A new type of urbanization emerging, based on the value of the entire pearl river system and the cooperation between urban agricultural and industrial practices in the new area. Its final form would have the tendency to be the fusion of the characteristics of linear cities and multi-functional cities. Urban density, public facilities and economic activity would be highly concentrated along the infrastructure, which will facilitate free development of the hollow polygonal parts of the entire Pearl River Delta where the natural space density is lowest.
