Recently, it was learned from the Old District Reconstruction Office of Xingning District that the residential area of federation of trade unions in Nanning and Minzu Shopping Mall will be rebuilt into the “New Minzu Shidai Plaza”. The current planning is under review. The construction is expected to commence in the middle of the year and be completed by 2022. In the future, it will be transformed into an urban cultural and commercial complex, which will add to vitality of the city.
According to the current planning, the project includes the south and north blocks. The south block will focus on experience about urban landscape and culture, and include three high-rise tower buildings and two podiums that will function as shopping malls and residential areas. The construction draws inspiration from Longji Rice Terraces and culture of Zhuang nationality to build outdoor terraces of different heights and integrate green belts into the building. The north block will provide public services and include a cultural complex, which include a theater to accommodate five hundred audiences, an exhibition hall and other public places.
