Illegal building pulled down
2011-December-15 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

ILLEGAL extensions on four villas at an expensive estate in Futian District were demolished Tuesday by government workers, yesterday’s Daily Sunshine reported.

The estate, Honey Lake No. 1, on Xiangmei Road is ranked the sixth most expensive in Shenzhen. Illegal extension has been rampant there, previous media reports said.

At an average of 100,000 yuan (US$15,870) per square meter, the area became a large construction site after the Universiade closed, the report said.

Futian District set up a special team to deal with illegal extension at the estate.

Futian’s illegal construction inspection office said it will suspend property rights registration for the estate as a penalty and tighten curbs on illegal construction in the district.

City plans to build 40,000 units of public housing
2011-December-22 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE city planned to build 40,000 units of public housing in 2012, according to a meeting of the city’s housing construction bureau Tuesday.

The houses will become available in 2013 and 2014.

Work on 65 public housing projects started this year, according to the bureau.

The 65 projects will supply 73,556 units of housing.

The city completed the registration process of about 6,000 units of public housing in October, supplying a total of 5,612 houses.

“We have supplied public housing to the majority of low-income families registered before the end of 2007,” said Li Rongqiang, the bureau chief.

The city’s public housing will reach 480,000 units by the end of 2015, covering 52 percent of Shenzhen hukou holders.

The housing allowance to professionals has also been offered to 10,930 people since the project began last December.

Station locations of new Metro line debated
2011-December-21 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE city’s urban planning commission is soliciting residents’ suggestions for station locations for Metro Line 9, which is expected to be completed in January 2017, yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

Construction on the new Metro line, which will run 25.33 kilometers and have a total of 22 stations, will start next year. The Line 9, to run between Wenjin in the city’s east and Shenzhen Bay in the west, would have 10 exchange stations, going through residential and office areas in Luohu, Futian and Nanshan.

Citizens hope the stations will shorten the travel time to major sites, including hospitals, residential estates and parks.

“Some of the current stations on other lines are too far away from the residential estates, and it takes people a long time to walk to the stations from their homes,” the paper quoted a resident surnamed Luo as saying.

Another passenger, surnamed Wang, said Shenzhen University Station on the Luobao Line is inconvenient as it is too far away from the campus.

The city’s urban planning commission said it will collect the suggestions and improve their choices of station locations for Line 9. In some densely populated areas, such as Hua-qiangbei, it will set up a station every 500 meters, it said.

Work on the third phase of Shenzhen’s Metro construction, which includes lines 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11, is expected to start before the end of this month, the report said. (Liu Minxia)

Metro lines 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11, which cover 170 kilometers and 101 stations, will take the total length of the Metro network to 341 kilometers when completed in 2017.

Construction on Line 11, which would link central Futian with Songgang in Bao’an District. will start first, followed by lines 7 and 9 next year and lines 6 and 8 at an as yet undisclosed date, the report said.

The third phase also includes the construction of two transfer stations. Chegongmiao station would be a transfer station for lines 1, 11, 7 and 9. The station would cost 1.7 billion yuan (US$270 million). Qianhai station will be a transport hub for lines 1, 5, 11 and the intercity rail with Guangzhou and Dongguan.

SZ to build biggest cruise homeport in South China
2011-December-26 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

WORK on the biggest cruise homeport in South China started last Thursday at Taizi Bay in Shekou, Nanshan District.

The Taizi Bay Cruise Homeport received approximately 10 billion yuan (US$1.67 billion) in investment from Shenzhen Merchants Shekou Industrial Zone Co. Ltd. It is expected to be completed in 10 years.

The port will occupy an area of 72 hectares. The total construction area will be 1.7 million square meters.

The coastline of the port will be 1,509 meters. It has 17 berths and the port’s throughput will be 7.6 million people per year.

An upper-market commercial and residential building, a five-star hotel, a shopping mall, an art museum, a concert hall and a park will be built as part of the project.

It was expected that more than 1.8 million tourists would be attracted to the Shekou area over a year after the project was finished.

Feasibility analysis of the project started in 2002 and its design was approved by the city government in 2007.

China currently has only three cruise homeports in Tianjin, Shanghai and Xiamen.

Border land popular
2012-January-9 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

LAND in Dongguan that is along the border with Shenzhen has become popular among land developers, compared with land in downtown Dongguan, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

Land purchased in Tangxia Township, Dongguan City, which borders Shenzhen, accounts for 19 percent of all land purchase deals done in Dongguan last year. Land purchased by developers in downtown Dongguan only accounts for 4 percent.

