Guangzhou high-rise fire extinguished







GUANGZHOU, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- A high-rise building that was ablaze for over 11 hours in downtown Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province, was extinguished on Monday morning.

The fire was put out at about 6 a.m. after it burned through the 25-storey Jianye Mansion, an unfinished building on Qiyi Road, Xinhua reporters at the site said.

No casualties have been reported so far. Some 20 people, including workers inside the building and nearby residents, have been relocated, according to the municipal firefighting department.

The fire broke out at about 6:50 p.m. on Sunday.

A total of 58 fire engines and 350 firefighters were involved in putting the blaze out. They were hindered by heavy winds, according to the department.

Water from the fire engines could only reach the tenth floor, according to Xinhua reporters.

Construction of the building was suspended more than 10 years ago. It was being used as a storehouse for shoes and wooden boards, said Liang Xinyuan, a nearby resident.

Guangzhou mulls easing housing curbs
The Standard
Friday, December 27, 2013

The Guangzhou municipal government may consider gradually removing home-purchase restrictions from next year while boosting supply as price hikes narrow, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The municipal land resources and housing administrative bureau director, Li Junfu, admitted that excessive and over-rigid intervention in the property market contravened market-led objectives.

"Thus in 2014, we should progressively remove housing curbs and raise land and flat supply," Li said. The first-tier city's main focus next year would be to set long-term objectives, he added.

Also, home price hikes have narrowed this year especially after the "five rules" on home purchases were imposed by the central government, Li said. Between July and September, prices rose just 8 percent from a year before, compared to a 24.4 percent hike during the first three months of the year.

Guangzhou has set a minimum downpayment rate for second-home buyers and placed other restrictions on pricing, selling and buying a flat.

Minister of Housing and Urban-Rural Development Jiang Weixin, meanwhile, said restrictions on differentiated mortgage rates and purchases should be strictly executed in cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Cities where prices fell should focus on selling inventory flats and controlling construction, Jiang added.

^The locals have dubbed that the "nouveau riche coin" or 'crassy, rich circle'. It's in the suburbs, not the centre.

Thought this type of design has already been done? Recall there was one in Shenyang (and I saw one in Abu Dhabi)?

There is also a circle under construction in Madrid.

Personally, I wouldn't want to work or live in a circle building. They look a bit ridiculous.

Guangzhou airs plan to double its urban area
15 February 2014
South China Morning Post

Two rural counties to become city districts and see easier development, but analysts say new zoning not enough to regain competitive edge

Guangzhou will open more than 3,500 square kilometres to easier development under a rezoning plan that would nearly double the city’s urban area and increase government income.

Guangdong’s provincial capital would expand its urban boundaries by making two rural counties under its jurisdiction, Conghua and Zengcheng, full-fledged districts, according the Nanfang Daily, the government’s official mouthpiece.

Meanwhile, Luogang district would be absorbed into Huangpu district, leaving the city with 11 districts in all.

The plan would not change the city’s population, which stood at 15 million in 2011, but it would expand available urban land to 7,434 square kilometres from 3,843 square kilometres currently. Rural land is collectively owned and much harder to develop.

As urban residents, people living in Conghua and Zengcheng would enjoy increased minimum income subsidies and other benefits, but Guanzghou would assume control over development decisions.

“The rezoning will make co-ordination of transport and infrastructure planning, such as subways, more effective,” said Peng Peng , of the Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences.

“Now that Conghua and Zengcheng are directly part of Guangzhou, more Guangzhou residents will also be more willing to buy property there, which is good for reducing population density in downtown Guangzhou,” he said.

The city’s rezoning comes amid a broader urbanisation push by the central government, which is anticipating 390 million rural residents moving to urban areas by 2030.

Development resulting from Guangzhou’s rezoning could boost the local economy and provide the government with more revenue as it sells off land. The move may also help the city avoid losing more ground to fast-developing first-tier cities, like Beijing and Shanghai.

“In terms of developed city areas, Guangzhou is still way behind Shanghai, as much of Conghua and Zengcheng are still rural areas,” Peng said.

Shanghai had a population 24 million living in about 6,400 square kilometers as of 2012.

Ding Li , a planning expert at the Guangdong Academy of Social Sciences, said it would take more than rezoning to make the city more economically competitive.

“Guangzhou’s development relies mostly on property development and is weak in terms of industrial foundation,” Ding said. “It’s big in size, but it’s not as strong as Shanghai. It’s just a matter of time before other cities, such as Tianjin , overtake Guangzhou.”

Ding said more reforms were needed because Guangzhou was embarrassingly underdeveloped and could no longer rely on the economic model of the past three decades of increasing exports and foreign investment.

“Due to officials’ vested interests, there has been not much progress streamlining governmental functions and reducing the proportion of state-owned enterprises,” he said.

Guangzhou looks to open up more industries and improve transport network
22 March 2014
South China Morning Post

Guangzhou is stepping up efforts to upgrade its economy, with plans to open more industries to foreign investors and a big investment in improvements to the city's transport network this year.

The capital of Guangdong province, which is waiting for approval from Beijing to set up a free-trade zone in its Nansha district, is now compiling a list of the types of investment that would be excluded from such a zone.

Xiao Zhenyu, director general of Guangzhou's Bureau of Foreign Trade and Economic Co-operation, said yesterday that it was a step towards opening up some manufacturing and service sectors to foreign investors.

An official said some service industries, such as the medical, legal and education sectors, would first be opened up to Hong Kong and Macau professionals before being expanded to people from elsewhere.

Guangzhou is banking on co-operation with Hong Kong and Macau to reinforce development of its service industry, with Nansha positioned as the "bridgehead" to promote the co-operation, especially in the logistics sector.

"We have plans to further deepen our co-operation with Hong Kong companies regarding the integrated logistics services for home appliances," said Zhou Hai, deputy director general of Nansha's Bureau of Economy and Trade.

Logistics veterans in Hong Kong said the city was running out of warehouses to cater to growing retail sales, boosted by mainland tourists, and some logistics facilities or functions had to be migrated to other cities in the Pearl River Delta.

In a bid to promote Guangzhou's logistics and transport industries, two custom-bonded areas, in Nansha and at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, implemented simplified customs and clearance procedures last year.

The changes included waiving cargo inspections for goods that enter the customs-bonded area but not the customs control border, and are similar to those applied to the Shanghai free-trade zone.

Guangzhou will invest 109 billion yuan (HK$137 billion) this year in intercity railway and subway projects and the building of flats for those on low incomes. The city government has also kicked off construction projects to boost the vehicle, e-commerce and internet service sectors.
