Dispute delays Bund building
The Standard
Monday, December 03, 2012

Construction at a 10 billion yuan (HK$12.44 billion) site on Shanghai's Bund is likely to be delayed as two prominent developers - Fosun International (0656) and SOHO China (0410) - fight for control.

Fosun filed a lawsuit in May against SOHO China and two other firms - Shanghai Zendai Property (0755) and Greentown China Holdings (3900). The three parties were alleged to have violated Fosun's pre-emptive acquisition rights of the Bund plot.

The first hearing of the case was held on Thursday in Shanghai.

Following the hearing, Fosun's chairman Guo Guangchang told mainland daily The Economic Observer that SOHO China chairman Pan Shiyi had offered 500 million yuan compensation to his firm.

Writing in his blog yesterday, Pan denied such an offer was ever made. "Fosun, as the first investor [on the plot], has no money to fund the acquisition of the remaining 50 percent," Pan said.

Fosun owns 50 percent of the plot and the rest is held by SOHO, which bought the rights from Zendai and Greentown.

"We have spent a lot of resources in the plot. Why did he [Pan] insist on grabbing the controlling right?" Guo said.

Both firms are seen as being reluctant to share the site.

Guo said Pan had earlier proposed that two identical towers be built on the site so that each firm could be responsible for one of the structures.

But Guo had objected to the idea as he thought such a plan was unlikely to be approved by Shanghai authorities.

Soho China loses lawsuit over premium Shanghai land

SHANGHAI, April 24 (Xinhua) -- Beijing-based commercial property developer Soho China Ltd. on Wednesday lost a lawsuit over a premium piece of land in Shanghai's Bund in one of the country's most eye-catching legal battles in the real estate sector.

In the first-instance ruling, the Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People's Court nullified a previous stake transfer agreement between Soho China and Greentown China Holdings Ltd. and Shanghai Zendai Property Ltd. in December 2011 that gave Soho a 50-percent stake in a land project in Shanghai.

The units of the Shanghai-based property giant Fosun Group that filed the lawsuit own another 50 percent of the land project, which was sold for 9.22 billion yuan (1.48 billion U.S. dollars) by the Shanghai municipal government during an auction in February 2010.

Soho bought a 50-percent stake in the land project from units of Fosun's former partners Greentown China and Shanghai Zendai for 4 billion yuan.

The site in dispute covers 45,472 square meters in an area that houses multinationals in Shanghai with a designated construction area of 422,825 square meters for shops, hotels and offices purposes.

The court ruled that the agreement had deprived Fosun of a first right of refusal to buy the remaining stake of the joint venture for the development of the land.

Soho, Greentown China and Shanghai Zendai said in a joint statement that they are "deeply disappointed and regretful" toward the verdict and vowed to launch an appeal to the Shanghai Higher People's Court.

All the involved companies are listed in Hong Kong. The share price of Fosun rose 4.5 percent to 5.34 HK dollars on Wednesday, Soho China dipped 0.44 percent to 6.73 HK dollars, Greentown China added 2.16 percent to 15.14 HK dollars while Shanghai Zendai remained unchanged at 0.15 HK dollars.

No, still below ground. It's awfully slow compared to other projects in the city.

I'm all for a mix of architectural styles, but this project is far too imposing when compared to the old Bund buildings. It's funny how they look like the bookshelf buildings John Portman designed in the 60s in Atlanta and San Francisco, while he later designed the Bund Center (the "Pineapple" building") and Tomorrow Square.

It probably won't be as imposing as in the render. There was some protesting/complaining about its height (compared to the historical buildings next to it), so they reduced the height.

Wow, these projects go really fast. Good to see that these empty areas will be filled up soon. South Bund could become a great area.

^ True. The Shanghai Bund International Financial Centre project is at least as important for this area. Hopefully the commercial area's wont only contain Gucci, Prada and Armani, there are enough of these empty commercial area's in town already.
