The northern area of the eastern section of Jinling Road in Dapeng New District was originally the site selection plot for the cultural and sports center. After several rounds of site selection planning research, the layout of important administrative, cultural, public security, traffic police and other ancillary facilities in the new district is considered as a whole at this stage, and technical rooms such as the public security command center, archives, local chronicles museum, traffic police brigade and corresponding service supporting facilities are constructed.

Shenzhen is the capital of design. Its municipal party committee and municipal government, the party working committee and the administrative committee of the new district have reached an consensus on the high quality of the city. Through this competition, forward-looking and innovative building communities will be selected, so that the three groups of buildings can form an overall style that echoes with, supports and shares with each other on the premise of meeting their respective functional requirements and sign identification, create a new image of the new district, and promote the implementation of the next stage of the project.

The project is located on the northwest side of the intersection of Jinling Road and planned Jinye North Road in Kuichong Central District, Dapeng New District, Shenzhen City. Plots 09-06 and 09-07 of the statutory plans of Area 401-01 [Kuichong Central District] in Longgang (currently the statutory plans are being adjusted and are to be adjusted for public management and service facilities) are about 3.4 kilometers away from Dapeng Bay. Industrial land in the east, Bijia Mountain in the north, Hetang Landscape Park and Dapeng New District Management Committee in the west, Jinling Road connecting Jinye Avenue in the south, with excellent geographical location.

The land area of the project is about 77,174 square meters, with a total construction area of 178,329 square meters, including 112,337 square meters above ground and 65,992 square meters below ground (tentatively, the underground area is mainly for equipment rooms, parking and civil air defense, and the designer can adjust the terrain according to the specific plan).

The design needs to integrate the functions and spatial relations of technical houses such as public security command center, archives, local chronicles museum, traffic police brigade and corresponding service supporting facilities. Give full consideration to the cooperation of various professional designs and the sharing of public space resources. Overall consideration should be given to urban design, architectural design and landscape design.
