A Three-Dimensional Mixed-Use Landmark Development

TOWNLAND was commissioned to prepare a Planning and Design Strategy for 60 ha of land surrounding the proposed Beijing Metro Liuli Qiao (West) Station (Lines 9 and 10). Based upon the principles of Transit Oriented Development (TOD), the Strategy aimed to effectively maximise and utilise land by directly integrating the Liuli Qiao West Station and its Passenger Transport Hub, with other traffic modes and surrounding land uses.

The development of the Master Layout Plan consists of five major components including: (1) Metro Station Development that incorporates a multi-level circular underground Station with above landmark tower and direct underground linkages with surrounding transport modes; (2) Podium Development that has been elevated off the ground floor to provide permeable car-free pedestrian environments as well as vibrant indoor and outdoor retail/entertainment landscaped spaces; (3) Tower Development that consists of a series of three-dimensional tower blocks with triangulated and twisted architectural forms that contain commercial and hotel uses; (4) Residential Development directly to the south-east of the Station consisting of numerous free-standing residential blocks enclosing their own semi-public landscaped courtyards; and (5) a Metro Park Development has been designed to provide a flowing connection between the Metro Station and surrounding land uses. The Metro Park has been designed as a dynamic series of hard and soft spaces each containing different activities that include recreational uses, public event squares, outdoor sport activity areas, alfresco dining areas, an ecological park, a botanical garden and a passive green buffer situated around the periphery of the lake.

Overall, TOWNLAND’s objective for the Master Layout Plan was to generate a unique and striking three-dimensional mixed-use landmark development that reflects the importance of multi-transportation inter-changes. TOWNLAND received SECOND PRIZE for this Project.
