A vast city area named Wuxiang New District has been taking shape in Nanning, the capital of South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, with high-rise office buildings, beautiful structures for sports and culture events, parks, traffic network and increasing investment.
The construction plan was initiated in 2006 by Guangxi government to promote the development of Nanning city and the whole autonomous region. It aims to "create a new Nanning" since the planned construction area of 200 square kilometers is even larger than the city's urban area at that time.
Covering an area of around 200 square kilometers on the south side of the Yong river, a tributary of the Pearl River through which traverses the Nanning city, the new district consists of six major sections with different functions.
