Atkins has been selected to design a transit-oriented development (TOD) master-plan along the new Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail (HSR) corridor, the first HSR project in Indonesia. Set for completion by 2019, the corridor will extend 142.3km, stimulating economic growth along the corridor while re-allocating traffic to de-congest the region.
The TOD masterplan will integrate smart planning, land value capture and development/station integration, with Atkins specifically covering "masterplanning, transit oriented development, architecture and urban design, landscape design and station integration for Halim and Manggarai areas."
Bertil de Kleynen, Atkins’ head of architecture in Asia Pacific said: “These TOD projects will support Jakarta’s national vision for sustainable development hubs around key transport links and incorporate positive social, cultural, economic, and community benefits for residents and visitors to the region. The project involves complex design challenges and we will address each development as a fresh challenge and provide design solutions tailored for the individual locations.”
Atkins has previously worked on other TOD projects; including the Cadre International TOD Centre (ITC), one of China’s first TOD projects, with 800,000 square meters of mixed use development; and the Meixi Lake TOD in Changsha for a population of 250,000.
