Planning of Haicang Xinyang West Industry District

  Xinyang West Industry District locates in the northeast of Haicang Taiwan investors’ District, connecting Yingxia railroad in the north and Cai Jianwei Mountain in the south. It faces Maluan Bay to the east and connects Xiamen’s First Farm in the west. The total planning area is approximately 17.6 square kilometers. This district is surrounded by mountains in two sides and faces the sea in another side. The general land feature is high in the west, south and north, and low in the east; the whole topography is higher in the northwest and lower in the southeast, with the slope tilting from the northwest to the southeast. Xinyang West Industry District is a comprehensive industry district focusing on both the industry and dwelling, and is used as the spare land for the strategic development of Haicang Taiwan Investors’ District. The total land area is approximately 17.6 square kilometers. The planning population is 170,000. The land is narrow in the east and the west, wide in the north and the south, forming an irregular rectangle. The road network of this planning is mainly square grid. The land utilization is the industry and storage land in the west and south, and the dwelling and public facilities land in the north, middle and east. 
    The main principle of the construction is:
     (1) to rely on the existing facilities and start with the easy and then finish the difficult, aiming to reduce the investment risks;
     (2) to develop the industry first and later improve the living and public supporting facilities. The land for industry is comparatively centralized, locating on in the northern and southern sides of Wengjiao Road. It is the most desirable land area within the district, where the land is vast and high, and it involves less removing and relocation. The Industry District introduces mostly the first type industry projects with no or little pollution, thus the employment is concentrated. In order to reduce the pressure of and build vigorous and colorful communities, some comprehensive service districts are also planned to provide direct service for the enterprises in the district, which in return benefits development and construction of the Industry District.


  The planning was completed in September, 1999. The planning was put forward byXiamen Branch Institute of China’s Institute of Urban Planning and Design.
