The Taichung Gateway Park International Competition has been Re-Announced as of April 1st, 2011. The competition seeks out aggressive Landscape Architects to transform the former airport into a modern Eco-Park that will inform the future of Taichung’s urban landscape.
Taichung Gateway City covers an approximately 254-hectare area that includes the former Taichung (Shuinan) Airport and its vicinities. According to Taichung’s municipal urban plan, at the center of Taichung Gateway City will be an expansive green space—Taichung Gateway Park—that meanders from the north to the south of the entire development area with approximately 68-hectare.
Areas surrounding the park will be divided into four districts according to their features: Eco Residential District, Gateway District, Cultural Business District, and Innovation R&D District. In addition, Taichung Movie City, Taiwan Tower and Taichung City Cultural Center will all be integrated into Taichung Gateway Park. Therefore, the development of the park will become the most significant milestone for Taichung Gateway City.
The total construction budget is a proposed $85,000,000 USD with a set service fee of 10% for the chosen Design Team. For more information please visit the competition’s official website.
