New port to handle huge cruise ships
March 2, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

A PORT for cruise ships in Taizi Bay in Shekou, Nanshan District, will be put into service in November this year. It will be the only cruise port in China capable of accommodating 220,000-ton cruise liners, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported yesterday.

According to the China Merchants Shekou Holdings Co., the Taizi Bay Cruise Center is expected to start operation in November this year, when the first cruise liner will dock in the port. The port will be able to handle the world’s largest cruise ships.

The port, covering an area of 42,614 square meters, has a 12-story complex with 136,650 square meters of floor space. The cruise center, as the main building in the port area, was designed by architect Denis Laming.

The design is meant to blend in with the environment, according to the Daily report.

Apart from being a port for cruise liners, the cruise center will also have office areas, viewing platforms and traffic links, connecting waterway transport with the urban transport system in Shenzhen.

I understand the irony, but this it shouldn't be about preserving 'history'. Outside of Hubei old village and a couple spots in Dapeng and Shajing, there's obviously very little history worth preserving in Shenzhen. NIMBYism is a problem in America, I get it. Shenzhen has a different problem.

There's nothing wrong with re-development, what is a shame is that developers feel the need to wipe out entire swaths of the city in order to achieve the aesthetic ideal of their project. Knock down a few nongminfang and build a tower? No problem. The neighborhood would likely be better for it. That's how cities like Hong Kong developed.

You get these proposals like the Huanggang redevelopment however, where the entire neighborhood is leveled not just to build a few highrises, but to replace the neighborhood with a massive open plaza. Does anyone actually 'use' massive open plazas in sub-tropical South China? Of course not. See: Civic Center.

It'd be one thing if it was just one or two villages in especially prime locations getting re-developed. Knock out Gangxia or Caiwuwei? Makes economic sense, I suppose. But what you're seeing is basically every urban village getting gutted. Huanggang, Hubei, Baishizhou, Shangsha, Xiasha, Caiwuwei, Shawei, Shazui... the list goes on.

Once you knock all those out, what do you get? A city of solely glassy buildings, concrete apartments, parking lot sidewalks, faux-upscale-malls. The demolition of the villages isn't necessarily just about the demolition per se; it's about the banality of what replaces them. While a handful of new projects have managed to make at least decently interesting spaces (OCT Bay, Seaworld Redevelopment, OCT Loft), the vast majority of them lack and kind of vision to make the place compelling. An ode to the unrelenting modernism of the 60s, I suppose.

Just go to two places and walk around. Get a feeling for the place. Go to the Shuiwei neighborhood, and go to the Xiangmihu neighborhood. See for yourself which urban form, well, feels more urban.

There's an economic reality to many of these redevelopment projects, I get it. The housing price is so out of whack that one could theoretically make a fortune. But there'd be an even easier way to monetize them - allow the nongminfang to be subdivided and bought and sold on the open market. Immediately, there'd be a huge influx of buyers, the housing stock would skyrocket, and make it so that a middle-class Shenzhener doesn't need to go to Guangming to find something decently priced to purchase. That swath of completely private investment would lead to the buildings themselves getting renovated, elevators installed, etc.

But they don't do that, even though it would be healthy economically, because it's not the aesthetic ideal they're looking for.

Danish company wins bridge design contest
From Shenzhen Daily

A DESIGN by a Danish company won first prize at the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor Design International Contest that ended recently, the project management center said Tuesday.

Experts specializing in tunnel, bridge, hydraulic structure and aesthetics reviewed designs from five companies at a meeting late last month.

COWI Co. from Denmark won the first prize for its design concept.

“The overall corridor design includes a tunnel in the east, a bridge in the west, and the two sections connected by an artificial island in the middle of the Pearl River. The whole design is harmonious, concise, majestic, elegant and distinctive, reflecting a combination of mechanics and aesthetics, with a sense of rhythm,” the management center said in a release.

The center will use the design as the framework for the construction of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor. Construction will start this year, cutting the trip between Shenzhen and Zhongshan to 30 minutes from the present two hours when it is completed in 2020. Currently, Shenzhen drivers need to pass over the often-congested Humen Bridge to get to Zhongshan, which is on the west bank of the Pearl River.

The Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor is a key provincial project this year. The 24-km corridor, including the 7.1-km tunnel in the east and the 16.9-km bridge in the west, starts at Airport Overpass, an interchange overpass on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Riverside Expressway, touches land on Ma’an Island in Zhongshan and ends at the Hengmen Overpass, an interchange overpass on the Zhongshan-Kaiping Expressway and Zhongshan Eastern Outer-Ring Expressway.

