Baietan Urban Design Master Plan

Guangzhou, China

The Baietan Master Plan envisions a sustainability-integrated city with over 740,000 residents and 660,000 employees situated on the banks of the Pearl River in central Guangzhou, China. Baietan will be Guangzhou's International Commercial Center located at the heart of the Guang-Fo region. Situated to the Southwest of historic Shamian Island, a 35 square kilometer area of former industrial land will be transformed into a twenty-first century urban environment that combines the core qualities of Lingnan culture with urban density, transit accessibility, livability, and ecological vitality.

Project Facts

Site Area: 3,500 hectares

Actually the preliminary height is 650m, not 600m. But this is just concept, so it may be taller or shorter in the end.

I think I've read somewhere that they'll release the designs in 2010.


“白鹅潭是广州五大功能区之一,从今年开始每年投入200亿元,累计5年有1000 亿元投入,这里正建设中国唯一的国际医药港,还将特别规划建设一栋650米的高楼,将是世界第二高楼。白鹅潭的崛起对荔湾、广州乃至珠三角地区都是重大的亮点和新名片。”周亚伟对荔湾的未来充满了自信和自豪。

记者从荔湾区规划局了解到,650米高楼的规划方案由美国设计师设计,地点在芳村隧道口附近,由于市规划设计要求,该高楼可能退居临江三线位置。不过,该方案仍须经过广州市规划委员会专家审议,再上交市政府常务会议讨论通过,才能成为法定规划,交由市规划局执行。

Amazing this CBD will probably merge city of Guangzhou and Foshan into one since it's located in between the two. Guangzhou is currently 3rd largest city in China.

^^ From Guangzhou (Zhujiang CBD to Baietan CBD) to near by city of Foshan. Possible future merging of the two city, into "GuangFo".

^^ I hope none!!!!!! Burj is just too tall to fit into any skyline. I prefer these 400-600m towers. They are really classy and really define the skyline without standing out too much!.

Wow, Foshan is so close to Guangzhou!!!!!!!!!! How long does it take to drive from guangzhou to foshan?

Who in China will beat the Burj? Guangzhou? Shanghai? Shenzhen???
if kingdom center gets started, saudi arabia will get the title for the tallest skyscraper next though. For China its only a matter of time though. I wouldn't underrate Chongqing and the other booming cities though, there are so many projects going on right now