Last year 145 lots with a total area of 571 hectares were auctioned at a total price of 12.4 billion yuan (US$1.97 billion) in Dongguan.

Developers, most of whom are based outside Guangdong Province, rushed to invest in the border land between the two cities, mainly because the need for housing of Shenzhen residents continues to increase as the city expands.

Pingshan needs better environment
2012-January-9 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A BETTER environment should be created in Pingshan New Zone to boost the area’s economy and urban development, said Yang Xusong, Party chief of the area, when reviewing the government report yesterday.

Yang said nearly all aspects, including urban construction, traffic, roads, education and livelihood in Pingshan, were far less developed than the rest of Shenzhen. A better plan and more preferential policies should be given to the area to make it a better place for residents and companies, said Yang.

Yang suggested the city speed up road construction in the area to make it “much closer” to downtown Shenzhen.

There are only 9.39 kilometers of highways and 2 kilometers of expressways in the area and many roads were still unqualified ones built by the villages years ago.

Although the city planed to invest 17 billion yuan (US$2.7 billion) to build a road network in Pingshan in five years, it was still not convenient for large amounts of migrant workers.

“I hope that the third phase of Metro construction can start soon to help solve Pingshan residents’ problems of going downtown,” he said.

Some deputies also suggested the city send out more vans selling cheap vegetables in Bao’an, Longgang, Pingshan and Guangming.

“The current locations are not reasonable as they are mostly in Luohu, Futian and Nanshan districts. People living in those areas have much higher incomes than those in other areas on average and I think such a good program should serve those low-income people first,” said Li Guimin, a deputy from Pingshan New Zone.

Li said the vans were parked at areas such as Xiangmihu, Shenzhen Bay and Donghai areas, which were all wealthy communities.

“However, there are only a few in other less developed areas. For example, there is only one in Pingshan and most of the low-income migrant workers still have to pay high prices for food,” Li said.

Dapeng tourism plan unveiled
2012-January-12 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN is planning to develop Dapeng Peninsula in Daya Bay into an international tourist spot. According to a development plan of Shenzhen tourism authority for 2011-2015.

The development will be made according to the terrace and ecological conditions. Kuichong area will be developed into a transition area from an urban area into a tourism area, providing transit, facilities and convenience. The high-end marine industry will be developed in the area. International convention buildings and high-end resorts will also be built in what is already one of the most attractive coastal areas in China.

The city will give priority to the protection and preservation of the development of Dapeng and Nan’ao, the core areas of ecological tourism. The Dapeng and Xinda areas will be built into a comprehensive service base, while Xiasha will be developed into a tourism area. Judiaosha will center around sport tourism, according to the plan.

The government will set up an agency for the development and conservation. During the development, old villages in the mountains will be preserved and developed for tourism.

The first area to undergo development will be the Xiasha area in the west coast of the peninsula. According to an agreement of the city with China National Travel Service Group Corp., the travel agency will invest around 2 billion (US$317 million) to 3 billion yuan to build the tourist facilities in the first phase of the development of the Xiasha area.

The 120-km coastline of Dapeng, which has more than 20 beaches which are undeveloped, is regarded as the focal point of Shenzhen’s future and strategic resources.

Home prices expected to fall by 30 percent
2012-January-12 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

HOUSING prices are expected to further drop by 30 percent in 2012, returning to the level of April in 2009, if the tightened regulatory policy remains unchanged, according to a meeting of local housing agents Tuesday.

Major housing agencies Centaline Property, Zhonglian Real Estate, DTZ and Shenzhen World Union Properties Consultant (SZWUPC) all offered pessimistic forecasts towards the market this year.

“Transactions of preowned apartments will stall at 5,000 units per month”, said Li Zhiyao, manager of Centaline, which means a 43 percent decrease compared with last year.

2011 has seen low transactions under the tightening policy as statistics showed transactions were of 8.2 million square meters, a 33.62 percent decrease from 2010, the lowest in 11 years.

SZWUPC predicted that housing prices would go down in 2012 and may hit their bottom by the end of the second quarter as the economy seeks a soft-landing, and resumes warming-up in the second half of 2012. Centaline believed that more buyers may turn up as prices drop while potential homebuyers may take some risks in buying new properties.

Construction workers demand back pay
2012-January-19 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

MORE than 100 construction workers and material suppliers of an illegal project in Dapeng New Zone are demanding back pay.

