Qingdao to Invest CNY2.5bn in Roads in 09

QINGDAO, March 13, SinoCast -- Qingdao, the largest harbor city in Shandong Province in north China, decides to spend CNY 2.5 billion in road construction in 2009, in order to speed up the land communications with its subways and neighbors.

The city will build a directly-connected highway to Laixi, a fast-growing city under the administration of Qingdao. It is a portion of the one-hour economic circle centered by Qingdao. Now, the main road between Qingdao and Laixi is a section of Qingdao-Yantai Highway and there is no direct road between the two cities.

Qingdao will also gear up the preparation works for the construction of Qingdao-Longkou Highway. Although the line has not been fixed by far, the highway will certainly go through Laixi. The local government is doubling effort to kick off the construction as soon as possible.

Notably, Qingdao-Longkou Highway, the National 204 Road, and Tongjiang-Sanya Road will jointly create a fast land transport corridor to connect Qingdao and Yantai.

A New Port to Be Built in Shandong

QINGDAO, March 26, SinoCast -- The overall layout about the Dongjiakou port for the Port of Qingdao, an important port in Shandong, east China, is approved jointly by the Ministry of Transport of China and Shandong Provincial Government.

With a land area of about 38 square kilometers, the new port is scheduled to have a coastline of about 20 kilometers and 112 berths. After the completion, it is forecast to reach a cargo throughput of more than 20 million tons by 2015 and have a final throughput of over 100 million tons.

Its service will be focused mainly on bulk cargo, liquid chemicals, and general cargo, according to the layout. It will gradually grown into a comprehensive port, with a developable hinterland area of more than 70 square kilometers.

In detail, it will be composed of five areas such as the large-sized open dock, the liquid bulk cargo dock, the general bulk cargo dock, the container dock, and the logistics park.

Shimao allots 1.8b yuan for Shandong project
21 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Shanghai Shimao Commercial Group plans to spend 1.8 billion yuan (HK$2.04 billion) co-developing a retail-office-hotel project on its newly acquired site in Qingdao, Shandong.

Earlier this month, Shanghai Shimao and Shiao Property Development, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qingdao Urban Development, jointly acquired the site for 920 million yuan.

Lawrence Hui, the chief financial officer of Shimao Property Holdings, which holds 64 per cent of the Shanghai-listed company, said construction costs would be twice the cost of the land, bringing the total investment to about 2.7 billion yuan.

The site will be developed into two towers - a 310-metre office building and a 280-metre hotel-and-retail block.

"The 310-metre tower will be the tallest building in Shandong," said Mr Hui.

The project will have a total gross floor area of 240,000 square metres.

Although details of the development have not yet been finalised, Mr Hui said the main office building would also include space for small businesses.

Shanghai Shimao has a 75 per cent stake in the development and state-owned Qingdao Urban Development 25 per cent.

Mr Hui said the Shanghai company would focus on expanding into commercial property development while its Hong Kong-listed vehicle, Shimao Property, would concentrate on residential projects.

The latest acquisition has boosted Shanghai Shimao's land bank to nearly 5.3 million sqmetres of gross floor area under construction on the mainland.

Meanwhile, Mr Hui said Shimao Property was still considering a proposal to spin off its mainland hotel properties. The firm deferred the flotation because of the dramatic change in the investment climate in the latter part of last year.

For the year to December, residential sales accounted for 93 per cent of Shimao Property's turnover, while 7 per cent came from rental income.

Mr Hui said Shimao Property aimed to increase its recurring income to between 15 and 20 per cent of total turnover, but he refused to give a timetable, as it would take time to build up its investment property portfolio. Shimao Property said its rental income rose 48 per cent last year to 951 million yuan, of which hotel revenue accounted for 771 million yuan, up 36.5 per cent from a year earlier.

Shares of Shimao Property dropped 3.35 per cent to close at HK$10.94 yesterday.

PetroChina's Tai'an-Qingdao-Weihai natural gas pipeline to be built this month

BEIJING, July 6 (Xinhua) - PetroChina (PTR.NYSE; 0857.HK; 601857.SH) plans to kick off the construction of its 1,024-km Tai'an-Qingdao-Weihai natural gas pipeline, the feeder line of its second West-to-East pipeline and spanning 11 cities in Shandong province.

