Work on Ganzhou-SZ rail line kicks off
Dec. 23, 2016
Shenzhen Daily

WORK on the Guangdong section of a high-speed rail that will link Ganzhou in Jiangxi Province and Shenzhen was officially initiated in Heyuan City on Thursday.

The 436-km high-speed rail line, with an estimated investment of 62 billion yuan (US$8.93 billion), will cut the trip from Shenzhen to Heyuan to 40 minutes when it is put into operation in 2020. The whole line will have 14 stations and the trip to Ganzhou will be cut to two hours.

The railway runs through about 300 kilometers of Guangdong, passing Heyuan, Huizhou and Dongguan and ending in Shenzhen. It will have a maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

The Guangdong section will cost about 45.8 billion yuan, which will be jointly funded by the Guangdong Provincial Government and China Railway Corp.

The Guangdong Party chief, Hu Chunhua, said at the launch ceremony that the rail line will enhance ties between cities around the Pearl River Delta and northeastern Guangdong cities.

Work on the Shenzhen section of the railway was simultaneously initiated in Guangming New Area on Thursday.

The civil engineering work will start in May next year.

“This rail line is very important for Guangming New Area, where construction of urban complexes and industrial parks are under way,” said Wang Yan, deputy director with Guangming Urban Development Promotion Center.

The rail line will form part of a longer proposed high-speed rail link to Nanchang, Jiangxi and will be connected with the Xiamen-Shenzhen Railway to allow access to coastal Fujian cities.

The Ganzhou-Shenzhen high-speed rail line is the southern part of the Beijing-Kowloon high-speed railway.

Demand for top-grade offices at record high
Jan. 26, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt



AS Shenzhen further cemented its position as a financial center in South China last year, demand for top-grade offices in the city grew accordingly, with new supply and sales of such offices reaching new records.

More than 1.3 million square meters of grade-A offices were put onto the Shenzhen market last year, with nearly 80 percent located in the city center of Futian District, a latest report by Jones Lang Lasalle’s Shenzhen office showed. The latest annual report from the Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat also said Shenzhen, with 11 skyscrapers added to its skyline last year, completed more skyscrapers in 2016 than the United States and Australia combined.

Financial companies are the main tenants of such high-end offices in Shenzhen, Jones Lang Lasalle found. A record of nearly 1 million square meters of grade-A offices were either rented out or used by their developers, the world’s largest private commercial real estate services company said.

Despite that, the vacancy rate rose by nearly 3 percentage points to 12 percent due to ample supply, it said. Average rent dropped by nearly 3 percent to 260 yuan (US$37.68) per square meter per month as an adequate supply gave tenants more reasons to bargain.

“Demand [for such offices] was sluggish in the first half of 2016,” said Xia Chunyi, director of Jones Lang Lasalle’s Shenzhen office. “Thanks to the sustained growth of traditional financial companies and stable development of the Shenzhen economy, demand returned in the second half of the year.”

Jones Lang Lasalle also found that Shenzhen’s high-end offices are attracting investors nationwide as buyers from other parts of the country made big purchases in Shenzhen last year, which boosted prices of such offices by roughly 4 percent.

Work on main structure of river corridor to start
Feb. 17, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

WORK on the main structure of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor, including the tunnel and the bridge, will start in November, according to a meeting on promoting the construction of the Guangdong expressway Wednesday.

The auxiliary road projects of the corridor’s Shenzhen section will start in May.

A key project in Guangdong Province, the 24-km corridor includes a 7.1-km tunnel in the east, a 16.9-km bridge in the west, and an artificial island in the middle of the Pearl River connecting the two sections.

The corridor starts at the Airport Overpass, which is 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 the Zhongshan Eastern Outer-ring Expressway.

The new eight-lane road will have a speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour.

Shenzhen started work on the Sanwei Overpass, part of the Airport Overpass in December 2015. The road linking the Sanwei Overpass and the Hezhou Overpass began at the end of 2016 and will be finished in 2019.

