Presenting our downtown regeneration masterplan for a brownfield / ex-industrial site in central Tashkent, Uzbekistan, alongside the Salar Canal.

Presenting our downtown regeneration masterplan for a brownfield / ex-industrial site in central Tashkent, Uzbekistan, alongside the Salar Canal. We proposed a diverse mix of residential typologies supported by commercial, community and cultural uses, amounting to 325,000 sq/m (3.5m sq/ft) of floor space on a 20 hectare site, with an average height of 8 storeys and a gross FAR of 1.625. The resulting population was approximately 10,000 residents (with approximately 9 sqm of useable open / green space per person), as well as a daily transient population, all catered for by a mix of parking solutions and public transport connectivity.



Different quarters of the masterplan were branded as sub-neighbourhoods in their own right, which would also stand as the phasing strategy for the project, each named as : (i) Eastern Mews (ii) Central Park East (iii) Central Park West (iv) Canalside Heights (v) Community Quarter and (vi) The Boulevard. The architectural approach varied from one sub-neighbourhood to another based on land-use mix, estimated cost per sqm, and site context / adjacencies.


A great effort in a short time frame by the Cross Works design team (responsible for urban design, architecture and landscape) and visualisation support from SNT visual.
