Longest coastal park in SZ opens
2011-August-8 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN Bay Park, the longest coastal park in Shenzhen, was opened to the public Friday, one week before the opening of the Universiade.

The 108-hectare park extends from the Mangrove Ecological Park in the east to the bank of Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint in the west, includes 13 regional theme parks for entertainment, sports, sightseeing and leisure. Part of the parkland was reclaimed from the sea, where sightseeing stands were built. A 9-km bicycle lane runs parallel with the pedestrian road.

There are 1,800 parking spaces in car parks along the 9-km coastal park.

At the launch ceremony, city Party chief Wang Rong and Mayor Xu Qin planted trees with Universiade volunteers at the Crescent Valley theme park.

“Shenzhen is a city of volunteers. I was moved that so many volunteers joined in to serve the Universiade, Wang said. “The volunteer spirit is one of the city’s major driving forces on its way to becoming an international city.”

The ceremony also marked the opening of 360 parks citywide which were built or renovated this year.

The city now has 824 parks, ranking No.1 in the country.

Shenzhen Bay Park is in a 15-km coastal leisure belt linking Futian and Nanshan and ending at Shekou in Nanshan District.

South China metropolis benefits from international games

SHENZHEN, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- For 26-year-old Jiang Huali, a typical morning used to involve waking up at 6 a.m. and spending more than two hours riding buses to her office in downtown Shenzhen.

These days, Jiang makes it to work in just an hour, courtesy of one of several new subway lines that have been built in the south China city as it prepares for the upcoming 2011 Universiade.

Jiang is just one of more than 10 million Shenzhen residents who have already benefited from the renovations and developments that the city has undertaken in preparation for the 12-day sports event, which will open on Aug. 12.

Shenzhen won the right to host the 26th Universiade in 2007. The city immediately began working to improve its infrastructure, upgrading and remodeling 280 main roads and spending 75 billion yuan (11.7 billion U.S. dollars) to build five subway lines with a total length of 156 km. All five of the subway lines opened to the public in June this year.

"Large events create pressure to spur city leaders to speed up infrastructure construction and to modify and perfect their cities," said Wang Yukai, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance.

Wang said that hosing international events can have a long-lasting influence on a host city's future development.

Chinese cities are taking advantage of opportunities to host such events, seeking to boost their influence, upgrade infrastructure and improve their residents' quality of life.

Beijing made significant changes to its infrastructure before hosting the 2008 Olympic Games. It was ranked the following year as a "world capital of the future" by Forbes, an American publishing and media company. Shanghai's hosting of the 2010 World Expo allowed the city to make similar developmental strides.

Guangzhou, a large city in south China's Guangdong Province, virtually remade itself in preparation for hosting last year's Asian Games. The city rolled out 910 urban improvement projects, including renovating buildings, cleaning up rivers and expanding its subway system.

Shenzhen is just the latest Chinese city to join the fray. The city has given facelifts to many of its older buildings, fortified community-based security facilities and renovated 1,600 of its shabby "urban villages," which are home to many lower-income city dwellers.

"This area has changed. The houses have been repainted and decorated, streets have been repaved. More and more people are shopping here," said Wang Yanli, a tea vendor living in the city's Xiashiwei urban community.

Measures have been taken to ensure that the Universiade will be environmentally friendly, Xu Qin, vice president and secretary-general of the event's organizing committee, said at a press conference in July.

Xu, who is also the mayor of Shenzhen, said 65 percent of the event's venues have been remodeled or based on existing facilities in order to save costs and reduce the event's environmental impact.

The newly built Universiade Village and Universiade Center were constructed using energy-saving technologies and materials, Xu said.

This environmentally friendly approach will be utilized not only within the Universiade, but also in the city of Shenzhen itself.

Xu said the municipal government will put 2,011 alternative-energy vehicles on the city's streets during the event to promote the use of environmentally friendly vehicles.

The Shenzhen government is also taking the opportunity to narrow the gap between the city's ballooning population and its shortage of social, cultural and sports facilities.

Twenty-two new venues have been built for the event, mostly in the city's urban communities and universities. These facilities will be retained for use by local residents after the games are over.

