I think it's a very interesting and beautiful building. Perhaps one of my favorites in Guangzhou yet I have never heard anything about it.
I had dinner in this building back in October 2010. Great views out the window, they have a huge wine rack/closet with some really expensive wines.

Dont know the name of that building, but I remember that it was one of the first in Zhujiang Xincheng (New CBD). The nearby buildings in the pic are of similair height but just right of the picture the buildings start to get a lot taller.

Guangzhou site fetches record
The Standard
Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Evergrande Real Estate Group (3333) bought a plot paying a premium of 170 percent yesterday, making it the most expensive site in Guangzhou.

China's third largest developer bought the site at 1.32 billion yuan (HK$1.61 billion) - 170 percent above the bid price set by the local land bureau.

Other property giants such as China Vanke and Poly Real Estate Group also submitted bids before bowing out.

The lot, with a site area of 9,570 square meters, is located in a booming new area of Guangzhou.

Market sources said Evergrande is set to develop it into a five-star hotel under its own brand. The gross floor area would be about 40,100 sqm.

Evergrande booked 10.37 billion yuan from contracted sales in May, a new monthly record for the firm.

China Vanke, the biggest listed real estate developer, also bought a 30,995 sqm site in Guangzhou for about 380 million yuan, or 3,680 yuan per sqm, at the same auction.

Meanwhile, home sales transactions in Guangdong added up to 22.5 million sqm of units in the first five months, down 12.4 percent year on year, according to the provincial bureau of statistics.

Developers in the province spent 23.8 billion yuan on land purchases in the first five months, up 0.5 percent year on year. Evergrande shares rose 0.2 percent to HK$4.61 yesterday.

S China city webcasts legislative meeting

GUANGZHOU, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Legislators in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong province, broadcast their recent meeting online for the first time in the city's history, highlighting the country's efforts to promote openness in government affairs.

The whole process of the fourth session of the Standing Committee of the 14th Guangzhou City People's Congress, which was held on Monday, was shown to the public in the form of webcast to provide netizens with access to learn about how the city's major decisions come about at the meeting.

Chen Jianhua, mayor of Guangzhou, reported on the government's work for the first half of the year and introduced a work plan for the second half during the meeting, which was webcast on the official website of the Guangzhou City People's Congress, as well as several other local websites.

Chen said construction on an expansion of the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport will begin next month, adding that plans will be made to build another airport in southern Guangzhou.

It was revealed at the meeting that construction on a seven-line subway network for the city has been approved by the National Reform and Development Commission.

All the relevant scripts were broadcast online for the first time, arousing many netizens' interest.

A netizen from Dayoo.com, a popular web portal in south China, said residents in Guangzhou learned that the government has tried its best to solve practical problems for them via the live broadcast of the meeting.

On the online message board, many netizen expressed their feelings and praised the move.

However, some people thought the content of the webcast could be more sound and concrete.

"We did not hear anything about the newly-issued policy on car registration restrictions on the online broadcast," said another netizen at Dayoo.com.

The city government announced on the night of June 30 that starting July it would only allow 120,000 passenger vehicles to be registered over a one-year trial period, during which only 10,000 licenses would be handed out each month. The policy has aroused heated discussion on the Internet and become one of the greatest concerns for Guangzhou residents.

Anyway, it is a useful exploration to webcast government meetings in order to fulfill the public's right to know, said Zeng Dexiong, a deputy to the Guangzhou City People's Congress.

"The public not only need the right to know but also need the right of freedom of speech," Zeng added.

"If the mayor can communicate with us or answer our questions online after the webcast, it would be perfect," said another netizen from the Dayoo.com.

Xu Ruoqing, another deputy to the Guangzhou City People's Congress, said that it was hard to spare some time for communication between government officials and the netizens when a meeting is going on, but at the sidelines of the meeting the government could try to launch some interaction with netizens to response to issues concerned by the public.

As Guangzhou City People's Congress only webcast the plenary session of the meeting, Qiu Yuhua, also a deputy, suggested that other panel sessions could be webcast to show the process of discussion on different policies to the public in order to further make government affairs known to the public.

The webcast of local legislative meeting in Guangzhou serves as a reflection of the Chinese government's implementation of the Constitution of the People's Republic of China, said Zhou Wei, assistant professor at the Law School of the Henan University of Economic and Law.

Guo Weiqing, a politics and public affairs professor at the Guangzhou-based Sun Yat-sen University, said the webcast showed that the government had made systematic progress.

Zhang Guifang, director of the Standing Committee of the Guangzhou City People's Congress, said the broadcast will help residents better understand the People's Congress system and make the government's work more transparent.

