The International Competition for the Planning and Conceptual Design of Phase 6 (West Area) of Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Upper Building Complex Project will start soon! The pre-announcement is hereby issued to expand the spread and popularity of the project.
International Competition for the Planning and Conceptual Design of Phase 6 (West Area) of Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Upper Building Complex Project
The core of Unit 1 of Guiwan Area, the central business district of Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone of Shenzhen
Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Superstructure Project are located at the core of Unit 1 of Guiwan Area, the central business district of Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone of Shenzhen, with a total area of about 20 hectares, and consist of the integrated transport hub and the Upper Building Complex project.
The integrated transport hub mainly includes three metro lines and two intercity lines (from east to west, they are the Metro Lines 1, 5 and 11 that are being operated, the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway under design, and the Shenzhen-Hong Kong West Express Railway under planning), Shenzhen-Hong Kong transit port, and bus and taxi transfer station. After completion, it is expected to have a flow of 750,000 passengers a day. The public transportation share ratio of the project will reach 87% in the future, including 75% of rail transit and 12% of bus transit; the car and taxi share ratio thereof will reach 13%, including 10% of cars, and 3% of taxis.
In the original plan, the Upper Building Complex project includes 9 towers and their podiums, the commercial village on Line 11, and the upper office, commerce and port supporting facilities on the intercity railway; 8 towers (T1~T8) will distribute in the east area of the project between Line 11 and Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway from north to south, and 1 tower (T9) will be located in the west area of the project between Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway and Shenzhen-Hong Kong West Express Railway. The height limit imposed by aviation in the project area is 300m. The floor area included in the FAR calculation is 1.278 million ㎡, of which the office occupies 749,000㎡, hotel 126,000㎡, apartment 130,000㎡ and commercial use 198,000㎡ (otherwise underground commercial use 52,000㎡).
The total floor area of the Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Superstructure Project is estimated to be 2.159 million ㎡, including the floor area of underground spaces of about 881,000㎡.
The design contents include international competition and detailed design stages:
（1）International competition stage: Planning design of phase 6
In combination with the Planning of the Qianhai New Urban Center and the urban design requirements of the central axis of Qianhai Urban Living Room, carry out the planning and design of phase 6 of the upper building complex project, planning optimization of phase 5 and layout of overall indicators for phases 5 and 6, determine the business types and coordinate, reasonably plan and arrange the commerce of phases 5 and 6; reasonably arrange the architectural spaces, optimize the skyline, and create highlights in combination with the central axis design of Qianhai Urban Living Room design, to further improve the architectural space quality.
（2）Conceptual design of phase 6
