Multi-layered connectivity in a green urban district

The Xiaoli Station and Urban Area masterplan envisages a new, green urban district which focuses on Xiaoli Station and the nearby Intercity Station, around which a mix of uses are strategically placed according to 15-Minute Living principles. The stations lie on an east-west axis which, along with its north-south counterpart, hosts a continuous urban green landscape. The development creates multi-layered connections around well-defined axes, creating a unique identity for the area while integrating harmoniously with our wider masterplan for the city.

Vertical communities

The new stations are functionally efficient and multi-layered, with easy connections for bus, metro and pedestrian travel. The designs allow for smooth pedestrian flows and well-defined surrounding block functions, including retail, office, R&D, cultural and educational spaces. The stations create vertical communities which correspond on multiple levels with the surrounding urban area and the counterpart station. Each level has its own role, including retail, leisure and entertainment space, green space, workplaces, bus stations, taxi and metro options and railway connections, ensuring everything that residents at the upper levels and surrounding areas need can be found in one place.

A strong mix of uses and amenities

Xiaoli Station will be surrounded by various F&B options, co-working spaces, business centres, a library, community facilities and a health centre, among other provisions. The diverse green spaces will include a station sky garden, plazas, a rain garden, a cultural park and a pedestrian bridge.

A variety of public spaces

The dense configuration of streets and alleys in the district are home to several traditional and permeable courtyard spaces in which people can relax and socialise. There are also multi-level waterfront footpaths, parkland walkways and rooftop gardens. The development will be ecologically sustainable, with sponge city strategies for managing rainwater and the extensive green space reducing the urban heat island effect.
