Zhuhai location. Zhuhai borders Macau, geographically they form one single urban entity. Zhuhai's urban population is slighty above 1 million.

I don't like the design, very try hard. This is just a proposal though, hopefully the other proposals will be much better. I guess this building will be an iconic one, so i think the final design or proposals will have futuristic and/or unique cutting edge character as seen from the current one, something like shanghai tower and not something like pingan

haha a good old fashion height race. But Shanghai doesn't necessarily have to have the tallest in China. This and the Ping'an tower can resemble the "gateway" into the Pearl River.

十字门商务区作为珠海打造珠江西岸核心城市的重要举措及横琴新区启动项目,将致力成为粤港澳合作全新合作平台的高端服务业聚集平台,吸引了全球关注的目光。继十字门商务区影视评标和标志性构筑物“海之珠”的诞生之后,十字门商务区城市设计概念方案今日揭晓,HOK国际(亚太公司)的规划方案脱颖而出,拔得头筹。

本次城市设计招标自7月展开,吸引了国内外数十家专业规划设计公司参与竞标。经过资格初审,HOK国际(亚太公司)、RTKL国际(美国)、美国 NBBJ建筑设计事务所、英国ATKINS、英国RMJM PROFILE(罗麦庄马)、澳大利亚COX考克斯集团、日本株式会社矶崎新工作室等7家国际顶尖规划公司通过资格审查,进入到最终的方案评比。

在评标会上,每个竞标方案都实力不俗,充分结合十字门商务区地理环境特点及未来建成功能需求,体现出各公司不俗的规划实力。经由中国城市规划学会事理事长陈秉钊,中国城市规划设计研究院总规划师杨保军,深圳市城市规划设计研究院院长王富海,美国建筑师协会(AIA)会员、美国 Gensler公司都市规划和城市设计总监Michel St.Pierre,珠海市规划局副局长、兼任横琴分局局长彭治权等专业评委三轮激烈讨论和艰难取舍,最终HOK国际投标方案以领先澳大利亚COX考克斯集团一票的优势脱颖而出,成为最后的赢家。

HOK的方案,整体上充分考虑了基地山、海、城的融合,将其商贸、会展、居住、旅游等各项功能悉心规划,遵循逻辑,合理灵活的分布于各区块内,使高密度的开发与生态环境平衡并完美融合;在规划上,充分利用了基地现有滨水环境,并充分突出滨水型商务区这一主要特征;在利用基地现有水系的同时,还在基地南片区开拓人工岛创造更多的滨水用地,满足南区高密度的商务区开发;还实现了基地与周边空港、未来港珠澳大桥、新澳高速等交通枢纽的完美对接,便于人流的聚集和分散;景观上,充分考虑珠海与澳门之间的连接、商务区南北片区的连接,在沿水区域设置错落有致的景观带,使滨水生态特色完美体现;此外,还在南北片区设立足够高度的标志性建筑,与澳门观光塔隔岸相对交相辉映。

其中“南湾中心”作为十字门的商业启动区设置十万平米的会展场地,以行人优先,步行可达为主的交通规划便于临近的酒店、办公楼来往会场,并将开放空间延伸至滨水公园,周边综合使用功能全天候为区域及访客提供各项服务;“ 南湾山畔社区”为重视生活机能及居住环境的年轻人群打造高尚滨水人居,辅以各项生活配套;“横琴码头”片区将规划一系列多元的餐饮及零售空间,针对年轻的创业人士消费及互动,并配套滨水起居、私人游艇码头等,拥有绝佳沿水视野;“横琴中心 ”片区是十字门商务区的核心,位于专属的岛上,由水族馆、歌剧院作为“文化廊”南北端点,由一些列下沉文化、购物广场构成,并与轻轨车站紧密结合;“横琴滨水社区”片区东与澳门Cotai金光大道隔水相望,澳门风景尽收眼底,打造自成体系的滨水居住社区,拥有极佳的视觉景观和便利的交通条件。整个方案环环相扣,充分发挥了十字门商务区的地理优势,并在功能上促进产业结构优化和升级。

HOK国际创立于1955年,迄今在全球拥有24家分公司,项目遍及全球各大洲。HOK作为涉足多领域的建筑设计和城市规划的国际公司,在2008年世界建筑设计(BD World Architecture)公布的建筑设计事务所100强排名第3位。HOK所设计的项目多次获得美国建筑师协会(AIA)和美国景观建筑师协会(ASLA)奖项,由于关注于可持续发展设计,更多次获得环保及绿色工程类的设计殊荣,代表作则有大家熟悉的迪拜国际金融中心规划、俄罗斯圣彼得堡总体规划、香港启德机场重建规划等。
对于本次中标十字门商务区城市规划,HOK国际高级副总裁汤建城表示:“参与十字门商务区城市规划是HOK在2009年最重要的工作之一。凭借地接港澳的地理优势,加上横琴新区开发的政策优势,未来十字门商务区必将成为南中国的又一经济腾飞平台,充满了无限的潜力。这次规划对我们来说充满挑战。如何让高密度开发与生态环保相和谐、如何让CBD与周边交通大环境完美对接、如何让十字门商务区南北片区完美连接、如何考虑南片区亲水环境的充分利用、如何让商务区得到全面开发来满足全方位功能需求……这些规划难题让我们团队苦思了两个月,最终我们成功了!相信不久的将来,当我们的规划变成现实时,每个人都会由衷地爱上这里。”
面对记者的采访,来自美国的评委Michel St.Pierre说出了自己的看法:“这次参与竞标的7家公司都非常出色,本次评标会可以说是一场代表了世界顶端水平的城市规划峰会,相信建成后的十字门商务区一定会成为珠海的骄傲。”
紧随城市规划中标方案的出炉, 11月3日十字门商务区一期会展商务组团建筑设计方案也将呈现,十字门商务区在人们心中的形象越来越清晰。记者从十字门商务区建设控股有限公司工作人员处了解到,十字门商务区奠基庆典将于12月8日盛大举行,届时十字门商务区展示中心也将对公众开放,届时市民将有机会亲临展示中心现场,观看数控光影沙盘和全息投影成像技术呈现的规划及建筑效果。

thanks Zorg, so i guess the building can be seen from macau as well. BTW zorg, what is your view towards these proposed buildings? its just to give an idea about the location of the buildings right? i understand the shell shaped buildings, very original and has a lot of meaning, but the main building looks too much of a national performing arts centre in Beijing.

Looks like Zhuhai doesn't want to be the 'little town across the border from Macau' anymore.
