Can't find the KK100 thread, it's finished and I assume no one reads it again, anyways.

Having a meeting with Sir Terry Farrell, the architect of the current tallest building of Shenzhen, KK100, in a few hours, on a separate agenda. Wonder should I mention his contributions to Shenzhen like KK100, Sheraton Dameisha lol

It's probably most appropriate to post in Kingkey thread, but I can not find it anymore.

Can back visiting Terry Farrell, he is clearly very proud of KK100, a model of it in prominent place in the office, with pictures of KK100 here and there, noting its the highest building ever designed by a British architect.

He gave me a signed book of their major projects in the end


KK100


Kingkey's other great project, Sheraton Dameisha in Shenzhen's east coast


Beijing South


Z15 in Beijing (the book is several years old)

New rapid bus corridor planned
2014-September-12
Shenzhen Daily

A RAPID bus corridor with left-side bus lanes linking Minzhi Boulevard and Caitian Road will be constructed, cutting commuting time between Minzhi and Futian’s CBD area to 30 minutes.

According to the plan released by Shenzhen’s transportation commission Thursday, 38 pairs of bus stops will be built on the left side of the roads, and bus passengers will be able to transfer to six Metro lines in the future, including the Luobao, Shekou, Longgang and Huanzhong lines and future lines 7 and 9.

Road renovation work will start early next year and the first rapid bus corridor will be completed in the second half of next year.

Xincai Passage was the first road in the city to have bus lanes on its left side. The commission will extend the bus lanes at both ends, to Futian Checkpoint in the south via Caitian Road and Qinghu Metro Station in the north via Xinqu Boulevard and Minzhi Boulevard. The 19-km corridor will link business and residential clusters in Futian’s CBD area, Longhua, Bantian and Guanlan.

The bus lane can only be used by buses and vehicles with more than 10 seats. The bus routes going through Meilin Checkpoint will be increased from the present 68 to 100.

The bus lane will connect with the city’s Metro, tram, and bicycle systems.

Xincai Passage, which opened a month ago, has effectively relieved congestion at Meilin Checkpoint.

Statistics from the transportation commission show that vehicle flow reached 2,500 vehicles per hour during rush hour in September while vehicles on Meiguan Road stably kept at 5,500 per hour.

Congestion during rush hour at Meilin Checkpoint has been reduced from 120 minutes to 60 minutes.

The time it takes for buses to go through Meilin Checkpoint via Xincai Passage has been shortened by 14 minutes. The time for buses going through Meilin Checkpoint via Meiguan Road-Huanggang Road has been shortened by 12 minutes.

New (possibly supertall) projects near How Kwok City Center:
There are three possible designs which are between 250m and 350m tall:
Option A:

Option B:

Option 3 (IMO the best looking, but likely the lowest one):

Sino-Finnish Design Park opens in city
2014-December-1
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt


Source : Shenzhen Industrial Design Profession Association

MORE than 100 officials and well-known design professionals attended the opening ceremony of the Sino-Finnish Design Park in Futian District on Friday.

Located in the Funian Square of Futian Bonded Zone, the park consists of a six-story building with different service providers, including a public service platform, an innovative-projects incubator for young designers, an international design talent training and certification center and the headquarters for several design companies.

The park is part of cooperation efforts between Shenzhen and Finland’s capital, Helsinki, after Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin signed a joint memorandum of understanding with Helsinki Mayor Jussi Pajunen last year.

“Shenzhen is a very important and highly appreciated partner for Helsinki. The city is a dynamic window into contemporary China and one of the most active cities in China to interact with the world,” Pajunen said. “I hope the Sino-Finnish Design Park will help Chinese and Finnish companies meet and get to know each other, and eventually to find ways to do business together.”

One of the highlights of the park is Studio Kukkapura on the first floor. Named after Finland’s internationally known designer Yrjo Kukkapuro, the exhibition features some classic works by Kukkapura from the past half-century, which are regarded as the essence of Finnish design.

On the same floor is the Sino-Finnish Design Park Exhibition Center, which, using multimedia platforms, showcases an array of design products from well-known local and foreign design companies including Shenzhen LKK Design Co., Shenzhen-based CBON Design and Consulting Co. and Giovannoni Design, a studio of Italy’s design master Stefano Giovannoni.

More than 80 percent of the space in the design park has been occupied by design companies from home like LKK, CBON, Rito Group, CSH Design Co., ED Design, and abroad, such as Avarte Furniture Co. from Finland and Giovannoni Design and Studio O from Italy.

A piece of Shuiwei village (the portion around SCIE/Crafthead if you're familiar) is getting renovated - food stalls, youth hostel, and a small bar street are planned. Nice and refreshing to see some actual forward-thinking planning when it comes to villages in Shenzhen.

That's great news ! I love Shenzhen, I love its development but one of my fear is that small urban villages will all be demolished to let place to big projects. I'm happy to see some renovation of small urban villages ! This probably means that they won't be demolished in a near future ! ShuiWei village is a great place to visit ! They had already renovated a great deal of building surfaces in the past 2 years.

Sure thing:

Didn't take any photos of the other renders, as they seemed pretty boilerplate.

It's interesting to note how urban villages are developing in Futian. A couple years ago, the Futian government requested each of the villages to issue a long term vision for redevelopment. Sometimes these plans consisted of complete redevelopment of select portions (e.g. Shazui) of their villages, others did not. For more information, check out the 'ten points of consensus' from the "双升双富" plan and the 15 + 1 redevelopment plan from 2010.

