NINGBO COASTAL NEW TOWN, Ningbo, China
The site in Ningbo forms the third corner of a regional market area with the cities of Hangzhou and Shanghai. The planning philosophy is to blend market demand and “place” factors to create a platform for trade, maritime uses, environment and a unique place to live and work. Through cooperation between local and national government, the Ningbo Meishan Free Trade Zone was created to incentivize the development of the free trade port and coastal new town master plan.