The Guangzhou City People's Congress will webcast 15 such meetings this year, Zhang added.

Guangzhou Opera House Awarded ‘Best Public Project’ in “Good Design Is Good Business” China Awards 2012

Guangzhou Opera House has been awarded ‘Best Public Project’ in “Good Design Is Good Business” China Awards 2012. The program honours architects and clients who work together to create projects that demonstrate the power of design to advance the goals of businesses, public agencies, and private organizations.

Like pebbles in a stream smoothed by erosion, the Guangzhou Opera House sits in perfect harmony with its riverside location. The Opera House is at the heart of Guangzhou’s cultural development. Its unique twin-boulder design enhances the city by opening it to the Pearl River, unifying the adjacent cultural buildings with the towers of international finance in Guangzhou’s Zhujiang new town.

I've mentioned about shoddy worksmanship on that structure before. I suspect the interiors would, or are already leaking.

Guangzhou car restrictions spark debate

GUANGZHOU, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's southern metropolis of Guangzhou began to limit car registrations through a license plate lottery and auction this week, triggering concerns over the fairness and validity of the policy.

In order to treat the worsening problems of traffic and air pollution, Guangzhou announced last month that it would allocate the city's annual 120,000 new car registration quota through the lottery and auction models.

A total of 5,640 applicants were awarded plates at Monday's lottery, and the average bid for a license plate for a private car stood at 22,822 yuan (3,622.54 U.S. dollars) after the auction on Tuesday.

Some celebrated the policy, calling it a timely remedy for the city's traffic woes, while others have complained that the restriction fosters inequality.

"Zhongchewang" wrote on Sina Weibo, a micro-blogging site, that the car restriction improves traffic at the expense of the people's rights to own and use cars.

"The license plate auction is a mechanism in favor of the better-off, which is unfair to ordinary consumers," wrote "Jinming."

Beijing ushered in the license plate lottery scheme in January last year, and Shanghai started the license plate auction in 2000.

The winning rate for Beijing's car registration lottery dropped to less than 2 percent in August, with more than 1.05 million applicants vying for only 19,926 plates.

The average bid for a plate in this month's auction in Shanghai was 62,559 yuan, up 4,400 yuan month on month.

Chen Rugui, deputy mayor of Guangzhou, said traffic congestion and the city's rapid growth in car ownership have forced the government to come up with the restriction.

In May, the city had a total of 2.405 million auto units, 2.5 times the number five years ago, marking an annual growth rate of 19 percent, according to the local government.

Meanwhile, many have also been critical about the effects the license plate lottery and auction will have on improving traffic.

"James1968" wrote on Sina Weibo that the lottery and auction policy is just a temporary solution, and the root cause of gridlock is flawed road planning and inefficient transportation management.

Wu Song, general manager of the passenger vehicle unit of the Guangzhou Automobile Group, said the most effective ways to improve traffic and air quality are to develop public transportation options and promote the use of low-emission cars.

Proponents of the lottery and auction policy argue that it is the easiest and most direct way for the government to address traffic problems for the time being, and the restrictions will have immediate effects.

Meanwhile, the local government of Guangzhou said it will also take other measures to improve the city's traffic issues.

Deputy Mayor Chen said the city plans to invest 270 billion yuan over the next four to five years to improve transportation infrastructure construction, in a bid to realize the goal of having 70 percent of the city's residents choosing public transportation options.

However, experts and industrial insiders have expressed concerns that the car restrictions will hit China's slowing auto industry.

Guangzhou's car sales expanded by about 330,000 units in 2011, but the sales volume will witness a sharp drop this year as the annual quota was set at 120,000 units.

Jia Xinguang, an independent auto industry analyst in Beijing, said, "The car restriction in Beijing has affected 3 percent of the growth in the amount of cars nationwide, and Guangzhou's restrictions will affect 1 percent. The car market will be squeezed if more cities follow suit."

Guangzhou is the fourth city to cap small passenger vehicle registrations after Beijing, Shanghai and Guiyang, and many experts suspect that more big cities will adopt similar measures in the future.

China outpaced the United States as the world's largest auto market in 2009. It is estimated that the planned production capacity of China's 30 major automakers will reach 40 million vehicles by 2015.

However, the country's auto industry growth has slowed on the heels of the country's economic slowdown. According to a report from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, in the first six months, sales of commercial vehicles slumped 10.4 percent from the same period in 2011, suggesting unusually weak industrial activity.

Chen Qingtai, a researcher with the Development Research Center of the State Council, said the country has entered an "auto era" and it should give some consideration to the auto industry when it makes blueprints for economic and social development.
