Pedestrian-level wind conditions in residential areas are closely related to the quality of urban residents' daily life. In this paper, seven representative building layouts of urban residential areas were summarized from actual residential areas of Harbin, and wind tunnel experiments were carried out to study the pedestrian-level wind comfort in these residential areas. The assessments of pedestrian wind comfort are performed by combining the wind tunnel results and long-term local wind statistics. The results show that the hybrid-type and the enclosed-type layouts can provide better pedestrian wind comfort than parallel-type layouts, and the building heights of residential areas need to be controlled in cities of severe cold regions.
