Point A is Qianhai (you can see all the empty plots there)
Point B is Futian CBD (Shenzhen's main CBD)

Qianhai isn't just a new CBD, it's a Special Economic Zone/Special Financial Test Zone.

Airport fined for expansion violations
2013-January-10 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN International Airport has been fined 200,000 yuan (US$32,118) and ordered to suspend work on an expansion of its future Terminal 3 and runway extensions.

The airport started construction of the expansion and extension projects before receiving approval from environmental protection authorities, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said online Tuesday.

The fine is the largest that environmental authorities could legally impose in the applicable category of violations, officials said.

Airport officials told Shenzhen Daily yesterday that they are rectifying the situation according to the letter of punishment, but didn’t say whether the punishment would affect the projects.

The airport’s environmental impact report said Terminal 3 is designed with a capacity of 30 million passengers a year. The terminal’s main building was expanded from 350,000 square meters to 450,000 square meters, however, and two 3,400-meter runways were each extended 200 meters northward to accommodate future use of A380 airbuses.

The Shenzhen airport started construction of Terminal 3 in February 2009, before receiving approval for the expansion projects.

The terminal’s main building is nearing completion and scheduled to open this year. According to an airport employee who declined to be named, the airport and related government agencies are taking measures to remedy the situation and communicating with environmental authorities, with Terminal 3 planned to open as scheduled.

Officials deny Qianhai reports
Thursday, January 24, 2013
The Standard

Shenzhen-related stocks lost their upside momentum yesterday after Qianhai officials denied media reports that China International Marine Containers (2039), China Merchants Group and Shenzhen International Holdings (0152) are the biggest landlords in the pilot financial district.

CIMC slumped 2.43 percent to HK$16.06 and China Merchants Holdings (International) (0144) lost 4.2 percent to HK$27.2. Shenzhen International fell as much as 4 percent before closing 1.8 percent higher at HK$1.11.

"We are still in talks with some firms on the using right for some sites in the district, but there are no so- called landlords in Qianhai," Qianhai administration spokesman Wang Jinxia said yesterday.

Residents protest river reclamation
2013-January-25 08:53
Shenzhen Daily



RESIDENTS are protesting plans to fill a section of Xixiang River in Bao’an District in order to build a bar street, in what residents have called an illegal reclamation of the waterway.

The 600-meter section of river is south of Baoyuan Bridge on Baoyuan Road in Xixiang Subdistrict. It’s enclosed by fences and a dozen pillars have been erected on the river’s east side, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported. Nearly half of the riverbed has been filled with earth and construction materials, such as sandbags, concrete, iron bars and bricks, were randomly stacked or piled.

A resident surnamed Wang said work on the river started in late September. Nearby residents didn’t know until recently that a bar street, rather than a flood-control project, would be built.

No information indicates the project’s name, construction contractor or builder, except for a sign on a fence that says “Guangdong Provincial Architectural Engineering Machinery Construction Co.”

A resident surnamed Zhang said the river has been narrowed to half its width after six months of construction.

“A flood could easily hit the area,” Zhang said. “A bar street may also lead to heavy water pollution, which means that the hundreds of millions of yuan spent on the river’s treatment would be squandered.”

A warning sign along a riverbank says any construction work that impedes flood control is forbidden along the waterway.

Residents have wondered why the subdistrict’s water affairs center, which is 200 meters away, hasn’t taken any action to stop the project.

Xixiang River, which runs through central Xixiang from Tiegang Reservoir to Zhujiang River, serves as an important flood-relief waterway in Bao’an District. Since 2006, a total of 250 million yuan (US$40 million) has been invested in treating the river, which had been polluted by industrial sewage and garbage.

According to national water law, construction work within a river management area that impedes flood control or threatens river dikes is illegal. Violations can lead to fines of up to 100,000 yuan.

Metro projects causing complaints
2013-January-22 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

RESIDENTS are complaining about pollution and congestion caused by Metro expansion projects that are in full swing across the city.

PM2.5 readings near some construction sites are far exceeding the national standard, local Chinese-language media reported this week.

Readings reached 100 micrograms per cubic meter, for example, at a construction site for the future Metro Line 9 at the intersection of Qiaocheng Road East and Baishi Road in Nanshan District.

