Urban Planning Society of China （ the undertaker ） is commissioned by Jiangyin Municipal Natural Resources and Planning Bureau （ the organizer ） to launch this open international solicitation activity for the Strategic Planning and Conceptual Urban Design of Xiakewan Science City （ hereinafter referred to as “this solicitation activity” ）。The relevant matters are hereby announced as follows.
一、徵集目標 I.Solicitation Objectives
江陰市（ 簡稱“澄” ）地處長江之濱、無錫市北翼、上海大都市圈西部，是長江經濟帶上一座重要的現代濱江花園城市，是“蘇南模式的樣板區”，近20年來一直處於全國縣域經濟發展的領先地位。錫澄協同發展區是無錫市加快推進“錫澄一體化”戰略的重要抓手，承擔著“國家內生型科技創新園、國家級智能製造產業園、錫澄遊憩休閒的後花園、錫澄保育安全的生態園、大無錫綜合服務副中心”等五個方面重要職責。
Jiangyin City （ “Cheng” for short ） is located on the bank of the Yangtze River, the north wing of Wuxi City, and the west of the Shanghai Metropolitan Area. It is an important modern riverside garden city on the Yangtze River Economic Belt and a model area of Southern Jiangsu Model. Over the past 20 years, it has been in a leading position in the country’s county economic development. The Xicheng Cooperative Development Zone is an important starting point for Wuxi City to accelerate the Xicheng （ Wuxi-Jiangyin ） Integration strategy. It carries five important functions of National Endogenous Science and Technology Innovation Park, National Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park, Xicheng Recreation and Leisure Back Garden, Xicheng Ecological Conservation and Safety Park, and Wuxi’s Sub-centre of Comprehensive Service.
霞客灣科學城位於錫澄協同發展區的中部區域，是錫澄協同發展區核心區和錫澄生態綠心的重要組成部分，也是錫澄協同發展區的率先啟動區（ 全部位於江陰市境內 ）。霞客灣科學城南向緊鄰無錫惠山新城，內部擁有霞客灣（ 規劃 ）、馬鎮濕地、徐霞客故居等生態和文化資源，無錫市域軌道S1線沿霞客大道貫穿南北，生態、文化和區位等綜合條件優越。
Xiakewan Science City is located in the central area of the Xicheng Cooperative Development Zone. It is an important part of the core area of the Xicheng Cooperative Development Zone and the Xicheng Ecological Green Core. It is also the start-up area of the Xicheng Cooperative Development Zone （ all located in Jiangyin City ）。Xiakewan Science City is adjacent to Wuxi Huishan New City to the south; it has ecological and cultural resources such as Xiakewan Bay Area （ under planning ）， Mazhen Wetland, and Xu Xiake’s former residence; the rail transit Line S1 of Wuxi City runs through Xiake Avenue from north to south. The ecological, cultural and location conditions of Xiakewan Science City are superior.
Xiakewan Science City undertakes the important responsibilities of Jiangyin to implement the strategic requirements of regional collaborative innovation, accelerate integration into the global science and innovation system, and participate in the global division of science and innovation. It is an important link for Jiangyin to connect to the Taihuwan Science and Technology Innovation Belt and build the “first island chain”: It also undertakes the important historical mission of accelerating Jiangyin’s comprehensive integrated reform, high-quality development, and high-level innovation, it is an important strategic space for Jiangyin’s future construction of a nationally influential industrial science and technology innovation centre.
In order to grasp the new trend of global technological innovation and seize the new opportunities of the domestic and international “dual circulation” development pattern, Xiakewan Science City will integrate and utilize the advantageous resources of Jiangyin, Wuxi and even the whole country to optimize the ecological environment quality, gather high-end high-quality elements, highlight regional cultural characteristics, and strengthen infrastructure support under a higher level, in more dimensions, and from broader perspectives, building a first-class domestic industry-university-research innovation platform, attracting innovative talents from all circles of life, laying out major scientific and technological innovation infrastructure, and becoming a “Future Technology City, Green Ecological City, Smart and Interconnected City, Young and Fashionable City”.
To this end, the International Solicitation for Strategic Planning and Conceptual Urban Design of Xiakewan Science City is now held. Based on the principles of openness, justice, and fairness, we sincerely invite excellent domestic and foreign design and consulting institutions with rich experience to participate in this activity and propose first-class planning and design schemes, broadening ideas, applying advanced planning and design concepts and development strategies, to build a high-quality, international Xiakewan Science City.