The Universiade Village, home to more than 12,000 athletes and team officials, will be integrated into the Shenzhen Institute of Information Technology's campus after the event.

Many of the new venues are located in Longgang district, located in the outskirts of the city. According to local resident Chen Minying, the out-of-the-way district has transformed from being an "urban village" to being just another part of downtown Shenzhen - despite the fact that it is not even remotely close to the city's downtown area.

The region would not have developed nearly as quickly without the influence of the Universiade, Chen said.

Yang Haixian, a deputy of the National People's Congress of Shenzhen, said that the city government should continue to make efforts to develop the city and improve the lives of its citizens.

"The Universiade lasts just for 12 days, but the development of Shenzhen should be a long-term task," Yang said.

New hospital to provide 1,000 beds
2011-August-13 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE Shenzhen oncology hospital would provide 1,000 beds when completed, according to design plans.

To be built on Dongjihua Road in Bantian, Longgang District, the 1.5-billion-yuan (US$238 million) hospital would occupy an area of 100,000 square meters with floor space of 170,000 square meters, yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

There would be eight main buildings, including emergency and outpatients buildings, a medical technology building and inpatients wards.

Environmentally friendly technology would be applied in the complex, such as solar water heating system and a rainwater recycling system.

There would be 24 oncology departments, which combined could treat 2,000 patients a day.

The medical technology building would include a medical imaging and nuclear medicine departments.

There will be 15 departments in the inpatient building, including a VIP area.

In addition, there would also be an oncology research department affiliated with a national laboratory in Guangzhou, the paper said.

The city health bureau was considering collaborating with the oncology hospital affiliated with Zhongshan University in Guanzhou to have its oncology specialists provide consultations for the new hospital.

“It will take at least three years to foster a professional oncologist. The collaboration will give the new hospital access to the rich medical resources of Zhongshan University,” said Yu Weiye, director of the hospital construction office.

The plan had been submitted to the city government for approval, the paper said.

Work had been completed on an environmental impact study for the hospital. Authorities had drawn up compensation arrangements for the requisition of land where the hospital was to be built, the paper said.

MTRC wins Shenzhen property ticket
The Standard
Friday, August 19, 2011

MTR Corp (0066) is about to enter the mainland property market - with the first Hong Kong- style development across the border.

The railway operator put in the winning tender for land-use rights to the site above the Longhua Line depot of the Shenzhen Metro.

MTRC paid 2 billion yuan (HK$2.44 billion) for the site with a developable gross floor area of 206,167 square meters, where it will build a residential and commercial complex.

It must bear all development and construction costs but may invite other firms to participate in the project.

MTRC "is delighted to be involved in this property development project," chief executive Chow Chung-kong said.

Net profit, if any, from the development will be shared with the Shenzhen municipal government.

"The profit for the operator here may not be high, but the implications can be huge," Credit Suisse research director Cusson Leung Kai- tongs said.

"With this first-ever project, MTRC can showcase to other mainland cities what it is capable of in terms of property development, which may open more doors," explained Leung, who expects flats at the site to sell for at least 21,000 yuan per square meter, and the project to earn at least 4.3 billion yuan in revenue.

Flats nearby are asking 20,000 yuan psm.

However, Julian Bu at Jefferies said the higher-than-expected costs may eat into profits.

"Unlike its Hong Kong business model, MTRC had to submit tenders to the Shenzhen municipal government for the site - like every other interested mainland developer," Bu said.

"The tender would have jacked up the cost of the site, and thus the project cost."

In Hong Kong, MTRC asks developers to submit tenders for projects once it gets land-use rights from the government to build stations. Shares rose 0.4 percent to HK$25.40 yesterday.

45 companies look to Qianhai
2011-August-23 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A PRELIMINARY agreement has been reached between the Qianhai administration and 45 companies, including 21 from Hong Kong, a news conference was told Sunday.

A 15-square-kilometer coastal strip in Shenzhen’s Nanshan District, Qianhai was named in the 12th national Five-Year Program and would be developed as a hub for the modern service industries of Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

The administration would introduce experienced management personnel in Hong Kong to operate the Qianhai Investment Development Company, yesterday’s Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported.

