A system of watercourses has been introduced to purify the seawater that infiltrates the area through the dykes. Various kinds of vegetation are matched to differences of water salinity, orientation, slope and soil. This results in a range of different landscape types, while the existing landscape is preserved as far as possible. These types form the basis for all new developments.

image 1 There are two main urban centres: the ‘City of Crane’, a residential area in the north, and the ‘Yangtze River Cultural Plaza’, a recreational centre on the southern point. The Eco-Forest Parkway provides a direct link between these centres. A water bus running on electricity and solar energy ferries back and forth, and the boulevard connects the villa districts and landscape strips.
