Well, since Hangzhou city center is a very established area for shopping and entertainment. I think this new CBD will be just an office park for a very long time.

It will be interesting to see how civic life blooms in China's rebuilt cities. All these new areas look so dead, they must be ghost towns at night.

Yes, attracting people is never a problem for cities in China. This area is designed specifically to keep the people away so that office workers can have a quiet working environment. In China quiet & clean==good & unique. Bustling==old fashioned & just like everywhere else.

BTW, the picture is Nanjing Road of Shanghai

China Second-Tier City Office Vacancy to Rise on Overbuilding, CBRE Says
By Bloomberg News - Mar 29, 2011

Business Exchange Buzz up! Digg Print Email China’s office vacancy may rise in some of the country’s less affluent cities as developers overbuild, driving rents down “over the next two to three years,” the world’s biggest commercial property broker said.

“The challenge is there will be a timing mismatch,” Chris Brooke, chief executive office for Greater China at New York- based CB Richard Ellis Inc., said in an interview in Beijing. “In some second-tier cities, you may have 10 to 15 buildings being built simultaneously and that’s not going to be sustainable in terms of the short-term demand.”

Countrywide home-price curbs and local governments’ plans to develop business districts in so-called second-tier cities are luring developers away from residential development, as well as from the biggest metropolitan areas including Shanghai and Beijing. Commercial real estate investment in China jumped 42 percent last year from 2009, according to Cushman & Wakefield Inc., the biggest closely held property services company.

Hangzhou, Tianjin, Nanjing and Ningbo may be among cities where there may be rising vacancies and falling rents, Brooke said. First-tier cities include wealthier Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou in southern China, according to China’s National Bureau of Statistics. The second tier includes provincial capitals such as Chengdu and Wuhan and the third includes smaller cities.

China will be home to 44 percent of skyscrapers being built globally in the next six years, underscoring concerns that excessive investment will lead to a sharp economic slowdown, Barclays Plc’s Hong Kong-based analyst Andrew Lawrence said in a January report.

‘Significant Gain’
Soho China Ltd. (410), the biggest developer in Beijing’s central business district, said earlier this month commercial property prices in China may see “a significant gain” that will help draw more investors. Even so, the company said it has no plans to expand into second-tier cities.

Some new office building in second-tier cities “are going to be empty,” Andy Zhang, managing director for China at Cushman & Wakefield, said in an interview. “It’ll be a big waste. We’re worried about some local governments’ plans of building financial centers or metropolis.”

China this year raised the minimum down payment for second-home purchases and introduced taxes on residential properties in Shanghai and Chongqing. Beijing and Shanghai also announced restrictions on home purchases last month, responding to measures imposed by the central government.

Hangzhou to play a role in a new round of development
China Daily
Updated: 2011-06-01 08:26

When the government of Zhejiang is talking about developing a "marine economy", Hangzhou - the province's capital - is expected to have an adequate role to play in this new round of growth.

Almost a hub for everything - politics, culture, education, manufacturing and services - in the province, Hangzhou lacks an important thing for developing a marine economy - a big seaport.

Although at the estuary of the Qiantang River, Hangzhou is not likely to build a big port because of the severely silted coast.

But this does not mean it cannot build a marine economy in the future.

The marine economy is not limited to port transportation - it covers a wide range of fields from agriculture, manufacturing and services.

According the city's five-year development plan for 2011-2015, Hangzhou will put its emphasis on such sectors as research of marine sciences and technologies, manufacturing of marine equipment, marine biotechnologies and medicines, comprehensive use of seawater and marine-related services.

In marine research, the city has a number of leading institutions including the Second Marine Research Institute of China and the Hangzhou Seawater Treatment Research and Development Center - a professional institute for seawater desalination.

Hangzhou also has a number of competitive enterprises in marine equipment manufacturing.

For instance, the Hangzhou Qianjin Gearbox Group is the nation's leading producer of gearboxes used in ships and vessels. Its products now take up 65 percent of market share in China and more than 70 percent in Southeast Asia.

The Zhonggao Engines Co Ltd is a newly established company in Hangzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone, mainly producing large-capacity engines for ocean-going vessels.

Seeing the mounting number of orders since the last half of 2010, Shi Qingzhe, board chairman of Zhonggao, said he is optimistic about his company and the industry.

"Basic facilities (like our products) is necessary for developing a marine economy," he said, adding that the investment in engine production can account for the one-fifth of the total investment in developing a marine economy.

Cool interior pics...

Thought it was a theatre, opera house or something similar when I was in Hangzhou during summer, but I was wrong!

The Airport Terminal 3 is conceptually and visually disappointing. I hope it is cheap to build and maintain .