The city government had been seeking a change to the law to facilitate the Qianhai development, pursuing a bigger role for the government as a service provider.

In addition, the city government has made it a basic principle to introduce influential companies in finance, modern logistics, information services, science and technology.

Innovative small-to-medium enterprises with great potential would also be welcomed, the paper said.

The city government had granted autonomy in 14 areas to the management bureau of Qianhai to facilitate development.

The autonomy covers development strategy planning, land management, land reserves, construction and operations, finance, review and approval of financial projects, attracting investment, foreign exchange and cooperation.

At Sunday’s news conference, director of the Qianhai administration, Zheng Hongjie, spoke of the similarities and differences in the three key areas of cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao in the next five years. The others were Nansha in Guangzhou and Hengqin in Zhuhai.

“The three areas form a ‘golden triangle’ in the Pearl River Delta, all of which were pursuing a modern service industry,” said Zheng.

“Qianhai focuses on a production service industry. Nanshan is an experimental zone for a Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement between the mainland and Hong Kong (CEPA),” said Zheng.

Zheng said the three areas combined would boost development in the entire delta area.

GZ-SZ sea tunnel mulled
2011-October-11 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

GUANGZHOU is considering building an underground sea tunnel connecting its Nansha District with Shenzhen International Airport.

If the idea becomes reality, it will only take about 20 minutes to get from Nansha to Shenzhen, a report in Daily Sunshine said yesterday, quoting officials from the Nansha District Government.

The tunnel will begin from the district’s Longxue Island and will go under the Pearl River to the Shenzhen airport.

Guangzhou is investing intensively in infrastructure in Nansha, the heart of the Pearl River Delta area. Guangzhou’s Metro Line 4 will be extended to Nansha Port to shorten the travel distance between Nansha and Guangzhou downtown. After the completion of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed rail, it only takes 20 minutes to get from Nansha to Hong Kong.

Shenzhen’s planning and land resources commission said it was not aware of the plan. But according to an official who refused to be identified, the idea is good and would greatly stimulate trade between Shenzhen and Nansha if it materializes.

Universiade Village welcomes new students
2011-October-10 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

MORE than a month after the close of the Shenzhen Universiade, signs can still be seen at the Universiade Village indicating it once served as one of the main venues for the Universiade.

The Universiade Village, home to more than 12,000 athletes and officials from more than 120 countries and regions during the games between Aug. 12 and 23, has welcomed new residents. This time, they are not athletes or officials, but freshman students of the Shenzhen Institute of Information Technology (SIIT).

The end of the Universiade has opened a new chapter for the Universiade Village, which has been renovated as part of the new campus of the SIIT. As many as 4,000 new students registered Saturday and yesterday to start their higher education at the modern facilities.

“The campus is really beautiful,” said Su Ai, a new student. “I am happy to study here.”

Some renovation work had to be done to cater to the need of turning the Village into a school campus. For example, three beds in a dormitory have been expanded to four to host more students.

Launched in April 2002, the SIIT has an enrollment figure of 8,500 and it aims to enroll 20,000 students in five years.

New housing estate in Bao’an District cuts prices by 30%
2011-October-12 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A NEW residential estate in Bao’an District which opened only a month ago has slashed prices by up to 5,000 yuan (US$784) per square meter, which attracted a large crowd of homebuyers, and some analysts say this may trigger a domino effect of price cutting in Shenzhen’s property market.

Huabanli estate in Longhua was priced at an average 17,800 yuan per square meter when it was put on sale Sept. 4, according to Wang Lianxin, a salesperson at the estate. Now, prices have dropped by 1,800 yuan to 5,300 yuan per square meter, down 20 to 30 percent, according to Wang.

The estate contains mainly small apartments with construction areas ranging from 78 to 89 square meters, so the total costs of an apartment range from 990,000 yuan to 1.45 million yuan, at the current prices of 12,500 to 16,000 yuan per square meter.

By Friday afternoon, nearly 400 potential purchasers each paid 50,000 yuan in deposits, according to Wang.

