Solicitation of International Plans for Conceptual Architectural Design of Chongqing Cuntan Cruise Terminal TOD
The planning and construction of Cuntan area with high standards is a practice to thoroughly implement instructions on Chongqing proposed by General Secretary Xi Jinping, including the building of a sound political atmosphere, the positioning and goals of Chongqing as“dual geographic importance, twin goals and parallel progress”, Chongqing’s “three roles”and promotion for the construction of Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle. In addition, it is an important part for the implementation of action plan of the urban improvement , for the promotion of the governance improvement of "Two Rivers and Four Banks", and for the construction of an international consumption center city and an global renowned cultural tourism destination.
Cuntan International New City will be guided by promoting high-quality development for high-quality life. We should adhere to world vision, international standards, and Chongqing characteristics, and build it into an international consumption gathering area, an important part of international consumption center, a new important place for city image demonstration, a new windows to outside world. In this way, New City can turn into an important growth pole for Chongqing's high-quality development.
The planned area of Cuntan International New City covers about 6 square kilometers. It will be comprehensively based on the core area of Cuntan International Cruise Terminal, simultaneously driving the overall improvement of the bonded economic zone and Jinshan area. This will lead to a new modern international city featuring internationalization, green elements, intelligentized applications and humanity atmosphere. Specifically, the new city enjoys functional integration, facility and transportation connectivity and and linkage in a complementary way. Besides, the new city can be coordinated with Yingbin Peninsula of Jiguanshi in Nan'an District in terms of urban functions, transportation, and city forms. Complementary development will be highlighted for the potential tapping of Cuntan cruise terminal and for creation of a welcoming portal for guests of both sides of Yangtze river.
The planned area of the core area of Cuntan International Cruise Terminal covers 1.6 square kilometers. It will create the first port of global inland cruises that integrates ship, port, city, tour, shopping and entertainment, and lead to a core functional area of high-end international consumer, business, and exchanges with prominent functions of service, trade, and tourism.
The Cuntan International Cruise Center of this solicitation is a major functional facility and an important landmark building that promotes the overall construction of the Cuntan International Cruise Terminal and the Cuntan International New City.
Chongqing Cuntan International Cruise Center is determined to settle in the Cuntan Port area of Chongqing Liangjiang New Area, the north bank of the Yangtze River (about 6 kilometers east of the junction of the Yangtze and the Jialing River). It turns out to be the city skyline in the core area of the joint of the two rivers in its south, and to be adjacent to the Cuntan Free Trade Zone in its north (Nanshan Mountain across the river can be seen). The cruise center covers distance of about 12 kilometers away from Chongqing Jiangbei Airport, and lasts about 13 minutes to Chongqing Bei Railway Station (Figure 1).
