Adjacent to Yongtai exit of South China expressway and backed by Jiahe Wanggang transfer station, the Jiahe lianbian affordable housing project under construction is still under orderly construction. At present, 6 public rental houses and 2 jointly owned houses have entered the capping and decoration stage. In the future, Jiahe lianbian affordable housing, covering an area of 43000 square meters, can supply 2800 sets of housing, all for new citizens and youth groups struggling in Guangzhou.
In July this year, the general office of the State Council issued the opinions on accelerating the development of indemnificatory rental housing (hereinafter referred to as the opinions), requiring all provinces and cities to accelerate the development of indemnificatory rental housing and gradually improve the housing security system dominated by public rental housing, indemnificatory rental housing and common property housing in order to solve the housing difficulties of new citizens, young people and other groups in big cities.
As a super large city, the current resident population in Guangzhou is 18 million 680 thousand, of which 9 million of the non registered residence population accounts for nearly half of the city. Especially in the past decade, Guangzhou has increased its population by about 6.98 million, with a growth rate of 47.05%. Solving the housing problem of new citizens and young groups is also a sustainable development problem in front of the city.
Recently, Guangzhou announced the affordable housing supply plan during the 14th Five Year Plan period, in which it is expected to raise 600000 sets (rooms) of affordable rental housing. In addition, with the last batch of affordable housing sold in the city, the first batch of Municipal Common Property houses represented by Rongyue garden are also accelerating the supply.
Jiahe lianbian affordable housing project under construction.
This year, we will raise at least 170000 sets (rooms) of affordable rental housing
Walking into the buildings that have not yet completed the capping, we can see that each suite of Jiahe lianbian security room has a square and regular house type. Most of the rooms have been preliminarily decorated. Most of them are small houses of 70-90 square meters, which are more suitable for new citizens and graduates who have just settled in big cities. The project mainly provides affordable rental housing, accounting for 85.7% of the total supply, and the rest are 400 sets of jointly owned houses.
“In the future, a kindergarten and a series of public commercial places will be built here.” The person in charge of Jiahe lianbian affordable housing project of Guangzhou Zhujiang Housing leasing development Investment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Zhujiang leasing”) said that on the principle of ensuring convenient transportation, complete supporting facilities and meeting the balance of work and housing as far as possible, there is no difference between affordable rental housing in Guangzhou and other commercial housing.
According to the spirit of the opinions, expanding the supply of affordable rental housing will highlight the people’s livelihood attribute of housing, effectively alleviate the lack of structural supply in the urban housing rental market, and promote the construction of new urbanization with people as the core.
As early as January 2020, Guangzhou has issued the pilot scheme for the development of policy rental housing in Guangzhou (hereinafter referred to as the scheme). As a city with net population inflow for many years, Guangzhou is the first batch of national pilot cities for the development of policy rental housing selected by the Ministry of housing and urban rural development《 The plan proposes that the city’s policy rental housing will be mainly distributed in areas with large demand and complete infrastructure and around rail transit stations, and the rent standard is 50% to 70% of the market rental housing rent standard in the same section, thus improving the dual track system of “marketization” and “policy” of Housing leasing.
In recent years, in addition to the supply of affordable rental housing, Guangzhou is also gradually exploring the management mechanism of affordable housing. At present, Guangzhou actively guides multi-party participation in the construction and operation of affordable housing. On the basis of the government’s policy support for land, finance, taxation and finance, give full play to the role of market mechanism and guide multi-body investment and multi-channel supply.
Through government enterprise cooperation, Guangzhou housing security office is responsible for formulating rent standard, income standard line and rent allocation sequence, while enterprises are responsible for the whole process construction and management business. In 2017, Zhujiang leasing and Guangzhou urban investment housing leasing development Investment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “urban investment leasing”) were established respectively. The two municipal large state-owned housing leasing companies are responsible for the investment, financing, construction and operation of affordable housing in the city through zoning management.