The project, Taiyuan Ecological Technology Industrial Park, was suspended in November 2010 by the Longgang urban management bureau for illegal construction, the Yangcheng Evening News reported yesterday.

Although the bureau asked the project developers, Shenzhen Taiyuan Industrial Co. Ltd. and Shuitou Community, to either demolish the illegal construction or complete related construction procedures before Nov. 30, 2010, the illegal construction is still there.

The No. 3 Construction & Engineering Co. Ltd. of China Construction Fourth Engineering Division Corp., the project constructor, claimed the developers had defaulted on paying 40 million yuan (US$6.35 million), leading to its postponement of pay for workers and material suppliers, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

“We went to the construction company repeatedly seeking the money over the past year. The company puts the blame on the project developers,” said a man, Xu, who was sent again by his boss, a material supplier, to demand the back pay Tuesday morning.

Another man, Liu, who was in charge of the mechanical and electrical department on the construction site, said he is owed more than 40,000 yuan in wages.

“I feel too ashamed to go home for the Spring Festival without the money,” said Liu.

Vice manager of the Taiyuan company, Wang Xiaorong, said the company is settling accounts to clarify “who owes who.”

“We have paid more than 10 million yuan, which should have been enough to cover the construction workers’ wages,” said Wang.

The subdistrict office said the constructor has illegally subcontracted the project, leading to confusion for in the management and damaging workers’ interests.

The arbitration committee for labor disputes of Dapeng New Zone has started hearing the case, which involves 15.6 million yuan in back pay for 253 workers.

Another New Year, another swath of projects that come out (the central government sets banking quotas around this time, which is why you see so many new projects). Looks like many of the new projects are in Longgang - if you're curious, there's more here (in Chinese).

The most interesting project I feel is the "Huaqiang Center" project. The location is in two parts - one piece on the north of Shennan Road across from SEG Plaza, which I've heard will reach 250m, and another huge slab on the south side of Shennan Road which it looks like will wipe out that area of "Commie Block" housing. Hopefully, the electronics components market will be saved on the north side, but I suppose they'll just settle down somewhere else in Huaqiangbei if not. The south side buildings should reach about 190m.

Geological park to open in June
2012-January-31 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE first stage of the geological park on Depeng Peninsula in eastern Shenzhen is scheduled to open for free visits in June, Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported yesterday.

The first stage of the construction, covering an area of 56.3 square kilometers, is close to completion. It is composed of 16 projects including a 5.6-kilometer coastal promenade, a mangrove wetland conservation area, a geological museum and a science education base.

The first stage construction also includes a 12-kilometer hiking track with 10 viewing stands, six emergency shelters and police booths, and seven environmentally friendly toilets.

Jin Dianqi, who is in charge of the project, said the museum is built with natural stones including volcanic rock.

Its coastal promenade has been integrated into the hiking and cycling track network in the Pearl Rive Delta. There will be a 2-meter-wide cycling track on the promenade.

“Our goal is to build an international geological park and conserve its ecology as well as possible. We didn’t even use modern machines in the construction of the hiking tracks. Instead, almost 50 horses transported the building materials,” said Jin.

“The park will become the first national geological park that offers free entry,” said Jin.

At a cost of more than 1.5 billion yuan (US$220 million), the park will be finished in three phases. The construction of the first stage started last year.

The park will not only boost tourism in the Pearl River Delta and southern China but also provide a place for research into volcanic activities and coastal landforms during the late Jurassic period, according to the park management committee.

Wetland park to be built along river
2012-February-9 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A WETLAND park will be built along Longgang River when a phase-two river treatment project is completed at the end of this year, according to Ding Haicheng, director of the Longgang District Environmental Protection and Water Resources Bureau.

With a total investment of 1.02 billion yuan (US$161.7 million), the phase-two project, which started last month, will clean up a 9-kilometer section of the river, build a wetland park and a rainwater storage pool.

Longgang River, which runs northeast from Wutong Mountain in Shenzhen to Huizhou City, has a 10.9-kilometer section that was cleaned up in the first-phase project last year. The Henggang sewage treatment plant in the upper reaches now processes 200,000 tons of sewage water a day and Hengling plant in the lower reaches, which is under construction, will have a capacity of 800,000 tons a day, enough to handle the current 510,000 tons of sewage discharged into the river, said Wang Wenjin, director of the water treatment office of Longgang District.

