AECOM’s scientific approach of Sustainable Systems Integration Model ( SSIMTM) has helped the NYDC to make a selection out of the three proposed alternate plans. The SSIMTM Approach measures the KPIs in four major categories: Connected Neighborhood, Workforce Environment, Sustainable Urban Structure, and Green Infrastructure.  "The proposed transactional zone between the existing villages and the new city development will provide a livable city and satisfy the sustainable development goals. AECOM’s vision of evolving the current villages into specific culture areas in the future adds a unique element to the city. The proposed social infrastructure and the creation of a cultural corridor aims to create the city’s identity and evoke a strong sense of belonging," says Pun. A Collaborative Effort  The master planning efforts were conducted in collaboration with other disciplines, especially with the traffic and transport planners (Oriental Consultants consortium) and the strategic flood risk assessment consultant (Royal HaskoningDHV Myanmar).

AECOM incorporated the flood risk consultant’s flood-resilient design in the master plan by using existing creeks as flood mitigation, proposing a network of dykes, and by providing a detention and retention area which can be used as public uses, contributing to the city’s social and environmental infrastructure.  AECOM’s smart city framework is based on how the city’s urban and social infrastructure can benefit from technology. This technical-based eco-system will satisfy the New Yangon City’s sustainable development goals, and will focus on transport, healthcare, economy, security, education, utilities and environment.  The endless efforts between AECOM, multiple consultants and NYDC’s Planning & Development team recently saw New Yangon City Master Plan shortlisted for the Best Planning Project under the Hong Kong Institute of Urban Design Awards.  Click here to view the NYDC Master Plan Summary Click here to view the NYDC Master Plan Infographics Source: NYDC IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Disclaimer Terms and Conditions Privacy Policy

  • 9. 6 New Yangon City Master Plan 1.1 Project Background Yangon (formerly known as Rangoon), the largest city in Myanmar is often recognized as the commercial center, ever since the capital moved to Naypyidaw in 2005. With a population of over 7.0million (Census 2014), Greater Yangon is several times larger than the next biggest city in Myanmar, Mandalay. It is anticipated that the city will continue to be the gateway of Myanmar in the foreseeable future. The country has seen an upsurge in tourism in the past two decades and needs to develop various sectors of the economy. Yangon will play a major role in this growth to attract companies and talent to its shores. Yangon will compete with other Southeast Asian cities in the region who have had a head-start in development. However, New Yangon has the advantage of starting with a cleaner slate and harness knowledge from lessons in the past decades. Keeping the country and city’s needs in the forefront, the planning for New Yangon City shall be based on a contemporary paradigm, adaptable & future- proofed, attractive to invest and serve as a catalyst for transformation in the region. The expansion of Yangon City across the river is a strategic initiative to introduce new development land for growth. Much of the recent expansions have been towards the north closer to the airport and in the northwest. This project would be a major push towards expanding in the west in phase 1 and thereafter in the south in phase 2. A comparison of areas and population of the other cities in the region illustrates that Yangon, with the addition of New Yangon, will be similar in area. The attractiveness of Yangon in the next few decades is expected to see the population grow to similar levels as cities shown here. It is imperative that the master plan of New Yangon is able to accommodate such a capacity without compromising on sustainability and livability of the built environment. The most critical aspect of the master plan for New Yangon is expected to be the implementation framework that allows extensive participation of the private sector in developing various facilities, amenities and public infrastructure (apart from industrial, housing and commercial areas). While some of gaps are expected to be filled by the public sector, it is imperative that the master plan framework, while allowing private enclaves, maintains a seamless public realm for physical and social connectivity in the New Yangon City. Future projects in Yangon, such as the Hantharwaddy Airport (Bago City) and proposed multi-purpose sea port in Kawhmu township, can be considered, which will influence the regional transportation network and connectivity. The additional port at Twantay Creek will have critical synergies with the existing and new industrial areas, impacting the need for logistics and transportation. New Yangon City will open new horizons for the Yangon and the country by unlocking its development potential and creating a unique position in the region and the world. We understand New Yangon City will have to fulfill the following key objectives: • Position Yangon as the ‘gateway’ of Myanmar establishing a unique identity for the city in the region and the world • Act as a catalyst for growth and transformation of Yangon into a City of the Future • Cater to the growing needs of industry, housing, and commercial space contributing to the growing economy of Myanmar • Integrate with and become a showcase for Myanmar’s rich cultural diversity and heritage New Yangon City is a major step towards the expansion of Yangon, which, while alleviating some pressure of the existing city, may create new development issues. At the onset, the issues surrounding urbanization and growth of cities will have to be addressed throughout the process of this project and further evolution of the master plan in later stages of the city. The master plan presents a pragmatic roadmap for initiating development of Phase I of New Yangon City. It lays down a framework of the city complete with public transportation and infrastructure. There is a significant amount of flexibility built into the plan to consider alternate alignments for internal roads, public transit, and land use, but within parameters of the plan that need to respect adjacencies, future traffic conditions, and carrying capacity of infrastructure. Future expansion of the city west of the outer ring road and south of Twantay Canal has been considered and incorporated into the fabric as well as connectivity requirements. It is acknowledged that projects and proposals in those area have not been firmed up, hence it is difficult to pin point exact requirements, however, future expansion in those areas will need to be aware of this master plan and its proposals, and integrate with the framework to develop a truly cohesive urban environment.
  • 10. 7New Yangon City Master Plan The area designated for this project is approximately 88.30sqkm (21819.41 acres) of land on the west bank of Yangon River, across from the existing Yangon city. AECOM Singapore Pte Ltd was appointed by the New Yangon Development Company Limited (NYDC) to prepare the Master Plan and Strategic Plan for the New Yangon City (NYC) in September 2018. AECOM worked closely with NYDC and relevant stakeholders for the duration of the project to deliver a comprehensive and strategic master plan. Concurrently, NYDC appointed consultants to advise on overall flood risk assessment and for transportation planning. Other consultants were appointed for environmental and social assessments. Prior to appointing AECOM, a socio-economic study was conducted for NYDC for advice on the target economic/ industrial sectors. The study advised on key considerations and strategies for the new city, and identified four key industrial sectors for early stages of the city – Garments, Furniture, Electronics, and Logistics. Most importantly, the study provided a roadmap for development of the master plan coining a tagline for the city – ‘Productive City, Liveable City’. The master plan, while adopting the principles, develops a spatial framework of development allowing for those goals, objectives, and industry sectors to thrive and prosper in NYC. The mission is to: ‘Establish New Yangon as a hub of growth and innovation at par with other cities in Southeast Asia by harnessing local potential based on international best practices.’ Some of the key goals of NYC include: • Create a future ready industrial ecosystem that allows for incremental growth towards higher-order sectors • The city should be home to over 900,000 jobs in fully built state which include primary, secondary, and tertiary sector jobs • The implementation framework should allow participation of private sector Myanmar Greater Yangon New Yangon City Area: 88 sqkm Location of Yangon City in Myanmar 1.1 Project Background
