The land is used for commercial service industry, and the regulatory plan requires a floor area ratio of 5-7 and a building height of 100-150 meters. The total construction area is about 110,000 square meters (with an above-ground construction area of 86,000 square meters), including 500 square meters of a municipal logistics center and 1,500 square meters of a public transportation hub.
Plot 2: The planned area is about 1,242 square meters, and the plot is almost in a rectangle shape. It is used for green space and squares of urban parks.
Plot 3: The planned area is about 15,988 square meters, and the plot used is almost in a trapezoid shape, with a length of about 105 meters from south to north, 134 meters on the north side, and 185 meters on the south side. The land is used for commercial service industry, and the regulatory plan requires a floor area ratio of 2.5-5 and a building height of 45-100 meters. The total construction area is about 120,000 square meters (with an above-ground construction area of 90,000 square meters).
Plot 4: The planned area is approximately 22,150 square meters, and the plot used is almost in a trapezoid shape, with a length of about 105 meters from south to north, 185 meters on the north side, and 225 meters along the east-west axis on the south side.
