Xiasha is developed by Kingkey as well, but the tallest building there will only be 180 meters.

Good to see they're finally doing something about the 烂尾 that was IA Mall.

That said, a big part of me was hoping that they would have scrapped the whole "Central Walk" idea and built a cluster of towers (preferably residential) where IA Mall is going to be. Absolutely zero people are going to take the time to stroll those ugly, man-made gardens in Shenzhen's heat.

But - a new mall beats a half-finished one, I suppose. Let's just hope they scrap the tacky, floral design.

For sure! The 4 foot bridges are already there on the Central Walk waiting to be connected to IA Mall, then IA Mall connected with footbridges to the exhibition center. You will be able to walk from exhibition center to lianhua hill without crossing any road.
Exhibition center => IA Mall roof => Central Walk roof => Central Park => Civic Center => Shenzhen Library roof => LianHua park

They are now connecting the north side of Shenzhen library roof to inside LianHua park directly.
(That's where I run, Can't wait to make all this without crossing any roads!)

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.

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.
The city should not implement traffic congestion fees before they start enforcing traffic and parking regulations. The city is effectively subsidizing driving by allowing people to park for free on the streets and sidewalks. That land that the cars park on is extremely valuable.

this is one of the thing I hate the most in Shenzhen!
I have tons of pictures like these!
What angers me the most is that these people don't think any second about how pedestrian will do and especially family with baby strollers! These families have to take their baby strollers on the road to go around these vehicles, exposing them to running cars! Many restaurants organize themselves the parking of their customers right in front of their restaurants, putting the most expensive cars just near the entrance to show that wealthy people eat there. And their cars completely block the pedestrians.
They really need to do something about that.

Well, I think the other aspect is more practical. It's easy to install some electronic devices to charge cars every time they enter the city. But to place traffic enforcement cops to fine violaters on the street is likely more cumbersome and the revenue stream won't be as big.

I disagree, the revenue stream can be huge. If you asked me to fine 30 RMB for any parking violation around my place, I would make thousands RMB a day.
