The vision of the proposition is "Ecological city heart, Cultural lakeside".

In terms of ecology, Yanzi lake and Yanzi hill are regarded as the ecological double cores, and three ecological surfaces are shaped along the three directions of the branches of Pingshan River, linking the regional ecological system; in terms of urban function extension, three comprehensive development areas are formed in the north, southwest and Southeast defined naturally by the three ecological surfaces to undertake the extension of peripheral functions; in terms of public services, the boundary of Yanzi lake is optimized, and the its first-line land is reserved for municipal public facilities, where ten cultural landscaped complexes are arranged, playing the role of living salon of  Shenzhen East. The future movement of Yanzi Lake area is shaped by the skyline falling gradually from the periphery to the lakeside.
