They need such a big regeneration project even though the city is only 30 years old!

well the project is going to be built over an old raildroad base/logistic center.

Quote:
The areas Sungang and Qingshuihe form part of Luohu district, one of the city centers of Shenzhen. Both have become outdated since the warehouse and storage facilities there cannot fulfill contemporary needs anymore. Despite the vanishing importance as logistic center, rich urban life has established itself at its fringes and gradually infiltrates the area

These parts are the old factories that are now worn out and needs to get new life.
Hong Kong is definitively a city that needs a total renovation, especially the facades.

Kingkey to renovate Caiwuwei
2012-July-10 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

NEARLY 90 percent of shareholders for the urban village stock company of Caiwuwei, a financial hub in Luohu District, have agreed to select Shenzhen-based developer Kingkey Group to renovate the village.

Kingkey previously developed the city’s tallest building, the Kingkey 100, also in Luohu. The Caiwuwei village renovation will cover 120,000 square meters and include the demolition of a landmark hotel, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported yesterday, citing district reconstruction bureau chief Wang Cefei.

The village improvements will be part of Kingkey’s massive renovation project covering the entire Caiwuwei area, bordered by the Mixc shopping center to the east, Hongling Road to the west, Binhe Road to the south and Hongbao Road to the north.

Wang said the area’s renovation is the highlight of Luohu’s ongoing efforts to turn itself into an international consumption center. The area will host top international fashion institutions and brands, Wang added.

The renovations will include demolition of the Hotel Oriental Regent, which used to be one of Shenzhen’s 10 signature buildings. The Regent is expected to be replaced by a new landmark structure, the Daily said.

District officials plan to invest 100 billion yuan (US$16 billion) in the next five years to renovate five major areas: Caiwuwei, Sungang-Qingshuihe, Shuibei-Buxin, Shennandong and Liantang. The 48 renovation projects will add a total of 7.5 million square meters of commercial and industrial space, earlier reports by local Chinese-language newspapers said.

It's just Futian hospital, the same location as the existing one, next to the Hon Kwok tower and opposite Shanghai Hotel on Shennan Rd

City trying to revive Universiade Center
2012-July-16 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE city government is trying to stop the financial bleeding of the Universiade Center in Longgang District by installing commercial businesses and hiring a promotion team for the comprehensive sports facility that was built with more than 4 billion yuan (US$627 million) in government investment.

City officials have decided to introduce a professional marketing team to operate the center and will develop a 1-square-kilometer lot around it to support the center’s commercial development.

The center covers 290,000 square meters and received widespread praise for its world-class standards from young athletes who competed in last year’s Summer Universiade.

But the facility, which includes a stadium, gymnasium and swimming pool, has seldom been used by residents since the close of the Games because of its lack of supporting commercial facilities and inconvenient access by public transportation.

“We have to walk more than 2 kilometers from the nearest Metro station to the center. And a walk from the two nearest bus stops takes 10 minutes,” complained a Longgang resident surnamed Zhang. “It’s very inconvenient, especially during the hot summer.”

Zhang added that the center has no shops selling swimsuits, towels or slippers, and no other leisure or shopping facilities.

The center has opened all its sports facilities to residents. Using the pool and its amenities for two hours costs 30 yuan per person on weekdays. Using the football pitch at the facility’s center costs 2,000 yuan for two hours, according to the center’s management Web site.

Income from the facility’s use has been far overshadowed by daily maintenance costs.

The center’s annual income is about 20 million yuan, but maintenance spending, including water and electricity fees and employee costs, adds up to 50 million yuan per year, according to a report by the Guangzhou-based Nanfang Daily.

“It has become a trend to have professional companies operate large government-invested sports venues. Supporting commercial facilities should be distributed in and around the sports venue, by which a co-development of sports venues and the city could be achieved,” said Nan Ling, vice secretary general of Shenzhen Municipal Government.

Nan is in charge of a team that’s researching the post-Universiade operation of local government-owned sports venues.

In contrast to the center’s lack of use, another legacy of the Universiade, Shenzhen Bay Sports Center in Nanshan District, also known as the Spring Cocoon, has seen robust development after the Games, thanks to commercial operation by China Resources (Holdings) Co.

The company spent about 2.5 billion yuan on the center’s construction, based on a build-operate-transfer agreement with the government.

Almost 30 large activities, including concerts, sports events and exhibitions, were held at the Spring Cocoon in the three months after the Universiade last year.

The center has booked 57 commercial activities this year. Commercial facilities such as restaurants, sports clubs and training institutions have opened in the center.

Channel closed for pipeline construction
2012-July-18 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

TONGGU Channel, the busiest waterway off western Shenzhen, will be closed today through Saturday for the construction of undersea gas pipelines.

The pipelines are part of China’s second west-east natural gas transmission pipeline, which extends about 8,600 kilometers from Xinjiang to Guangdong and Hong Kong. The project is designed to transport 30 billion cubic meters of gas annually.

The undersea piping in Tonggu Channel will extend 30.1 kilometers and be able to handle 6 billion cubic meters of gas annually. Some parts of the piping will be built 27 meters below sea level, the deepest undersea piping in the world.

