Shenzhen's Planners, Aviation Official in Dogfight over Building Heights
Southern city has grand development plans for its Qianhai zone, but airport authorities say too many tall buildings will imperil flights



Quote:
(Beijing) – An ambitious plan to turn part of Shenzhen's Qianhai special economic zone into the Pearl River Delta's version of skyscraper-packed Manhattan is being overshadowed by a battle between urban planners and aviation authorities over building heights.
A plan for the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone that was passed by Shenzhen's government in April 2012 says the area will be stuffed with skyscrapers up to 450 meters tall. In Guiwan, in the northern part of the zone, about half of the planned buildings will be 250 to 350 meters tall.
Quote:
The Shenzhen Airport Group authorities later told the Qianhai bureau that buildings within the economic zone should not exceed 153.72 meters. It did not say how it came up with this height.
An aviation industry analyst who asked that his name not be used said the Qianhai zone could have a serious impact on the airport if the original plans are used because it "will be filled with clusters of high-rises."
But an official with Qianhai bureau said that if the 153.72-meter cap is followed, it will significantly compromise the zone's development, the city's hopes to build a new landmark and land sales.
Quote:
In 2013, Qianhai officials commissioned an aviation research institute to conduct a study that found that the zone indeed lies within the protected area around the airport, but the researchers also said buildings up to 350 meters tall would pose no threat to flights.
The CAAC told the Qianhai bureau to review the study, and the height limit was revised to between 294 and 350 meters.
They mention Ping An too
Quote:
n 2007, developers planned to make the Pingan International Financial Center in Shenzhen reach 660 meters into the sky, but were later forced to scale down by 60 meters because a flight departure path is nearby.

Beijing has a large financial district of mid-rises, so Qianhai can follow that model and succeed.

To my understanding final decision hasn't been made yet. Let's hope for at least 350 meters.

it could work, but it is nothing that we would want. With recent talks I hope we at least get a limit about 300m and then several towers reaching that limit, making that limit look like a plateau, singapore style, but bigger

a landmark tower would still be much better though

I know many are ready to debate this point. Yet it is an almost definite fact that the easiest way you can get your city noticed and recognized is by flashing a picture your skyline.

That is how many even on this forum now appreciate so many Chinese cities .

What I dont understand is how Shanghai tower got approved,it is closer to Shanghai Hongqiao airport than for example Ping an is to this airport,infact the entirety of Shenwan station development is further away from the airport than Shanghai tower is from Hongqiao airport. This airport control group seems very overzealous in their height control and they seem to wait until projects already are underway until they complain about the height we have already seen this with China resources center that originally was approved at 525 meter then revised downwards to 400m.

^ Flight paths may not necessarily correlate to distance from the airport.

New tunnel to deal with SZ Bay pollution
2015-June-12
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

A TUNNEL to remove sewage from Shenzhen Bay might start operation by the end of this year, according to a recent statement by a water resources official.

Yang Geng, vice head of the city’s water resources bureau, spoke about the Shenzhen Bay on a recent call-in radio program.

There are currently 27 pipes that empty into Shenzhen Bay, and 50,000 cubic meters of wastewater is discharged into the ocean every day, Yang said.

To tackle the pollution in the bay area, the city is constructing a tunnel that links Shenzhen Bay with the Nanshan sewage treatment plant.

Instead of emptying into the bay, the new tunnel will transport the sewage to the treatment plant.

Yang said that new methods would be adopted to collect sewage water near the most polluted part of Shenzhen Bay until the tunnel is finished.

Enterprises and individuals will also face regulations to alleviate water pollution in the city.

Water pollution in Shenzhen Bay has been a long-term issue that many residents and political advisers have voiced concern about.

Dapeng may get national ocean park, seaside resort
2015-July-16
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

THE economic service bureau in Dapeng New Area is considering a proposal to establish a national ocean park geared toward protecting the ocean’s ecological system, the bureau said.

At the same time, a plan is being put forward to build a seashore resort at Jiaochangwei, an already renowned seaside area, in Dapeng.

“The pitch for a national ocean park is mostly for ecological protection, restoration, science education and sea research,” said Zhang Min, a staff member at the ocean department of the economic service bureau. “The national park will be centered on the coral reefs in Dapeng, plus the adjacent land and sea area.”

If the proposal is approved, according to Zhang, the core area will not be open to the public to protect nature in the area. The rest of the park would allow public access and be designed to provide education about protecting the ocean.

The park would also have glass-bottomed boats to give visitors a view of the underwater life, said Duan Xiaowei, vice director of the economic service bureau, in an interview with a Shenzhen Economic Daily reporter.

The ocean park would use proven coral reef protection methods developed at the Xuwen Coral Reef Protection Area in Guangdong.

“We’ll borrow their technique of putting artificial reefs underwater, to compensate for the human damage to the natural coral reef,” said Zhang.

Shenzhen Bay Innovation Centre

Does anyone have word on the supposed reduction in height for the Shenzhen Bay Innovation centre? Apparently they had to scale back the height on two of the towers?