The pipeline will feed either on the natural gas from the second Shaanxi-Tianjin pipeline or the second West-to-East pipeline, said officials from Shandong Provincial National Development and Reform Commission, without revealing its total transportation capacity or schedule for operations.

The Tai'an-Qingdao-Weihai pipeline is designed to have five feeder lines, which are expected to cover the gas supply to Shandong province, turf currently claimed by Sinopec, PetroChina's rival. Enditem

Tsingtao Beer's hometown in China starts work on first subway line

QINGDAO, June 26 (Xinhua) -- Construction started Friday on the first subway line in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao, home of world-famous Tsingtao Beer.

A 25.1-kilometer line with 22 stops will be built in the seaside city, the venue of sailing events for last summer's Olympics, at a cost of 13 billion yuan (1.9 billion U.S. dollars), said Liu Jianjun, executive deputy head of the subway construction headquarters.

Upgraders fuel demand in Qingdao
Market growing as rising affluence leading residents to look for bigger flats

18 November 2009
South China Morning Post

Liu Zhigong, an electronics engineer in Qingdao in northeastern China, is searching for a bigger home almost double the size of his existing apartment.

In his case the search has not been prompted by a desire to beat any further clampdowns on credit, which the market expects from the central government, but by a pressing need for more space.

"I plan to live with my parents and therefore I need a bigger flat," said Liu, who lives with his wife and son in an 80 square metre unit in Shinan district, Qingdao's traditional city centre and one of the oldest residential areas in the province.

He is now looking for a 150 square metre unit and one of his choices is a flat at Silver Carse, a residential project in Shinan.

"When my child was young I decided to live in a place close to his school. That's why I picked a smaller unit in the city centre. Now he is a secondary school student so we can move to a bigger unit in the newly developed residential district," Liu said.

"Also, my parents are getting old and I want to stay with them."

Upgraders such as Liu are a key source of demand in the Qingdao market, where many of the older apartment blocks were built in the 1980s and have become obsolete.

In line with a surging economy and rising per capita incomes, the city's property market has been flourishing.

With the addition of new upmarket flats, prices have risen to a range of 6,000 yuan to 30,000 yuan per square metre at the top end of the market, from the cheapest units costing just 1,000 yuan to 2,000 yuan per square metre in 2002, according to Yuan Chun, a deputy general manager at China Overseas Land's Qingdao office.

The city's economy grew 16 per cent in 2007 and expanded by a further 13.2 per cent last year.

Sales of flats in the city in the first six months of this year totalled 1.38 million square metres - up nearly 100 per cent on the same period last year.

The development of the Qingdao market is similar to many other mainland cities.

Michael Wu, a director of Fitch Ratings' Asia-Pacific corporate team, said: "Real demand for homes in China remains on the rise and will continue to support the development of the industry in the long run."

That view is endorsed by developer China Overseas Land, which says the mainland housing market would not see a peak until 2035.

The conclusion was based on many variables, including a 1 per cent per month increase in the process of urbanisation, said an executive of the company. "We may see short-term fluctuations but the long-term outlook is good," he said.

Housing prices in the mainland's 70 biggest cities increased 3.9 per cent last month from October last year, the fastest rate of property inflation since September last year and confirming a solid rebound from a slump that began in the fourth quarter.

During January to September this year, gross residential floor area sold on the mainland totalled 537 million sq metres, a 46 per cent increase year on year and 24 per cent higher than the same period in 2007, according to investment bank UBS.

Prices in the four first-tier cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen have risen 20 per cent since the end of last year because of much stronger investment demand, and were up in the high teens in many second-tier cities, UBS said in a recent report.

On Monday the central government's top think tank, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, predicted that housing prices would keep rising next year.

"Our view is that property prices will keep rising in 2010, but that there will be some volatility," researcher Ni Pengfei said.

The traditional rush by banks to lend at the start of the year would be seen early next year. Monetary policy was still relatively loose, providing ample cash for property acquisitions, Ni said.

