Beijing’s municipal government officially moved into its new suburban home with a dawn flag-raising ceremony Friday. The Chinese capital has planned for years to shift its administrative center out to the outer Tongzhou district in an effort to rein in population growth, traffic congestion and air pollution in Beijing’s denser inner districts.

Tongzhou is around 20 kilometers east of downtown Beijing. Since its selection as the city’s second “downtown” area in 2015, Tongzhou has seen a housing boom followed by tightened restrictions on newly-arrived residents.
