High-speed rail start date undecided
30 October 2013
Shenzhen Daily

THE opening date, operation plan and fares are still undecided for the high-speed rail line between Shenzhen and Xiamen because tests haven’t been completed, Guangzhou Railway Group Corp. said yesterday.

The statement was a response to media reports that said the Xiamen-Shenzhen (Xiashen) express line would open Dec. 26, coinciding with national railway authorities’ start of new schedules.

Xiashen Railway Guangdong Co. said testing should be completed at the end of November, with speeds for the final test faster than 275 kilometers per hour.

Some newspapers quoted an unidentified official with the railway operator as saying the high-speed rail will probably open in January, because some facilities along the line still need improvements.

With a designed speed of 250 kilometers per hour, the 502-kilometer Xiamen-Shenzhen high-speed railway will have 20 stations, including 11 in Guangdong Province, and is expected to shorten the travel time between Shenzhen and Xiamen to three hours.

The line is part of China’s high-speed southeastern coastal corridor, from Shanghai to Shenzhen, one of the eight major corridors in China’s high-speed rail network.

In other rail news, China’s railway survey and design institute released the environmental impact assessment for the Jiangmen-Maoming high-speed rail line, part of the Shenzhen-Maoming high-speed line, Monday.

Construction of the 390-kilometer Shenzhen-Maoming line will start before the end of the year and be completed in 2017. It will cut the trip to Maoming to Shenzhen to three hours from the present six-to-nine hours.

“Shenzhen-Maoming high-speed rail line is an important part of the coastal corridor and an express link for western Guangdong and Pearl River Delta cities,” Li Chunhong, director of the provincial development and reform commission, has previously said.

The Shenzhen Stock Exchange tower is so overrated. It so unbalanced, nothing is cool, or cutting edge about that building.

You may not like it. But you would probably change your mind if you were right below it. It is impressive. And yes it is cutting edge as it is one of the biggest over hanging structure in the world.

Anyone saying that it's not impressive most probably never saw it in real life. I can only agree that it's a stunning building. Certainly one of the best skyscrapers in Shenzhen.

The stock exchange has been designed by multiple architects from OMA. Not even sure Rem Koolhaas himself did something here. I spoke with an architect once who did the facade. I actually showed him photo's of it on skyscrapercity and was very surprised about the forum

And one thing we can't notice on the pictures is the level of quality of the materials and construction. According to some friends of mine they used the best material and technics for this building.

Fangda Business Headquarters
http://www.archdaily.com/445801/fang...en-architects/

Huasen Architects (HSA) have been announced winners of the Fangda Headquarters competition. The winning proposal, located in Shenzhen, China, reshapes the existing site into a 300,000 sqm vortex of retail, office, entertainment and recreation spaces, stemming off a high-tech research and technical development hub. Competition requirements called for the integration of a bus terminal predicated on government officials’ calculations that 55% of users would arrive by bus.

Yann, from the ArchDaily link, there's this image:

Yeah, it's east of European Town and north of Portofino/OCT.


Another good news:
New road to shorten trips over riverTHE Shenzhen-Zhongshan corridor project, which will give Shenzhen drivers much-desired direct road access to the western Pearl River Delta, will start as early as 2015.
The expressway will link with Shenzhen International Airport’s Terminal C through a flyover accessing Guangzhou-Shenzhen Riverside Expressway, according to a construction plan that Shenzhen’s transportation commission released online this week.
The future expressway is expected to cut the driving time to Zhongshan City to 30 minutes, from the current two hours, when the 24-km route opens in 2020. The corridor will include a 17.19-km bridge and a 6.7-km underwater tunnel.
The expressway’s landing site on the Shenzhen side of the river will link with the riverside expressway. On the other side of the Pearl River, it will land on Ma’an Island in Cuiheng New Area in Zhongshan, after spanning 22.4 kilometers over the Pearl River. The expressway will connect with Hengmen Tollgate on the Zhongjiang Expressway in Zhongshan.
The route originally was designed to land near Huanghe Tollgate on Jihe Expressway in Xixiang in Bao’an District on the Shenzhen side and near Xinlong Tollgate in Zhongjiang Expressway on the Zhongshan side. The change of landing sites cut the route’s length from 51 km to 24 km and will drastically reduce budget costs, the plan states.

Airport doubling size of cargo area
2013-November-13 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE first phase of Shenzhen International Airport’s western cargo area is located south of the new Terminal C, opens Nov. 28 and covers 77,000 square meters, more than double the size of the current cargo area for domestic flights, airport authorities said Monday.

Along with the existing eastern cargo area, which is located south of Terminal B and spans 215,000 square meters, the airport’s cargo- and mail-handling capacity is expected to reach 2 million tons a year, authorities said.

The western cargo area eventually will cover 228,000 square meters and be the main area for handling cargo for all domestic and non-commercial flights.

The city government gave Shenzhen’s airport approval in October to conduct cross-border e-business on a trial basis. The city is applying to the General Administration of Customs to handle export business from e-commerce on a trial basis. That approval is expected to be granted at the end of the year, local Chinese-language media reported.

According to the airport’s 12th five-year program, cargo and mail turnover at the airport is expected to reach 1 million tons by the end of 2015. Express cargo delivery will account for more than 60 percent of the total cargo business, similar to the level in developed countries such as the United States.

Shenzhen to have 5 more super-tall buildings
5 December 2013
Shenzhen Daily

FIVE more super-tall architectural structures are either under construction or planning in Shenzhen, which already boasts one of China’s highest skyscrapers, a latest report by Jones Lang LaSalle’s Shenzhen branch said.

The one under construction is Ping An IFC, located in Futian District and expected to be completed in 2016, and the rest are either in Luohu, Futian and Nanshan districts, said Xu Bin, a vice director with the U.S. real estate services firm’s Shenzhen branch. Ping An IFC will be 660 meters tall and replace KK 100 to become the tallest building in Shenzhen.

Only buildings taller than 400 meters are regarded as super-tall structures by Jones Lang LaSalle, and in that term, KK 100, which is completed in 2011 and located in Futian District, is the only one in Shenzhen that qualifies.

Shenzhen’s construction of tallest skyscrapers is moving westwards with the economic rise of Futian and Nanshan District, Xu said. The 383-meter-tall Diwang Mansion, which was completed in 1997, was the landmark building of Shenzhen, until it was replaced by the 441-meter-tall KK 100.

The average rent for KK 100 is 240 yuan (US$39.35) per square meter per month, and that for Diwang Mansion is 160 yuan per square meter per month, according to Xu.

In addition to Ping An IFC, 14 other super-tall buildings are being built all over China and 11 of them are located in second-tier cities, including Tianjin, Wuhan and Nanjing.

Very impressive. A sort of Pop version of Zaha Hadid.
I do wonder what it will look like in the flesh, though. It looks a little implausibly glossy in the renders.

What are the other 4 buildings over 400m besides Ping An and KK100? Caiwuwai and what else?
