THE NEW QUEZON CITY CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT: Triangle Park - DOWNTOWN HUB DISTRICT PDF Print E-mail


DOWNTOWN HUB DISTRICT
Size and Location: Downtown hub is 58.46 hectares in size and is bounded on the northeast by North Avenue, east by the Commons District and Elliptical Road, the southeast by East Avenue and southwest by Agham and BIR roads.  At present, the District is characterized by mostly institutional uses.  Notable in the area are its many medical institutions like the Philippine Children's Hospital, Lung Center, the National Kidney Institute and other national government institutions such as the Bangko Sentral mint, Bureau of Internal Revenue, and Pagasa weather bureau.

Accessibility: Accessible through East Avenue, Quezon Avenue and BIR Road.Land Use and Design: The Downtown Hub is "a mixed use, medium-density district with institutional services and facilities (medical, education, training, science, etc.) integrated with commercial and residential developments."  The District concept is to create a mixed-use, medium-density, institutional/residential/ commercial community that complements the adjacent parks and open spaces of the Commons District and the Quezon Memorial Circle.  The Downtown Hub is encouraged to have horizontal mixed uses so as to be compatible with the less dense intensity and larger blocks and lots.  Single-use buildings are combined in one planned development.  However, the buildings along the Main Access Road are encouraged to be vertical, mixed-use structures.

Sub-districts:  The District is further subdivided into the Healthcare, Civic, Parkway and Park Sub-districts.  The Healthcare sub-district consists of the block above the main entrance spine from East Avenue.  This is where Medical Centers such as the Lung Center and Kidney Institute have clustered. The sub-district is also adjacent to the Philippine Heart Center and East Avenue Medical Center located just across East Avenue.  The Parkway sub-district consists of the Mixed-Use retail uses along the main spine that passes through the various districts. The Park sub-district consists of the mixed- use residential areas just between Agham Road and the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife.  The Midtown sub-district encompasses the western flank of the Downtown Hub District along BIR Road and contains mixed-use institutional uses.  The hierarchy and network of urban spaces within Downtown Hub begin with the Entrance Gateways along four (4) main entrance gateways: East Avenue, North Avenue, BIR Road and Agham Road.  These terminate at the Downtown Hub District Greens which serve as focal point and landmark.  Creek linear park in the North Triangle connects the Downtown Hub green and the Commons District to the Emporium/Triangle Exchange District.Density and Floor Area Ratios:  In contrast to the Triangle Exchange and Emporium Districts, blocks are larger at approximately 100m x 100m and setbacks are allowed to enhance the park-like feel.  Only the Parkway containing Mixed Use Retail on its ground level has no setbacks.   FAR ranges from 4.5 to 5 decreasing from Agham/BIR Roads to Elliptical Road.  Building heights range from 10 to 15 storeys in similar decreasing fashion.  A population of 2.25 million persons is intended for the District at the end of the 20-year horizon.
