Qianjin Road is a planned road, in expectation of the community to come. It was designed to function as the main artery to service the western district of Kunshan. Projecting the trends of transportation development (BRT, light rail, bicycle) and considering other benchmarks for successful community based roads, iPD set out to create an environment that can become a place where social functions can be restored and the road can once more be a vibrant place.
