Surbana Jurong wins Chongqing Aerotropolis Township Urban Design competition
Surbana Jurong’s North Asia team has won first prize in Chongqing Aerotropolis Township Urban Design competition, its first transit-oriented development (TOD)-driven design win.
Chongqing is an emerging mega-city in southwest China and, according to a Telegraph report this year, is ranked 8th among the world’s cities with the most number of skyscrapers.
The township, which spans 2.2 km², sits within the 33 km² Chongqing Aerotropolis, with Jiangbei International Airport as the central transportation node.The project scope includes residential, commercial (office/ retail/ F&B), aviation training facilities, healthcare facilities, schools, a neighbourhood centre and parks.
Teo Eng Cheong, CEO, International, notes that the win will put SJ in a good position to pursue design consultancy work downstream for the rest of the aerotropolis.