Rising inflationary expectations would also prompt investors to put more cash into real estate assets that benefit from rising price levels. The mainland's long-term urbanisation trend has underpinned the property market but some analysts are concerned over housing affordability for many ordinary people. Other concerns include the potential tightening of housing policy.

However, analysts said these concerns should not be overstated as housing demand would be largely a function of affordability, liquidity and policy in the near term, and demand would remain strong in the long term.

"Because prices in many cities have gone up [so fast] in such a short time, affordability is worsening and end-user demand will inevitably be affected," the UBS report said.

As a result, while policy changes might cause some near-term pain to both physical and capital market sentiment, this would be necessary for ensuring healthier and more sustainable growth in the economy as a whole, it added.

TESCO to Open Lifespace Shopping Mall in Qingdao

QINGDAO, December 29, SinoCast -- British retailer Tesco is seeking to open Lifespace Mall in the city of Qingdao, China's eastern coastal Shandong Province, in a move to play catch-up with retailing giants such as Wal-Mart and Carrefour.

Located at the intersection of Renmin road and Chongqing South road, the new Lifespace Mall is a comprehensive shopping center which is made up of seven floors, including two underground and five above ground, and 600 parking spaces.

With a total construction area of 74,000 square meters, it will encompass a long list of Chinese and international brands such as KFC, Pizza Hut, Holiland, Daphne, Etam, and Mickey.

Tesco cut into the Chinese market in 2004 and it now has set up 65 supermarkets and six trial convenience stores in 29 Chinese cities.

TESCO's upcoming presence in Qingdao is the latest example of how Qingdao is successfully attracting national and international investment; so far, 82 out of the top 500 enterprises worldwide have built up their presence in the city, with 168 individual projects.

Monster project coming right next to ITC towers? 5x45-60 floors according to the website.
Zhongrun Office Project.












From http://www.jy-design.com.cn/

In the last render you can see the ITC project on the left. Notice that the tallest ITC towers are well above 200m, so all the 5 towers of the Zhongrun project are very likely to be above 200m too.

New zone attracts high-tech and innovative companies
28 May 2010
Shanghai Daily

TRIPS to stars, moon visits, aliens and 3-D are often winning elements in movies, as "Avatar" has demonstrated.

Now a Chinese start-up firm in Qingdao has produced 3-D titles, such as "Alien Zoo" and "Back to the Moon."

The company, Animell Digital International Co, has produced several 3-D cartoon titles and distributed them in the West and domestic markets.

"Our latest expansion plans call for new organizations to train our own animation professionals and voice actors," says Zhou Yuan, deputy manager of the company in the east coastal city.

"That will help improve product quality, save costs and also be in line with international business models."

Animell's development is just the latest example in Qingdao's ambition to build itself into an innovation city.

Besides traditional home appliance giants Haier Group and Hisense Corp, many young firms, with various innovative ideas, have chosen Qingdao to develop business and seek opportunities.

The city has instituted policy incentives to encourage high-tech, low-polluting and low energy-consuming enterprises to move to Qingdao.

The city offers a projected 63-square-kilometer area to accommodate innovative development, pioneering technology, energy-efficient infrastructure and investment-friendly policies, according to Zhao Shiyu, deputy director-general of the Qingdao High-tech Industrial Development Zone Administrative Committee.

Other projects include a LED chipset manufacturing facility and a telecommunications antenna factory.

The LED (light emitting diode) project, which cost 400 million yuan (US$58.8 million), may upgrade production line technology this year. It makes sapphire chipsets, a key component used in energy-efficient solid lighting, according to Istarwafer Technology Co Ltd.

Fang Yongqiang, general manager of the Qingdao Utone Communication Equipment Co, says the antenna manufacturing company will start production by the end of this month, with an initial investment of 300 million yuan.

"There is still space in the market if products are innovative," says Fang. Utone Communication's products feature a wider angle for receiving signals compared with rivals, Fang adds.

Haier and Hisense, with a long history in Qingdao, have also invested heavily to develop innovative products.

The firms have both launched Internet TVs, which feature more interactive functions.

Meanwhile, they plan to launch TVs that support 3-D display in the second quarter.

