The Universiade Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Science & Education City in Longgang District, Shenzhen, where the Universiade Hub is located, is one of the six “new urban parlors” in Shenzhen, along with Qianhai New City Center, Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base, Xiangmi Lake New Financial Center, Guangming Science City, and Bao’an Central Area. Nowadays, Longgang District proposes to vigorously implement the development strategy of “One Hub, Two Cores, and Multiple Support Points”, so as to increase the functions and coverage of Universiade Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Science & Education City, enhance its positioning and function level, and build it into a science & education innovation center and a high-level international “new urban parlor” that centers around the deep industry-university-research integration and reflect the characteristics of Shenzhen-Hong Kong cooperation. It will become an international cooperation center for higher education and an international cultural & sports exchange center in Shenzhen, and serve as a comprehensive service center in the eastern part of the city.
As one of the 14 integrated rail hubs in Shenzhen, the Universiade Hub connects the Airport in the west and south of Huizhou in the east. It will converge four lines in the future, including the Line 3 (operational), and the ongoing Line 14, 16 and Shenzhen-Daya Bay Intercity Line (under construction). Upon the full operation of the four lines, the Universiade Hub is expected to handle a daily passenger traffic of 434,000, including 246,000 incoming and outgoing passengers and 188,000 ones for interchange.
To build a high-standard station-city integrated traffic hub, the International Architecture Design Competition for Plots 13-05, 13-06, 13-07, and 13-08 of the Universiade Hub is hereby launched.
