I. Brief Account of Projects
As a megapolis of central China, Wuhan is a strategically important city connecting economy between the east and the west, the south and the north. It is a commercial and distribution center, important industrial base, regionally financial center as well as science and education center. To establish Wuhan CBD (Wuhan Wangjiadun CBD) is not only an important measure to carry out our country’s strategic policy “to accelerate the development of central China and promote the growth of the central China”, but also a necessary requirement as Wuhan functions strategically as the “bellwether” and “propeller” for the economical and social development of central China.
Conforming to the objective development trend, Wuhan municipal Party committee and municipal government made the timely strategic decision to establish CBD. In January 2003, in the government work report at the first meeting of Wuhan 11th people’s congress, Mayor Li Xiansheng suggested that “Wangjiadun CBD” be established at the former Wangjiadun airport. From that time onwards, the construction of Wuhan CBD started.
Wuhan CBD is constructed according to the guiding thought “high starting point, high standard, high efficiency, high grade” proposed by the municipal Party committee and municipal government. World-famous McKinsey and Pricewaterhouse Coopers had been successively engaged to conduct the strategic planning and financial feasibility study. China Academy of Urban Planning and Design, Britain Atkins, America EDAW had been engaged to conduct the planning and study on the three subjects about comprehensive function, transportation and landscape. Internationally well-known America SOM Design Office, Germany Obermeyer Design and Consulting Company, Australia DESIGNINC and ANS, Britain Atkins Consulting Co., Ltd and China Academy of Urban Planning and Design were engaged to collect the planning schemes for Wangjiadun CBD. Jones Lang LaSalle was engaged to write Developing Strategies and Project Proposal for the Booster Sector of Wuhan CBD. Ultimately, Wuhan Urban Planning & Design Research Institute completed the Comprehensive Planning Scheme for Wangjiadun District and Wangjiadun CBD, which had been examined and approved by the municipal Party committee and municipal government. According to the construction plan for Wuhan CBD, the control detailed planning will be completed by March 2005. And the construction will start formerly towards the end of 2005.
