Zhujiang New City

Zhujiang New Town (also call zhujiang new city) is the area in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China, which is between Huangpu Avenue in the north and the Pearl River in the south, and between Guangzhou Avenue as the west and the South China Expressway the east.
Zhujiang New Town is planned –and progressively taking shape– as the future Central Business District of Guangzhou. When completed, the whole place will become Guangzhou’s counter (part) to the spectacular development of Shanghai’s Lujiazhui Financial District. Just as in Pudong, all the major buildings are developed at great expense and meant to impress: designed by world-class architects known for their bold, forward-looking and state-of-the-art creations.
Zhujiang New Town covers an area of 6.5 square kilometers with a construction area of 14,960 thousand square meters. There are fourteen 20- to 40-hectare blocks inside the city designated by administrative block, residential block, financial and trading block, cultural activity block, and business and shopping blocks.
The Opera House is perhaps the most striking example of Guangzhou’s confidence and competitiveness. The building is Zaha Hadid’s first Opera House. The construction posed formidable engineering challenges, so all credit must go to the Chinese workers and engineers for completing such an incredible building. Hopefully, the Opera House will be able to attract international companies and artistes to perform regularly in Guangzhou.
For tourists, sightseers, local residents and photographers, the Opera House will be quite a wonderful contrast to the high-rise buildings in the New City, esp. the shoreline of the Pearl River, the skyline of Guangzhou’s Tianhe Sports Center and the 88-story Citic Plaza, combined with the Double Towers (Guangzhou International Finance Centre.) and the TV tower, create a beautiful view of scenic Guangzhou.
Hopefully more 5-star hotels will open within the next year along with places to eat and drink.
