Detailed urban design scope of downtown area
Nowadays, due to industrialization-driven urbanization and rapid economic growth, bottlenecks and problems of urban development have gradually emerged with the rapid expansion of construction framework of Dongyang downtown area, such as vague spatial mode of landscape city and gradual inundation of urban culture; urban functional plates are loose and not compact enough; urban image and style are inferior and lack of iconic urban business cards; the construction of urban industrial platform is poor with implicit space of three industries; the areas along the Dongyang River only focus on the construction of the landscape belt but lack an overall landscape coordination of the two banks of one river, and the vitality needs to be improved, etc. All these problems are constraining the further upgrade of the overall quality of Dongyang City.
The solicitation should be based on the three districts and three lines initially demarcated in the City’s current land spatial planning scheme, and focus on solving, but not limited to, the aforementioned problems. Through problem sort-out, target positioning, strategy formulation, action plan, project library and economic estimation, it will provide the orientation for Dongyang’s future urban development and guidelines for statutory plan revision, urban renewal and near-term development and construction. Objectives in the three following aspects are to be realized specifically.
Conduct overall planning and unified coordination with relevant plans in Dongyang City. Based on the history and city-wide construction of Dongyang and combined with new regional development situation and local actual demands, form a more consensual urban development prospect and overall spatial framework of orderly and flexible development with international vision and forward-looking thinking. Focus on the control of environmental pattern and spatial system, with attention paid to undertaking the relevant mature plot planning at the same time and integration and interpretation carried out from the perspective of urban design.
Combined with the city image shaping action and space optimization design like acupuncture, delve into natural ecological features and historical and cultural characteristics of Dongyang City. Deeply study the design standards of functional business formats, public space, public facilities, space morphology, transportation organization and other aspects that are compatible with the needs of urban development, improve urban cultural vitality and ecological livability advantages, attract innovative talent and gather innovative vitality. Pay attention to technological innovations in green ecology, smart city and other fields, with refined space design and prominent features of various scenes, so as to demonstrate future urban space quality and work and life style of Dongyang, and showcase the style of urban age.
Advocate operable, experiential and implementable deliverables, customize practical and viable management and operation paths in line with the administrative system framework, and provide effective and unequivocal content guidance and control indicators for the work of “holistic, all elements, and all coverage” of national land space planning. Provide the decision-making mechanism, action plan and construction temporal sequence guidance that can instruct the update and subsequent implementation, form the action plan and implementation project library to facilitate the Project siting and department allocation for organization and implementation.
As the regional development environment evolves quickly in the new era, Dongyang is faced by increasingly urgent need of city quality upgrade. In recent years, Dongyang has done massive planning work on urban transformation and development and blueprint conception. At the same time, a large number of corresponding special research work is also being carried out in an orderly manner, including the layout planning of various cultural, educational, sports and health facilities based on urban construction, the green space system planning based on the construction of public open space system, the road network special planning that outlines the future traffic network at the macro level, and the action planning of renowned historical and cultural city targeting the old town of Wuning, etc. At the more micro level of plot development and construction, combined with the needs of market-oriented operation and government operation management, a large amount of detailed design and research work of small and micro plots has been carried out, fully reflecting the enthusiasm and foresight of government administration departments.
In the face of multiple planning intelligence deliverables, the solicitation event cores upon comprehensively coordinating with relevant plannings of Dongyang City, draws effective and feasible parts based on systematic sort-out, generalization and summarization. In combination with the new regional development situation and the actual local demands, a more consensual overall urban design development orientation, target strategy, layout structure and spatial morphology will be formed. To be implemented and operated via the operational capacity of the administration authorities, the solicitation will effectively lead the coordinated advancement of future urban development and construction of Dongyang downtown area and various management work.
