Redefining the GBA’s Industrial Network and Spatial Distribution

June 17, 2021

We are expanding upon our GBA growth framework by examining not only cities, but also industries. This report turns to well-established urban planning concepts such as concentric zones and linear spatial models. We examine spatial patterns of urban development and analyze the GBA’s future industrial network from several perspectives, such as industrial clusters, industrial belts and industrial nodes.

We explore several key concepts: the birth of the inner ring of the GBA, multi-centric growth in the core areas, and interactions between industries. Furthermore, we also discuss how industrial nodes have great potential for the future.
