A land promotion conference of building Zhoushan Islands New Area into an islands garden city was held on April 24th at Zhujiajian Island, which was attended and favored by about one hundred housing enterprises inside and outside Zhoushan.
At the meeting, the housing enterprises were learned about the development planning and investment environment of Zhoushan, the land market and major lands to be transferred, while the Real Estate Research Institute of Zhejiang Daily Media Group issued City Value Report of Zhoushan.
The report details and evaluates the traffic conditions, economic development, ecological climate, urban service facilities and real estate market development of Zhoushan. The report believes that Zhoushan is becoming a hot investment place for the whole country and even the whole world, and calls Zhoushan an "original stock" with great potential for development in China. Ding Jiangang, president of the institute, said that Zhoushan's development opportunities and value for investment will strongly burst out in the next few years.
According to statistics, the investment in Zhoushan’s real estate market reached 20.943 billion RMB last year, an increase of 21.8% over the previous year. The sales area of commercial housing in the city last year was 218.34 million square meters, an increase of 43.1%. Zhoushan plans to supply commercial land with total area of 288.34 million square meters, of which the commercial residential land is 138.27 million square meters, mainly located in the four regions of Dinghai, Putuo, Daishan and Xincheng.
Zhoushan is moving forward toward the goal of building it into an "islands garden city". According to plans, by 2021, Zhoushan will complete the building of one botanical park and fifty parks, and more than 25% of the built-up area will reach standards of “sponge city”. By 2030, Zhoushan will be built into a green city with ecological harmony, a shared city of people oriented and an open and inclusive city.
