Green CBD emerges in Songjiang

Songjiang New Town EBD is taking shape in G60 Sci-Tech Corridor and will be partially open in 2020.

The ecological business district has a land area of 4.14 square kilometers and will have office blocks, hotels, exhibition facilities and residential buildings. Commercial properties will total 1.8 million square meters while residential properties will total 1.68 million square meters.

The EBD layout features a business circle and two axils that link up Sheshan National Forest Park, Guangfulin Archaeological Park, University Town and Songjiang Development Zone. Wanda Plaza, a mall complex in the first-phase project, has been built. Greenland Plaza, a second-phase project, is now under construction.

The EBD is designed like a “sponge city” with rain storage and irrigation systems to prevent flash flooding caused by big downpours.

Banks, schools, hospitals and other service companies will move to the EBD. A health service center with 120 beds will be put to use in July. Tram lines of T2 and T4 will open in the district and a smart parking system will make life convenient for drivers.
