Joe and John Fisher operate two successful Clancy’s Pubs in Perth, Western Australia. In late 2010, an opportunity arose to take possession of an existing ten year old building on the beach front at City Beach, one of Perth’s most popular and pristine beaches. The building housed a former restaurant and was very ready for an upgrade.

The planned intensification of transport through the site renders inevitable its emergence as a new center. The question is not whether Qianhai will develop, but how? If successful, a new city center in Qianhai could fulfill Shenzhen’s coastal ambitions and establish a node for interaction between various components of the PRD.
