Family fighting to preserve old house
2012-February-21 08:53
Shenzhen Daily



MEMBERS of a large family are fighting to preserve their 80-year-old ancestral house in Xiyangwei Village on southeast Shenzhen’s Dapeng Peninsula.

One of eight natural villages in the peninsula’s Xichong area, Xiyangwei is one of six villages slated for relocation in plans for Dapeng New Zone, the Daily Sunshine reported yesterday. Most of Xichong will be turned into an international vacation and conference center.

Built in 1932 and covering 320 square meters, the three-story house took the Liang family three years to build, decades ago.

“The house contains memorial tablets of my ancestors,” said Liang Nanlai, a 63-year-old family member.

Liang works in Hong Kong and visits the house every holiday, to honor ancestors and spend time with relatives.

“If the house is demolished, my roots will disappear,” Liang said.

The Liang family, which has more than 40 members, has suggested that the house could be turned into a small folk museum.

Feng Yi, vice director of planning and design for the city’s coast administration, said for preservation to occur, experts must evaluate whether Liang’s ancestral house has value as a cultural relic. The house also could be preserved if it has valuable folk features.

Liu, of Dapeng New Zone’s publicity department, said if the Liang family’s house really has value, the new zone would consider removing Xiyangwei Village from the relocation list.

He Fang, of the Shenzhen Beilinyuan landscaping and architecture design institute, said the Liang family’s appeal for preservation indicates that original planning for the new zone was not double-checked and needs revision.

He also called for better preservation of other historic villages on Dapeng Peninsula. “Although they were built more than 100 years ago, all the buildings in Baguang Village have been demolished,” He said.

45,000 parking spots planned
2012-February-23 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN plans to add 45,000 roadside parking spots in the city and will implement new parking fees according to regional differences.

Parking fees in non-residential areas will be increased, and Shenzhen will change parking fee regulations for government vehicles, said a city transportation report approved by the city government.

The city will encourage residents to choose public transportation through adjustment of the parking fees, and by other economic and administrative measures designed to maintain acceptable traffic levels and reduce rush hour traffic jams in central business districts.

Phase three of Metro construction will enable residents to reach a Metro station within 800 meters in most parts of the city. By 2015, the city will add and adjust 300 bus routes, providing stops within 500 meters of each other across 93 percent of the city, the report said.

The city also will facilitate planning of express bus links and expedite construction of the Futian-Bantian Express Bus Link, which will cover 21.6 kilometers along Zhenhua Road West, Huanggang Road, Meiban Boulevard, Wuhe Boulevard, Jihua Road and Banxuegang Boulevard.

The number of vehicles registered in Shenzhen is about 2 million. About 200,000 additional vehicles, registered outside of Shenzhen, also are on local roads.

National medical sciences institute to be built
2012-February-23 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A SHENZHEN building planned for construction is expected to become the South China branch of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences.

Jiang Hanping, director of the city’s commission of health, population and family planning, told local health industry leaders yesterday that a preparatory committee will start work at the end of this year and an integrative building is slated for completion by the end of 2016.

The academy will include national-level laboratories, experimental bases, an animal laboratory and a clinical experimental base. An information database will provide connections to national libraries and top international science Web sites.

The academy will increase collaboration between the city’s medical organizations and the world’s leading drug makers, medical equipment manufacturers and medical institutes.

“It will become a regional incubator and platform for medical sciences research, medical professional training and advanced biological medicine technology,” Jiang said.

Health industry leaders plan to upgrade Shenzhen’s medical talent and services in coming years with more medical facilities, improved services and a greater focus on medical research achievements.

Goals include 20 hospitals — those of the highest national standard — in the city by 2016. More than 40 senior experts will receive training at leading medical research institutes and hospitals every year, and outstanding young medical professionals will be given increased training and opportunities.

Jiang said research institutes and hospitals could receive new subsidies from the city. A staff evaluation system will help improve medical services for patients and provide a basis for hospital subsidies from local government.

Sea World project taking shape
2012-February-24 08:53
Shenzhen Daily



TWO tall buildings in Shekou have been topped off and are taking shape, marking significant progress for the 60-billion-yuan (US$9.52 billion) development effort renovating Shekou’s Sea World Square.

Funded by China Merchants Group, the two-building project will create a coastal urban development of nearly 1 million square meters at the Sea World entertainment hub, which caters to Shekou’s large expat community.

