Since Beijing's deputy center status is established, Tongzhou has become one of the core forces in the urban evolution. From the comprehensive construction of the new city to the rise of the Canal CBD, there is endless good news and the regional outlook is changing with each passing day. What makes Tongzhou so lucky and attractive? How it can be entitled as the world’s ninth largest bay area CBD?
Beijing needs a new CBD
CBD is an important indicator of a city's development level. Since its establishment 30 years ago, the China World Trade Center CBD has been playing the role of Beijing's international business. In recent years, with the pace of Beijing's urban construction, Beijing increasingly needs for the capital's CBD. In addition to gathering the high-end corporate headquarters, a CBD also requires convenient traffic and a green ecological atmosphere that is in line with the international standards. Because of the regional mass restrictions, the China World Trade Center CBD has too many buildings, dense population and poor traffic. Too many disadvantages have become bottlenecks that limit the growth of the CBD and Beijing's internationalization.
In the meantime, in the face of Beijing's ever-rising international status, many Fortune 500 companies have stationed and put forward more requirements on the business environment of the CBD. In the face of the limitations of the traditional China World Trade Center CBD, most enterprises choose Wangjing and Yizhuang which are more open. The decentralized layout of international enterprises has reduced the significance of CBD to pool capital and information. Beijing urgently needs a new CBD! Where is the perfect place to build one?
Bay area CBD, lighting up Beijing Deputy center
With the announcement of Tongzhou as the Deputy center of Beijing and the eastward relocations of the city government, the economic center, cultural center, high-end medical facilities and diplomatic clusters of Beijing will settle in Tongzhou. Upgraded into a new international city, Tongzhou starts to build the world-class city with the pattern of One core with Five zones over the planned are of 155 square kilometers. And one core means the Canal CBD area which is located at the interchange of five rivers, with a total area of 16 square kilometers. This is the strategic engineer for Tongzhou to build the international city. And the five zones refer to Songzhou Culture and Creative industry Zone, International Medical Service Zone, International Organization Zone, Tongzhou Cultural Tourism Zone, and Bohai High-end Headquarter Base.
The strong planning support, international cutting-edge concepts, and the natural ecological advantages of the canal make the canal become the best choice for an international CBD. Although Tongzhou Canal CBD sounds like the China World Trade Center CBD or the Financial Street, its specification is actually much higher and its planning area is twice that of the World Trade Center CBD. First, its planning area is twice of the China World Trade Center CBD. Next, Tongzhou Canal CBD adopts the idea of first planning and later construction to effectively avoid the occurrence of urban diseases such as traffic stress and population pressure in the core areas of China World Trade Center.
At present, with the high-end business as the main body and the headquarters as the characteristic, the canal CBD planning is an important space to extract the business function of the central city, enhance the consumption functions, supplement the international functions and gather the cultural industries. Under the deployment and guidance of the government, it will focus on the development of business and trade, conferences and exhibitions and comprehensive services, actively introduce headquarters of multinationals, well-known corporates, and influential private enterprises, attract the financial, service, technology companies and think tanks to station. With high-end industries, high-end elements and talents gathering, it strives to create a new international center and international hub to integrate the history, human arts, administration, economy and finance, and industrial development.
With the Tod three-dimensional traffic mode, the Canal CBD plans to have six horizontal and two vertical lines. The six horizontal lines refer to Chaoyang Road, Chaoyang North Road, Jingtong Express, Tongyan Highway, Guangqu Road Phase 2, and Yunhe Street which will be upgraded as city express way soon. The two vertical lines mean the 5th Ring Road and the 6th Ring Road. In terms of the railway traffic, now Tongzhou has the Line 6 and Line Batong. In accordance with the 2025 Beijing subway plan, among the future 21 subway lines, 10 will cover the new city of Tongzhou. The international city traffic will provide the global business speed for the Canal CBD.
Upon completion, it will become the ninth largest bay area CBD in the world and occupy the commanding height of the world's commercial economy. Just like other eight bay area CBDs in Manhattan, Canary Wharf in London, Central Hong Kong, Lujiazui in Shanghai and so on, their common feature is to attract the world capital and the Fortune 500 companies with the waterfront locations and the most core areas.
At present, there are already 14 domestic first-tier brand developers stationed in the core area of Tongzhou CBD, reaching its goal to create the most high-end business clusters. Among them, the top 500 companies including Hua Insurance, TianAn Property Insurance, and Bank of Beijing have signed the lease contract. And other financial firms including the four major banks are also negotiating with the major developers for the purchase intention. The world's ninth largest Bay Area CBD is shaping the future.
