Taizhou City’s the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development and Outline of Long-term Goals for 2035 mentioned: Taizhou will speed up the second urbanization, the construction of provincial open high energy center city. To promote the central city to the development pattern of “integration of three districts and two cities”, and enhance the primacy of the central city as a municipal political, economic, cultural and scientific innovation center, therefore, to speed up the central rise, the development of urban integration is a matter of Taizhou significant global strategy, is also a major proposition throughout the course of the Taizhou urbanization, the future from the “based on the new stage of development, carry out the new development concept and build a new development pattern of high quality to promote urban integration development, as well as creating better city life. Feilong Lake eco-area is the geometric center of Taizhou city, and is also the core of ecological green heart block. The planning area is about 28 square kilometers with rich in ecological resources, such as: mountain-lake-farmland-grass-forest.The feilong Lake area is not only the “green lung”of Taizhou city but also the bonding area of Jiaojiang,-Huangyan-Luqiao districts. It is also the indispensable landscape context during the urbanization process of Taizhou city with unique location advantage and strategic position.

In order to meet the requirements of the high-point positioning of the project, the urban design plan adopts the international solicitation method, which aims to solicit forward-looking, innovative and implementable design solutions from top design institutions at home and abroad.

Comprehensively determining the zoning guidance of the urban style, and putting forward control requirements for the volume, style, and color of the building, to form an integrated and distinctive urban style. At the same time, it is necessary to put forward control requirements for important areas, important interfaces, the height relationship of landmark buildings, and landscape viewing corridors.

  • Underground Space

Comprehensive consideration should be given to the comprehensive utilization of underground space, emphasizing unified planning, unified development, hierarchical utilization, and interconnection between the ground and underground. The design should strengthen the comprehensive research on underground space and promote the intensive and economical use of space resources. It is necessary to coordinate comprehensive functions such as underground pipe gallery facilities, rail transit and underground roads, and optimize vertical design and three-dimensional space development. For the land around the rail transit station, the overall development should be considered in combination with the station, with clear functions and layered guidance.
