The architectural design of "New Transit" utilizes the curving and linear building groupings which enhances the transparency of the community thus maximizing the view of each unit. The double balcony design of "New Transit" facilitates ventilation inside the unit and allows natural lights to penetrate deep through it.
"New Transit" is close to the commencing station of Wuhan Subway line No. 2 - Jinyintan Station. Residents will have easy access to the subway which when open will connect all three districts of Wuhan. Having been developed for more than 10 years, Changqing Garden has a full range of comprehensive facilities throughout the community, but the new 1,000 sq. m. long commercial street inside the "New Concept" phasing, which is also located in Neighborhood No.5, will add extra convenience to residents of "New Transit".
