1. Project Overview

1.1 Project Name: International Competition of Comprehensive Developing Plan of Composite Traffic Hub and Its surrounding, Xilang, Canton

1.2 Project Location: The project is located in Xilang Metro Station, Xilang Vehicle Depot and its surrounding areas in Liwan District, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province.

1.3 Project Background

The construction of Guangzhou international comprehensive transportation junction is an important measure for the National Development and Reform Commission and the provincial and municipal governments to jointly construct Guangzhou into the comprehensive transportation junction model city. In fact, the complex construction based on rail transit junction will play an important role in the aspects of improving surrounding land utilization efficiency and travel conditions, creating integrally developed urban function areas, etc. Specifically, Xilang comprehensive transportation junction, located at Baietan, Liwan District, currently includes Xilang metro station and Xilang car depot and functions as the junction of metro line 1 and Guangzhou – Foshan metro line. In future, along with the gradual access of metro line 22, metro line 10 and other new metro lines, the existing station shall be necessarily transformed and it also has the favorable conditions for comprehensive development. After transformation, Xilang station will not only become the international comprehensive transportation junction for the interchange among four metro lines, but also become Guangzhou – Foshan junction, functionally as traffic transfer center and public service center. Therefore, Xilang station is an important node for constructing 1h transportation circle around Pearl River Delta and constructing Guangzhou into the comprehensive transportation junction model city.

In order to optimize the regional traffic centered on Xilang Comprehensive Transport Hub, enhance the function of Xilang Station Hub, improve the urban landscape, intensive land resources, and build an international rail transit hub, thus the International Competition of Comprehensive Developing Plan of Composite Traffic Hub and Its surrounding, Xilang, Canton (hereinafter referred to as “Competition”) is planned.

2. Work Scope and Competition Content

The tasks of this competition include three levels of content: at first, the research on the comprehensive transportation hub and the surrounding area of Xilang Station and suggestions for improvement; secondly, the concept design of development and construction of Xilang Station and vehicle depot; thirdly, the design of construction plan of comprehensive traffic hub of Xilang.

2.2 Developing conceptual design of the architecture of Xilang Station and vehicle depot

The conceptual plan design scope of Xilang station and vehicle depot’s Developing Conceptual Scheme of construction and development is namely comprehensive transportation hub plot of Xilang Station (including Xilang station hub, Xilang station depot). The land area is 42.8 hectares, and the comprehensive development area is about 1.64 million square meters. Besides, on the basis of urban design, the conceptual scheme of its architecture should be designed for the functional positioning, characteristic business planning, overall planning, three-dimensional greening, two-story pedestrian corridor, important building plane, elevation and section, important node space and underground space.

2.3 Comprehensive traffic hub building design of Xilang

The design scope of construction scheme of Xilang comprehensive transportation hub is engaged in the south area of Haizhong road in the comprehensive transportation hub plot of Xilang station. The applied land area is 18 hectares, and the comprehensive development construction area is about 840,000 square meters furthermore, the design of Xilang Comprehensive Transportation Hub needs to be further deepened on the basis of the conceptual design of Xilang Railway Station and depot development, including the detailed design of the four-line transfer organization mode and the corresponding hub space (including bus station site block).
