Baishizhou (Chinese: 白石洲; pinyin: Báishízhōu; Jyutping: baak6 sek6 zau1) is an area of Nanshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. As of 2016 about 150,000 people live in Baishizhou.[1] Its area is 0.23 square miles (0.60 km2) and has a population density higher than that of the city average.[2]

History[edit]

It is an amalgamation of five existing villages that became one circa 1958 after a collective farm opened.[2] The Shenzhen government bought land around, but not within, the villages and redeveloped it.[1]

In 2014 the Shenzhen government announced that it was going to demolish existing developments and redevelop Baishizhou.[1]
