Low-rise plandisapproved AROUND 60 percent of online comments on the design of a building on Shennan Road in Luohu District expressed disapproval.
The design, a combination of a 666-meter high skyscraper and a 666-meter-wide low-rise, was made by the Shenzhen branch of China Academy of Urban Planning and Design. Netizens said it might harm the landscape of Shennan Road and were suspicious of the use of a public area for commercial development.
The massive project is part of the district’s urban renovation plan. The low-rise complex, connected by urban corridors, will go across Shennan Road.
“To save land, I think it could be built underground. The complex actually occupies public space and puts the developer’s interest above the public interest,” a netizen lamented.
The academy said in an earlier interview that the design could save space and land for development in Luohu District.
Yet 30 percent of netizens support the plan, saying the project will be spectacular and the corridor will be a landmark and help Luohu to become a center for international consumption and leisure.
District officials plan to invest 100 billion yuan (US$16 billion) in the next five years to renovate five areas: Caiwuwei, Sungang-Qingshuihe, Shuibei-Buxin, Shennandong and Liantang.

I've seen this sea of cranes and scaffoldings a few weeks ago. It's south-west of the SZ Bay stadium, isn't it? But I have no idea what will be built over there.

Nah, that area's Houhai, another area in Nanshan with a forest of 100-200m buildings going up. That said, on most of those projects they're still excavating, I believe.

This area is to the south west of Kejiyuan, and the north of Hai'ancheng.

City planning first tramcar
2012-April-9 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN officials are planning the city’s first tramcar, or trolley, in the Sungang-Qingshuihe area of northwest Luohu District, according to draft redevelopment plans for the area.

Once the biggest public warehousing area in Shenzhen, Sungang-Qingshuihe has seen its development strained by low-efficiency use of its old factories and warehouses, a backward transportation system and profusion of low-level industries.

The tramcar is expected to run on abandoned rail lines in the area, passing roads including Bao’an North Road, Liyuan Road and Lirui Road, the Daily Sunshine reported yesterday.

In addition to providing convenient transportation for shopping and other leisure activities, the tramcar’s introduction will be intended to preserve historical and cultural sites in the area as part of the overall redevelopment, the city’s urban planning, land and resources commission said.

However, tramcars will not become a major means of public transportation in the area, which will be turned into an international commercial center, a creative enterprise hub and an urban leisure area. The redeveloped area will cover 12 million square meters and house 220,000 residents, according to plans.

The planned Metro lines 7 and 9 will pass through the area and are expected to start running in 2015.

Inter-city railways connecting Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong also will pass through the area. Residents will be able to reach the center of the area without driving thanks to the combination of tramcars, buses, and Metro and railway trains, the Daily Sunshine said.

The city’s draft plans also include 40,000 new parking spots, mainly in newly built facilities. Five public parking facilities are planned for the area, along with cycling and walking tracks.

An international request for plan proposals was conducted in 2010 and generated 82 applications from around the world.(Martin Li)

Public comment

The city has posted draft plans for the redevelopment of the Sungang-Qingshuihe area of northwest Luohu District online at www.szpl.gov.cn and www.szlh.gov.cn, and is seeking residents’ suggestions and opinions before April 30.

waow, this building look so great. I really like the concept with the global curve of the building and the twist.
I did not see any date. Is it in construction or still in planing? When will it be finished?
Thanks

Here is some more information from the Hong Kong government :

http://www.lt-hyw-bcp.com.hk/eng/home.htm

Scheduled completion in 2018.

Looks like most of the building is actually in Hong Kong territory, so it might make more sense for it to be in the Hong Kong projects thread.

Shenzhong Corridor construction to start 2015
2012-April-18 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE construction of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor, which will give Shenzhen direct road access to the western Pearl River Delta, will start in 2015.

The 30-billion-yuan (US$4.76 billion) project will link the two economic circles of the Pearl River Delta and stimulate economic development in the area.

Covering about 55 kilometers, the corridor will have eight lanes and a speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour, the corridor will be connected with Zhongjiang Expressway in Zhongshan, Guangshen Coastal Expressway to the south of Shenzhen’s airport, and Jihe Expressway to the east of the airport. It will be finished in 2020.

Zhongshan transport commission had completed 24 pieces of research on the project and the bidding for design of the corridor will start this year, Zhongshan officials told a visiting delegation from Shenzhen headed by city Party chief Wang Rong and Mayor Xu Qin on Monday.

“The corridor will link the Qianhai area in Shenzhen and Cuiheng New Zone in Zhongshan. Zhongshan could be the backyard for Shenzhen’s industrial transfer and strategic adjustment. It is also good for Zhongshan to upgrade its own industries,” said professor Liang Shilun, executive vice president of Zhongshan Economy Research Institute.

As the corridor will go either above or beneath the mouth of the Pearl River, or both, research has been launched relating to issues such as river navigation, flight altitude control at Shenzhen’s airport and flood control at the mouth of the Pearl River.

Anybody has any news about the Crystal Island project?
http://www.dezeen.com/2009/06/17/she...a-and-urbanus/

It's really the missing link for pedestrian between the south of ShenNan Road and the north of it. Perhaps are they waiting for the YiTian-ShenNan road bridge to be completed before starting anything? Anybody?

This seems like a very valuable project.

It's competing against the Hong Kong - Zhuhai - Macau Bridge.

It seems like it will be nice to have a central over-water link so people in the area don't have to travel to Hong Kong or Guangzhou to cross the Pearl River. Will this really take away from the "HZM" bridge? If they have a passenger rail line going across this link even better.

Shenzhen port is competing against Hong Kong port to access the western part of the delta. The rail line will not likely be that crucial since most cargo transport is still by truck.

I see, I had a feeling that the link to Zhongshan would mostly be for commuters instead of cargo. I think the extra link will always help with congestion in the area.

Cross-city commutes are not likely popular. The PRD is primarily a factory area, and factories usually have housing on-site for workers. Their wages are simply not high enough to afford renting outside.
