Yangon New City
We have planned a new future for Yangon and Myanmar. A new green smart city in front on the old city center of Yangon and o the other side of Yangon river.
Yangon, with a population of over four million, continues to be the country’s largest city and the most important commercial center.
The site is divided in two areas: for a total of 3750 HA. The city center and the new CBD for a total surface of 1650 Ha, strategically located in the southern area of Yangon, in the future will be more and more connected in the urban region to from a network of cities. A new eco industrial area for a total surface of 2090 HA and a new container and cruise port that will support the economy of the city and the region.
Yangon new city is designed for 500,000 people. As the site area is mainly agricultural, the master plan develop a resettlement strategy for those inhabitants living in the area, for a total of 35,000 people.
The city will be connected to the existing CBD of Yangon by an highway bridge and by a tunnel. The design is based on the principle to connect the city with its waterscape environment. The river is an extraordinary opportunity to connect existing ponds and canals into an integrated and ecological system, offering also means for alternative public transportation.
