Design Scheme Solicitation Announcement for the Overall Strategic Planning for Chongqing Rail Transport Line 1 (Bishan Station to Majiayan Station) TOD Mixed Use Development and Design Scheme for Demonstration Station TOD Mixed Use Development
I. Project background
TOD, a “Public Transport Orientated” urban development model that allows high intensity and efficiency development within 600m – 800m (approximately 10 mins walking distance) radius around a rail transport station, generating an integrated mixed-use area accommodating functions such as working, retail, culture, shopping, entertainment, travel, living and others, and realising a highly harmonious integration between working, living and ecology. The nature of TOD is “Building the Rail is Building the City”, it promotes the principles of extensive mixture between city functions and space, high intensity development circles around the stations, people orientated public transport traffic system and city centre revitalisation. The goal is to create a more convenient, more liveable and more harmonious life and a beautiful city.
The relevant departments of our City have established the planning, implementation advice and implementation plan for urban rail transport TOD mixed-use development, in order to expedite the urban rail transport TOD mixed-use development of Chongqing and promote the coordinated development between rail transport and city construction. In the future, Chongqing will emphasis on building high-quality “on the rail” metropolitan city areas, seeking the soul with visionary planning, identifying functions through strategic planning, establishing spatial order through space planning and defining a schedule with time planning, thus achieving the “four simultaneous planning” rationale and progressing the overall city development along the rail transport lines through rail transport TOD mixed-use development. The TOD mixed-use development will facilitate the “one-day living circle” at the stations, uplifting the service quality in the “last kilometre”.
Our City will, based on the principle of “promotion following pilots”, organise and implement a series of urban rail transport TOD mixed-use development projects in the city metropolitan area in phases. Rail transport Line 1 related stations have now been organised to proceed with project strategic planning and integrated urban design, which will incorporate the industry types, urban forms, city infrastructure road, integrated utility tunnel, and transport connection of the TOD projects into a unified project strategic planning and integrated urban design. It will also comprehensively consider the related surrounding city utility infrastructure and public transport station, transportation hub, public service facility and other affiliated facilities.
II. Purpose of the planning
Chongqing Rail Transport Line 1 runs across Yuzhong District, Jiulongpo District, Shapingba District and Bishan District. It starts from Chao Tian Men in Yuzhong District and extents to Bishan District to the west; it is the primary east – west line of the rail transportation network. This Solicitation is intended as an open global solicitation for the Overall Strategic Planning for Chongqing Rail Transport Line 1 (Bishan Station to Majiayan Station) TOD Mixed Use Development and the Strategic Planning and Design Scheme for the TOD Mixed Use Development of Demonstration Station(s).
Current Chongqing TOD development condition shall be analysed in depth for identifying issues, directions and methods, summarizing the essence and inner qualities of Chongqing TOD, and performing in-depth planning study for TOD mixed-use development. With forward thinking and innovative design philosophy and scheme, new thinking and new vitality will be introduced into the Rail Transport Line 1 TOD Mixed Use Development. Through the integrated planning, differentiated positioning of the 14 stations within the planned scope, promoting of the establishment of Rail Transport Line 1 TOD Mixed-use area into an innovative, coordinated, green, open, and shared pilot area and the showcasing TOD example for the future Chongqing.
III. Design scope and scale
