SHENZHEN | Stock Exchange Plaza | 246m | 807ft | 51 fl | Com

Shenzhen Building: PR Nov 2007 from Office for Metropolitan Architecture

New Shenzhen Stock Exchange HQ

Construction Begins On China’s Shenzhen Stock Exchange Designed by OMA

(Shenzhen; 22 November 2007) Officials from the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SSE) and local government together with representatives from the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) have broken ground for the construction of the new headquarters for China’s equivalent of the NASDAQ.

The new SSE is planned as a financial center with civic meaning. The external area is designed as a public space for festivals and gathering whilst the 250m tall tower will host the trading floor of high-tech and many new, high growth stocks as well as the SSE offices, registration and clearing house, the Securities Information Company and ancillary services in a gross floor area of 200,000m2.

The premise of OMA’s design is based on the essence of the stock market as speculation and the desire to create a building that is beyond symbolism for an almost virtual stock market.

For millennia the solid building has stood on a solid base which anchors the structure and connects it emphatically to the ground. In the SSE building the traditional base is lifted up the tower to become a floating platform to broadcast the economic information of the virtual market and in turn liberate the space on the ground for public space and events.

Founder and Partner of OMA, Rem Koolhaas, OMA's Managing Partner Victor van der Chijs and the Senior Associate in charge of the project Kunle Adeyemi were present at the ceremony, along with the entire project team - including the OMA team now relocated to Shenzhen to ensure the proper completion of the building.

“The progress of this project has been a source of pride for both parties,” said OMA Managing Partner, Victor van der Chijs. “Less than one year ago OMA was announced the winner of the design competition and we now have a dedicated team in Shenzhen to oversee the completion of The Stock Exchange in 2010,” said Mr van der Chijs.

Mr. Adeyemi added that ''In spite of the accelerated design process, the team is pleased to have been able to retain and enhance the project's original concept design intents.''

The Stock Exchange will be built in Shenzhen’s new Financial District adjacent to the administrative and cultural center of the city.

It look nice. It looks like a modern Japanese traditional highrise design. I wonder how the trading floor look like? I'm hoping it will look like the Tokyo Stock Exchange or NYSE and not look like the Hong Kong's or the Shanghai's.

A stock exchange with 250m? That doesn't make sense to me at all.

Are they just going to plug every piffling provincial stock exchange of our sphere into it?
