The Green Axis is one kilometer long and has a total area of about 11.9 hectares. The design is based on the concept of “the growing tree of life”, which creates “the vein of growth and integration” that creates an urban green corridor linking the old and new urban areas of the city. Reflecting on the environmental issues brought about by urbanization, the Central Green Axis was built as an urban green lung to help reduce carbon emissions. Shaded by abundant trees, it provides activity spaces which meet the demands of residents and provide an interface for future regional development.