The piping is expected to start sending gas to Hong Kong by the end of 2012.

The undersea piping of the west-east project passes through several channels off western Shenzhen, which are the busiest and most complicated waters in China, carrying more than 500,000 ships each year. More than 100 passenger ships travel between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao on the channels each day.

Tonggu Channel is a must-use route for large ships entering ports in western Shenzhen. When the channel is closed for pipeline construction, large ships will have to use Ma Wan Channel in Hong Kong. Ships that cannot use Ma Wan Channel will have to stop at other ports.

I've taught at IA, their mall staff last I heard was ferociously preparing for a September opening, delayed from June (their original target).

Hopefully once IA Mall and Futian Station are both finished, we'll see some movement on the Crystal Island Project, although I've heard that the Futian Government is pretty light on cash from the Gangxia Redevelopment Project.

When is Futian Station planning to be opened? I've heard by the end of the year, is that still on track?

well

the tunnel between shenzhen north station and futian station is still awaiting to get through

an important process for construction will be pumped out all the water of the lake at the bottom of Lianhua Hill... if you have seen that, it means the tunnel is processing to futian station underneath that lake...

hopefully futian station will be opened before the end of next year...

I'm surprised that land-thirst HK didn't urbanized this area too.

SHENZHEN DAILY - JULY 24TH

New convention center planned

Quote:
A NEW convention and exhibition center may be built near the city’s airport in Bao’an District, the former science, industry, trade and information technology commission said Sunday.

The commission recently divided into several entities but its members still use its former name.

The new center could cover more than 200,000 square meters and is expected to be built south of the airport, in the city’s transportation hub and harbor area, yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

In a letter to the city’s deputies to the Municipal People’s Congress (MPC), the commission said the city’s current convention and exhibition center can’t meet Shenzhen’s increasing demands for large-scale events. The existing center has 105,000 square meters of indoor exhibition space.

“Cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou have at least six large indoor exhibition centers. The total coverage of the centers in each city is more than 300,000 square meters,” the commission’s letter said. “But due to a lack of space, several popular fairs in Shenzhen, such as the China Hi-Tech Fair, have not been able to expand for nine years.”

The new convention and exhibition center and its attached hotel project have already been approved in city plans and will be started soon this year, the Daily reported.

Five- and four-star hotels are planned to connect with the new convention center and create a regional destination for business, shopping and exhibitions, the commission said.

The commission has not yet made its final decision on the center’s location.

“Bao’an District will be an ideal place for the new convention and exhibition center as it is close to neighboring Hong Kong, Dongguan, and Guangzhou and has many key industries and companies,” MPC deputy Ouyang Quan said.

Housing inventory rising
2012-July-24 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

NEW apartments totaling more than 4 million square meters of floor space are expected to hit the local market in the second half of this year, but housing prices will remain stable to attract more buyers.

City housing statistics show there were 16,405 new apartments covering 1.45 million square meters on the market in the first half of this year, while 46 new residential projects with a total floor space of about 4.08 million square meters will join the crowded market in the second half of this year.

“Total coverage of the city’s new apartments is expected to reach 5.53 million square meters, which is the highest in the past three years,” said He Xiaoli, vice general manager of the Shenzhen branch of Centaline Property.

Most of the new apartments are in Longgang and Bao’an districts. A few are in Futian and Nanshan districts, according to yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily.

Although it is not a busy season for the city’s real estate market, many developers decided to put their new projects on the market earlier this year, He told the newspaper.

Many developers planned to increase prices by 5 to 10 percent, but those plans were suspended after a series of discussions and votes.

“Although apartment sales have rebounded slightly this year, it is still not the right time to increase prices. Many potential buyers may give up their plan to purchase a home once prices go up,” said Deng Zhiwang, director of the real estate research institute of Shenzhen Polytechnic. “Under current circumstances, developers should focus on selling more apartments instead of trying to make more profits from each sale.”

National authorities recently reaffirmed determination to curb China’s rising home prices.

“It can be seen that the government is still very confident in capping housing prices,” He said.

However, many real estate developers and agencies are optimistic about the development of Shenzhen’s housing market in the second half of this year.

SZ to upgrade flood drainage facilities
2012-July-25 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

According to Liang Yi, vice director of the disaster relief office, Shenzhen currently can’t handle rainfalls as severe as those that struck Beijing over the weekend.

“Shenzhen has a high density of buildings. It’s also very close to sea level, so under heavy rains seawater could enter the city. In cases of heavy rains like what happened in Beijing, the flooding could be more serious here,” he said.

Typhoon Vicente landed in Chixi Town of Taizhou at 4:15 a.m. yesterday, bringing torrential rains and gales to Shenzhen. The typhoon had degraded to a strong tropical storm by 9 a.m., but still brought intermittent downpours throughout the day, especially in the city’s western and central areas.

Shenzhen will continue to see heavy rains today as Vicente’s influence lingers. The rain should dwindle later this week. Hot weather is forecast to return starting Sunday.
