Beijing land sales soar on tough bidding
The Standard
Thursday, July 25, 2013

Total land sales in Beijing since January have already exceeded those for the whole of last year as some state-owned enterprises have been aggressively bidding for fresh plots, mainland media reported.

Land revenue in the capital amounted to 85 billion yuan (HK$107.41 billion) from January 1 to July 23, versus 65 billion yuan in 2012, 21st Century Business Herald reported yesterday.

In Shanghai, the land market is also heating up with active transactions. A joint venture between Sunac China (1918) and Green Town China (3900) bid for a plot in the downtown area for 1.04 billion yuan, a report said.

The commercial-use site, with an area of 10,239 square meters, finally went for 26,832 yuan per sqm - 49percent above its opening price. The Shanghai government also put an idle plot in Xuhui Region for auction, with an opening price of 17.5 billion yuan.

Total investment in the commercial project is expected to hit 25 billion yuan, said CRIC senior analyst Xue Jianxiong.

"Family Box": A Kindergarten in Beijing


By Beijing-based Sino-German Architects: Crossboundaries Architects



from archdaily.com

Location: Beijing, China
Architect: Crossboundaries Architects
Collaborating Architects & Engineers: BIAD International Studio & BIAD TSH International Studio
Client: Children Enterprise (UK) Limited
Area: 2,300 sqm
Year: 2011

“We have learned that to raise a happy, healthy and hopeful child, it takes a family, it takes teachers, it takes clergy, it takes business people, it takes community leaders, it takes those who protect our health and safety, it takes all of us. Yes, it takes a village to raise a child.” – Hillary Clinton



Family Box functions both as an indoor playground and a kindergarten for children up to twelve years old, while accomodating their parents’ needs. It hosts different kinds of activities – from swimming, playing games to various classes ranging from music, dancing, crafting to cooking. Furthermore, it has a big play area, a reading area and a generous café area. Located at the outer corner of a park it is placed in a natural environment, which enhances the visibility of the building.

The different size and height between adult and child and their different angle of view was the starting point for considering Family Box should be made by two types of spaces: a kids-scale space and an adult-scale space. How to find an inspiring balance between them? How to combine the different needs?

Despite the complex program another challenging part of this project was to deal with an existing structural system, column grid and also the building footprint – due to a different original function of the building and the involvement of another design institute in an earlier project stage. The rigid concrete structure of the building did not seem the most suitable for the design purpose, that was counterbalanced in different ways. Since the two upper floors where not yet constructed, floor plates were shifted up and down and cut outs in the floor allowed views between the two floors.

The use of independent rooms in the shape of free-standing boxes allows the activities to run parallel and it offers the most suitable environment for each. The rooms have their own program or theme, they all differ from the outside space in terms of color and furniture. They have their own story and inside life and allow the children to concentrate on the program offered. At the same time, small square window openings allows maintaining contact with the outside, and parents can have a peep inside to see what is going on.

The box locations are meant to break the rigid layout of the concrete columns, which is also camouflaged with a series of arches that give a different rhythm to the environment. Visually, the common areas are treated with low contrast finishes in order to enhance and balance the space and equipments for the children.

The glass façade is wrapping all of the functions like a skin, following the given building perimeter. It has a printed pattern, which was developed out of simple single-line drawings made by children. They were modified into a pattern consisting of two different sized squares, the graphic motif is reversed: the background is white-translucent and the drawing is transparent. From far away the objects on the facade are recognizable, they indicate a building function related to children, fun and recreation

Beijing invites foreign bids for $55 bln in infrastructure projects

SHANGHAI, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Beijing's Commission of Reform and Development, the city's economic planner, will invite foreign investors to bid on 126 urban infrastructure projects collectively seeking 338 billion yuan ($55 billion) in financing, the China Daily said on Monday.

The projects include rail transport, roads, rail transit complexes, drainage treatment facilities, waste disposal and heat supply.

