Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s Baietan Master Plan Awarded
The San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects has recently honored Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's Baietan Master Plan with a 2011 Merit Award for Urban
Design.

The Baietan Master Plan addresses a 35-square kilometer portion of the Southern Chinese Pearl River Delta that stretches between the city of Guangzhou, with its 10.3
million inhabitants, and city of Foshan, a smaller city of 5.4 million people. Growth in the Delta region has allowed the two cities to begin to merge into one mega region.
Led by SOM Planning Director Ellen Lou, the design team created a distinct, diverse, and sustainable neighborhood identity that respected its waterfront location and the
intrinsic qualities of local “Lingnan” culture.

The Plan differentiated itself through its unprecedented level of detail, specifying the dimensions for attributes of individual parcels, including lighting, street furniture, taxi
drop-offs, crosswalks, and pedestrian bridges. Another important differentiator of the Plan involved a strategy for maintaining the region’s “urban villages” — an important
contributor to the Delta’s social fabric.

In the summer of 2010, the City Government of Guangzhou accepted the Baietan Master Plan. SOM’s Plan will guide ongoing implementation of the project over the next
several years. The design team is honored to have had the opportunity to inform this development while sensitively addressing the issues of urbanization that characterize
today’s China.

The interdisciplinary SOM team included Landscape Architect Hargreaves Associates, Transportation Planner CHS Consulting, Economic Consultant CBRE, Sustainability
Infrastructure Consultant Sherwood Design Engineers, Local Planning Consultant Guangzhou UPDS (Urban Planning Design Studio), and Brownfield Consultant ICF Jones
& Stokes.

In the first 2 renders, there is another skyscraper behind this building. It looks to be ~1400 feet tall!

Looks like this is the area where I stayed during my visit to Guangzhou. Does that mean it will have to go and give the place for the new development or will some of it be preserved? I'm sure there are some heritage buildings at the riverside near that supertall tower.

I have some photos of the area in my Guangzhou thread (the first few posts). It's all just near where that supertall tower is meant to be located. I really wonder if all of that will have to go just like that? It's such a lovely place!

Its most likely some of the riverside building will be preserved sort like The Bund in Shanghai.

I doubt they are gonna preserve the buildings we can see in your pictures. Those constructions, bar mostly, are recently build and cannot be compared to the Bund in Shanghai.

There are though some Lingnan (local culture) style constructions in the entire area that will be preserved.

This tower is going to look amazing. I hope they go with the original design.

Btw, is it possible for foreigners to buy land in China yet?

Are Suning reliable developers? What other projects were they in charge of?

They're a big developer, a slow one since they take ages till they start anything, but quite reliable anyway.

Plus several 200m+ towers coming in Nanjing, Chengdu and some second tier cities I fail to remember now.

reliable developer or not, doesnt make a difference for now since its a rather long term proposal. i think the design and stuff will change a lot before this starts. i cant see many supertalls going up in that region right now, the demand is still higher in the guangzhou cbd and this area isnt the most important one now i guess.

I know there is slow progress right now, but the CBD is slowly progressing and going through the planning stages. I've seen brief mentions in passing on the Chinese subway forums about the transit and zoning plans as they continue to work to get approval for all the projects. Once Line 11 construction gets underway in 1 or 2 years, that should really get things moving in the area.

^ Yes indeed it is. Line 11 will interchange with Line 1 at Fangcun and Line 1 Guangfo in Shachong.
