The idea of “galaxy“ is used as the planning concept. The integration of high-density and low-density urban distribution is represented in the form of “green bell“, which will develop into an intensified cluster mode. The urban core functions will be centered in Mulan Bay area and the overall planning layout will be one center, three axes and multi-districts. Whereas the Inner harbor is mainly designed for leisure activities the outer harbor will be used for logistics, which will bring the marine industry close to the urban life.
The independent blue technology town is located at the west side of the site next to the core area. The Blue Life Resort, waterfront residential area and the ecological resort will be used for leisure and beach holiday tourism.
Nanyang cultural town and the Puqian old town will become a characteristic tourist attraction. The Puqian new town will be used as a backup region for the long-term development of the city.
Mulan Bay planning will undertake the history and help creating a better future for the area. It will help building a low-carbon economy and maintain a sustainable balance for the area.
