Correct. It's new. It's called Shenzhen Wan/Bay, or also called the Western Crossing.

It's unique among the various borders that the HK and Chinese immigration are located in the same building. After you clear one, continue for about 50 yards and you'll go through the other. So, no long pedestrian bridge over the Shenzhen River like at Lowu and the new Futian crossing; and no need to get on/off the bus twice like at Huanggang.

This is one of the two new border crossings that opened in 2007. The other is the Futian crossing between the new East Rail Lok Ma Chau station on the Hong Kong side and the Huanggang subway on the Shenzhen side; which is not to be confused with the original bus crossing at Huanggang. Nomenclature over there is extremely confusing.
