“Think this can’t happen here? Take a look around you at all of the high density housing going up in close proximity to one another. Couple that with CBDC and voila you have submitted to authority and given away your God given freedoms,” Ann Vandersteel commented.

Take a look around you at all of the high density housing going up in close proximity to one another.
Couple that with CBDC and voila you have submitted to authority and given away your God given freedoms.
“This is the model for all the Dem led intentionally destroyed US major metropolitan areas! High density high rises with up to 30k households per development 15 minute smart cities via private corp /Govt fascist style partnerships,” Tom Moore noted.

On May 10, Xi, also the general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, inspected Xiong’an and presided over a meeting on promoting its development. The transformation of the Xiong’an New Area from ground zero to an emerging sophisticated modern city within a mere six years is miraculous, Xi remarked, according to the Xinhua News Agency.
In April 2017, China announced plans to set up the Xiong’an New Area, which would be on par with the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and the Shanghai Pudong New Area. The development of Xiong’an embodies many long-term development goals for China, including high-quality, innovation-driven, and green development, and ultimate Chinese modernization, experts noted.
Underscoring the significance of Xiong’an, Xi has visited the city three times since 2017. During the latest trip on May 10, Xi visited various places in the city, including the construction sites of an inter-city railway station and an international trade center, where he learned about the development of key infrastructure projects and major projects launched for the purpose of relieving Beijing of functions nonessential to its role as the capital.
Xi said more efforts should be made to develop a multifaceted and integrated transportation network and make full use of underground space so as to build a “city of the future” free of urban maladies.
“President Xi was standing right here at this spot. Right here,” highlighted Fu, assistant to the general manager of Xiongshang Development Company under China Xiong’an Group, as he vividly recalls the trip with palpable excitement. “We were very happy to witness this scene.”
With an investment of 20.9 billion yuan ($2.99 billion), the site has a total of construction area of 1.6 million square meters, covering different building units, such as rail, office buildings, and hotels.
As an important transportation hub in Xiong’an, the complex is composed of four different rails, including one high-speed railway line, an R1 to terminal, and two sub lines, as well as different buildings, transforming the complex into a region with offices, hotels, apartments, as well as rail transit, and aviation services, Fu told the Global Times.
All the transfer can be realized under the ground upon completion, Fu said, adding that the farthest transfer distance does not exceed 270 meters, and it can realize a transfer to any rail in three-minute at the same-floor.
While the inter-city railway station and an international trade center, among many other major projects are still under construction, many have also been completed and Xiong’an’s calling cards of being a smart, green, and innovative are already taking shape.
By the end of 2022, Xiong’an had already seen an inflow of more than 510 billion yuan in investment earmarked for 240 major projects, according to the China Media Group. Another 270 key projects are expected to be launched in 2023, with a total investment of 664 billion yuan. Also, state-owned enterprises have set up more than 140 institutions in the city. Thousands of companies, most of which specialize in science and technology, have been registered in Xiong’an.
“The blockchain lab, which was established in 2020, with the goal of conducting research on and applying blockchain technologies and concepts to the construction of a new smart city, also highlights Xiong’an’s focus on innovation,” the outlet added.
“According to the plan, Xiong’an will form a ’15-minute living circle,’ that is, the residents can walk 5 minutes to send children to kindergartens, walk 10 minutes to vegetable markets and primary schools, and 15 minutes to hospitals and middle schools,” the outlet continued.
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council announced the decision to establish Xiong’an New Area in Hebei Province on April 1, 2017. The Xiong’an New Area project has the support of President Xi Jinping and other top leaders in China. As a millennium plan, a project with national significance, it is the first National New Area to be established on a national scale in the 21st century, following in the footsteps of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and the Pudong New Area in Shanghai. The construction of Xiong’an New Area as a model for undertaking high-quality development throughout China and a new driving force for the modern economic system has great significance in terms of national strategy. This is because Xiong’an New Area, China’s city of the future, seeks to be a leading-edge city that delivers innovative intelligence, a green ecology, and wellbeing (happiness and livability) on the basis of an ultra-long-term plan that runs until 2035. Although people’s values are changing as a result of COVID-19, bringing with it changes in their idea of an ideal city, the plan for Xiong’an New Area is proceeding steadily without major changes, having been informed by the study of a long history based on the wisdom of many of the world’s experts (see Figure 1). After first looking back over the history of urbanization in China, this article gives an overview of the plan for Xiong’an New Area and reports on the progress of construction.