The national PM2.5 standard is less than 75 micrograms per cubic meter.

“In addition to congestion, which is especially bad during rush hours, Metro projects also are deteriorating local air quality,” complained a resident surnamed Tang of the Bihaiyuntian housing estate in Nanshan.

Tang said he has to clean dust in his apartment once a day, even though dump trucks are covering dirt with canvas and nearby roads are being sprayed with water.

The partial closure of Baishi Road also has drawn criticism from residents, because of the resulting congestion.

“Congestion often happens because of Metro projects,” acknowledged a resident surnamed Ye. “I prefer to stay in the office for more than an hour after work to avoid traffic.”

Roads in the Terra Square area of Binhe Boulevard in Futian District have been narrowed for the Metro 7 project, creating congestion in morning rush hours.

The Chegongmiao area in Futian likely is experiencing the worst congestion in the city, because of simultaneous work on Metro lines 7, 9 and 11. The Chegongmiao station will be the largest Metro transport hub in the city when the project is completed.

The Xiangmihu Flyover access road for eastbound drivers to Shennan Boulevard will be closed in February because of Metro work.

Shenzhen’s rail construction office said residents can complain to the city’s environmental authority about pollution caused by Metro projects, and to the city’s transport commission about construction that illegally occupies public roads.

But the rail office noted that while the massive Metro projects inevitably will disrupt people’s lives in the short term, living conditions will be greatly improved after projects are completed in 2016.

Embattled housing project nears start
2013-January-29 08:53
Shenzhen Daily













RENOVATION of the embattled Ludancun housing estate in Luohu District will soon get under way, 12 years after the city government decided to demolish the buildings for safety concerns.

The renewal project will involve 30 seven-story buildings in the Ludancun and Honglingnanyuan areas, with a total floor area of 111,451 square meters. A compensation plan for property owners has been put up for review and public opinions are being sought. Residents can submit their opinions in writing or call the administration office in charge of land requisition and compensation for homeowners before March 5, the Daily Sunshine reported over the weekend.

Construction of the Ludancun housing estate, an affordable housing project for the city’s civil servants, was finished in 1989 but the development has shown signs of wear since 1996, largely from unstable sea sand used in its construction.

The renovation’s initial plan, issued more than a decade ago, said Ludancun homeowners could be compensated in one of two ways: either with a home on the original site after renovations or with relocation to a housing estate in Nanshan District.

Since that plan was approved in 2001, the municipal government has announced compensation packages in 2003, 2009 and 2012.

But in a 2012 opinion survey of more than 1,000 households in the estate, by the city’s housing and construction bureau, 65 percent of villagers rejected the compensation package.

A new compensation package has been welcomed by a larger portion of villagers and allocates the area of a compensatory home according to the net interior area of an owner’s demolished home. In addition, the temporary relocation subsidies are increased from 40 yuan (US$6.40) per month to 55 yuan per month.

Elderly homeowners have an option to choose compensation with a remote home because the renovation project could take three years or more, authorities said.

But a resident surnamed Liu said he was not going to move to a remote home.

“We have been living here since the village was built and have become used to life here. We are too old to move,” Liu said, adding that many residents felt the same.

Liu, a retired architectural engineer, said the compensatory area should be increased because the new home would take up more room than the old one under current anti-earthquake requirements.

Liu also expressed concern that the new, 30-story buildings could be dwarfed by adjacent buildings in the future. He also suggested better vegetation and lighting designs because the estate is located at a traffic hub.(Anna Zhao, Gong Haoying)

Construction of SZ Bay piers to restart
2013-January-30 08:53
Shenzhen Daily



CONSTRUCTION of pedestrian piers near Shenzhen Bay Bridge will restart with new contractors and is scheduled for completion by the end of this year after months of delay caused by a planning error, public works officials said yesterday.

Work on the piers was suddenly suspended last September, with contractors offering no information about future plans and leaving dozens of huge concrete pillars in the bay along the bridge.

Liu Zhida, spokesman and vice chief of the city’s public works bureau, told reporters during a trip to Shenzhen Bay yesterday that the initial work contract had been terminated and bidding for the project would be renewed.

