Xiamen Jimei New Urban City Project
Xiamen Jimei New Urban City Jimei New Urban City is a suburb of Xiamen, one of China’s important port cities. The proposed project creates a new suburban city surrounded by lakes and hills. The city is divided into three zones: (i) a commercial and business zone highlighted with a variety of beautiful water landscapes (ii) a residential zone in the hills enveloped in a rich green environment (iii) a leisure zone located between the other two consisting of a network of canals, which evoke a sense of history and culture Green Islands Initially, large land reclamation was planned for the new urban city. However, land reclamation does not necessarily create land value. Instead, many “Green Islands` are reclaimed around the project’s periphery, creating a variety of water environments which adds value and creates a cool-earth. The project fuses high quality of life, housing near the workplace, great landscapes and an environment surrounded by a lake. Walkable City Gulangyu Island is an old foreign settlement in Xiamen, which serves as a symbol of the local people’s history and culture. The island is filled with nature, lacks cars and motorbikes, and is easy to walk through. It is truly an advanced urban city of the future. The design of Xiamen Jimei New Urban city was inspired by Gulangyu Island. At the waterfront, underground roads and parking lots are used in order to create a walkable city 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Public transportation and walking allow pedestrians freedom to move and is very suitable for the “new Gulangyu Island.`