The report said private bids will be treated on an equal footing with bids from state-owned firms, and predicted an internal return rate of 8 percent.

"The Beijing government will take measures to ensure investors get a reasonable return," the report quoted Yang Xihui, commissioner of the economic planning agency, as saying.

Policymakers in China are struggling with a quandary; they want to increase infrastructure spending to prop up economic growth rates which have been sagging this year, but they don't want to put more high-risk debt on the books of Chinese banks, which are still struggling to digest the bad loans made during the last infrastructure binge in 2009-2010.

Regulators are signalling increasing openness to foreign money, taking a series of steps to make it easier for money to get into the country through a variety of channels, including both portfolio investment and direct investment.

However, an analysis of economic data has shown that capital began to flow back out of China in June after pouring in to chase a massive rally in the value of the yuan earlier in the year. Some economists believe the outflow is set to continue for the near future as investors reduce their exposure to China.

($1 = 6.1294 Chinese yuan)

TCM chain probed after illegal house exposed

China Daily

Beijing authorities have begun investigating a traditional Chinese medicine chain after learning its founder built an illegal house on top of a 26-story apartment building.

The Qijingtang TCM chain is being investigated by the Beijing Administration for Industry and Commerce's Chaoyang branch, a spokeswoman named Song said.

The authority will investigate the chain's licenses and release the results as soon as possible, Song said.

Zhang Biqing, the chain's founder, said he will demolish the illegal house within 15 days, as ordered by the authority, Mirror Evening News reported on Tuesday.

Haidian district chengguan, or urban patrol officers, issued a notice on Monday that Zhang should demolish the house within 15 days, as it was illegal.

The house, on top of a 26-story apartment building in the Renji Shanzhuang community, was built with rock and decorated with trees and bushes, covering more than 800 square meters.

Neighbors complained about the home as it was being built in 2007, and later about music and singing late at night after it was finished.

Zhang said he was aware of the problem and will demolish the illegal parts of the house, Mirror Evening News reported, but he dismissed allegations that he had beaten a neighbor who argued with him over the illegal building.

Zhang is a former member of a district branch of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the political advisory body, according to chengguan authorities.

His case became a hot topic among Chinese netizens, who also questioned his experience in curing diseases, which was mentioned on Qijingtang's website and the website of a medical research academy he headed.

According to its website, Qijingtang has 11 stores in Beijing and many others across the country.

"We have our own legal representative. The operation of this shop has nothing to do with Zhang," said a woman named Zhao, who is in charge of the Qijingtang chain store in the Hujialou area of Chaoyang district.

"We only introduce his therapy, but we have no contact with him now," Zhao said.

"Our massage therapists have all received formal medical training."

Zhao said the store uses magnetic acupuncture therapy to relieve pain in the cervical vertebra and omovertebral bone.

According to the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the store has been approved for prostate disease therapy.

Healthcare products on the shelves of the store in Hujialou cost from several hundred yuan to more than 2,000 yuan ($327).

The store's reception hall covers about 10 sq m, with three rows of benches for waiting patients.

According to its website, Qijingtang has a training department, which charges 3,000 yuan for a course.

People who complete the course receive training and occupation qualification certificates for therapists, which say they have been approved by the Ministry of Human Resource and Social Security.

The website was closed on Tuesday afternoon for an upgrade, according to a Qijingtang employee.

The Chaoyang branch of the Beijing Administration for Industry and Commerce said it will investigate Qijingtang's training program.

Hadid's grand design in Beijing slated by Chinese
2 August 2013
The Independent

A Chinese heritage group has accused architect Zaha Hadid of "destroying" Beijing's old town after a futuristic new development created by her practice was honoured with a top award.

Galaxy Soho, a panoramic 330,000 sq metre entertainment and office complex in the heart of Beijing, is a typically avant-garde design by the British-Iraqi architect responsible for the Olympic Park's Aquatics Centre.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) recognised the spectacular construction, designed to project "an internal world of continuous open spaces", with its International award.

