Land Use Plan (estimates)

Land Use Plan

Currently, the key infrastructure has been substantially completed and Fenghuang Lake has finalized its last stages of landscaping. A third of the available land is also currently under construction and the first developments will be launched for sale in 2014, with the first residents and workers moving in 2016.
When completed in five to eight years’ time, the SUA will house some 78,000 people and provide an estimated 38,000 jobs. Residents will have easy access to a good mix of housing, vibrant commercial districts with excellent shopping, and exciting job opportunities in the many high-tech industries, offices, and R&D facilities. Communities will be well served by conveniently located neighbourhood centres and schools, both public and international. Signature landmark buildings, lush greenery, and a 17-hectare scenic lake at the heart of the SUA will help ensure a rich urban landscape for all its inhabitants.

Urban Design Concept for the SUA

A Live, Work, Learn and Play Concept built on a Transport Oriented Development (TOD) model, whereby development intensities around major transportation nodes are highest and whereby land uses like residential, business park, commercial, government, amenities and green are inter-mixed within the SUA.


Planned within the city centre is a Government Administration Centre that is surrounded by a lake, business parks, commercial and residential developments. Away from the city centre, residents will find daily amenities within the five planned neighbourhood centres, schools for their children and jobs within well distributed business parks.


Supporting planned developments is a hierarchy of main-arterial roads and minor roads that follows closely the natural hilly terrain of the SUA. Main-arterial roads connect all land parcels to the metro stations and Jiu Long Avenue, while minor roads within land parcels serve different uses within these parcels.


A green and blue plan comprising large and small parks and water bodies of different sizes enhances the character of the city and improves the living environment by providing well located spatial and visual reliefs and activity nodes where buzz and human activities can events can take place. Connecting these parks and water bodies is a well-planned Slow Movement System that allows residents to walk and cycle to the city centre and to other areas of the SUA.
