A New Urban Centre with a Focus on High Technology

Lijia Cluster is located in Lijia Town, New Northern District, Chongqing. Jialing River is immediately located to the northwest of the Cluster.  The planning area for the Lijia Cluster is 16.15 square kilometers in area with a residential population of 180,000. The Study area itself, or Central Area, is located within the centre of the Lijia Cluster and is 1.7 square kilometers in area.

As First Prize Winner of the design competition, TOWNLAND were chosen to undertake a further detailed study of the winning masterplan.  The Study devised a detailed set of urban design guidelines that will direct further development for a population of 40,000 and will stimulate both interest and investment from local and foreign investors. 

In devising a set of urban design guidelines, the Master Plan was divided into 39 blocks.  Each block was outlined with a list of detailed requirements in terms of planning and design, as well as architectural and landscape styles.  The urban design guidelines included direction on, for instance, building siting and access, plot ratios and building heights and architectural and landscape design including types, textures and colouring of materials.