Massive cranes have filled the sky above Sea World for months, giving diners and bargoers an up-close view of the construction.

The two buildings include a 37-story China Merchants Group commercial complex and a 57,000-square-meter Hilton hotel, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported this week.

Covering an area of 110,000 square meters, the commercial complex is 211 meters high and will feature design elements reminiscent of the sea, sailing and lighthouses. The building will feature a “glass curtain” exterior and employ environmentally friendly technologies. It’s expected to become a new landmark in Shekou, the paper said.

The Hilton hotel will have about 320 guest and banquet rooms and will provide catering, conference and celebration services. Its construction should cost about 800 million yuan.

In addition to the two-building Sea World project, Shekou developers also are planning Net Valley, an industrial park focused on Internet technologies at the foot of Dananshan Mountain. The park hopes to lure companies working in mobile Internet, e-commerce and Internet of Things — research and technologies that link physical objects with cyberspace — according to Shekou planners..

Net Valley intends to attract 300 to 500 Internet companies, with a potential total GDP of 30 billion yuan, in three to five years.

Meanwhile, experts have been encouraging the development of Internet information, culture, media, science and technology in Shekou’s well-known international community.

Planners also intend to enhance Shekou’s industrial, commercial, residential, cultural, educational and health care functions.

Buji market to be converted into HQ base
2012-February-29 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE original site of Buji Farm Produce Wholesale Market will be converted into a location where businesses are encouraged to set up headquarters and an international food procurement center.

It will become a high-end entertainment venue in five to six years after the project is completed, a joint news conference by Luohu District Government, Shenzhen Planning and Land Resources Commission and Shenzhen Trade and Information Commission, said Monday.

It is expected to be a new economic growth point in Luohu District after it is completed.

The complete relocation of Buji Farm Produce Wholesale Market was officially launched last week and the remaining stall owners whose contracts had expired were encouraged to relocate as soon as possible, the conference said.

The 22-year-old Buji market had substandard facilities and infrastructure and the traffic in the surrounding area was often heavy.

Most of the wholesalers had relocated to Pinghu, Longgang District in September when Higreen Agricultural Produce Logistics Park was officially opened. The park, the largest of its kind in Shenzhen, now handles 4,500 tons of vegetables a day, 1.5 times more than the amount of Buji market.

A wholesaler Xu who sells around eight tons of vegetables a day praised the Higreen park for its convenient transport and high efficiency which had saved him much time.

“In Buji Farm Produce Wholesale Market, it takes about three hours to load and dispatch a truck of vegetables when there is a traffic jam, but here it only takes one hour,” Xu said.

The park is expected to handle 6 million tons of vegetables a year, with a transaction volume of 30 billion yuan (US$4.76 billion) when the project is completed.

Does anyone know what tower will be built opposite the north-east corner of the exhibition center (Intersection of FuHua San Lu/JinTian Lu)? They are drilling there already a long time and I can't find any thread here. The client supposed to be DingHe I believe.

I would have posted some pictures but seems I can't post any attachments so far.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, exactly. Thanks! Hm, another glass box for the CBD. Liked other renders better (sorry, have no pics) but the SZ government is always a little more conservative with their choices and approvals.

Is there a single thread here? The drilling and preparation on site already started a few month ago.

That project is 科技广场, final high 199.4m. Render:



Earlier in this thread I posted a number of projects in Shenzhen that I haven't seen threads for. Unfortunately in Shenzhen, like many Chinese cities, there's just plain too many projects to have constant updates in separate threads. I'd feel like I'd be spamming the Skyscrapers section of this site if I posted them all.

If you interested in projects that are happening in Shenzhen, I'd recommend Gaoloumi. It's in Chinese, but as a BBS it's pretty easy to understand if you know a little Chinese. Alternatively, you could also use Chrome to translate it.

Except for the famous smog [in Shenzhen].
I've lived for a while in China, and Shenzhen's smog is pretty much the least bad of any major Chinese city I've been to. While Shenzhen/Hong Kong have their bad days, it pales in comparison to Beijing.

A bad day pollution-wise in Shenzhen is when I can't see the Hong Kong side of Shenzhen Bay from my office building.

A bad day pollution-wise in Beijing is when I can't see across the street from my office building.

I agree. And In my opinion it gets better! I live in Shenzhen for 11 years, and these last years we've seen more and more blue sky days.
