Qingdao's Shinan district was included in the list of China's top 30 demonstration districts for the building economy (headquarters economy), according to a report released during the recently concluded 2022 China International Fair for Trade in Services in Beijing.
According to the China building economy development index, Qingdao Haitian Center, which is located in Shinan, won the honor of "China's new commerce and office landmark", making Shinan the only place in Shandong province to win both honorary titles.
Shinan is the first district in Qingdao to develop a building economy. The district has 135 office buildings, with each occupying more than 5,000 square meters of floor area, and 26 of which generate over 100 million yuan in annual taxation.
Shinan has gathered 154 regional headquarters, accounting for more than half of Qingdao's total.
The local government plans to further promote development of the high-quality building economy by renovating 10 old office buildings and two industrial parks, establishing 10 office buildings with industrial characteristics, and introducing professional management institutions to optimize the buildings' services.
