応募資格 Architects and Landscape architects to assemble a multi-disciplinary Design Team

Description
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) invites architects and landscape architects to assemble a multi-disciplinary Design Team and provide consultancy services to develop a Concept Master Plan and Concept Proposals for the Rail Corridor Project in Singapore.

The Rail Corridor is a 24-kilometre long former railway line that stretches from the north to the south of Singapore. This train line, known formerly as the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Railway Line, connected Singapore to the neighbouring country of Malaysia in the north. The southernmost terminal station of the KTM line was located in Singapore at the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (TPRS) which is located next to the Central Business District. The last train left TPRS on 30 June 2011 and the land occupied by the KTM Line was returned to the Singapore government on 1 July 2011. The TPRS station building is now designated as a National Monument by the Preservation of Sites and Monuments (PSM).

The Rail Corridor as it now stands is without most of its tracks, sleepers and railway equipment. It has become a stretch of greenery; a “green corridor”, that stands out as an informal public space in contrast to the dense urban developments in other parts of Singapore. It weaves through diverse landscapes, linking high-density public housing estates with pockets of private housing, business parks, industrial areas, nature reserve, parks and land that have yet to be developed.

Since the return of the land, the public has shown widespread interest in the future plans for the Rail Corridor. The URA has engaged the public extensively over the past few years to gather views and feedback on the Rail Corridor through various platforms. The feedback and ideas received have been distilled into the Planning and Design Goals that forms part of the Request for Proposals (RFP) brief.

The RFP titled “Rail Corridor – An Inspired and Extraordinary Community Space” presents a unique opportunity for design professionals to work with URA and stakeholders to master plan, design and transform the Rail Corridor into a continuous and endearing public space to be enjoyed by Singaporeans and visitors.
