Shenzhen Daily - May 10th:

New road to link Luohu, Futian
SHENZHEN plans to build a fast-track, express roadway parallel with Binhe Boulevard to relieve traffic congestion in Futian and Luohu districts.

The 20.3-kilometer road will link Luosha Road in Luohu with the Futian exit on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway. Most of the road will be built underground.

The plan for the 10-billion-yuan (US$1.6 billion) project soon will be submitted to city government for approval, Shenzhen’s transportation commission said Tuesday.

The road will be built along the north side of the Shenzhen River, under a patrol road along the Hong Kong border.

A central, 10.7-km section of the road, between the Huanggang and Wenjindu checkpoints, will be built underground. It’s not yet decided whether an eastern, 5.1-km section from Wenjindu to Luosha Road will be elevated or underground, because that decision involves designs for Metro Line 8.

A western, 4.5-km section will link the Huanggang Checkpoint and Futian exits along the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway.

Shenzhen officials started planning the road two years ago. It is still unknown when the project will start. The road is expected to greatly relieve the congestion of vehicles between Futian and Luohu.

Question: Is this hospital owned and operated by the city government of Shenzhen?

The link said it was Futian Hospital, right? That's south of Huaqiangbei, right next to what will be the Han Kwok City Center. They're doing some demolition behind the current Futian Hospital, so that would make.

Is this a mixed-used development area Scion?

Wait, do I see a structure that connects Shenzhen and Hong Kong?

Yes and no, it's a metro hub, not a border crossing

When is Qianhai gonna start with serious construction? Awesome project but it seems to be taking a long time to get started.

500-meter building planned for Qianhai


A 500-METER-TALL landmark building will be built in the 15-km Qianhai area in Nanshan District that pilots modern service industries between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

The building will be more than 50 meters taller than Shenzhen’s current tallest building, the 441.8-meter Kingkey 100 in Luohu District.

A cluster of landmark facilities will be built around the Qianhai building, including a convention and exhibition center, an opera house, the new financial center of the Pearl River Delta and an open-air theater. The buildings will create a new urban landscape on the formerly barren site, according to a comprehensive development plan for the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone that planning authorities released Monday.

According to the plan, part of the area covered by Pingnan Railway Co. will be renovated into an urban park. A 50.2-kilometer railway line that would link Nanshan with Pinghu in Longgang District could be canceled in the long-term plan.

But other rail lines will sprout like tentacles.

Twelve lines spanning 53 kilometers will cover the area, including five inner-city lines, three Metro lines that are under planning and two already-operating Metro lines, Luobao and Huanzhong.

Qianhai cooperation zone officials said the 1.4-million-square-meter project, including 11,000 apartments, will be finished this year.

Qianhai is positioned to become the focal point for innovations, developments and collaborations among modern service industries in Guangdong and Hong Kong. Qianhai will offer job opportunities for 800,000 people once infrastructure is completed. Its GDP is expected to reach 150 billion yuan (US$24 billion) by 2020.

Qianhai might not have Shenzhen’s tallest building for long, though. Kingkey 100 developers are developing plans to build a 666-meter building in the Caiwuwei financial and commercial center in Luohu District. (Han Ximin)

I think there's no final design for the supertall as of the moment.

Love the renders Scion.

I think the 500m+ supertall will be Shenzhen's second tallest building next to a 666m+ building (Kingkey, I guess)

Did they used Baidu Maps? Seems that the satellite view of Shenzhen looks much finer than Google Maps.
