China Daily

The construction of a new 5-billion-yuan plant of Japanese carmaker Suzuki's joint venture with Chang'an Automobile Group recently kicked off in Chongqing and it is scheduled to start production in 2013.

With initial yearly capacity of 150,000 cars and the same number of engines, the plant is designed to make 250,000 cars and 300,000 engines a year when fully completed in 2015.

The joint venture sold more than 180,000 vehicles in China in the first 10 months. But Suzuki still lags far behind its Japanese counterparts in the country, although it started business in the country in 1993.

Recent media reports said that Chang'an was asking its Japanese partner to introduce more new models and accelerate local production and R&D.

Chongqing Chaotianmen
Chongqing, China,
Located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jailing rivers, the site for this mixed-use project is imbued with a significance that is immediately symbolic. The foremost of Chongqing’s traditional city gates (the Chaotian Gate, or “gate to heaven”), where emperors carried out the ceremonies of diplomatic greeting, it has long been a historical landmark. As the city’s initial dock area on the Yangtze, it also represents the great tradition of the shipping highway, which has stoked this major inland city’s development and now drives its evolution as one of China’s most important modern cities. The design for the project to be situated at this gateway is generated by the image of powerful sails upon the water. The outer facades of the project’s six towers—the transparent surfaces that will face the water to the north—are meant to recall a fleet of ancient Chinese ships, with their huge rectangles of white canvas filled by the wind. This image is recognizable in its simplicity, yet iconic in its form. In addition to serving as an outward-facing gateway symbol, the project also has a strong presence in forming the apex of the city’s peninsula. The south-facing facades—the inside of the arc of towers—look back to the city in a gently embracing way, covered by green hanging gardens that meet the ground at a podium roof level that is itself a green amphitheater “park” of gardens, pools, and public circulation. This park area gently rises to the north, framing views to the water between the towers—which will house residences, offices, and a hotel—and maximizing views of the project itself from the city. Underneath the park level, the podium consists of five levels of public program, including retail and cultural facilities, as well as hubs for land and water transportation. The two central outer towers, directly facing the rivers’ convergence to the north, are the project’s tallest structures (348 meters above flood plain; 77 floors each), with the central axis of the project proceeding back from between them, toward the city. Tucked immediately within the two tallest towers, extending the arc, are four shorter towers (each with 62 floors), across which runs an exterior, connecting garden that hovers 248 meters in the air. In addition to linking these four towers—two of which are office space (and actually “twin” stepped segments of the two larger, central towers), and two of which are residential—the garden echoes the amphitheater park far below and creates a dramatic viewing platform that optimizes this site’s unique views back to the rest of Chongqing. Within the garden level’s hull is a full floor of hotel lobby, restaurants, and clubs. Above are gardens and pools. The remaining two (freestanding) towers, which complete the prow-like arc of six, are residential, each 57 floors tall, making for a project total of 302,000 square meters of prime living units.
Project Type: Mixed Use

CapitaLand Adds Chongqing Property to China Assets

SINGAPORE—CapitaLand Ltd., Southeast Asia's largest property developer by market value, will jointly develop a mixed-use property project in China estimated to cost about 4.1 billion Singapore dollars (US$3.15 billion).

The project in southwestern Chongqing city will comprise residential, retail, office and hotel properties with a total gross floor area of 817,000 square meters, CapitaLand said Tuesday.

The consortium, which includes CapitaMalls Asia Ltd. and Singbridge HoldingsPte. Ltd., was awarded the 91,783-square-meter site for about S$1.28 billion in a tender that closed Monday, it said, adding that the project—to be built over five years—will be funded with debt and equity.

CapitaLand sees the project as part of its plan to grow its key China market, which comprises about 35% of its total assets, group Chief Financial Officer Arthur Lang said at a news briefing. "In the next three to five years, if you look at our asset composition, China will end up between 42%-45% of total assets," he said.

Nonetheless, the group has seen credit costs rise in China as a result of Beijing's attempts to temper a buoyant property market.

The project in southwestern Chongqing city will comprise residential, retail, office and hotel properties with a total gross floor area of 817,000 square meters.

"The availability of credit is still there but it has gotten a little bit more expensive," Mr. Lang said. "In the past, we would have gotten probably a 10% discount to the [People's Bank of China] reference rate; now we're getting probably a 10% premium to PBOC."

The group also expects China to keep its tightened stance on the property market well into 2012. "It won't happen so soon, but policy is likely to change any time from the second half of next year," Chief Operating Officer Lim Ming Yan said at the news briefing.

CapitaLand and its 65.5%-owned shopping-mall developer CapitaMalls Asia will collectively hold a 50% stake in the Chongqing development, with Singbridge, a wholly owned unit of Singapore state-investment company Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd., holding 30%. The remainder is held by unnamed investors.

