Zhengzhou Urban Airport Landscape

Airport – Brainport – Greenport in China


Royal HaskoningDHV developed an economic growth model for the Airport City. The airport city has been divided in 3 interrelated clusters, each having its own economic driver.


In the central part of the airport city is the airport cluster, which includes all functions that are directly dependent or related to the presence of a large airport. The northern part of the airport city is the ‘brainport’, is a high quality environment with a mixture of urban functions like research and development campuses, high end housing, leisure and wellness and retail. The southern part of the experimental zone is named ‘greenport’, some modern, efficient clusters of agricultural businesses that drastically increase the economic output of an agricultural area.
