The local plot is located in the “Pearl River New Town Project” in the east of Wenjiang District, Chengdu. There are 14 high-rise office buildings, 10 2-3 floors commercial pedestrian streets and 1-2 floors podiums along the street. The facade style of the building adopts post-modern treatment methods, the overall scale is neat and atmospheric, and the overall sense is strong.

Integrate multiple transportation systems to create a three-dimensional city;strengthen the construction of open blocks, provide diverse living experiences for different groups of people, and create a healthy and livable lifestyle in open spaces, waterfront parks, and art courtyards.

As an important planning feature of the central dynamic district, the open block block design is emphasized here. The entire plot is pedestrian-friendly in all directions, and multiple pedestrian access openings on the ground floor facilitate the smooth entry of surrounding residents. The second-floor pedestrian corridor system connects the Pearl River Square in Area A with the characteristic commercial blocks and cultural squares in Block B, ensuring a safer and more efficient pedestrian network outside the mixed pedestrian and vehicle area on the ground floor.