Construction of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in December 2015 after years of changes in its construction plan.

It’s hoped that the 42.4-billion-yuan (US$6.18 billion) project, which will link the two economic circles in the Pearl River Delta region, will improve the area’s economy.

Land project for runway expansion
March 15, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

A RUNWAY expansion project for the Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport will reclaim over 2.92 million square meters of land from the sea, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

Tagen Group, CCCC-FHDI Engineering Co. Ltd. and China Communications Construction Co. Ltd. jointly won the bidding for the project and secured the 4.3-billion-yuan (US$621.46 million) contract Friday.

The project will reclaim 2.92 million square meters of land from the sea to build a soft ground of 2.8 million square meters, equaling the size of 400 international standard football fields. The project includes the construction of the airport’s third runway and supporting facilities, with a construction period of 660 days.

According to the report, the launch of the project marks the beginning of the airport’s runway expansion plan. The airport’s transport capacity will be strengthened after the third runway is put into use, which will be essential in creating a “four-hour airline circle” along the Maritime Silk Road for passengers from Shenzhen.

The airport now has two runways. The first runway is 3,400 meters long and 45 meters wide and the second runway, which is 3,800 meters long and 60 meters wide, was put into operation in 2011.

45% of new homes below Ą50,000 per sqm
May 9, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

FOLLOWING the city government’s policies to tame the property market, nearly 45 percent of housing projects in Shenzhen have an average new-home price of less than 50,000 yuan (US$7,243) per square meter, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported yesterday.

According to statistics from Midland Realty, anjuke.com and ganji.com, some new homes in Pingshan District are priced at around 20,000 yuan per sqm.

A listed company on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange lowered the average price of a project’s apartments in Shajing from the registered 39,000 yuan per sqm to 36,000 yuan per sqm when the project goes for sale.

Several real estate projects have improved sales by lowering their prices, but the supply of new apartments is still insufficient.

Metro line to extend to Xiaomeisha
June 13, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

PHASE I of Metro Line 8, the first Metro line to serve Yantian District, will be extended to Xiaomeisha, providing convenience for holidaymakers, according to a reply from the Shenzhen rail construction office to lawmakers.

The plan has been handed to the city government for approval and work will start before the end of the year, the reply said.

The Phase I project starts from Liantang Station and ends at Yantian Road Station. It will be connected with the eastward extension of Line 2 between Xinxiu Station and Liantang Station. The Phase II project of Line 8 starts from Yantian Road and ends at Kuichong Culture Square via Xiaomeisha Station. It has been included in the city’s Phase IV rail construction network and will be completed before the end of 2020.

According to the current plan, riders will need to transfer at Yantian Road Station. Lawmakers in Yantian said it may cause a chaotic situation at the interchange station, especially during weekends or holidays, due to the difference in operational capacity.

Phase I adopts traditional rail that can handle 50,000 to 60,000 riders per hour, while Phase II adopts monorail, which can handle 30,000 riders an hour.

“During holidays or on weekends, a lot of people go to Dameisha, Xiaomeisha and the Dapeng area, and under the present plan, many riders will need to transfer at Yantian Road Station. This would lead to crowding at the station,” said Wu Bin, a lawmaker who works in Yantian.

Western section of SZ Bay Park opens to the public
July 4, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt



THE new western section of Shenzhen Bay Park opened to the public yesterday after months of anticipation among local residents, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

The western section of the seaside park extends 6.6 kilometers from Shenzhen Bay Sports Park — part of Shenzhen Bay Park — to the Sea World in Shekou. Ten scenic points, such as a specially designed bridge, botanical gardens and steel lighthouses, fuse Shekou’s industrial facade into their appearance.

The park was designed to surround visitors with unique historical, cultural and ecological features in different sectors, while simultaneously fusing the coastal scenery and the natural ecological landscape into an organic presentation for the public. Inside the park, pedestrian sidewalks and cycling lanes are separated to showcase the city’s first-grade international characteristics.

After the western section is open, residents are not expected to take long to flock to the park.