Lowered prices attracted a growing number of homebuyers to the estate, according to Luo Bing, another salesperson. “A daily average of 100 visitors came recently and in the past two days we have received about 200 homebuyers everyday,” Luo said.

However, Huabanli is the only estate that offers such deep discounts in that area and not all the apartments are being offered at such low prices. Only five of the 20 buildings in the estate are on offer, while the rest are expected to open for sale next year at an average price of more than 20,000 yuan.

The developer cut prices to boost sales and to improve cash flow, and the other reason for the price cut is the unfavorable location. “Although it is located in Longhua, it is far from the downtown area of Longhua,” a homebuyer whose online name is Hei Tudi wrote in an online forum. “Moreover, not far from the estate stands a water recycling factory, so the air quality may be bad.”

Some analysts expect more property developers in Shenzhen to follow suit in cutting housing prices, while some others think only small developers are willing to do so right now.

Cheap housing near completion
2011-October-25 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE first stage of Shenzhen’s largest government-subsidized housing project is close to completion.

Neighboring Shenzhen North Railway Station in Longhua, Bao’an District, the first stage is only about 9 kilometers from the downtown area and would have more than 4,000 rental apartments when completed in September next year, yesterday’s Daily Sunshine reported.

The entire project was costing 2.81 billion yuan (US$446 million) and would provide about 11,000 apartments when completed.

Shenzhen plans better development
2011-October-28 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN plans to have all residents with hukou (permanent residence) but no housing covered by a housing security system by 2015, according to development plans for the next five years.

The plans cover economic, social, urban, ecological and cultural development and government services, Thursday’s Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

In addition to implementing a housing security system, the city government plans to improve the public service system. Meanwhile, the urban unemployment rate would be held below 3 percent, according to the plans.

While demand for reform in income distribution had been gaining momentum throughout the country, the city government had pledged to step up the regulation and control of income in industrial monopolies in the next five years, the paper said.

The income gap between social classes was expected to narrow, the paper said.

The city would seek to establish a mechanism to ensure a stable increase in incomes.

In the field of urban development, the city plans to install an optical fiber network in all residential communities by 2015, benefiting 1.5 million residents.

District and subdistrict government departments would be encouraged to play a bigger role in urban and social management.

Xiamen-SZ Railway trials start next year
2011-November-3 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE Xiamen-Shenzhen high-speed railway would start trials at the end of next year, yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

It was still not known when the railway would open, an unidentified official from Fujian Province’s key projects administration said Tuesday.

Construction of the high-speed railway was progressing despite incurring financial difficulty after the Wenzhou rail crash in July, the official said.

The 502-kilometer railway would link Shenzhen and Xiaman in Fujian Province. Major cities along the way include Zhangzhou, Chaozhou, Puning, Shantou, Shanwei and Huizhou.

Meanwhile, two other railways in Fujian — Longyan-Xiamen and Xiangtang-Putian — would also start trials next year.

The Ministry of Railways paid nearly 6 billion yuan (US$944 million) to China South Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corp. Ltd. recently to ease financial difficulty for the electric locomotive manufacturer. More payments would be made in November and December.

However, Fujian Province said the construction of railway projects in the province would not be affected by a lack of funding.

Ecological protection a top priority
2011-November-4 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE development of Dapeng Peninsula in Longgang District should focus on environmental protection and sustainable development to create a modern zone with natural scenery and high-tech industries.

These remarks were made by Shenzhen Party chief Wang Rong on a field trip to Dapeng Peninsula on Wednesday.

The top priority in Dapeng’s urbanization and modernization was to protect the environment. “Experience in other parts of the world should be introduced and the area would become a scenic backyard of Shenzhen,” said Wang.

Dapeng Peninsula includes three subdistricts: Kuichong, Dapeng and Nan’ao. There are 25 communities with a population of about 160,000 in the three subdistricts.

The city government is drawing up plans to establish Dapeng and Longhua new zones, to promote urban development and industrial upgrading, Wang said.

The Longhua New Zone includes Longhua, Dalang, Minzhi and Guanlan subdistricts in Bao’an District, while Dapeng New Zone includes Dapeng, Kuichong and Nan’ao subdistricts in Longgang District.
