SHENZHEN has launched an international consultation for Bao’an central area’s urban design, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported Saturday.

The consultation is aimed at finding a high-level design scheme from experts with international experience and global vision, to turn Bao’an central area into an international coastal city landmark.

The area is located in the city’s west and the Pearl River’s east bank. It is a core part of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and an important component of the Qianhai new city center.

It will be constructed into a modern innovative urban center with a more distinctive image, more attractive spatial quality, more complete urban functions, stronger humanistic and artistic atmosphere and closer urban-sea relations.

The design scope includes two levels: overall design and key designs. The overall design covers Bao’an’s coastal area and Dachanwan area, with a total area of about 719 hectares.

The key design scope includes two relatively concentrated clusters, with a total area of about 201 hectares, of which the West Cluster covers an area of about 139 hectares and the East Cluster covers an area of about 62 hectares.

The international consultation aims to achieve three objectives. First, it should create a new image of space.

Second, the designers must have the combination of world experience and the understanding of Shenzhen and Qianhai’s future development.

Third, the designers must put forward a future-oriented urban design concept and development model, pay attention to the technology and concept innovation in the fields of green ecology, intelligent transportation and smart city, and demonstrate the future ways of work, life and leisure.

The international consultation adopts the global public registration method. The design agencies must submit their corresponding registration documents according to the consultation rules and technical assignment.

Organizers will establish a qualification review committee, which assesses the applicants’ domestic and international reputation, achievements, team member configuration, understanding of the project and work ideas.
