The goal of the master plan was to create a development along a 26-square kilometer area in the center of the city that is situated on both sides of the 15-kilometer long, ancient Yellow River front.  The planning strategy focused on creating a series of distinct districts connected by pedestrian oriented parks and walkways as well as convenient mass transit such as water taxis and electric buses.  All spaces are focused on connecting the river with the community as a whole.

The districts of agriculture, industry, education, regional sports, central business, culture and entertainment, eco-park, and natural habitat areas are planned with a mix of uses including residential and commercial to form a diversity of connected “neighborhoods”.

Bringing people back to the water is the central idea. It was important to accommodate public use of the river front and to create a series of activities and parks along the riverbanks to enliven the area.
