Invitation Letter of Collecting Design Plans for
Nanjing International Exposition Center (NIEC)
The new town of HEXI lies in the west of the city of Nanjing, on the west of the Yangtse River. The occupied area of this land is 56 km2. The development objective for the New Town is to become a representative district of Nanjing in 5 to 10 years, characterized by modern civilization and riverside attractiveness. The development of the New Town will be instrumental to relocating the growing population in the ancient city so that the ancient city can be better preserved and properly renovated. The World City Forum, expected to be held in the New Town in 2008, will be a good opportunity to speed up the development in the New Town, particularly the core area.
In order to boost the local economy and make the central area develop to its full potential, the Hexi New Town has been chosen by the Nanjing Municipal Government to be the site for the building of NIEC to pursue the goal of making full use of resources in the area and framing up a well-developed modern new urban area.
NIEC will be situated in the central area of the New Town, very close to the Town’s main avenues like Jiangdong Road, nestling with other buildings in what we call the Town’s multi-functional service zone. Based on the Feasibility Research Report, it is estimated that NIEC will have a construction area of 280,000 M2, in which 230,000 M2 will be allocated for international exposition hall and the rest for international conference center. The total investment amount will be as high as 2.5 billion RMB. It is planned to be a first-class multi-functional exposition facility, which can be divided into different functional zones for different purposes such as exhibition, conference, business, information exchange, restaurant, entertainment, office, and tourism. The first phase of the NIEC construction plan primarily centers on an exhibition hall of 148,000M2, covered by a budget of 1.2 billion RMB. The first phase also includes a conference center hotel built for the 2008 World City Forum and a number of supplementary commercial facilities. It is planned that the construction will begin in June 2006 and be put into operation in 2008.
According to the decisions made by the municipal government, Nanjing Hexi New Town State-owned Assets Management (Holdings) Co., Ltd is responsible for the building of NIEC. Aiming at obtaining high-quality design plans and achieving satisfactory results, we will carry out the online collection of design plans in a fair and transparent way.