The western section of the park opened about three months ahead of schedule.

The seaside park stretches 15.6 kilometers from Futian to Shekou, Nanshan.

Qianhai-Shekou new plan charted
July 17, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

THE Qianhai and Shekou Area of the China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone will be the city’s new center and demonstration zone for deeper cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, and a point of strategic support for the Belt and Road Initiative, according to a comprehensive draft plan for the Qianhai-Shekou area’s development that was released by Shenzhen’s urban planning, land and resources commission last week.

The new plan adds an area of 9.7 square kilometers adjacent to the Qianhai-Shekou area, including the Mt. Dananshan and Mt. Xiaonanshan area, southern Shekou and part of Chiwan for consideration to ensure the integrity, structure and consistency of the plan.

The total 37.9 square kilometers of planned area is divided into sections, namely the Qianhai area, the Mt. Dananshan and Mt. Xiaonanshan area, the Shekou area and the southern Shekou and Chiwan area.

The comprehensive plan includes two parts: the main structure and overall planning. The main structure refers to “One Port, Two Belts and Seven Blocks.”

“One Port” refers to Shekou Port, which will be developed into an international ocean transport hub, while “Two Belts” refers to the coastal ecological culture belt and the urban comprehensive service belt. “Seven Blocks” includes Guiwan, Qianwan, Mawan, Cruise Home Port, Shekou, Chiwan, and the Mt. Dananshan and Mt. Xiaonanshan area.

The total floor area will be 47.25 million square meters, and around 25 to 26 million square meters will be used for industrial purposes. The floor space for residential use will reach 15 to 16 million square meters. Around 880,000 people will be employed in the area, and the number of residents will reach about 600,000.

Strategic and emerging industries, as well as high-end service industries, such as financial, commercial, information and technology services, international trade and modern logistics, and cultural and creative industries, will be given priority.

Chang Fu Jin Mao will get some supertall neighbors.

The blue square is Chang Fu Jin Mao, the red square is a new project called Tempus Headquater which looks like that:

And the green square is the location of this new mysterious project:

Incredible finds! And great news indeed, Chang Fu Jin Mao always seemed very lonely to me, and was in dire need of being part of a new cluster. A few notes about Tempus (the building on the red plot), according to Crunch base :

Shenzhen Tempus Global Business Service Holdings Ltd. (腾邦国际) is a personalized travel solutions provider in China. It provides business service solutions, including air ticket and hotel, MICE tourism, business trip management, and financial service for clients through its global service network.

It is also a FAIRLY new company, having just closed an impressive 30 million dollar series B round of funding 8 years ago. Great place for them to situate their HQ if you ask me . Their HQ will be clearly visible from the 3 most popular sites in Shenzhen for tourists to take photos:
1: Observation site of Lianhuashan Park right in front of Futian that has the Civic Center and Exhibition centre perfectly aligned with one another with Pin An (+ cluster) on the right and Gemdale Ganxia on the left
2. Danan Mount in Houhai
3. Wutong Mountain in the east which overlooks the entire city.

BY THE WAY: Would you happen to have a link for the building on the GREEN site?

There is a thread about this building on gaoloumi, but I couldn't find out where they got there information and this render from. The thread doesn't obtain more information then the name, the location and a few renderings of the project, which seem to be screenshots from a video.
http://www.gaoloumi.com/forum.php?mo...extra=page%3D3
Maybe you have more luck finding information about this project.

There seems to be some "conflict" between the proposals. If the renders for the three tower project are correct then it should be west of the green square and between the blue and red ones. That means the Tempus tower will separated from the tallest of the three tower project by only a couple meters of space.

Of course, I'm sure they will rejig the building placement of both projects. Hopefully everything goes well and we will see four ~300m buildings all clustered together. Unless Chinese overplanning rears it's ugly head in and mandates that there should be only be two buildings in the area and everything shall be useless green space. I think the explosion of proposals in the area are tied to anticipation of the under construction Fubao Station of the Line 3 south extension project.
