IV. Project Overview
Located at the core of Unit 1 of Guiwan Area, the CBD of Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone of Shenzhen, Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Upper Building Complex Project covers 20 hectares of the total site area, including two parts: the integrated transport hub and the upper building complex project.

The integrated transport hub is mainly composed of three underground metro lines and two intercity lines (from east to west, respectively, operating  Metro lines 1, 5, and 11, the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway under design and the Shenzhen-Hong Kong West Express Railway under planning), the Shenzhen-Hong Kong transit port, bus, taxi and other transport transfer stations. After completion, it is expected that the total passenger flow volume will reach 750,000 passengers per day. In the future, the public transport sharing rate of the project will reach 87%, of which rail transit accounts for 75%, and conventional buses for 12%; the sharing rate for cars and taxis will reach 13%, of which cars account for 10% and taxis for 3%.

The original plan of the upper building complex project included nine tower buildings and their annexes, single commercial upper building complex along Line 11 as well as supporting office, commercial and port facilities along the intercity railway. The originally-planned eight tower buildings (T1-T8) were arranged between Line 11 and the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway from north to south in the east area of the project. One tower building (T9) was located between the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Railway and the Shenzhen-Hong Kong West Express Railway in the west area. The aviation height limit in the project area is 300m, with a capacity building area of 1,278,000 ㎡, including 749,000 ㎡ of offices, 126,000 ㎡ of hotels, 130,000 ㎡ of apartments, and 198,000 ㎡ of above-ground commercial buildings (another 52,000 ㎡ of underground commercial buildings).

The gross floor area of the Qianhai Integrated Transport Hub and Upper Building Complex Project is estimated to be about 2,159,000 ㎡, of which the floor area of underground space is about 881,000 ㎡.

Considering the safety of metro operation and the needs of phased sales and operations, the upper building complex project is planned to be alternatively developed in phases and buildings. It is divided into six phases, Phase1-5 locate in the east area of the project, and Phase 6 lies in the west area of the project. Currently, the Phase 1-4 schemes of the upper building complex project are basically stable. The capacity building area of the remaining Phase 5 and 6 is 770,000㎡, including office, commercial, and business apartments, hotels, and supporting facilities as well as around 40,000 ㎡ of the underground commercial floor area. In addition, there are port facilities and supporting facilities (including small garbage transfer stations, renewable resource recycling stations, public toilets, sanitation workers’ lounges, rail transit substations), etc. The construction of the underground diaphragm wall of Phase 1-5 (T1 to T8) has been completed, and foundation excavation earthworks of Phase 1 and 2 are under construction. At present, the skipped excavation method is adopted at the site. No specific design has been carried out for the Phase 5 and 6.
