Hi you all! Sorry for the delay of the update, I got a lot homework, anyway today I'll do a larger update, hope not too large to be boring, so enjoy it!
Today we'll go over the Hallanen Metro Area Plan!
To roughly give you an idea of how this was developed, I present an sketch of the plan (I made on Paint, so don't expect too much, its just a sketch).
From this sketch you can get the general idea of the plan, focusing more on the importance of the industrial clusters, the railway system and the road layout. All of these factors are equally important for the development of Hallanen. Another aspect to highlight is the presence of the tunnels, which where the most used solution by the engineers for the developing the railway system.
So let's begin with the pictures!
First of all, I'll show you another view of the capital so that you can see the road layout on the main part of the city.
The government seek for a organic city design, which includes the nature as an integral part of the city. That is why all the industrial clusters are surrounded by a dense forest, so that it acts as a barrier between the industrial zones and the city. The less important concern is contamination, as you see the industry is High Tech in both cluster, which is a huge boost for the commercial sector on the city.
As well, the avenue that acts as boundary between the city and the industrial clusters is called the Rinne Ave, and is one of the main avenues of the capital, and one of the busiest ones.
To begin the trip, we arrive to the intersection between the avenues to Hallenest and the one to Malaquie Town to the right of the photo. As you are able to see on the right, the water department of the city decided to invest on water treatment plant that serves the three cities (Hallenest, Sud Halle and Hallanen). This is the main entrance the people use when they come from other cities on the country.
Going into the city, you will be able to see a development of high wealth boutiques and commerces that welcomes you to the capital. The corner building you are seeing is called the Waston Boutiques Hall, it includes the prestigious Waston Boutiques as well as others prestigious commerces that are very well known across the country. This little area is commonly called the Rolly offices, because of the Rolly family which are one of the richest group in the city and they own the Waston Boutiques chain.
Before going downtown, we'll visit the suburbs.
This little suburbs area was developed in the outskirts of the city, and was the first residential zone made after the 18th earthquakes. This is one of the most desirable areas of the city, just after downtown this is because of the forest that surrounds the suburbs as well as for the very effective mass transport systems that serves this sector, including the metro system.
The next stop is the fire department. This beautiful glass building is the home of the biggest heroes of the city. After the disaster, the government made a huge investment on security services and even more on this department specifically. The building is called the A - Team Building (alias A - Building), because that was the name of the group of heroes which fight against the fire on 18/9 earthquake.
Also the fire department got recently a exclusive airstrip for a air fire fighting force!
The next stop is towards the Rinne Avenue, specifically onto the industrial clusters. The two of them are the biggest ones on the country, and supply almost all the works for the people of the capital, the others job sources are the commercial offices. Here is a view of the North Cluster.
And now we'll visit the south cluster. Both areas are divided just by the Sud Halle Ave. Also, those two parks you see there are the boosters of desirability on the area, both of them are sunken and are called the "Joumelles Parks".
This is the sector of the cluster that is on Hallanen, the rest and the majour part is on Sud Halle.
In the next photo, you'll see to the right the industrial clusters as well as the forest areas and the farm zones. To the bottom left you'll be able to see the railway tracks and the Maree Mountain. To the top is where the suburbs are, and the huge construction zone in the middle is the prestigious University of Clayhurst. Which is our next stop.
At last, that avenue that surrounds the city, from here you can see its importance as it acts as roundabout with the city in the middle of it.
University of Clayhurst, this is for far one of the most prestigious and well-known universities across the planet. The committee of the university decided to made a new campus, and as Hallanen was developing and growing as one of the most profitable and with the best living standards, they decided to installed the campus on here.
The university offers by now a range of 10 differents careers, from architecture to law studies. But for far the most requested career is Urban Design. The phase B, seeks to finish the campus on Hallanen and the phase C the placement of other campus on the country.
Here is a larger view of the area.
The next photo is the main entrance to the entrance coming from Finland and Norway. And under the avenue is where the HATC loops into the country again towards Malaquie Town.
Following this avenue, we'll reach the intersection at the north between the Rinne Ave and the FR - 1 Freeway.
Here is a larger view of the area but focusing more onto the FR - 1 Freeway, this connects you towards the main highway, the A - 1, which connects almost all the cities on the country.
For last, you are able to see the clusters of trees around Hallanen, that is because in the beginning, Hallanen was a forest, so that is why the government wanted so much to include nature as a integral part of the city. So that is all for this update, the next and last about Hallanen will go around downtown, and I'll post it around wednesday or thursday. Thanks for reading, and again I hope you like it. Any feedback is completely welcome.
