no it won't. PEK is better located for premium demand out of Beijing. PKX is built where it is because land around there hasn't gotten as expensive. Otherwise, it would be even further out from center of Beijing.

I guess it's more convenient for people in the south part of the city, but that's also a less wealthy part. It's not really convenient anyone in the north and east part of the city.
Definitely correct, the 3 major business centers currently in Beijing: Guomao, zhongguancun and jinrongjie are all in the north part. PKX will suffer in the recent years i guess. But actually the newly planned “sub center” and Xiongan new district are in the south part so in the long run PKX will benefit from that.
I mean that's definitely the goal of the central planners. But whether big businesses want to move there is a different story. At least the airport is close enough that you are not looking at another HND vs NRT situation.
