Where is Xiong'an?
Xiong'an area is a new state-level zone administered directly by the central government and will therefore enjoy all of the associated financial benefits, resources, and access to expertise.
A clean slate
Xiong'an appears to be a "tabula rasa" on which to build a city with the capital's own interests at heart, and with the full authority of the current central government administration.
A time-tested development playbook
There must be a long-term timeline and a clear master plan, followed by the building of infrastructure, and then the amenities that will enhance the quality of life such as the schools, hospitals and universities that will make the place desirable. After that, office buildings can follow.
