The news that some business units of Xiaomi Group will be relocated to Wuhan and Nanjing has received a lot of attention in recent days. However, few people have noticed that the size of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park, which can accommodate all the employees of Xiaomi, has been built on the date of “jumping”.
The Science and Technology Park is positioned as the new headquarters of Xiaomi in Beijing, covering an area of 210,000 square meters, also known as the Xiaomi Mobile Internet Industrial Park. The previous news has been mentioned in this year.
On the afternoon of October 20th, the reporter of "Daily Economic News" came to Xiaomi Science and Technology Park in the upper part of Haidian District, Beijing, but found that the construction wall of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park is still there, there are a lot of building materials inside, and construction workers are doing indoor operations. It is still far from the conditions for entering the office. A construction worker told reporters that construction will be completed next year.
For the possible reasons for the delay in the Xiaomi Science and Technology Park, a staff member of Xiaomi said: “Listen to the company and pay attention to it, and then design it well, so it will be postponed until next year. & rdquo; That is to say, as a project with an investment of more than 2 billion yuan, is it delayed due to design problems?

“Millet has been in Beijing for 5 years, like & lsquo;North drift & rsquo;, first is the Silver Valley Building, followed by the Rolling Stone Building, Hongyuan Building, then moved to the colorful city building, and rented 4 buildings around the colorful city. Move almost once a year! In Beijing, there will be a home of your own! Xiaomi Science and Technology Park, 8 buildings, 210,000 square meters (square meters), just in Haidian Shangdi … … & rdquo; July 23, 2015, Xiaomi founder Lei Jun was so emotional on Weibo.
On the day before this microblog was issued, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park officially laid the foundation. According to the plan, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park can accommodate 1 to 20,000 people to settle in, located on the west side of Xisanqi Bridge, next to Beijing Shangdi, close to Baidu, Lenovo and other industrial parks. Recently, the reporter of "Daily Economic News" observed on the scene that the 8 office units of Xiaomi's new headquarters are divided into 3 buildings, namely, A, B, and C buildings, forming a "second, third, third" arrangement. There are air connections between the bodies.
According to public information, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park A is the R&D office building of Xiaomi Technology Co., Ltd., B Building is the R&D office building of Beijing Multi-Looking Technology Co., Ltd., and C Building is the R&D office building of Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software Co., Ltd. After the completion of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park, Xiaomi Headquarters, Jinshan Headquarters, and “Millet Incubation Innovation Enterprise” will enter.
The data shows that Xiaomi currently has nearly 15,000 employees, distributed in Beijing, Wuhan, Nanjing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and other places. Previously, Beijing has been the headquarters of Xiaomi, and Wuhan will build the second headquarters of Xiaomi. As the business continues to expand, Xiaomi needs more manpower and more office space.
According to Xiaomi's disclosure, Xiaomi's construction projects mainly include the Xiaomi Mobile Internet Industrial Park project (ie Xiaomi Science and Technology Park), Xiaomi Electronic Internet Industrial Park Project, and Guangdong Xiaomi Internet Industrial Park Project.
In addition to Xiaomi Science and Technology Park, the Xiaomi Electronic Internet Industrial Park project is located in the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone, and its main functions are located in software and hardware R&D. The construction site of Guangdong Xiaomi Internet Industrial Park is located in Haizhu District of Guangzhou, and its main function is located in the R&D office in South China.

Investing 2 billion: the reason for the quiet extension is unknown
Xiaomi mentioned in the financial report that with the advancement of the above-mentioned project construction, the amount of construction in progress will increase gradually. In 2015, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park entered the pre-construction stage, with an annual investment of 56.6 million yuan. As of the end of 2016, Xiaomi's investment in the new headquarters has increased to 600 million yuan; as of March 31, 2018, it has invested 1.2 billion yuan in Xiaomi Science and Technology Park. According to the contents published by the China Architecture Journal, the total contract value of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park is about 2 billion yuan.
According to the news released by the Beijing Municipal Construction and Construction Committee in August 2017, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park has completed the capping of the main project in July, secondary structure and electromechanical installation, and completed the total project volume by 58%. As of October of this year, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park has completed 65% of the total project.
According to the above project progress, it is not a problem for Xiaomi employees to formally enter the new campus this year. In addition, according to the news released by Beijing Haidian at the end of last year, by May 2018, the Xiaomi Science and Technology Park project will be completed and accepted. The Xiaomi App Store also mentioned that it is said that it moved into the Xiaomi Science and Technology Park in September this year. Tongchuang Jintai also mentioned in the winning bid that Xiaomi's new headquarters will be completed in October.
Now that 2/3 has passed in October, Xiaomi employees have not moved into the new office as scheduled. The reporter of "Daily Economic News" observed at the construction site of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park that the road signs around Xiaomi Science and Technology Park have not yet been named. The glass buildings have been completed in the 8 buildings of Xiaomi Science and Technology Park. The internal passages are filled with a large amount of building materials, and some of them are laid with steel frame structures. In one building, the inner wall is still cement and several workers are still working.
Judging from the situation on the spot, Xiaomi Science and Technology Park is far from meeting the conditions for entering the office. A construction worker told reporters that he has been working here for more than two years and probably needs to be completed next year.
Xiaomi public relations staff also told reporters that it is really necessary to wait until next year. A Xiaomi employee revealed to the reporter of "Daily Economic News": "It was originally planned to move in October this year. Later, I heard the company say that we should pay attention to it, and then design it well, so it will be postponed until next year, probably next year. This time is enabled. ”
