Designed by Aedas, China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group and Shenzhen Urban Transport Consortium, the winning scheme of Qingshuihe Comprehensive Transportation Hub in Luohu, Shenzhen is an impressive Transit-Oriented Development with high degree of station-city integration. It will become a major transportation hub in Shenzhen with 4 urban rails, 1 intercity line, 1 high-speed rail line and various ground transportation.
As the last developable land in Luohu, one of the earliest urban area in Shenzehn, Qingshuihe was once the border of the Special Economic Zone, and has subsequently lagged in growth in terms of the city’s innovative and technology industries. Located at the nexus of multiple strategic links of the region and surrounded by mature supporting facilities, the area possesses favorable conditions for development. Seizing on these potentials, it is designed to transform Luohu’s modern industries.
The design merges station-city road, rail traffic, and compound space to render seamless connection between urban and traffic functions. “This is not just the construction of a high-speed rail station, but an urban district renewal. We hope to build Qingshuihe into a super hub city with a high degree of integration. The core areas are integrated into the slow traffic network of the Qingshuihe Hub to realize the coordination of the urban and the hub functions,” Liang expounded.