High-speed train to Maoming may start running in 2017
2015-August-18 08:53
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt



A HIGH-SPEED rail from Shenzhen to Maoming City in southwestern Guangdong Pro-vince may open in October 2017, more than six months ahead of the original scheduled opening of 2018.

According to a report in the Southern Metropolis Daily, which quoted officials with Maoming City, the project has gone smoothly since a section of track began being built between Jiangmen and Maoming in June last year.

The travel time between Shenzhen and Maoming will be cut to three hours from the present seven hours after the high-speed rail is completed.

The 387-km high-speed rail, at a total investment of 59.3 billion yuan (US$9.27 billion), is designed for a speed of 200 kilometers per hour. It runs from Shenzhen North Railway Station to Maoming East Railway Station via Guangzhou, Zhongshan and Jiangmen.

The project will finally bring a high-speed rail connection to western Guangdong.

It is estimated that the Jiangmen-Maoming section will be able to handle 10.53 million passengers a year by 2025 and 22 million a year by 2035.

Budget airlines to get terminal
October 16, 2015
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

SHENZHEN will start construction of a airport terminal for low-cost airlines this year to cater to the growing number of passengers riding on low-cost airlines, according to the second China Low-Cost Carrier Summit on Thursday, a sideline forum of the 10th China (Shenzhen) International Logistics and Transportation Expo, which ends Friday.

“The Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) doesn’t have VIP lounges, contact boarding gates, or high-end consumption facilities. It satisfies the minimum demands of ground service for passengers. It could further reduce expenses of low-cost airlines and benefit air passengers,” said Wu Xiaoming, director of the airport department of the Shenzhen transport commission.

Bay remains polluted despite efforts
2015-October-16
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt



EFFORTS to clean up Shenzhen Bay are off to a slow start because of engineering challenges, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported Thursday.

Government officials said the bay remains polluted because of poor urban planning.

During a meeting held Wednesday, the city’s lawmakers asked government officials about the status of Shenzhen Bay’s pollution.

Wang Lixin, the head of the city’s water resources bureau, said illegally built buildings and poor urban planning mean unfiltered sewage is dumped directly into the bay.

Wang said 16 out of 47 sewage pipes discharge untreated sewage into the bay. He said that a sewage disposal plant in Futian District is under construction and expected to be put into service in June next year.

Wang said the next step is to build a distribution system to separate rainwater from sewage, and the government pledges to stop sewage from flowing into Shenzhen Bay via rivers within three years.

Wang said the dense population and geography in the bay area are slowing pollution control projects. He added that the sewage control project on Gongye Road is taking a long time because the engineering methods being used mean the tunnel can only be extended 1 meter per day.

According to the bureau, the sewage systems in 2,780 residential estates are below standard and allow untreated sewage to flow into the bay with rainwater. Wang said these systems will be improved within a year, while the construction of new estates should be reviewed by the bureau to check that their sewage systems are up to par.

Train stations considered in Longgang
2015-November-10
Shenzhen Daily


Google Maps

THE Longgang District Government is working with railway operators to set up stations in the district as soon as possible, hoping the high-speed rail lines will bring more business opportunities to the district, which is economically weaker than other districts like Futian and Nanshan.

The Xiamen-Shenzhen high-speed rail operator will set up stations in Henggang and Lilang, while the Guangzhou-Shenzhen rail company will also set up stations in Lilang and Pinghu, sources from the district government said.

According to the district’s short-term plans, the Henggang and Lilang stations will link with the Shenzhen North Railway Station and eventually serve Metro Line 14 and the Shenzhen-Xiamen High-Speed Rail. It will start research on fast transit service on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen rail between Luohu and Pinghu by setting up Luohu, Lilang and Pinghu stations.

Shenzhen's 'big gold teeth' is still aching
24 November 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Two yet-to-be-completed prime commercial buildings located in one of Shenzhen's busiest districts remain mired in controversy - more than two decades after construction began.

The imposing golden glass-walled edifices on Shennan Avenue in the Luohu district - one of the city's busiest thoroughfares - saw construction work getting off the ground several months ago after having been "under construction" for more than 20 years, But, recently, the new owners were ordered to "hold your horses" again.

The buildings were once regarded as the symbol of Luohu's golden age and nicknamed "big gold teeth" for their impressive golden facades.

A Shenzhen developer had started construction work on the two structures as early as 1993, but work was subsequently suspended due to insufficient funds, multiple resales and debt disputes.

In May this year, Shenzhen-based Vanke - one of the mainland's biggest developers - took over the buildings in what was described as one of the most expensive commercial real-estate deals in Shenzhen's history, as part of the company's investments in transforming old projects. Sources estimated the purchase price at more than 3 billion yuan ($469.5 million).

Wang Fei, manager of the Centaline Property Research Center, told China Daily that as land resources in the Luohu district are extremely limited, developers have to resort to transforming old buildings to feed new projects.

Other prominent builders like Shenzhen Kingkey Real Estate Co Ltd, Evergrande Group and Shum Yip Group Ltd have also invested in the transformation of old buildings to kick off new projects in Luohu, lured by the high appreciation potential of both residential and commercial properties in the district.
