In most ofClient: the 56 tracts the existing balance of land uses is maintained in order to retain social and historic essence, open space andZhongtian Development Company the public realm has been enhanced, and carefully inserted new roads and pedestrian links reduce block sizes and improved accessibility.