Meanwhile, overseas players like Sony and Samsung have kicked off 3-D TV in the overseas markets.

"Though it's a new concept product in China, it will become popular one day," says a Hisense official during a recent display show in Shanghai. "That was what happened with LCD TV."

Concerning the animation firm Animell, it has formed an integrative animation industry structure, including creative design, cartoon image authorization, media integration, derivatives development, service outsourcing, marketing operations and animation education.

"We started business through outsourcing orders," says Zhou. "Now we aim to export self-innovation products and Chinese culture to the global market."

Q & A on policies and incentives

An interview with Zhao Shiyu, deputy director-general of the Qingdao High-tech Industrial Development Zone Administrative Committee.

Q: What are Qingdao's core development industries?

A: Seven core industries are expected to develop in the zone, including electronic information, marine science and technology, medicine and biotechnology, advanced equipment manufacturing, modern services, new materials and new energy, and energy efficiency.

Q: What's the zone's target?

A: By the end of March, it attracted 7.3 billion yuan contracted investment. By 2012, it's expected to attract 50 high-tech projects with employee levels of 20,000 to 30,000. The high-tech output will reach 220 billion yuan, which will account for 20 percent of the city's GDP.

At the same time, the zone will be designed in an environmentally friendly and modern style. All utilities will be underground. No sewer covers can be seen on the roads and no electricity wires can be seen in the sky.

Q: What are the special policies?

A: Preferential policies include tax incentives, subsidy support and finance support. For example, certificated high-tech enterprises in the zone can benefit from an income tax rate of 15 percent. Integrated circuit manufacturing enterprises with investment of more than 8 billion yuan or manufacturing integrated circuit lines less than 0.25 microns wide can be taxed at a rate of 15 percent.

The zone administration will cooperate with banks to issue combined bonds for small- and median sized enterprises, which will help ease the financial burden.

Q: What are the zone requirements?

A: We have a "three-nos" policy. We will reject firms that are not high-tech, that consume huge amounts of electricity, or that pollute.

Intoxicating museum of world wines
3 June 2010
Shanghai Daily

ONE of Qingdao's new and intoxicating ventures is Red Wine Street featuring China's biggest wine museum in a vast air-raid shelter, wine bars, wine stores, cafes and restaurants. Chen Ye takes a sip.

In China's biggest wine museum, visitors stroll down Wine Chateau Boulevard, learn the history and technology of wine making, glimpse vineyards around the world and, of course, drink wine.

The more Chinese know about wine, the more they are likely to drink, and China has a long way to go. Average annual per capita consumption is only 0.33 liters, compared with world champion Luxembourg at 70.36 liters, the museum says.

The 8,800-square-meter Qingdao Wine Museum is built in an underground air-raid shelter, making it perfectly cool for a wine cellar as well as a wine bank. There connoisseurs can store their vintages and get advice on investments.

It has 19 wine bars featuring wines from more than 20 countries and regions, including Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and the United States.

The museum is located on Qingdao Red Wine Street, a major economic development, that opened last September and features numerous wine stores selling wines (red, white, sparkling) from around the world. The developing commercial street also features cafes and restaurants. The street is near Qingdao's famous Beer Street.

"The museum focuses on the origins and history of wine, displays wine culture and promotes the wine technology and knowledge," says museum Director Wang Qifan.

Visitors walk down a 192-meter-long corridor, the Wine Chateau Boulevard, featuring interactive displays, LED screens and numerous exhibitions covering every aspect of wine and wine making through the ages around the world, including wine rituals.

It also features Chinese wines, legendary yellow rice wines and newer vintages of reds and covers the notable wines of Shandong Province and other wine-growing regions.

At the entrance is a large statue of the Greek god of wine, Dionysus (Bacchus) near a grape vine.

"Dionysus not only has the power to intoxicate people but also to maintain peace and love in the world," says Wang.

Displays include wine containers through the ages, including ancient Chinese pots, Greek amphorae, barrels of all kinds, glasses, cups, decanters and accessories.

The UK government donated a 400-year-old set of crystal glasses once owned by an aristocrat.

The museum displays oil paintings and sculptures from around the world that feature wine and wine drinking.

