Compact
Promote high density with mixed land uses based on an efficient public transport system which encourages walking and cycling

Compact Icon.jpg
Densification & Intensification

Ensure that the building form and intensity of development create diversity of attractions

Transport Oriented Development

Promote higher densities around TOD’s (Transport Oriented Development) with mixed land uses

Networks & Districts

Enrich and combine different networks with urban densities

 Densification & Intensification

Implement the ‘compact city’ concept; promote high density with mixed land uses, based on an efficient public transport system. The benefits include shorter commute times, reduced environmental impact of the community, and reduced consumption of fossil fuels and energy. Create efficient transport network options within and between neighbourhoods, districts, towns and cities.

  • Densification and intensification of suburban areas to add new vitality to existing places. Provide a rich range of experiences through the urban grain

  • Complementary Uses: Provide a rich mix of housing, jobs, schools and retail

  • Access to local services: Provide community facilities within easy walking distance to meet the daily needs

  • Green & Open Spaces: Ensure easy access to  leisure spaces to maintain physical and mental health

  • Continuity: Ensure there is an overall harmonious blend

 

 Transport Oriented Development

Transport Oriented Development (TOD) maximizes the amount of residential, business and leisure space within
walking distance of public transport. TOD aims to increase public transport ridership by reducing the use of private cars and by promoting sustainable urban growth. Cities can ensure TOD by focusing on

  • Location: Locate stations with highest ridership potential and development opportunities

  • Distance: Designate 500m to 1000m radius around station as higher density, mixed-use, walkable development

  • Densities: Create range of densities with highest at station, tapering down to existing neighbourhoods

  • Multi model connections: Enhance multi-modal connections, making transfers easy, direct, and comfortable

  • Urban connection: Design station site for seamless pedestrian connections to surrounding development

  • Place making: Create public plaza directly fronting one or more sides of the station building. Use station as catalyst for major redevelopment of area and great place making around station

  • Retail: Create retail and cafe streets leading to station entrances along main pedestrian connections

  • Cycling: Incorporate bike share, a comprehensive bike-way network, and large ride-in bike parking area.
