Shenzhen International Airport, one of the fastest-growing airports in the world, sought to develop a ground transportation centre (“GTC”) and a unique airport city to enhance customer service and increase non-aeronautical revenue.
In close cooperation with NACO, our partner providing physical planning services to Shenzhen International Airport, InterVISTAS developed the retail strategy and revenue forecast for the GTC and an expansion strategy for the adjacent Airport City.
The first comprehensive airport city development in China, Shenzhen Bao’An International Airport is currently recovering land from the Pearl River Delta and is constructing the new terminal 3 with the proposed GTC. The GTC will provide 19,000 m2 of retail in 76 units. The Airport City will be developed in three phases. In its ultimate phase, it will include 130 ha of commercial space on 80 ha of land. The project will include a World Trade Centre and a five-star hotel. A risk and revenue sharing ownership structure and a marketing plan developed by InterVISTAS with the City of Shenzhen and other stakeholders proved to be a crucial element of the success of the project.