The new eight-lane road will have a speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour. Total investment is estimated at 42.5 billion yuan. Projects on the Shenzhen side of the corridor started at the end of 2015. (Han Ximin)

Cities lead China toward green future
2 May 2016
China Daily


Source : http://shl.dk/

China's environmental crisis and its dependency on coal for generating energy have been the favorite topic of discussions. But do we know China is by far the biggest producer of wind energy? Or, is it known China has also become the top solar energy producer?

The fact is that China has truly shifted its economic planning toward a green future.

President Xi Jinping's speech at the Paris climate change conference in December last year showed China had become the strong partner of the international community for ecological transformation. Xi's active diplomacy in the run-up to the climate conference, including his direct discussion on climate policy with US President Barack Obama, prepared the ground for the Paris Climate Agreement, which was signed by world leaders at the UN Headquarters in New York on Friday.

But the Paris success is not the end but only the beginning of the transformation process. To achieve a low-carbon economy, we need concrete, sometimes painful actions. The Paris objective to limit temperature rise to 2 Celsius demands a policy change toward green economy in developed and developing countries. China, given its understanding of the needs of developing countries and South-South cooperation, can play a very important role as a bridge between the developed and the developing world.

More importantly, China can show how the development of the most populous country can be achieved in a more sustainable manner, and that ecological civilization is the model for the future.

Based on current planning, China will achieve its carbon emission peak in 2030. But efforts must be made to advance this deadline. Additional measures should be taken in areas such as energy-saving, improving energy efficiency, development of non-fossil fuels, limiting the use of coal and developing clean coal technologies, and large-scale afforestation.

Good political intentions, even good environmental laws, are not enough, if people, businesses and local authorities do not translate them into action. Implementing green economy rules and taking concrete actions are the key to success.

I attended a conference on green development recently at the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, where the follow-up to the Paris Climate Agreement was discussed and outstanding environmental projects supported by Chinese foundations presented.

Shenzhen is a great place to see how quickly China can move. Shenzhen started as a "factory of the world". After China launched its reform and opening-up, Shenzhen became the first special economic zone. Since the city produced goods to be exported around the world, pollution was the unavoidable price to pay.

But today, Shenzhen is a wealthy metropolis the size of Paris, and its economy is no more dominated by manufacturing. Instead information and communication technology companies, service providers, innovative entrepreneurs, universities and research institutes have become the drivers of its economic growth. The city has replaced 15,000 petrol-engine taxis with China-made electric vehicles and it will use waste to produce energy.

In 2020, one of the largest waste-treatment facilities in the world will become operational. The facility, designed by Danish architects, will use the most sophisticated equipment in waste incineration to burn about one-third of the waste generated in the city each year. In addition, efforts are being made to develop a circular economy to reduce waste and save energy.

Innovation-centric companies have developed smart sensors to ensure energy is consumed only when needed. And in the Nanshan district of Shenzhen, an urban pilot project has started to build a low-carbon community for 300,000 residents, which could become a model for the rest of the world.

But Shenzhen occupies only the fourth place in the China Urban Sustainable Development Report prepared by the UN Development Programme. Beijing and Shanghai rank higher because of their more efficient use of resources. This is to say, despite the path to ecological civilization being long, China is truly entrenched on it.

50 square kilometers of land to be reclaimed
June 17, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

SHENZHEN needs more land. That’s what a recently issued five-year plan on infrastructure development says.

Shenzhen will reclaim another 50 square kilometers from the sea from 2016 to 2025, according to the blueprint for the city’s infrastructure development.

Land reclamation projects will be carried out in Yantian, Bao’an and Dapeng New Area with an investment of 27.3 billion yuan (US$41.5 billion).

Shenzhen had reclaimed at least 69 square kilometers of land since the establishment of the city up to 2013.

The land reclaimed in Shenzhen is equivalent to over six Shekou Peninsulas.

The land reclaimed from the sea has become commercial areas and luxury residential compounds, with housing prices ranging between 100,000 yuan and 150,000 yuan per square meter, overtaking prices in Luohu and Futian districts.

Apart from the proposal for land reclamation, the five-year plan also lays out other programs to enhance the city’s infrastructure with a total investment of 1.4 trillion yuan into 362 projects, including environmental protection and expansion projects.

Sewage plants to help improve water quality
June 22, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

Photo by johnhello from dcfever :



SHENZHEN will build two sewage plants and expand five existing ones before the end of next year to improve water quality in Shenzhen Bay, according to a Shenzhen Evening News report, quoting the local water resources bureau.

Statistics from the Shenzhen Municipal Water Resources Bureau showed that the drainage basin of Shenzhen Bay produced around 1.6 million tons of wastewater a day in 2015. Around 127,900 tons of wastewater were being discharged into Shenzhen Bay every day.

The city will complete treatment of the Buji River and Shawan River in two to three years and wastewater treatment capability in the Shenzhen Bay drainage basin will reach 2.31 million tons a day.

