SHENZHEN | CITIC Financial Centre | 300m | 984ft | Prep

Rocco Design Architects Limited to design HQ of CITIC Securities Company Limited

Rocco Design Architects has been announced as the winner of an invited competition to design the new headquarters for CITIC Securities Company Limited in Shenzhen. Located on the western gateway to Shenzhen Bay, the mixed-use development comprises 241,000 sq m of space on a 50,770 sq m site.

The CITIC Financial Centre will blend office units, conference facilities, hotel accommodation, and residential apartments across a single high-rise tower and two slab blocks. The frontal slab block slopes smoothly down towards Shenzhen Bay, providing views across the harbour to those in the uppermost storeys.

Rocco Design Architects’ winning concept takes into consideration Shenzhen’s development and urban planning, recognising elements such as building height, generation of public spaces, and three-dimensional greenery.

“On the other hand,” the team says in a design statement, “the centre seeks to convert the sophisticated content to an interaction between the simple form and space. This provides a versatile spatial framework cater to ever-changing functional needs.”

Green terraces line the rooftops of the sloping slab blocks, providing accessible landscaped spaces for relaxation and socialising across three varied heights. These areas are connected by a vertical green wall and mid-air garden.

The practice was selected through a three-stage invited competition held under the supervision of the Shenzhen Planning Bureau.

oh, it is close to shenwan, i thought it was closer to Houhai, so i was a bit confused why they didn't add the designs, but for Shenwan that all makes sense. But this is not part of the Shenwan masterplan or is it?

Yes, indeed. Taller than expected, and hopefully 300m+.

The final hight is 300m, likely with this design (http://biz.xinmin.cn/2014/09/27/25513250.html):
Additionally the link above is saying that the ground breaking ceremony was yesterday, on gaoloumi they posted this picture:

So it could be site preperation by now.

the model shows these three towers, from the old list by Scion:

DU03-02: 250m
DU03-04: 300m
DU05-03: 300m to 400m

the two DU03 plots indeed look like the same size now and since the right one is still just a concept box, it seems likely they put it the concept height as well.

Why isn't anybody moving this thread? Is the source for the hight not reliable?

~70 floors really hope it will be supertall, with the bad luck lately of thought supertalls ending up being ~290m, Shenzhen really reserves this one being taller than expected!

It's entirely unrelated to that weird shaped vision from the Shenwan thread? Or are they going to build individual towers instead of that interconnected cluster now?
