Baishizhou (Chinese: 白石洲; pinyin: Báishízhōu; Jyutping: baak6 sek6 zau1) is an area of Nanshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. As of 2016[update] about 150,000 people live in Baishizhou. Its area is 0.23 square miles (0.60 km2) and has a population density higher than that of the city average.
It is an amalgamation of five existing villages that became one circa 1958 after a collective farm opened. The Shenzhen government bought land around, but not within, the villages and redeveloped it.
In 2014 the Shenzhen government announced that it was going to demolish existing developments and redevelop Baishizhou.