They're always nice to know. Remember you know about Chaotianmen twin tower rumor since 2008.

An article from SCMP about CQ. It seems like CQ is more important than I originally thought, not just for inland China, but also for whole of China.

Quote:
Chongqing rising

Eric Li argues that the success of one inland region's socialist experiments to advance the residency system, tackle corruption and open up its market will pave the way for China's next stage of development

PUBLIC POLICY INNOVATION

Dec 01, 2011

A quiet revolution is happening in China's hinterland. If you think China's rise in the past 30 years has changed the world, you haven't seen anything yet.
Breakneck growth has lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty and transformed a poor agrarian society into a global industrial powerhouse in one generation. Yet, the world's second-largest economy is now at a crossroads. Its spectacular success has also brought a large wealth gap and widespread corruption that threaten the sustainability of its development and social cohesion.


There are two Chinas: the coastal regions built on export-driven growth and the grossly underdeveloped larger inland regions. Will China continue its current trajectory and become a major global power, as America did? Or will it languish in an ever-widening divide between the haves and the have-nots with the latter dragging down the former?


The answer may be found in the mountainous and, until recently, one of the most underdeveloped regions in China's west. In merely half a decade, the municipality of Chongqing has become a major laboratory of public policy innovation. Three large-scale policy experiments interwoven by one revolutionary idea - growth with equity - are fast transforming this region. These experiments in urbanisation, social fairness and market economics are based on unmistakably Chinese values.


Urbanisation is taking place at a speed and scale unprecedented even by China's standards. Of the 32 million inhabitants of Chongqing, only 12 million are registered as city dwellers. Unlike the coastal regions that were mostly already urban at the beginning of economic reform, Chongqing's demographic is a mirror image of China at large.


In 2008, a rural land exchange was set up. The exchange now allows farmers to turn their farmhouses back to arable land in exchange for cash from developers who buy the square footage in the form of additional quotas for urban development. So far, US$1.5billion worth of transactions have taken place.


Overall, about two million people have been registered as urban residents. Another million are expected to make the transition within a year. A total of seven million are projected to take up urban residency by 2020, taking the urbanisation rate to 60per cent. What is more remarkable is that this demographic shift is taking place without the loss of arable land.


The government has also stepped in to ensure the welfare of those at risk of being left behind, by building 430million sq ft of low- income housing.


The biggest impact has come from Chongqing's pioneering of a system that grants new city dwellers the much-coveted urban residency status and its accompanying education and health care benefits five years after taking up city residence. In one fell swoop, the most intransigent structural divide, the hukou system, is at last being breached.


To attack corruption, the government began with the hardest nut to crack - the pharmaceutical industry in the public health sector. A computerised procurement system has been built for use by all public hospitals. Their drug purchases can be viewed openly by the public, real-time, with names of suppliers and unit prices. This programme is helping to regain public trust.


Open market economics forms the third pillar of Chongqing's development. In 2007, only 25per cent of its gross domestic product was generated by the private sector. Today, that figure is 60per cent. This remarkable growth has in part been fuelled by microfinance. As state banks concentrate their lending to state-owned enterprises, capital formation has been the bottleneck to the expansion of private small and medium-sized enterprises across the country. In Chongqing, hundreds of government-approved and regulated private non-bank providers of microcredit have lent US$15billion to SMEs this year alone.


At the same time, government policies are spurring large-scale developments in technology and manufacturing. The development model of the coastal regions encourages low-end assembly industries, with higher-value components still being made overseas. In landlocked Chongqing, the government opted for the rapid build-up of scale in downstream assembly. This is driving component makers to move production from overseas to Chongqing.


Perhaps the most significant element of the Chongqing phenomenon is its underlying driver: public morality. A Chinese brand of socialism underpins its development. The red-culture campaign, with its revival of communist revolutionary music, reaffirms modern communitarian values that resonate with Chinese culture's Confucian roots. Rapid economic development can only be justified and sustained on the basis of a fair and just society. A strong government is proving to be effective because it is consistent with the Chinese tradition of honouring moral authority vested in political power. In an increasingly materialistic environment, the government led by the Communist Party is reclaiming the moral high ground in the municipality.


The implications are significant. Without genuine development of its inland regions, the rise of China may very well be miscarried.


Deng Xiaoping launched China's economic reforms 32 years ago with the establishment of the first "special economic zone" in Shenzhen - the first stop of China's rise. He relaunched reforms nearly 20 years ago with his "southern tour" that was best symbolised by the emergence of Shanghai - the second stop. But, the sprawling factories of Shenzhen and the glittering towers of Shanghai do not yet a powerful nation make. Could this mountain metropolis be the third stop and final launching pad of the ascendency of a major civilisational power? All eyes are on Chongqing.
