The showcase in Changsha will use the Futiancangjun (formerly named Hemeixingcheng) project. The project is approved by the Development and Reform Bureau of Changsha and is located in the Green Controlling Area of the city. It covers an area of 320 000 m2 with a total construction area of 740 000 m2. It consists of schools (kindergarten, primary school and junior school), apartments, mountain park and commercial buildings. Changsha, is the capital of Hunan province one of the most densely populated provinces in China. As such, it faces an enormous environmental challenge regarding food supply with long transport distance. UA will ameliorate the situation by producing food locally in an environmentally friendly manner with zero transport required. The target of the project is to go beyond traditional farming, highlighting green ecology, leisure environment and quality of life.
