First phase functional zoning map of Wenhan Lake International Science and Technology Town core area in Sanlongwan
On May 21, Foshan Sanlongwan Innovation Cluster, Nanhai area, (hereinafter referred to as "Sanlongwan Nanhai") held a press conference in Nanshan, Shenzhen to announce the core area plan of Wenhan Lake International Science and Technology Innovation Town (hereinafter referred to as WLISTIT) in Sanlongwan for the first time.
To build the core of Guangzhou-Foshan Science and Technology City
The WLISTIT is located in the core area of Sanlongwan Nanhai at the junction of Guangzhou and Foshan. The first phase of the core area is about 2 square kilometers, and the development is positioned as "a new technology brain, economic engine and a city model."
At the conference site, the first phase of the core zone planning program was officially unveiled. The area is equipped with the "strongest brain" Jihua Laboratory, the planned landmark "Eye of Guangzhou and Foshan" and multi-layered three-dimensional mutually beneficial sharing of Science and Technology Space-International Science and Technology Community and other industrial carriers; also designed with the sunken riverfront roads, technology and art squares, high-standard living areas, super subway TOD and other urban facilities.
"We will build the WLISTIT as the priority work." Pan Shi, member of the Party Working Committee of Foshan Sino-German Industrial Services Zone (Sanlongwan), director of Sanlongwan Nanhai Construction Bureau, and deputy head of Nanhai District, revealed that Sanlongwan Nanhai will strive to finalize key projects in the core area within one year, implement the transfer of land parcels, and start the construction of the entire WLISTIT next year. It will take shape in the third year, form a cluster within five years, and build the most important innovation node of Guangzhou-Foshan within ten years. And it will be the source of new technology and economy.
Accelerated with the "one axis, one belt, three poles" industrial layout
In 2018, the CPC Foshan Municipal Committee and Municipal Government proposed to mobilize the whole city to build Sanlongwan, actively participating in the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and connecting with the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Macao Technology Innovation Corridor. Structurally speaking, Sanlongwan Nanhai has the longest border with Guangzhou, and relies on Guangzhou South Railway Station to form a Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Macao one-hour living circle , which seizes favorable opportunity in the resource element flow.
From the area-city perspective, Sanlongwan is to Foshan, just as Nansha is to Guangzhou, Qianhai is to Shenzhen, Hengqin is to Zhuhai, and Binhaiwan is to Dongguan.
At present, Sanlongwan Naihai has confirmed the industrial space layout of “one axis, one belt, three poles”, built the central axis of Guangzhou-Foshan Science and Technology around the three major sectors of Wenhan Lake, Linyuenan, and Sanshan North, and took Sanlongwan Avenue as the main development corridor, build a 4.02-square-kilometer village-level industrial park along the route into an intelligent manufacturing belt.
On the basis of the core area construction, the WLISTIT will also promote the complete layout of the whole area of 5 square kilometers through the transformation of Pingzhou Industrial Park, and build a high-end ecosystem of new economy and technology. The Wenhan Lake area where the WLISTIT is located will serve as the “innovation-leading pole” of “one axis, one belt, three poles”, and will strive to become the highest place and main engine of Guangzhou and Foshan’s new economy and new technology, the first urban living room in Foshan facing the Greater Bay Area, the bond between Guangzhou and Foshan and the extreme point of the Greater Bay Area's integration.
