Sichuan Normal University Station TOD ProjectChengdu, China
The TOD project is located on the west side of Jing’an Road, Jinjiang District, Chengdu. It is adjacent to the rail transit station of Sichuan Normal University Station. It covers an area of 103,466sqm,with a total GFA of 303,666sqm. This is a mix-used development project for Line 13 and Line 7 interchange stations. In order to arrange the complex mix-used program, the design strategy is to create a vertical three-dimensional development from ground space to underground space to improve land use efficiency.
The design theme echoes the culture of slow living in Chengdu – slowing down the pace of life. It emphasizes the complexity and openness of the pedestrian level. We introduce street retail to create more “outer boundaries” to enjoy sun, air and green. The comfortable and convenient walking environment encourages the public to use rail transit. In addition, street retailing introduced the western city park to the site, echoing the planning concept of Chengdu “Garden City”.
