Liveable Hi-Density Cities ~ Singapore Principles

Earlier in 2013, the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) released their joint publication 10 Principles for Liveable High Density Cities: Lessons from Singapore spotlighting lessons from...
"...Singapore’s successful urbanization
experience -- despite its population density, the city-state has consistently ranked favorably in various surveys measuring the liveability and sustainability of cities around the globe. [...] Each of the 10 principles in the publication reflects Singapore’s integrated model of planning and development, which weaves together the physical, economic, social and environmental aspects of urban living."
The ten principles are:
  1. Plan for long-term growth and renewal 
  2. Embrace diversity, foster inclusiveness 
  3. Draw nature closer to people
  4. Develop affordable, mixed-use neighbourhoods
  5. Make public spaces work harder 
  6. Prioritise green transport and building options
  7. Relieve density with variety and add green boundaries
  8. Activate spaces for greater safety
  9. Promote innovative and non-conventional solutions
  10. Forge “3P” (people, public, private) partnerships
But not everyone buys their analysis or promo graphics...
