A Transit Oriented Development with a Distinctive, Identifiable and Memorable Character

The Wuhan Government commissioned TOWNLAND to participate in the International Competition for the conceptual planning and conceptual urban design of Yangchunhu Urban Sub-Centre in Wuhan, Hubei Province, PRC. The new High Speed Railway station that will be built at the outskirts of Wuhan will facilitate the development of Yangchunhu into one of the future Sub-Centres of the City.  TOWNLAND applied to this Project an ambition to maximize the spatial and socio-economic potential the HSR station brings to Wuhan in general and to the Site in particular.

Central to TOWNLAND’s planning and design was the promotion of a Transit Oriented Development that encourages walkability and pedestrian friendliness.  The Master Layout Plan provides for design solutions to effectively move pedestrians from the High Speed Railway Station and the Underground Railway Station into the rest of the Commercial Centre.

The detailed Urban Design of the core area of the Yangchunhu Sub-Centre aims for the creation of a vibrant and lively district that optimizes the area around the High Speed Rail Station into a centralized commercial and retail activity hub with supporting residential uses.  The design introduces an architectural form that clearly defines circulation axes, major open spaces, intersections and surrounding areas with a distinctive, identifiable and memorable character.
