True that. And there are more proposed and upcoming projects coming to Shenzhen real soon so I guess let's keep an eye for these exciting developments.

This is the Shenzhen Southern International Plaza (深圳南方国际广场), on hold for years.


Current status, by 1788111


They've posted this render. No info, no sources, just the render. Please help me to confirm there's something official about revising/reapproving it, so that we can open a thread.
80-90 floors I'd say. Around 400m.

While not amazing, that would certainly be a massive improvement over the old version (which looks like something out of Dubai).

Station coming

FUTIAN Station and the Guangdong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed rail will be completed within the year, authorities said.

Futian Station, at the intersection of Yitian Road and Shennan Boulevard with three stories underground, will be the only underground railway station in a central business district, or CBD, on the Chinese mainland.

The 2,412-km high-speed rail line starts in Guangzhou and ends in West Kowloon in Hong Kong. The 26-km Hong Kong section will be finished by 2015.

@zorg: what's wrong with the project developer in respect to the project? Is it something to do with fundings or what?

The reclamation process isn't fully completed yet, the soil needs time to settle before further work can proceed, they still need to put in utility structures. Although about half of the plots have already been sold to companies/developers.

Someone should open a thread for Qianhai + Houhai, similar to Yujiapu and Xiangluowan in Tianjin

I've read that Rockefeller is planning a 999m tower in Qianhai. We should open a thread as soon as they release some more clear data.
Shenzhen is getting a tsunami of new projects, undoubtly becoming China's skyscraper capital leaping far ahead of any other city.

The news at Shenzhen Daily says the idea of the 999m tower is headed by China Investment Corporation, maybe Rockefeller is involved too, I don't know.

Shenzhen has a ton of construction planned but I'm not super impressed with the current pace of actual construction...still extremely good for a developed city but let's not get ahead of ourselves as Chongqing, Wuhan, and Tianjin are all growing faster.