The river bank offers scenic views after the phase-one project and a dragon boat race is expected to be held there during the Dragon Boat Festival.

New rules streamline urban renewal
2012-February-9 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A NEW set of rules on urban renewal prohibits developers from initiating urban renewal projects at old neighborhoods.

The rules, announced at a press conference Tuesday, stipulate that district governments, rather than developers, shall do the early-stage work in urban renewal projects ranging from the soliciting of public opinion to feasibility studies.

A developer will be selected via public bidding after the district government makes a compensation plan and a public bidding plan. The plans have to win the support of at least 90 percent of property owners and of people who own at least 90 percent of the land, according to the rules.

“The rules ban developers from setting up ‘renewal offices’ in residential areas, or soliciting opinions on urban renewal. The government no longer accepts developers’ renewal applications for old residential areas,” said Tan Quan, vice director of the municipal urban renovation office.

According to new rules, a renewal project must involve at least 10,000 square meters of land. Rules on the renovation of single buildings are still under consideration, said Tan.

At least 3,000 square meters (and at least 15 percent) of the cleared land shall be given to the government for the construction of infrastructure, public service facilities or other projects of public interest, according to the new rules.

The government also promised to streamline the application procedure to speed up urban renewal. “We have cut half of the administrative procedure,” said Tan.

Shenzhen-Zhongshan corridor route decided
2012-February-13 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE Shenzhen-Zhongshan corridor project, which will give Shenzhen much-desired direct road access to the western Pearl River Delta, has made a significant breakthrough.

The corridor’s landing site on the Shenzhen side will be south of Shenzhen’s airport, and the corridor’s route to Zhongshan has been decided, Huang Min, director of the Shenzhen transport commission, said at a recent meeting.

The corridor will be connected with Jihe Expressway and Guangzhou-Shenzhen No. 2 Expressway in Shenzhen and with Jiangzhong Expressway in Zhongshan, which is located on the western bank of the Pearl River.

As the corridor will go either above or beneath the mouth of the Pearl River — or both —studies relating to issues such as river navigation, flight altitude control at the Shenzhen airport and flood control at the mouth of the Pearl River were launched last year.

Plans for the Shenzhen-Zhongshan corridor project will be completed this year, Huang said. The project is included in Guangdong Province’s 12th five-year plan. It is a key project in the Reform and Development Plan of the Pearl River Delta Area for 2008-2020.

The corridor project is estimated to cost 30 billion yuan (US$4.76 billion). It will be started in 2015 and completed in 2020.

Shenzhen officials came up with initial plans to build an underwater tunnel or a bridge to connect the city with Zhongshan about six years ago.

In other roadway news, the Shenzhen transport commission said the Shenzhen sections of Guangzhou-Shenzhen No. 2 Expressway, Boluo-Shenzhen Expressway and the second phase of Qingping Expressway will be finished within the year.

The 63.2 kilometers of Boluo-Shenzhen Expressway cover Huizhou, Dongguan and Shenzhen. The work will greatly improve the vehicle access and economies of the three cities.

SZ-Wuhan link to open in March
2012-February-15 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

HIGH-SPEED trains are scheduled to start running between Shenzhen and Wuhan on March 17, cutting travel time between the two cities to no more than five hours, Guangzhou Railway Group said yesterday.

Railway plans have been handed to the Ministry of Railway for approval.

Currently, passengers from Shenzhen to Wuhan and Changsha need to transfer at Guangzhou South Railway Station. The Guangzhou-Shenzhen high-speed rail opened Dec. 26, in time for the latest Spring Festival travel season.

According to Li Youyi, deputy director of Shenzhen’s rail construction office, Shenzhen has initiated tests of signals and connections on railway sections from Shenzhen to Guangzhou and Guangzhou to Wuhan.

Shenzhen North Railway Station will handle about 56 pairs of trains after the link opens, including 10 pairs to Changsha and 15 pairs to Wuhan. Travel from Shenzhen should take three hours and 15 minutes to Changsha, and four hours and 50 minutes to Wuhan.

The Shenzhen-Wuhan section is part of a national rail plan linking Beijing to Hong Kong. The 900-kilometer Wuhan-Shijiazhuang high-speed rail is preparing to open. The Wuhan-Zhengzhou section will open in the first half of this year, while the Zhengzhou-Shijiazhuang section will open at the end of the year.

I love Beijing ChaoyangMen, Rising Skyscrapers beyond it!
