The international consultation on urban design of Shenzhen North Railway Station Hub Area is about to start soon!

Shenzhen North Railway Station Hub Area is located in the central part of Shenzhen, and borders Banxuegang High-Tech Zone to the east and Xili University Town to the west, about 6km away from Futian CBD on the south, which will be the critical junction for south connection, north expansion and central axis enhancement of Shenzhen City. The area comprises Shenzhen's largest high-speed railway hub (11 stations, 20 lines, designed passenger flow of 200,000 people/day). In addition to the completed Metro Lines 4/5 and the Metro Lines 6/22 under construction, there will be Metro Line 27 and Shenzhen–Huizhou Intercity Rail Line in the future. The area will help Shenzhen connect to the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and build a pilot area for integrated regional development, and turn into a window and gateway for Shenzhen to build a pilot demonstration area of socialism with Chinese characteristics and demonstrate its urban culture and people's happiness.

In order to create a people-oriented urban space with international vision and regional characteristics and continue to improve the urban design at a high level, the municipal and district governments will jointly carry out this international consultation, and solicit prospective, creative and feasible urban design schemes from excellent planning and design agencies at home and abroad, for the purpose of building Shenzhen North Railway Station Hub Area into a world-class leading gateway to Guangdong - Hong Kong - Macao Greater Bay Area and an urban living room of Shenzhen with green ecology, openness and sharing, diverse charm and high happiness index.
