In the second half of urbanization, the main city of Nanjing broke its cocoon

In the second half of urbanization, the main city of Nanjing broke its cocoon
Ten years ago, Nanjing’s urbanization rate exceeded 80%, and urbanization entered the second half. The Tiebei area, which is dominated by Xuanwu and Gulou, and the Yuhua “Two Bridges” located in the south of the city, are the last areas of the main city with development value. Bidding farewell to the path of regional dependence, reshaping the urban fabric, and promoting industrial transformation, several major areas have been updated and many innovative explorations have been carried out.

“Intensive cultivation, meticulous crafting, one thing a year, a blank piece of paper, starting from scratch, drawing the most beautiful and best picture.” Following the new development concept to promote urban renewal, those urban-rural junctions that have undergone rounds of historical changes have ushered in a new life.

It’s about the future of the bottom of the box

The “two bridges” are located in the heart of Yuhua, but because they have been separated from the main city for a long time, they have become the depression in the south of Nanjing. In January 2014, the “Two Bridges” headquarters was established. Four months later, it was included in Nanjing’s urban integration plan, and later it became a major event for the municipal party committee and the municipal government to focus on supporting Yuhua. Then, it took the initiative to benchmark Hangzhou Gongshu District, and invited Shenzhen Leo and other domestic and international first-class design units to serve as think tanks. Just a special plan for urban design took two years of polishing and six drafts.

Entering the era of stock, the main city is generally anxious. At that time, Nanjing’s urbanization process has gone through more than 30 years, the main city space is insufficient, the shortcomings of functional decline are becoming more and more prominent, coupled with the lack of support for advantageous industries and major projects, how to solve many structural contradictions, Nanjing set its sights on a number of plots at the bottom of the box.

In the past, the Tiebei area was the largest urban village gathering in the main city, with a dirty environment and potholes, like a scar. In 2014, Xuanwu District took the lead in establishing the Tiebei Hongshan New Town Management Committee to start the development and construction of Tiebei area. With the opening of the road network and the introduction of resources, Tiebei Hongshan, which has broken the isolated island situation, is embedded in the city’s innovation chain, absorbs high-end industrial elements, and has given birth to the ambition of leading the integration of industry and city.

Across the way, the Drum Tower Tiebei Area is also pinned on high hopes. It once flourished because of heavy industry, and the wave of “retreating from two to three” took away most of the pillar enterprises. In 2020, Gulou District released a spatial and industrial plan to build Tiebei with the new concept of the Shogunate Innovation District, exploring large-scale organic renewal within an area of 13.8 square kilometers. For example, in the first phase of the Shogunate Zhigu plot, Changan Automobile left rows of old factories in 2003, and 27 buildings of about 40,000 square meters were reused by transforming them into villa-like single-family office buildings, loft-style garden townhouses, and double-storey high-ceilinged open spaces.

The idea is basically the same. Infrastructure construction, industry introduction first, talent gathering leading, and service support synchronous ……The process is like breaking out of the cocoon into a butterfly, long and full of challenges, but this is a tough battle that has to be fought and must be won, which is exactly the name of the “Two Bridges” documentary – “Mission”.

Becoming more connected to people

Yuhuatai District has entered the city from the suburbs, and a large number of farmers “wash their feet and go upstairs”, and living well is their most simple wish. In the early years, the “Two Bridges” area scientifically coordinated land, capital and other elements, built Majiadian Happy City with high standards, and used more than 4,000 buildings to realize the people’s dream of living in peace. Just as the relevant person in charge of the “Two Bridges” headquarters said, we have lost a sum of money for selling land and paid an extra amount of construction fees, but if we can win the satisfaction of the masses, we are willing.

Respect the needs of people, to the vast and the subtle. Before the development and construction of the area, the predecessor of No. 1 ditch, the central ditch of Youfang, had insufficient drainage capacity and poor water quality. The “Two Bridges” Headquarters has cured diseases and cured the root cause by means of intercepting pollution and replenishing water, and has also built green belts and riverside parks along the line.

“People come to the city to live and stay in the city to live better.” Entering a new development cycle, the functions of the old city are constantly being relieved, but high-level public services such as education, medical care, elderly care, and culture are obvious advantages that cannot be moved away or dismantled in the short term. Gulou and Xuanwu have run every school and hospital at their doorstep and built a “nursing home” at home through the optimization of people’s livelihood resources, so as to promote the overall improvement of the marginal plate of the main city through the optimization of the layout of people’s livelihood resources.

The Gulou Tiebei area, which is under construction everywhere, is also expected to come to the future. Soon, Metro Line 7 and Line 5 will fill the gap between the northeast and southwest of the area, and together with the existing Line 3, they will form a “two horizontal and one vertical” subway network and connect to the main artery of the city. At the same time, the construction of the Shangyuanmen cross-river passage and the opening of Wubaicun Road and other dead-end roads are further improving the road network in the area. Coupled with the continuous supply of new commercial houses and new houses, the construction of the Shogunate Branch and the Tonshi Branch has been started, and Tiebei has the potential to become a livable and workable place.