The Institute has also shortlisted Galaxy Soho, Hadid's first shopping complex, for the prestigious RIBA Lubetkin Prize, awarded in September to the best new building outside of Europe. However, the Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Centre said it was "shocked" that Riba had chosen to honour Hadid's complex.

"The Galaxy Soho project has violated a number of heritage preservation laws and regulations," the organisation said in a letter to Riba, published by Building Design. "It has caused great damage to the preservation of the old Beijing streetscape, the original urban plan, the traditional Hutong and courtyard houses."

The scheme was a "typical unfortunate example of the destruction of Beijing old town". RIBA was "encouraging" developers to carry on with the "destruction of cultural heritage sites".

The letter said: "Many of us in Beijing are very disappointed and offended. We strongly believe this award by your institution will encourage developers and authorities to continue to commit... wrongs... and will increase the difficulties of cultural heritage preservation in China."

A spokesman for Zaha Hadid Architects said: "Throughout the design process, ZHA worked with the Local Design Institute (LDI) to ensure the project complies with all government building regulations and planning requirements. When ZHA was appointed to the project, no buildings existed on the site which is adjacent to large scale commercial/civic buildings and one of Beijing's busiest motorways."

Hadid's scheme, featuring her signature curving forms, was designed to reflect Beijing's architectural heritage. Its four oval domed towers "have a curving and organic shape without corners, a concept derived from the traditional Chinese courtyard." In its Lubetkin commendation, RIBA said: "The light and airy public spaces are truly innovative in a sprawling, dense urban context - cities in the West could learn much from this project." Hadid, 62, has become an architectural "superstar" in China. Her work is taught in design courses and when she gave a talk in Beijing, 15,000 architects, artists and fans attended. Her asymetrical Guangzhou Opera House won acclaim in 2010 and designs like her Wangjing SOHO towers complex have been "pirated" and produced in carbon copy forms by Chinese construction firms.

However Hank Dittmar, special adviser to Prince Charles's urban building foundation, warned that cities like Beijing, in seeking statement buildings to project their new global capital, are in danger of becoming "architectural trophy rooms" for star architects like Hadid. He said: "Addressing the lowest common denominator effect by reflecting what was destroyed in the abstract, either formally as in Galaxy Soho's courtyards, or through interpretation, is merely writing an obituary, not keeping the culture alive."

If Hadid triumphs in the Lubetkin, it would be the second year in a row that a Chinese project has won the award. Last year Wilkinson Eyre won for its Guangzhou International Finance Centre and the practice is again listed in 2013 for its Cooled Conservatories Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. In 2009 the Lubetkin went to Herzog & de Meuron's Bird's Nest in Beijing, the centrepiece of the 2008 Olympics, despite complaints that the infrastructure required for the Games had been built at the expense of the city's historic quarters.

WTF has Prince Charles to do with this? Keep growing cucumbers and carrotts while waiting for your job. China is not your area of business

A Chinese heritage group ... .

Fixed.

Note that The Independent is bashing Hadid.


"Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection" ... .

What have they done lately other than bitching? The key is rejuvenation not 'protection'.

Here is an example:

I have seen Hadid's "Galaxy Soho" building in person and it is an impressive building, but it is true that it the architect's didn't spend so much as a minute thinking about the terrible problem in central Beijing of the mass-demolition of historic Hutong districts. These Huntong areas are by far the best thing about Beijing; and they offer the perfect reference point or inspiration for a modern design. Hadid's designs, as always, completely neglect to respect or pay the slightest bit of attention to the area in which they are to be built. I really see Hadid as imposing herself on any area in which her buildings are built; I see her works as a kind of architectural Colonialism. I think that demonstrates arrogance and self-absorption, as well as disrespect for Chinese culture and ignorance of the extremely delicate topic of Chinese cultural heritage.

The view of Galaxy SOHO from the ancient Zhihua Temple / 智化寺's courtyard is absolutely cool.
