Jiangshan is located in the merging area among the three provinces of Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi. It is the southwest gateway of Zhejiang Province. The construction and opening of the Hangzhou-Quzhou High-Speed Railway bring new opportunities to Jiangshan. The relocation of land resources reserves more space for city development. The implementation of the city development strategy and the urban design settle the overall pattern for the city development…… The development of Jiangshan City is entering a new era.
In this context, New Landmarks in Jiangshan: International Competition for Architectural Design of High-Rise Office Buildings in Chengbei New Town will be launched soon. This competition consists of two projects, which play an important part in presenting the image of the urban gateway of Jiangshan. The competition is hosted by the People’s Government of Jiangshan Municipality, organized by Natural Resources and Planning Bureau of Jiangshan Municipality and Jiangshan City Construction Investment Co., Ltd., co-organized by Shenzhen Position Spatial Culture Development Co., Ltd. It is also an important measure to satisfy the demand for corporate offices, optimize the urban image and grasp the opportunity for development.
This competition consists of two projects. Project #1, with the building height restriction of 149 meters, is intended to construct ultra high-rise offices and supporting commercial facilities. Project #2 includes two plots with building height restrictions of 90 meters and 120 meters respectively. It is intended to construct high-rise offices, supporting apartments and commercial facilities.
The competition aims to build a landscape center of Chengbei New Town and new city landmarks for Jiangshan City. They will further strengthen the landscape axis and optimize the urban skyline. The competition will select outstanding design proposals from design teams around the world to create high-quality office spaces as well as vibrant urban public spaces. The construction of the two projects will contribute to helping Quzhou building into a central city on the boundaries of four provinces.
The sites of the two projects are both located on the west side of Zhanqian Avenue, along the southeast-northwest landscape visual corridor of Chengbei New Town of Jiangshan City. The major functions of the surrounding buildings are residence and commerce.
The site area of Project #1 (Plot B-005-01) is 21566 ㎡. It is planned to build ultra high-rise buildings for offices and supporting commercial facilities. The FAR of the project is 5.5 tentatively and the building height should be restricted to 149 meters. The planned gross floor area of Project #1 is 170803 ㎡ tentatively, including the above-ground FAR-calculated floor area of 118613 ㎡.