Share high-quality resources with the old city, and feed the old city with the construction of the new city. At the end of July last year, the three old communities in the Yingyuan community of Hongshan Street were fully completed. This popular project, which covers an area of more than 250,000 square meters and involves 3,500 households, is all paid for by Xincheng Construction. There are also the renovation of the Hongshan Party and Mass Service Center, the renovation of the Beiyuan Farmers’ Market, and a number of road repairs.

The value of the new city drip irrigation of the whole city. Nanjing Innovation New City feeds back the old city capital policy, makes reasonable use of the land income from the development of the new city and new area, and feeds back 15 billion yuan to the old city in the past five years.03

Industrial cultivation is more important than residential development

The introduction of industries requires space carriers. Since the overall transformation was launched in 2014, Hongshan New Town has released more than 1,340 acres of land resources, attracting more than 20 domestic and foreign enterprises to negotiate frequently. In 2018, Galaxy Holdings, which came all the way from Shenzhen, unexpectedly won the first comprehensive land in the area. Backed by its strong industrial resource pool, more than half of the investment promotion tasks have been completed during the two-year epidemic period. In close cooperation with the district and street governments, it has attracted headquarters and heads such as Zhongke Soft, China Tower, Jingdong Five Star, and Xicheng Group to settle in. Up to now, the occupancy rate of the park has reached 99.5%, 320 enterprises have created 4,000 jobs, and the annual tax revenue is more than 300 million yuan. Focusing on artificial intelligence, cloud computing, new energy, future automobiles and other industrial directions, Hongshan New Town, which started its second business, is facing the harvest period.

In the southeast corner of the Shogunate Mountain, behind the scaffolding, the Nanjing Tongdahai Science and Technology R&D Center project ushered in the capping. Tongdahai has accelerated its expansion in the smart court business in recent years, and landed on the Growth Enterprise Market of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange last year. The leading listed companies “voted with their feet”, giving confidence to the Gulou Shogunate Innovation Zone. Although the planned area of the project is only 1 square kilometer, the project is an innovative industrial community focused on building in the area. With Tongdahai settlement as the golden signboard, the carrier investment is expected to open up a new situation. At the end of last year, Gulou started the construction of an industrial digital headquarters base here, which has attracted a number of enterprises, service institutions and incubators in the field of digital economy.

Despite the scattered land plots, the Gulou Tiebei Area still sorted out a number of relatively considerable scale carriers – the Huaneng (Nanjing) Binjiang Headquarters Base project with a total investment of 8.686 billion yuan, which has both commercial and office functions and gathers upstream and downstream enterprises of new energy such as offshore wind power and photovoltaic power generation; Fanyue City Plaza, led by Zhongchu Zhiyun, has gathered a number of steel trade supply chain enterprises; In addition, there are Huadian Jiangsu headquarters, China Energy Construction Energy Equipment Industrial Park, etc.

The city is the “shell”, and the production is the “shell”. The more complete the city’s system, the more people can be attracted to settle down, and the higher the energy level of production, which can help more people innovate and start businesses. The task of film development is not only the physical development space, but also to promote the leap of industrial energy level.

The Seongnam plate is also gathering strength. The “Two Bridges” area focuses on high-tech enterprises or new research in the digital economy, and undertakes the industrial expansion and industrial spillover of the Software Valley. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, it will provide 4 million to 6 million square meters of R&D carriers for Software Valley, undertake 200,000 soft-related talents to settle down, and increase the total population to 400,000.04

The old town continues to grow

To reorganize the rivers and mountains, we need a different concept.

It occupies one of the few large-scale contiguous R&D sites in the entire Gulou Tiebei area, and the 8 plots of land consolidated by the Shogunate Zhigu Science and Technology Innovation Center (Phase II) are particularly precious. In the face of the contradiction of spatial elements, the shogunate innovation zone remained calm and did not make high-intensity use.

The low-density design of 5-7 floors is in harmony with the mountains and forests, and also makes way for the city skyline. All buildings are 100% designed and constructed in accordance with the green concept, and at the same time, roof photovoltaics, roof greening, etc., more than 75% of the ecological greenery, large flat floor pattern, detachable floor slab also fully consider the customized needs of enterprises. More than one merchant expressed his love for the quality of the carrier and the real estate environment in the first sentence during the inspection.

Urban renewal should especially respect the historical value of the area. Because of this, the new developed in the film should be developed with respect for the old. Spreading out the map of the “Two Bridges”, ecological reserves such as mountains, waters, and woodlands are almost immovable, and mature residential areas such as Chunjiang New Town can only be slightly renewed, and only one-third of the 21.4 square kilometers of space left for demolition and reconstruction are left. In addition, rivers and railways pass through the border, and the land ownership relationship is intertwined. The “two bridges” chose to dismantle one and build another.

In order to maintain the vitality of the development of the area, Nanjing’s urban renewal attaches great importance to exploring sustainable development models. The old industrial base, which once drove more than 500,000 Iveco, is still strong, and it is inseparable from the government’s new understanding and operation of the land plot – the industry is prioritized in a clear position, residential development accounts for only 30%, and the rest is used for commercial buildings and research and development carriers.