Having a solid plan for redevelopment makes sense after all the rumored nonsense that went on with the Gangxia project.

People take centre stage in Qianhai development plan
11 February 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt






Source : http://www.szqh.com.cn

Architect seeks to combine style and efficiency with a marine theme in One Excellence project

Imagine a long stretch of land with tall buildings lined along two sides. Two towers connected through a canopy front the two rows of buildings, acting as a gateway to the stretch that ends in a promenade. Welcome to One Excellence in Qianhai’s central business centre, now under construction.

It was before Qianhai was making headlines that TFP Farrells, which is designing a part of the centre, had spotted the then-untouched plot at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta. The international architecture studio is now shaping the prime area in the experimental zone for the mainland’s financial reforms.

According to TFP Farrells’ director Stefan Krummeck, the special economic zone, which stretches over 15 square kilometres in Shenzhen’s west coast, is designed to have little resemblance to Hong Kong or cities on the mainland. In Qianhai, people will have priority over cars.

“Usually in China, you just have vast streets and huge pavements and you can’t even cross the street. That’s not human scale. I think Qianhai could become a model,” Krummeck said.

In his opinion, Qianhai “is interesting, because it’s dense, but it is divided into small lots and streets, so you still have that urban character”.

Qianhai’s density will be similar to Kowloon’s, but with a distinctive atmosphere. “Very often when we talk about towers, we end up sterilising the city or sterilising the groundscape. It can become a very harsh environment,” he said, citing Hong Kong. “Here it works because people are focused on their professional life and their main aspiration is efficiency.”

However, Krummeck noted, there was little doubt that the city’s architecture had suffered as a result and other aspects of life, such as style, expression and community, had been forgotten.

Qianhai, an hour’s drive from Hong Kong, is meant to offer a different living environment. “There’s a master plan, which is trying to do things a little bit differently … more conscious, more ordered and more functional, but still achieving similar densities,” Krummeck said.

According to the master plan, there are three main areas: Guiwan, or the central business centre; Qianwan, reserved for information-technology and cultural activities; and Mawan, a bounded port area. These areas are divided into smaller quarters.

Krummeck said the integration of the city’s development with transport was one of the most positive aspects of the plan. “What happens often is when a city grows, you build more and more buildings, and you attract more people, and only afterwards you think ‘how do these people get around?’”

Qianhai is quite the opposite. It has a subway even before the city has been developed. “The metro stations became catalysts for development rather than just serving the community.”

TFP Farrell’s designing team also aims to create a friendly pedestrian environment. “I think the city is there for the people and the people are in the streets. I don’t think it is right to push people up and down. That’s what happens in Hong Kong, where the priority is given to cars.”

In Qianhai, traffic will flow in the edges whereas the central area, between the towers, which goes all the way to the promenade, will be pedestrian. According to Krummeck, there will be playgrounds, trees, restaurants and open-air spaces on the ground level.

Work on some Metro extensions to start this year
2015-February-12
Shenzhen Daily



CONSTRUCTION on the extensions of seven Metro lines, which add up to an additional 87 kilometers more than the existing lengths, will start between 2015 and 2017, according to Shenzhen Rail Construction Office.

According to the plan for Shenzhen’s third phase of Metro construction, the Shekou Line will be extended eastward to Liantang, Luohu District, the Longhua Line will be extended northward to Guanlan, the Huanzhong Line and Metro Line 9, which is still under construction, will be extended to Qianhai. The Longgang Line will be extended southward to Futian Bonded Zone and northward to Pingdi, and Metro Line 6, which is under construction, will be extended to Shenzhen Science Museum.

The extension projects involve the construction of 47 Metro stations and 85.1-km of tracks, of which 62.6 km will be underground.

Construction of Metro Line 10, which will link Futian Checkpoint and Pinghu, started at the end of 2014. The 29.9-km line, with 25 stations, including eight interchange stations, will be a regional line that passes through Futian District, Longhua New Area and Longgang District.

When Metro Line 11, which will connect central Futian District and Songgang in Bao’an District, is put into operation in June next year, riders can directly go to Shenzhen airport without changing to a bus. The line connects the urban central area with the western regions as well, linking Futian, Nanshan and Bao’an districts.

Two other lines, Line 7 and Line 9, will be put into operation at the end of 2016.

Property owners in Qianhai eye higher real-estate prices
2015-February-11
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt



MANY homeowners in the Qianhai area withdrew their homes from the property market in hopes that the prices of their homes may skyrocket in the coming two years, as the area is included in Guangdong’s free trade zone program approved by the central authorities, Chinese-language media reported yesterday.

Qianhai and neighboring Shekou were announced as part of Guangdong’s free trade zone Dec. 26 last year, prompting home prices in the two areas to rise by up to 10 percent since then.

Prices of commercial property in Qianhai have also risen since Dec. 26, as an increasing number of companies have registered and relocated to Qianhai, hoping to enjoy the preferential policies that are set to be adopted in the area.

In the end of 2013, Qianhai was home to 3553 companies; in the month after the free-trade-zone announcement, about 4000 more companies registered in the area.

“Commercial property prices in the area are expected to reach 100,000 yuan (US$16,002) per square meter within a year,” Zhao Luming, a commercial estate analyst in Qianhai, told Shenzhen Evening News.

Zhao said he was very confident in Qianhai’s property market.
