Overview

Cities across the world are racing to cope with rapid uncontrolled urbanisation. As quoted by United Nations, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a number that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. This dramatic rise in urban population necessitates reshaping the real estate landscape across the globe through Transit-oriented developments (TOD). 

TOD is a remedy for growing cities in the Asian region which to date have been characterised as unsustainable, car-dependent and transit-poor urban sprawl. TODs are seen as the road to sustainable growth. Cities now see transit as an investment for the future and realise its capability to promote economic development, enhance real estate value and increase favourable labour access.   A key aspect that developers need to focus on is creating a TOD that is not just easy to manage but enhances place making and ensures the right balance between transit, residential, retail, commercial and spaces for activities within the area.TODs should enable residents to live, play and work in the same area, making cities liveable. It is also important to integrate walkability in the TOD system. This includes convenient pedestrian connections and accessibility to a variety of transit stations and nearby neighbourhoods. This indirectly helps create sustainable cities. A seamless integration between transit, the surrounding mixed-use development and residential areas are crucial in creating a world class TOD.

marcus evans takes great pride in organising our flagship platform “Transit Oriented Developments” large scale conference whereby this conference is specially designed to meet all transit oriented development practitioners' demands to secure and guarantee their investments. This conference will cover various aspects of urban TOD planning and design as well as innovative development and technologies to maximise efficiency.
