I don't know... The high residential building blocks behind the lowrises looks way more boring that al the chaotic lowrises that has the feel of a small city. It is kinda weird here because it's locked between many modern highrises but these parts shouldn't all be destroyed. Actually, I think walking in the lowrise part is probably more of an experience than walking on the sides between highways and big buildings.

Yap, it's part of the city axis, part of the city's living-room as they call it, the region that bears the mission for the the city to get rid of the long existing nickname of "city of no personality"

That area actually looks really interesting. There's something about an organic urban form that planned developments can never capture. I sometimes wonder if we're repeating the errors of the cultural revolution, back then it was all get rid of the old, old is bad, but now China is desperately trying to reconnect with that lost heritage. Now the same thing is happening again, new is not always better.

First, those houses are built in the 80s or 90s not anything historical and most likely they are unsafe in today's Guangzhou standards. These areas are also cause a lot of problems for the city in many ways.

Houses that close together is unsafe. All the congestion can cause alot problems such as fires and stuff, especially in hot weather.

But I agree, It would make a wonderful park

I completely support the park idea. Every megalopolis has to have a defining park. Paris has a bunch, NYC has Central, London has Hyde, etc, etc, etc. Park all the way!

There is already several parks close by that area they don't need another one. Plus the central axis is going to be another park after completion.

I agree. I don't know if there is any value to these lowrises (ie traditional style) which would make them valuable.
I don't like the sim city mentality of just razing city blocks.
