    EXCLUSIVE: Iím proud to share my favorite construction photos yet - new, up-close photos from the construction site of Chimelongís new indoor marine park thatís across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. This 360,000 square meter complex, which is costing over half a billion US dollars to build, will be home to Chimelongís killer whales.









    The project's environmental impact report from June 2017 states a fourth quarter 2018 completion date. Despite construction progressing rapidly, expect the completion date to be pushed back to 2019 or potentially even 2020.

    Earlier this month China Construction Third Bureau First Engineering Co. Ltd. won the bid at the cost of 3.2 billion yuan for Chimelong Zhuhai's indoor marine park project. According to the construction company, the project's total construction area is ​​about 360,000 square meters and the height of the complex will be about 60 meters. Details about what this project will entail are minimal but according to the source the main show stadium (for the killer whale show) will have 5,000 seats. In comparison, Shamu Stadium at SeaWorld Orlando is 6000 seats. Also, the main aquarium tank will feature the world's largest acrylic glass panel which will be 46.2 meters wide and 8.2 metres high. Across the street at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, their record breaking whale shark aquarium's acrylic glass panel is 39.6 meters wide and 8.3 metres high.

    Two updates regarding long term expansion plans for the resort:

    1. Chimelong Group recently acquired a little over 100 acres (420,000 square meters) of land across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom for about 32 million US dollars. The land is right behind the new railway station being built. It looks like its the same land that Chimelong was going to use for an observation wheel, observation tower and wooden roller coaster (concept art for that is the thumbnail of this thread).

    2.
    According to the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) on Wednesday, China will prohibit business-oriented land reclamation activities and halt all reclamation projects that do not conform with relevant policies, launching the strictest-ever measures to control reclamation.

    The authority of local governments to approve land reclamation will also be abolished.

    This came after a special inspection into the matter by the SOA, which has found serious problems in the approval, monitoring and purposes of reclamation.
    This may affect Chimelong's plans for a new artificial island that would be formed through land reclamation just down the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom off the coast of Hengqin Island.
