In ShenzhenDaily - October 20th

Here is the link to the article: http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-...ent_816117.htm

Here is its content:

Futian finance center growing faster
Liu Minxia

FOUR more high-rise buildings belonging to financial service companies will be erected in Shenzhen’s central business district (CBD) in Futian, accelerating the city’s development of the area into a financial center known as “Shenzhen’s Wall Street.”

Four finance companies, including China Life Insurance Co., acquired land parcels covering about 23,000 square meters at the Futian CBD for a total of 2.32 billion yuan (US$337 million) at an auction Friday afternoon.

Among the four land lots adjacent to Jintian Road, the largest, covering more than 8,000 square meters, was bought for 985 million yuan by Sino Life Insurance Co., which moved its headquarters to Shenzhen from Shanghai a year ago.

China Life, which bought an additional piece of land for 515 million yuan, plans to build a 100-meter-tall office building for its Shenzhen branch, according to Liang Yong, general manager of the company’s Shenzhen branch.

CDB Leasing Co. Ltd. purchased another lot for 481 million yuan and Minsheng Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. bought the remaining land for 338 million yuan.

At least 60 percent of the office area in the four buildings should be for the companies’ own use and won’t be eligible for sale for 10 years, according to the contracts.

The four office buildings to be completed before October 2012 will have a total construction area of 289,000 square meters, giving the land an average value of around 8,000 yuan per square meter, relatively very low for the area, analysts say.

“For that area, residential apartments are being sold for around 25,000 yuan per square meter and offices sell at 40,000 yuan per square meter, so the land price is very low,” said Wu Jian, a director with DTZ’s South China branch.

This illustrates the support the city government is lending to financial service companies setting up offices in the Futian CBD, said Song Ding, a senior real estate analyst with China Development Institute.

Shenzhen, whose competitiveness as a financial center ranks fifth worldwide in the latest Global Financial Centers Index published late last month, has been actively seeking to enhance its status as a financial center.

Ping An Insurance recently broke ground for the construction of its headquarters building on a land lot in Futian CBD it acquired for 1.66 billion yuan in November 2007, which is planned for completion at the end of 2014.

In addition, 13 other well-known companies, including CITIC Bank, Guosen Securities and China Merchants Securities, have acquired land to build their office buildings in the area. The Shenzhen Stock Exchange will be relocated to the CBD from its existing location in Luohu District.

At the heart of Shenzhen's Central CBD sits the Civic Square 市民中心广场 and the "Crystal Island" 水晶岛.






There are now plans to rev up the place, with a Beijing Egg Shanzhai Dome over the Crystal Island.

Not much purpose really. It's suppose to make an architectural statement, being at the center of the north-south central axis and the east-west central axis of Shenzhen. But it's just a 山寨 (copy) of the National Opera Theater so it won't live up to its purpose.

Also it would house some facilities like restrooms, cafes, exhibition halls etc. Most importantly it's shade from the sun for people to duck into. In China, people have a phobia towards a tan, as you can see all those people holding umbrellas in the render. Shenzhen's latitude makes it streaming hot most of the year so the shade will be much appreciated.

Where as this one

was designed by MVRDV which has won second place.

So the stacks of books won't be built
This cannot be true. The first one could not have won the competition, since Coop Himmelblau is designing the northeastern tower in this project, and its design looks like this:



Located here:


Secondly, looking closer to that rendering, the tower behind Stock Exchange and the tower right beside Coop's tower (left in the render) is nothing like the winning design, or that book design.

So there must be some other winner? Or else they are not following the masterplan design at all.

I think Steven Holl's winning design is more of a "masterplan layout" for the stock exchange's block (unified urban plan and office complex, tropical skyscrapers as Shade Machines connected by a “Social Bracket”, etc). The 4 towers around the SSE building are then to be individually designed, of which the Coop Himmelblau tower is one of them. All in all, I still like the stacks of books the best.

Btw, out of curiosity, can't find any project for this plot, has anything been decided? (the plot has been cleared and is ready for construction)



Also, where in Nanshan is this one located? (Shenzhen Space International Center)


Also II, where in Nanshan is this one located? (CASC International Center)


exact plot location would help a lot.
