International Call for Competition Entries: Urban Design of Haiyan High-speed Railway New City and Conceptual Architectural Design of Key Areas
1. Project Background
(1) Implement the national strategy of the Yangtze River Delta and build an important node in the south wing of Hongqiao
In order to further support the national strategy for the development of regional integration in the Yangtze River Delta, the State Council formally approved the “Overall Plan for the Construction of Hongqiao International Open Hub”, clarifying that by 2035, the Hongqiao International Open Hub will be fully built into the “one core and two belts” functional layout, which will become a promotion. An important carrier for the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta, improving my country’s opening-up level, and strengthening the new advantages of international competition and cooperation.
Haiyan High-speed Railway New City will become a hub site connecting Sujia-Ningbo high-speed rail, Shanghai-Pingyan Intercity Railway, and Haiyan Intercity Railway of Hangzhou-Haizhou Intercity Railway. At the same time, it will rely on a series of seaport intermodal facilities such as surrounding coastal ports, inland waterways, and sea-river intermodal transport operation areas to achieve “inter-bay connectivity , County-level interoperability”. Haiyan will rely on its own historical culture, industrial resources, and transportation conditions to build an important fulcrum for the south-south expansion belt of the Hongqiao International Hub, focusing on building an international business district with cultural characteristics and tourism functions, a digital trade innovation development zone, and a new river, river, and air transport. platform.
(2) Coordinating the core resources of the regional industry and building a hub engine for the integrated station and city
As the core hub of Haiyan, the new high-speed rail city is conveniently connected to the four cities of Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Ningbo, and is multi-track interoperable with the Jiaxing Economic Development Zone. It will coordinate and revitalize major industrial sectors internally, and vigorously promote regional industrial transformation and energy level improvement； integration for a thousand years Major cultural tourism platforms such as Ancient City, Sunac Cultural Tourism City, and Nanbei Lake Future City have vigorously enhanced regional cultural characteristics and tourism functions. As Haiyan’s recent key construction of the station-city integrated strategic area, the high-speed rail new city will also become the core hub and development engine of Haiyan’s new era development.
(3) Carry forward the historical civilization of the thousand-year-old city and build a unique gateway image of Haiyan
The high-speed rail new city is closely connected with the ancient city of Haiyan. It has inherited the historical marks of the port, ancient temples, and moats of the thousand-year-old city. It has gathered cultural resources such as world cultural heritage, Chinese classical gardens, and celebrities’ former residences. The birthplace of Bang Culture, Songze Culture and Liangzhu Culture. The high-speed rail new city has a unique cultural heritage, and will cooperate with the overall style of the high-speed rail new city and the thousand-year-old city to build a unique gateway to Haiyan.
2. Project Site
Haiyan lies 118 kilometers away from Shanghai and 98 kilometers away from Hangzhou. Additionally, it is less than a hundred kilometers away from the cities of Suzhou and Ningbo. It is connected to the Yangtze River Delta by the ring-shaped highway network composed of the Hangpu Expressway, Shenhai Expressway, Changtai Expressway, and Zhajiasu Expressway 1. The circle indicates a residential area with a one-hour or less travel time to Haiyan, and is the core area of integration for the Yangtze River Delta.

Haiyan High-speed Rail New City has outstanding regional transportation advantages and is interconnected with major urban agglomerations in the Yangtze River Delta. The area takes the high-speed railway station as the core hub, forming a “cross + radial” rail transit network by the Tongsu-Jiaong-Ningbo high-speed railway line, the Shanghai-Pingyan Intercity Railway, and the Haiyan Intercity Railway of Hangzhou-Haizhou Intercity Railway.

In Haiyan County, the high-speed rail new city area has formed a road skeleton of “highway + expressway”, which has significant advantages in external traffic. The current base includes G525 (East West Avenue), Huancheng South Road, Baichi Road, Xinqiao Road, etc. It is planned to have Yingbin Avenue, Binhai Avenue, etc., and is only 2 kilometers away from the nearest Nanbei Lake. Through the main framework of the “two horizontal and four vertical” highways and high-speed interconnection, the high-speed rail area is convenient to connect with the Hangpu Expressway and Shenhai Expressway.
