Launched in July this year, the search for multi-disciplinary teams to develop a master plan for Jurong Lake District attracted submissions from 35 multi-disciplinary teams. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced today that it has shortlisted five out of the 35 teams to proceed to Stage 2 of the RFP exercise to develop a master plan for the District.
These teams consist of tie-ups between local and international firms with good track record in the fields of master planning, urban design, transport planning, architecture, infrastructure planning, landscape design, environmental sustainability and engineering, and urban logistics.
This marks another important step towards realising the vision of Jurong Lake District as a ‘District of the Future’ and our second Central Business District.
The five teams scored the highest for their track record and quality of their submitted statement of planning and design intent and approach. The statements set out the direction and strategies the teams intend to take in developing the Concept Master Plan for Jurong Lake District, as well as their analysis of key constraints and challenges for the area and how these could be overcome. Through these statements, teams demonstrated their understanding of the requirements, master planning issues, challenges and opportunities in Jurong Lake District.

Moving on to Stage 2
In Stage 2 of the RFP, shortlisted teams will spend 10 weeks to develop and submit their Conceptual Master Plan and Proposals for Jurong Lake District by end 2016. Please refer to Annex B [PDF, 65kb] for the required components of the Conceptual Master Plan.
An evaluation panel comprising senior representatives and practitioners from government agencies, academia and industry will be convened to assess the five proposals and select one of the teams as the appointed consultant by January 2017.
Following that, the appointed consultant will work with URA and relevant agencies to draw up a detailed Master Plan proposal for Jurong Lake District. There will be an exhibition of the proposal in 2Q2017 to gather public feedback.
The appointed consultant will then work with URA and relevant agencies to consider the feedback from all stakeholders and refine the plans, before submitting final detailed proposals for the Jurong Lake District.
