They have already done so in Beijing and Shanghai. Beijing now has a Finance Street west of the Forbidden City to decentralize from the World Trade Ctr. area in the east side. Shanghai has Pudong.

Ancient village resists developer
18 January 2011
South China Morning Post

Thirty residents in a 700-year-old village in Shenzhen, many of them Hongkongers, are being confronted by a developer who blocked roads and cut water and electricity supplies in an attempt to clear their homes for redevelopment.

The stand-off between the villagers and guards hired by the developer was still going on last night. A few villagers were slightly injured in occasional clashes. They are the last to stay on in the historical Gangxia village in Futian district, claiming that the development is illegal.

"We are just struggling with our last breath, we are the only ones who can still withstand the disturbance mentally," said a villager, 30, who identified himself by the surname Man. He said he had been living in fear for several years as the village suffered one disruption after another.

The villagers, all bearing the surname Man, or Wen in Putonghua, share the same ancestor as some of Hong Kong's indigenous residents.

Gangxia, which lies at the heart of the urban district, was once a strong community with thousands of people, including more than 1,000 with Hong Kong residency. It was built 700 years ago by an army created by scholar-general hero Wen Tianxiang in the southern Song dynasty.

Residents began moving out several years ago as redevelopment took place in half of the village. Either they could not stand the disturbance of the land seizures or they received millions in compensation. Many buildings were demolished.

"It is not about money," Man said. "Our village definitely has our own ability to redevelop. It is about justice. It's our land. It's an issue related to our descendants and not something money can resolve."

He said the government named a developer without any open tender. Two of the villagers were admitted to hospital last year after they were beaten by triad members as they campaigned against land seizures. "This is really outrageous. I am not rich but I never worry about meals {hellip} We are not like those who leave after receiving millions in compensation."

There is some activity on this plot. All the walls have been torn down and the plot is being cleared out. Any idea about what can it be?

Yann,

I believe that plot (and the cleared one where the homeless people live next door) were going to be a couple residential real estate towers. Can't find the link though... I think I saw it at Gaoloumi.

Another question for the board. Recently, there's been some activity around Huanggangcun. I talked to some of my friends that lived there, and it doesn't seem like there's going to be a widespread demolition ala Gangxia, but there's definitely something going on - perhaps a partial redevelopment in the mold of Xiasha.



Anyone know what's up here?

South China city considering congestion fees against traffic jams

BEIJING, Mar. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's southern economic powerhouse Shenzhen is studying the possibility of collecting congestion fees and further raising parking fees to unsnarl its clogged roads.

Huang Min, director of the Shenzhen Traffic and Transport Commission, said the city is working on a package of measures to cub traffic jams, including further improving the management of vehicles and roads.

Shenzhen will speed up construction of the metro and track traffic and open more bus routes to encourage more local residents and tourists to use the city's public transportation facilities, China Daily on Tuesday quoted Huang as saying.

Wang Guowen, a researcher from the Shenzhen Comprehensive Development Institute, said the collection of congestion fees indicates the government is learning the experience of some other countries and regions to tackle traffic problems by introducing market principles.

Lu Huapu, a professor from Tsinghua University, said collecting congestion fees would certainly help ease traffic jams in Shenzhen, but it cannot tackle the problem at its roots.

Relevant departments should further improve the city's public transport systems and lower the charges for using public facilities before congestion fees are collected, Lu said.

According to a five-year plan of improving the city's public transport capacity, Shenzhen is expected to become the country's first city to build special high-occupancy vehicle lanes in the Chinese mainland, Huang said.

Shenzhen will build an additional 150 kilometers of special bus lanes this year, and another 100 km in 2012, Huang said.

By the end of 2013, Shenzhen will have special bus lanes reaching more than 400 km.

And Shenzhen will put 3,000 new buses into service in the following five years, Huang said.

Shenzhen now has the mainland's highest vehicle density. More than 1.7 million vehicles had been registered in the city by the end of last year, approaching the official limit. But there are actually more than 1.9 million vehicles, in addition to cars from outside the city, Shenzhen traffic department figures showed.

For sure the small buildings facing the exhibition center on BinHe Road are being renovated as it seems that all these types of buildings (even higher ones) are getting a facelift on a ver long portion of BinHe Road. They seem to facelift even the buildings that have already been renovated few years back.
But this is classical china think, the facelift only the first blocks that are facing the main road, the buildings in the back don't get to be renovated...
The dust under the carpet policy...

Who knows about this building?

Is there a thread on this building? Just West of Citic Plaza.

Kaisa International Finance Center (yet another IFC in Shenzhen... it begins becoming ridiculous!)

They write: "breaking the height record of Shenzhen city..."

Breaking the height record? Lol
Therefore the renders can't be final. Or they should be sued for 'spreading false rumors'.

Is this a SHKP development or they're just copying the IFC brand?

Interchange Tower
by WORKac | 187m | 46fl | App

For WORKac’s skyscraper design for the Shenzhen Metro Tower, the architects created a new a new kind of mixed density to promote a sustainable
and a diverse stacked city. This vertical city holds places places of intense urban interchange that combine infrastructure, mixed uses, and public
space. Located at an intersection with a horizontal crossroads of major boulevards, this vertical interchange between the underground metro,
ground-level bus station, shopping podium and the offices and hotel above will essentially be linking the metro with the sky. ”We call this tower
the Interchange – a vertical city that twists together natural green space with ecological systems, structural and functional efficiency with
dramatic new forms and technology, while linking the underground to the sky,” added the architects.

“Our design celebrates this condition by tracing the diagonal line of the Metro Line #1 up through the building. The subway can also be easily
accessed directly through the main elevators of the tower, which also provides direct and convenient access for hotel guests and office workers to
travel directly from the secure tower metro lobby to the upper floors,” explained the architects.

The tower draws on contextual diagonal lines – all derived from the trajectory of the metro – become the organizing motif of the building. A series
of open green spaces have been strategically inserted between the different programmatic zones. These “green pockets” are chiseled into the
building, creating a natural counterpoint to the hard edges of the tower and providing a striking visual confirmation of the building’s commitment
to the new ecological urbanism. The building’s diagonal forms also help the structural system.

The floors directly below each cut take advantage of the requirements for large structural trusses and refuge floors to create space for natural
water filtration systems. By sharing systems, the building can also take advantage of the inverse day-night load cycles of the offices and the hotel,
spreading out the maximum loads across 24 hours. Rooftop solar panels at the tower and podium will help provide additional energy for the building.

Yes there is a half built shopping mall there. The mall is called IA Mall 晶岛国际购物中心. The developer of that mall (S.Z.I.E. 深国商) ran into serious financial problems, so the half built mall is just gonna sit there incomplete. Until they or another developer source enough funds to finish the project.

Shenzhen IA Mall is back on tracks !