He apologized for the project’s suspension and said the cost of the project could increase because of a new design that adds minor changes to the piers, for safety reasons.

The public has expressed suspicions that the initial construction followed problematic designs after starting in March 2010, but Liu said the new changes were caused by increased safety requirements rather than earlier problems.

The north pier is within 200 meters of Shenzhen Bay Bridge, despite road laws that prohibit construction that could threaten the safety of major bridges.

Public works officials said the construction was unilaterally halted by the operator because it disagreed with revised designs that would increase labor and material costs.

Lawmaker Wu Limin suggested that experts and citizens be invited to participate in the planning of public projects.

Another lawmaker, Zhu Xiulan, asked that more efforts be made in preparatory work for the plans and designs.

“Why should the designs of the piers be ‘optimized’ after they have all the experts’ approval with construction already under way?” Zhu asked.

Huang Xiang, also a legislator, questioned the piers’ necessity, given their cost of 48 million yuan (US$7.6 million).

“We apologize for the delay in the project and promise to publicize timely information about construction of any public projects in the future,” Liu said at yesterday’s news briefing.

Li Yi, a local political adviser, put the unfinished piers in the media spotlight during the annual session of the city advisory body earlier this month.

He hoped the action taken by the bureau would start a new practice of publicizing more information about public projects.

“The unfinished pier project has already been a waste of taxpayers’ money,” Li said.

I just came across this intersting article about Baishizhou. The blogger is posting frequently about the urban villages in Shenzhen. I highly recommend to browse a little bit around on her blog after reading this article.

http://maryannodonnell.wordpress.com...l-plan-online/

And don't forget to watch the video (see link bellow) linked to the article. It's really sad to see the villages disappearing. I love those places. If even Baishizhou suffer the same fate as other villages before then I highly doubt that villages within the (old) SEZ will survive the next decade. It is one of the most dense areas in Shenzhen.

Given Shenzhen's urban history dates from the 1980's, what's actually unique about these villages that have a relatively short history?

A multi-disciplinary design team featuring Alan Dunlop, John Thompson and Partners (JTP) and Gillespies has made the final shortlist of 3 for a 150-hectare seaside resort in Shenzhen. Organised by the Binhai Authority of Shenzhen, the project will create an international tourist destination and ecological seaside resort on the Dapeng Peninsula. The brief called for designs which work with the existing terrain and ecological conditions of the area. The project seeks to establish a major conservation zone for ecological and biological resources. A demonstration area for China’s marine and scientific development industries is also planned.

Pingshan to pilot ‘smart city’ project
2013-January-31 08:53
Shenzhen Daily


Source : http://eng.psxq.gov.cn/content/2012-...nt_7337406.htm

PINGSHAN New Area has been chosen to pilot a “smart city” project launched by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, the Pingshan government said on the sidelines of its annual work meeting yesterday.

The project includes 90 regions across China in its first phase and is expected to bring new investment to industries developing Internet of Things, cloud computing and other urban management trends.

China Development Bank has promised to provide these regions with low-interest loans totaling 80 billion yuan (US$13 billion) for “smart city” construction in the next three to five years.

Pingshan New Area is the only Shenzhen location chosen as one of the 90 initial regions to pilot the project. Five other regions in Guangdong Province have been chosen, including the city of Zhuhai, the Panyu and Luogang districts in Guangzhou, and Shunde District and Lecong Township in the city of Foshan. Chaoyang District in Beijing and Pudong New Area in Shanghai also are on the list.

The news is already boosting confidence in Pingshan’s development. Yesterday, talks of possible housing price hikes in Pingshan, where housing prices remain much lower than in central Shenzhen, appeared on several real estate forums.

Pingshan, which has been designated as a “new growth pole” of Shenzhen, grew at a rate of 15.2 percent in 2012. The new area is rapidly improving its infrastructure and attracting investments to catch up with the more prosperous areas of Shenzhen.

The new area’s government will try to complete the main construction of Danzi Road West and start building Nanping Expressway Phase III and Pingyan Expressway this year, said Yang Xusong, Party chief of Pingshan New Area. Yang promised to build more hospitals, hotels, shopping malls and cultural centers in the new area.

Too many identical towers in China. Need some more diversity.
