well, I think pretty much every city in the world has some form of industry going on in it - that's one of the reasons why cities came about in the first place - a central meeting place for the exchange of goods and services.
If you're looking for examples of cities reliant on industry, or that were founded on industry, there are lots of examples of those spread all over the world too.
I'm not sure exactly what it is you're looking for. Some for information would be helpful.
well ok.. what I'm looking for sites that have information (land use, site analysis, ...) about NEW industrial cities.
I'll tell you my project, it's designing a small city 1900 fedans for small industries and crafts.. there would be no factories, may be small ones but mainly work shops.. if you can help me find examples for anything like that I'd appreciate that so much.
I'm not sure about the spelling, it could be fadden (1 Fadden = 4200 kilometers)
Sorry I made a mistake I'm going to PLAN this area, that means I'll do only zoneing and land use for this whole area. I will only do a detailed design for an area of 200 faddans in the city. Sence I live in Egypt the project would be in a place neer Cairo. It would be for light industries and crafters. We have a lot of examples like that in Egypt, what I want is an example in another country to do comparison.
There aren't many new industrial cities that are planned out from scratch. Northwest Landing in Dupont Washington is a planned community with business park, residential, industrial, etc. Although, Egyptian development and industry is very different than in the United States. It is about 3,000 acres... I have no idea how many faddens that is.
One of the most interesting concepts I have seen in awhile is the village of New Oroville in India. It is a private village created by Catalytic Software that places high tech workers in a sustainable village environment. Information about the village is on the software website.
I'm at a loss for "planned from scratch" but there are a lot of warehouse districts throughout the US that promote live-work opportunities, usually in the arts but not industry. Its very interesting to compare your concept to them.
A Google search on "live work space" yields a ton of sites.
BTW - This thread's avatars are chock full of vixens and beer.
