In Gaoloumi they claim the Terra Tower has 302m, 62 floors, but I can't find any source. Anybody who finds an official source should open a thread.

I asked the thread starter in gaoloumi and he says the official height is not known yet, adding that "it looks more like 280m". Also MCFXM in motiancity made a thread with "300+" but he too says he's not certain on the exact final height.

Lol, so why did he open a thread like 302m, why not 301m or 303m. Amazing! In those forums together with ss.cn they often post things they don't really know, and normally they never provide a source for anything they post, from renders to data, etc. It's so annoying and unprofessional. I always have to check by myself 99% of what they post before reposting here, so that I know if it's real or invented

Universiade Special: Ceremonies to tell Shenzhen's story
9 April 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

The opening and closing ceremonies of Universiade Shenzhen 2011 must win over the audience with "uniqueness and originality" rather than opulence or mere visual experience, said Liang Daoxing, director of the executive office of the organizing committee for Universiade Shenzhen 2011.

His remarks came as winners of public bids for creating the opening and closing ceremonies were announced. The 26th Summer Universiade will be held in Shenzhen from August 12 to 23 next year.

"Innovation is the soul of Shenzhen. Innovation should be one of the criteria for the two important ceremonies and be reflected in every detail," Liang told a press conference.

He noted that influential events like the Guangzhou Asian Games and Shanghai Expo will be staged this year, so the big challenge for Shenzhen will be to make the opening and closing ceremonies impressive.

"Our biggest challenge is how to stand out from these events and fulfill the target of fully demonstrating and promoting Shenzhen," Liang said.

He required production teams to be open-minded while down-to-earth, giving up all fixed concepts and work out a unique plan that could match the "unusual story" of Shenzhen.

Three companies, including the company that participated in the design and organizing of the opening and closing ceremonies of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, will jointly work on the Universiade events.

The executive office received 11 proposals since public bidding opened last April. Five were selected to enter the final round of competition.

Zhao Guanghua, deputy director of the executive office, said the results were based on the decision of an independent panel of experts.

The three companies will now jointly set up a new company in Shenzhen to be responsible for signing contracts, production and operations, he added.

The opening and closing ceremonies are regarded as the most important cultural activities of an international sporting event.

Starting from 2008, the executive office has invited a number of famous artists and scholars to discuss key issues, including cultural positioning, styles, artistic performances, and finally, to set the proper tone.

Reclaimed land in Shenzhen cracking up
11 April 2010
SCMP

It's called the Happy Coast estate, but perhaps they should rename it Scary Coast.

Cracks have begun appearing in a glitzy Shenzhen neighbourhood - one of many that have sprung up in the past decade or so on newly reclaimed land. In the Baoan central district, a fast-growing 1,500-hectare strip in the city's west, the cracks are up to 10cm wide.

"It's scary seeing all these cracks around the buildings where you live," said Amanda Liu, 32, who owns a flat in Happy Coast, where they sell for 15,000 yuan to 18,000 yuan (HK$17,027 to HK$20,432) per square metre. "The problem seems to be getting worse but we don't know what to do about it."

A crack at least 30 metres long has appeared along a pavement, leaving the walkway tilting, with one side 10cm lower than the other.

At nearby Shum Yip New Shoreline, where flats can fetch 20,000 yuan per square metre, sections of the ground outside its main gate are undulating from the effects of subsidence. At another estate, West Coast Tea City, subsidence in the ground around some of the buildings has created cracks up to 10cm across. Sinking concrete and brickwork has created a hole a metre wide in a pavement along Zhong Yang Da Jie, or Central Avenue.

While engineers don't point the finger at anyone over the subsidence, their observations about normal industry practice suggest the local government may have cut corners on its reclamation and sold the newly formed land prematurely in order to recoup its investment.

Most of the land in the district was created through reclamation in the mid to late 1990s. The government of Baoan, one of Shenzhen's six administrative zones, has spent about 4 billion yuan reclaiming land and building infrastructure.

The Construction Bureau of Baoan has invited experts to investigate the cracks. The bureau said preliminary findings showed the buildings were safe. Ground settlement was inevitable after land was reclaimed on soft foundations near the Pearl River estuary, it said.

Similar problems occurred in 2007 around Macau's stadium, built for the 2005 East Asian Games, and beside the StarWorld casino on the Cotai Strip. Both were built on land reclaimed from the Pearl River estuary.

Structural engineers Greg Wong Chak-yan, a former president of the Hong Kong Institute of Engineers, and So Yiu-kwan said it normally took 10 years for reclaimed land to settle before construction should begin.

Wong said the settlement period could be shortened to five years if silt was properly removed before reclamation. So said the settlement period could be shortened only if silty foundations were properly dried.

"Without sufficient settlement before construction, there may be uneven future settlement, resulting in leaning buildings," So said.

Few of the district's reclamation projects involved the expensive process of silt treatment, according to Shenzhen engineers familiar with the projects. And the government sold sites in the district often just a few years after they were reclaimed. Construction of residential towers began in the district in the early years of the century as developers took advantage of a property boom. For example, property firm Shum Yip bought an 18.4 hectare site for 415 million yuan in July 2002, about two years after the area was reclaimed. It began building Shum Yip New Shoreline in 2004.

Since the 1990s, Shenzhen has reclaimed 60 square kilometres from the sea - an area more than twice the size of Macau - and plans to reclaim a further 30 square kilometres by 2020.

It isn't alone. There has been a reclamation boom in other coastal areas of China, such as Hainan , as property prices have surged. Reclamation is attractive to governments and developers because it produces land without the hassle of dealing with small-property owners and negotiating compensation with them. Plus the sites have sea views, which bring premium prices.

Yeah, there have been several different designs and renders made for that plot. It was formerly known as "Nanyou Shopping Park". Most of the existing renders look less than 200m.


Some more former renders:


1. This is perhaps the best known one, looks just under 200m












2. Looks less than 100m










3. Looks around 200m




4. Look less than 150m

I like the design no. 1, 2 and 4. I hope all of them have a change to be built, too good to be missed.

When I first saw the concept photos of this stadium, I'm a bit dislike it or a bit disappointing. I'm surprise in the real world the stadium is very good looking. Great choice!
