Promoting a Sustainable Community with a High Quality of Living

TOWNLAND formulated an urban design for the city core in Yuxi, Yunnan Province, PRC. This design followed the “Three-Lakes Ecological Urban Cluster” development strategy to combine with the planning of the flood prevention system to develop a cultural region within the “Five mountain and One village” ecological concept.

Urban Design Schemes specifically tailored for the promotion of the City Image of the Central District of Yuxi City into a sustainable community with a high quality of living. Detailed Site and SWOT Analysis was undertaken to derive the Design Strategies and the Guidelines for implementation of the Design Schemes.  The Design Concepts evolved from the “3Es” – Enriched Life, Environment and Economy as well as the Compact City and Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Concept. 11 key streets and 3 key areas were selected for detailed design. Each street/area was given a uniquetheme and characteristics while keeping a harmonious cityscape overall.

To adequately preserve the heritage of the Old City Quarter, TOWNLAND adopted the “4R” Concept, Including pReservation, Rehabilitation, Revitalisation and Redevelopment. Taking references from other international cases, the cultural context of the City and ecological theme of the City clusters were underlined to realize the planning objective of “the most livable place in China”.