Wang says the museum houses China's first wine bank, perfectly temperature controlled.

"Our professional staff provides wine selection service, storage service, advice on vintages, wine investments and other issues," Wang says.

The museum contains an exhibit by Huadong cellar, one of China's most famous brands.

"The Qingdao government aims to create a brand-new Lan Kwai Fong (a famous bar street in Hong Kong)," says Lin Hong, director of Information Office of Qingdao.

"It is rebuilding Yan'an No.1 Road, Huangshan Road and Guangrao Road for the purpose to establishing an awesome wine street for Qingdao," he says.

"People who understand wine can enjoy it better," says Xin Ye, the museum designer.

"Compared with the rest of the world, our wine consumption is very low and we have a huge distance to cover, lots of room to improve."

The museum will help people learn wine history and culture and this will encourage them to drink wine, Xin says.

"Wine in moderation is healthy."

Qingdao leading new wave of development
29 July 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

With the rapid development of advanced equipment manufacturing, high-tech industries and modern services, Qingdao, a coastal city in Shandong, is becoming an industrial leader.

"Qingdao will take advantage of its high technologies, talent pool and innovative strength to pilot Shandong's plan to foster high-end industry clusters in the Jiaodong Peninsula," Xia Geng, mayor of Qingdao, told China Daily.

At present, Qingdao's equipment manufacturing industry accounts for 31.3 percent of the city's industrial sales revenues. High-tech industries account for 46.5 percent of Qingdao's total industrial output value.

In 2009, the output value of high-tech industries in the city was more than 445 billion yuan, up 15.7 percent from the year before.

According to a plan unveiled last December, Qingdao will accelerate development of high-end industries. Among the key industries listed in the plan are marine research and development, biological engineering and new materials; and advanced equipment manufacturing.

Planners estimate the output value of the city's advanced equipment manufacturing industry will reach 540 billion yuan by 2012.

Other predictions place future high-tech industrial output value at an excess of 650 billion yuan.

Finance, logistics and similar high value-added services are also expected to grow, with output value hitting 190 billion yuan.

Attracting investors

Qingdao has already attracted many domestic and foreign investments.

According to the Qingdao Bureau of Commerce, 42 well-known domestic companies - including Datang Power, China Railway Logistics, China Resources, Poly, and Shenzhen Huaqiang - invested in 65 projects in the city last year, contributing a total of 106.8 billion yuan.

In addition, 83 of the world's top 500 enterprises have invested in 175 projects within Qingdao. The projects involve high-end industries such as new energy, new materials, bio-medicine, shipbuilding, marine science and technology, and modern services.

As a result, a number of cutting-edge products have been produced. For example, CSR Qingdao Sifang Rolling Stock Co Ltd has developed trains that reach speeds up to 350 km/h.

Qingdao is also an important manufacturing base for ships, household electrical appliances and light helicopters.

And a number of high-end industrial parks have developed rapidly in Qingdao. Its high-tech industrial zone saw the establishment of 21 large projects last year with a total investment of 6.3 billion yuan.

Large projects

Qingdao North Ship Heavy Industry Group invested 7.4 billion yuan in a huge shipbuilding and repair facility last year in Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone. The facility was immediately followed by several large part manufacturing projects, each with an investment of more than 2 billion yuan.

The zone is now the largest shipbuilding and repair base in China, with an annual shipbuilding capacity of 2 million dead weight tons.

In March, construction began on a new semiconductor lighting and display production base in Jiaozhou Bay New Area, with a total investment of 18 billion yuan. It is expected to lead to the formation of an industrial chain with an annual output value of more than 80 billion yuan in five to eight years.

Just a month later, China's first large-scale sapphire LED chip production project became operational in Qingdao high-tech zone, helping efforts to minimize reliance on imported products.

Now, construction of Eastern Everbright Co's communication plastic optical fiber project is underway. It is expected to occupy 40 percent of the global plastic optical fiber market share.

Admiral Oversea Corporation, a global display manufacturing giant, will build its 10th largest global production base in Qingdao. The project will be completed in 2011 and have an annual production capacity of 2 million units.

Qingdao is home to 27 well-known Chinese trademarks and 68 famous Chinese brands.
