  预计高度可能达到580米的世界第一高楼———“上海中心”,有望在今年内开建。记者昨天从权威方面得到证实,“上海中心”的项目公司及筹备小组均已正式成立,预计今年上半年将有所动作。而根据上海国资委在其官方网站公布的最新信息称,“上海中心”的项目建议书已获得市发改委批复同意,并有望在今年内开工。

  根据上海国资委官方网站披露的资料,“上海中心”的项目公司已完成工商登记注册。去年,市委、市政府主要领导对该项目进行了专题调研,要求 “及早谋划、积极推进、抓紧实施,确保2008年年内实现开工目标”。会后,成立了“上海中心”项目筹备小组。项目公司由城投公司与陆家嘴股份公司、市建工集团合资成立,注册资本54亿元人民币。项目建成后,将与金茂大厦、环球金融中心等组成超高层建筑群,形成小陆家嘴中心区的新制高点。

  “上海中心”第一次为人们所熟知,是其设计图
出现在美国SOM公司的网站上。因其580米“世界第一高”的预计高度(注:金茂大厦总高度是420.5米,环球金融中心主体高度为491.3米),引起广泛关注。

  事实上,早在1993年的《上海陆家嘴中心区规划设计方案》中,就已确定金茂大厦、环球金融中心加上陆家嘴Z3-2地块,将建设3幢超高层的标志性建筑,形成“品”字形的三足鼎立之势。其中,Z3-2地块正是“上海中心”所在地。

  不过,有关人士表示,目前“上海中心”的设计方案并未最终确定,“设计方案不下10种,但迄今为止也没有选定哪一家的方案,是不是SOM的方案当然也没办法说。预计这个项目在今年上半年将会有实质性进展”。

i think it has many visual links to the other buildings. one is the fan facade which has many lines such as a tree's branches, which visually connect the tower to the other buildings. this seems sensible for a building larger than any others.

bearing in mind the gaping error in one of the past articles a forumer posted up here i don't give these journals any credibility now. find me CCTV or a big national media organisation that reports this, then i might believe this. until then, it sounds like a media frenzy sparked by rhumours.

sorry!

Ground zero ... for now
2008-2-17



Workers level the ground at the construction site for another skyscraper in Shanghai yesterday. Located in Lujiazui, Pudong, Shanghai Center is expected to dwarf the 421-meter-tall Jin Mao Tower and the 492-meter-tall Shanghai World Financial Center in its neighborhood. The project has already been approved by the city government, but the detailed plan has yet to be finalized. According to industrial insiders, the new building will be taller than 500 meters.

BEIJING, Feb. 17 -- Construction work on what will be the world's tallest building will start this year in Shanghai.

Media reports say the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission has ratified the project proposal for Shanghai Center which will be located in the city's Pudong district.

The 580-meter-tall edifice will have 118 stories. It will be 72 meters higher than the Taipei 101 Tower, currently the tallest building in Asia at 508 meters.

The Shanghai Center also will be 25 meters higher than the 555-meter-tall Burj Dubai skyscraper, which is still under construction.

A PROJECT to build the tallest building in Shanghai is likely to break ground within the year and be topped off in 2010, dwarfing both the 492-meter-tall Shanghai World Financial Center and the 421-meter-tall Jin Mao Tower.

The project has been endorsed by the city reform and development commission, according to a recent posting at the municipal government Website.

A project company with a registered capital of 5.4 billion yuan (US$752 million) was approved by the city industrial and commercial administration at the end of last year, an insider said.

Documents from the administration showed the company is 45 percent owned by the Shanghai Chengtou Corp, a municipal government-backed conglomerate investing in city-infrastructure construction; 51 percent owned by the Shanghai Stock Exchange-listed Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone Development Co Ltd; and four percent owned by the Shanghai Construction Group, one of the country's largest construction contractors.

The skyscraper will be constructed on a 20,300-square-meter plot of land known as Z3-2, which has been used as a golf practice course for the past decade.

The new skyscraper will stand to the south of Jin Mao Tower and to the west of Shanghai World Financial Center.

According to local media reports, the project company has yet to decide on the building's design. Only one thing is for sure: It will be higher than its two neighbors.

Two international architecture firms, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, have reportedly submitted designs for the project in a bidding process organized by the city government.

On SOM's Website, the project is named Shanghai Center. It says the tower will have a height of 580 meters - 88 meters higher than the Shanghai World Financial Center.

SOM's design was highly publicized by local media after the firm posted an artist's impression on its Website, but the insider said it had failed the preliminary selection process.

The project is still listed on SOM's Website, but the plans could no longer be found there yesterday.

Back in 2005, Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone Development Co put the land up for public bidding. Property giants including Hutchison Whampoa and Sun Hung Kai Properties were invited to build an office building, hotel or shopping facility on the plot. Months later, bidding was suddenly called off as Lujiazui announced that the government had adjusted its plans and would now reserve the land for other uses.