“So far we have completed renovations on 14 sewage outfalls and collected about 110,000 tons of sewage water each day. There are still four sewage outfalls that remain to be handled,” the water resources bureau said in a letter responding to lawmakers’ request to improve the water quality of Shenzhen Bay at the legislature’s annual session earlier this year.

The water quality in Shenzhen Bay can expect to be improved after four treatment lines of Futian Sewage Plant, which can handle 400,000 tons of wastewater, and another plant on Gongye No. 8 Road in Shekou, are put into use at the end of this month.

But I have no idea about the 300m project and about the 320m, 280m, 250m and 200m project in this list above. If someone knows more or is able to read the gaoloumi threads and find some pictures of these projects, that would be great. Also some pictures of the building sites would be great to see if they really are moving forward.

Shenzhen Property Triples, Leaving New York, Tokyo in Dust

In China’s booming property market, some of the loftiest gains are found in the southern city of Shenzhen.
Over the past five years, prices have tripled in the business hub that borders Hong Kong,
even as officials have tried to deter speculation.

Opera house planned in SZ
November 16, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

SHENZHEN has decided to invest 1.4 billion yuan (US$204 million) on building a book distribution base and four book cities in Longhua, Pingshan, Dapeng and Guangming, a city official told political advisers at a meeting Monday.

In addition, Shenzhen Opera House will be built, although the choice for its location is still being made, Li Xiaogan, the city’s publicity chief, said at the meeting.

Nanshan, Futian and Bao’an districts have recommended parcels of land for the construction of Shenzhen Opera House.

Construction of the opera house, a key cultural facility for the city, needs thorough and comprehensive consideration because it will be a landmark facility integrating creation, performance and international exchange, officials and political advisers said.

A report released at the meeting showed that the city had invested an accumulative 1.66 billion yuan over five years in cultural facilities. The investment falls short of the city’s economic growth.

Ports look to cruise ship fillip
China Daily Excerpt

Southern China's ports are striving to develop a cruise industry, as a new driver to expand their economies, but experts say it is paramount for them to explore a new business model in their hunt to make profits.

Prince Bay Cruise Homeport in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, officially started operations on Nov 12, marking a milestone in the takeoff of the city's cruise industry.

The first cruise liner dropping anchor was the SuperStar Virgo owned by Genting Hong Kong - the leading global leisure, entertainment and hospitality company - and it left on Sunday for a six-day trip with 1,445 passengers to Vietnam.

The six-star Silver Shadow cruise liner is also expected to set sail from the homeport in January next year.

The homeport is wholly-owned by Shenzhen-based and listed China Merchants Shekou Industrial Zone Holdings Ltd (CMSK), a subsidiary of the State-owned conglomerate China Merchants Group (CMG).

The whole harbor district covers an area of 697,640 square meters, with a total building area of 1700,000 square meters. The biggest berth among its total 15 can allow the world's biggest, 220,000-metric-tons grand cruiseliners, to call.

CMSK said it was currently at the first stage of construction and more berths would be established soon after getting approval from the government.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong and Guangzhou received one of the largest cruise ships in Asia - the maiden cruise of Dream Cruises, also operated by Genting Hong Kong, on the same day.

Experts said they believe the burgeoning cruise industry in China could bring a new market to revive the sluggish port economies, but say the key is to find a sustainable development model.

China's port industry is developing at a very slow speed, said Chen Yingming, vice director of the China Ports & Harbors Association.

He said China's port throughput had increased only 2.2 percent in the first nine months of 2016 compared with the same period of last year - the lowest growth rate in the sector's history.

But the cruise industry by contrast is growing in double digits. China's 10 cruise ports received 629 cruises and 2.48 million people sailed on cruises in 2015, up by 35 and 44 percent respectively over the previous year, according to China National Tourism Administration data.

New airport infrastructure work starts
Dec. 1, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt


Impressive #Shenzhen #airport #airportlife by jeffreyoon, on Flickr

SHENZHEN International Airport has initiated a new round of infrastructure work to expand its capacity to meet the increasing demand of both cargo and passenger planes.

The infrastructure work, which includes a third runway, a satellite waiting hall and Terminal 4, has been listed in the city’s 13th Five-Year Plan, and the land-reclamation project for the construction of the third runway and Terminal 4 has started, Shenzhen Airport Group Corp. said in a news release Tuesday, marking the third anniversary of the use of Terminal 3.

The 3.6-kilometer-long and 60-meter-wide runway will be built on land reclaimed from the sea, and is scheduled to be completed in 2018. Shenzhen will also start construction of the Automated People Moving System, which will link Terminal 3 to the future Terminal 4. Work on the underground system for Terminal 3 and Terminal 4 will also start in 2018 and be completed in 2020, according to the airport’s plan.

Since Terminal 3 opened for use in 2013, the number of passengers it serves has been steadily increasing and is expected to reach 40 million by the end of this year.
