Those article's headlines made it confusing for me as well. I think they are saying that the Rockefeller family wants to build a Rockefeller center at Qianhai, but the "999 meters" part is referring to China Investment Corp's vision.


Overall, we shouldn't put our hopes too high for this 999m tower, Qianhai has very strict height restriction because it's within the airport's flight path, most of Qianhai has a 200 meter height limit, only the eastern half of the Guimiao zone allows for the planned 500m and 400m towers. Lou Jiwei is the chairman of China Investment Corporation (China's sovereign wealth fund in charge of investing China's gigantic forex reserve), he told the Shenzhen government that he wanted to invest that money in a 999 meter tower in Qianhai, and have it named "Center of China". But the government rejected his vision because of the flight path issues (I remember something like that from some articles in March), also Beijing would have a raging tantrum at the name if it was to become reality.


Other than that. HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Citi, Cheung Kong, JP Morgan, KPMG, PwC, Hang Seng, COFCO have all confirmed offices in Qianhai. JP Morgan plans to have their Asia Pacific headquarters there. 21 Companies from Hong Kong also have offices planned in Qianhai, 16 of them will have their Mainland China headquarters there. The investment sum from private corporations so far total more than 10 billion USD.

Shenzhen is not a developed city, it is just more developed than the cities you mentioned. Shenzhen's GDP per capita (PPP) is around $24000.

That right there is the sound of a bubble popping... the number of 1,000'+ buildings underway in Shenzhen is ridiculous (although it would be amazing if they were indeed finished). The number of holes 'destined' for supertalls in China is increasing exponentially, yet nothing is rising out of them...

Well you can buy lot more in China that in US for an equivalent amount of US dollars. I hardly see how one can not call Shenzhen a developed city...

Note that I wrote PPP which already is adjusted for purchasing power parity.
Shenzhens nominal GDP pe capita would be about 15000 USD.

IF Shenzhen was a country, would you call it a developed country?

I wouldn't because the city still has a lot of areas under construction and the villages in the outskirts look like a mess. Per capita isn't high enough yet. Give it about 10 years.

So we should expect tens of 200m+ towers there, right?

Most likely, in the Guimiao area there could easily be a sea of 200m+

Actually if we counted built+u/c+proposed Shenzhen may be already the world's leading city by >200m towers.

You are right! I've just complied a preliminary list of all 200+ U/C + App + Pro + Conc Pro, it comes to an insane 77 towers! 24 of them being supertalls . Of course some of them won't be built for a long time.

Anyway here it is, in Chinese anyway

Do you think the 成建围 Center will be formally launched soon? Also I've read Kingkey developer wants to build a new big one, but I'm not sure if they were refering to the same thing.

城建 has a very poor track record in Shenzhen, their feature project 城建购物公园 is an abysmal failure. Their 450+ in Caiwuwei will most likely start way after Kingkey's 666m Jingdu makeover.

Surreal OCT Design Museum completes in Shenzhen projecting dappled light pattern onto the walls, reminiscent of a flock of birds

This reflective design museum is the work of Studio Pei-Zhu, a Beijing-based architecture studio whose creative expression is clear despite the youth of the practice. Located 300m from the shore, this 5,000 sq m civic complex was inspired by the smooth stones of the beachfront although the architects admit that there is something other-worldly about the design. It is almost UFO-like in its form as the panelled reflective surface and egg-shaped design are reminiscent of a spaceship.

The OCT Design Museum is host to fashion shows, product design exhibitions and conceptual automotive shows so the architects were required to provide a basic yet surreal exhibition space for these very different styles of design. Their response was an unbroken, white, curving interior.

Internally, the OCT Design Museum is a weightless space designed to act as a blank canvas for the artwork on display. Continuously curving walls are a simple backdrop and cast no shadow and offer no depth. Studio Pei-Zhu details: “The result is a surreal borderless space that seems to go on into the infinite, similar to the feeling of a James Turrell installation. The effect is like being in a cloud or dense fog. The building becomes a blank surreal background, with only small triangular windows scattered randomly, as if they were birds in flight.”

On the first floor of the building, visitors will find an entry lobby and café space, with the main exhibition areas located on the second and third levels. Here, the basic white curving walls are dotted with dappled sunlight which is permitted though clusters of triangular windows, animating the blank space but not detracting from the artwork on offer.

Beautiful, inspiring, ambitious designs.

I browse through the various China threads and just shake my head at the scope, scale and design.

Most people in the rest of the world really have no idea was is transpiring in China, surely few Americans do...

City University planning approved
2012-June-14 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE city government has approved the planning and construction of a new educational institution initially known as Shenzhen City University, city education officials announced in a five-year development plan approved Tuesday.

The university primarily will offer undergraduate education to students with Shenzhen hukou, or permanent residency status. Many details of the university remain under discussion, according to the development plan, which also laid out an array of educational improvements and projects across Shenzhen.

The Shenzhen campus of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, for example, will open in 2015 with an initial enrollment of about 2,400 students.

Enrollment at the Shenzhen Tourism College of Jinan University is expected to reach 3,000 students in 2015 following an expansion.

Eighty new postgraduate programs and three to five new doctoral programs will be offered at Shenzhen University (SZU) by 2015, while the university’s Xili campus is about to begin construction.

Enrollment at the South University of Science and Technology of China (SUST) is expected to reach 2,600 in 2015. Majors offered at SUST will include engineering, various sciences, economics and management.

The city government is encouraging more top international universities and colleges to set up campuses in Shenzhen. (Wang Yuanyuan)

The city also plans to build about 10 special institutes, jointly organized by top universities and companies in areas such as information technology, biology, new energies, new materials and finance.

Meanwhile, enrollment at Shenzhen Polytechnic is expected to reach 30,000 in 2015, when there will be about 15,000 students at the Shenzhen Institute of Information Technology.

Eleven high schools will finish reconstruction projects in the next five years, bringing the number of the city’s high school students to 130,000. New high schools will be built in Bao’an, Longgang, Guangming and Pingshan, the plan said.

One or two well-known overseas high schools will be invited to open branches in Shenzhen, offering high-end international education to those who plan to study abroad. (Wang Yuanyuan)

The development plan projects that about 900,000 students will be receiving compulsory education in the city by 2015. A football training facility, entertainment and performance center and technological education center all are planned for construction to benefit the growing student population.

The plan also addresses the stresses of children’s education, by stating that teachers will no longer be allowed to give homework to students in Grade 3 or lower at primary schools.

There will be 1,250 kindergartens with a total of 350,000 students in Shenzhen by 2015. Five percent of the city’s annual budget will be used for preschools and early childhood education, the plan said.
