Canadian Maple City
The master plan is inherently sustainable in terms of its structure and land utilization. The development adheres to sustainability principles in the following ways:
The remediation of significant ground contamination and pollution issues which currently exist on the development site.
The development of a range of public transport options, including a CMC bus system and a link to commuter train, to reduce the reliance on the private car.
An urban structure and public land which encourages walking and cycling throughout the development.
A mix of land uses which provides employment, entertainment and, leisure opportunities, as well as a range of community facilities, within easy walking distance of residential areas, thereby reducing the need to travel.
A range of economic development opportunities to enable the growth and diversification of the economy of Dhaka and Narayangonj.
The revitalization of existing green spaces, including a range of new open spaces.
The '‘greening’' of streets and avenues that will help to mitigate the effects of pollution emitted from vehicles.
A mix of residential unit types, in terms of size, target market and value, which will help to create vibrant, socially-mixed communities.
