Let me carry on.

First atrium's floor, and we are getting higher.



Columns.



Litter bins also fit much into the general style. I appreciated it much.



Renders showed this Atrium much wider, it turned out to be quite narrower.



Lifts are real masterpieces. Each atrium features lifts with a proper style, I'll show that later.





To be continued.

Let me keep on posting.

As we can see, the atrium is called SUNPLAZA.



Me with a car in there





Going out.



Let's get around a little.
That is the surround area. Look at the flyover.



The new metro line features its own entrance. This is not typical for Shanghai or for China's metro systems.



VW store & bike park.



Right aside goes a metro line. To be more exact, two lines: 3 & 4 that share the same tracks. On the picture you can see Alstom Metropolis of line 3.





Siemens of line 4.



Accessible elevator to the new station.



The twin towers are 240 m tall and they have not been topped out yet. I still don't believe they are that tall. However, everything in Shanghai is tall and big, so, maybe because of that I got such an impression.



Главный вход.



Let's go to its western part.







The double-deck road is the Inner ring road around the downtown.









To be continued.

the spires are very tall, which also make the building does not look too tall, just because it is not very tall to the roof to begin with.

Let's have a look at the towers from another side.





The billboard above Inner Elevated road shows busy parts of the road and its junctions.



This exit seems to be not very well done. I hope they will rebuild it.



A junction.



We are approaching another entrance to the Mall.



Car park entrance.







Yuexing mall is quite long, kind of 300-400 m along the Inner ring road.



Finally we are getting onto the square at the opposite main entrance.



Me again.



Samsung brand store was not open yet. The photo does not show its sheer size, I'll show it partly below. the store would be some 30 m long.



Very stylish dustbins.



Navigation screen.



This all would be Samsung brand store. I'd like to point out that Samsung is very popular in Shanghai. I remember one clamshell smartphone that is sold only in China, it costs over 16000 RMB.



Jewelry store.



The second atrium is called GARDEN COURT.





Its color scheme is totally different.



To be continued.

I am so glad we are getting a new mall here in Shanghai! Its about time! We just don't have enough places to buy LV, Bvlgari, Hermes and other necessities. I have been yearning for another place to feast on the delicious offerings of 大食代 and Happy Lemon, while shopping for hundered dollar polo shirts.

Happy lemon <3

While LV/Gucci stores are exploding in Shanghai, i want to see more from YSL, McQueen, Givenchy level.

Also fashion brands like MasterMind, Bape, I.T. and stores selling Euro brands (such as things from www.endclothing.co.uk) would be nice additions. Hong Kong has the Hoods Store and we need a similar one in Shanghai.

Let me carry on after such a long break (very short of time).



Looks like a fairy-tale from this point.













Going to Garden Avenue, to the South.



















Let's go and see the WC...



А вот так выглядят туалеты в ТЦ.



Your humble servant.





To be continued.

The interior is a bit a copy paste of the Venetian Hotel in Vegas/Macau, walking around I always wonder, where is the casino?

revolting pastiche interior! Around the UK we've spent the past 10 years trying to get rid of places like this. Literally vomit inducing.
