Developers face penalty for hoarding plots
Shanghai Daily
Jun 8, 2012

REAL estate developers are to be charged a 20 percent fee if they hoard land plots and leave them idle for more than a year but less than two years while plots left untouched for more than two years will be reclaimed by the government, the Ministry of Land and Resources said yesterday.

The move, announced on the ministry's website, is its latest effort to ease a nationwide shortage of land. Effective from July 1, the fee, based on the price paid for the land, will be levied across the country.

An earlier document had said that developers "might" be charged a maximum of 20 percent and their land "might" be taken by the government.

"The different wording used by the ministry indicates that the central government has become more determined to crack down on the problem of land hoarding around the country which has been cited as one of the major reasons for surging property prices," said Song Huiyong, research director at Shanghai Centaline Property Consultants Ltd.

"The timing to impose such rules also seems to be good as the country's land market has been rather quiet in the first five months of this year as rein-in measures to curb housing speculation has dampened both developers' interest in land acquisition as well as local governments' willingness to release parcels due to sluggish sentiment."

Plots that have been left idle due to problems involving the government should be dealt with as quickly as possible in an appropriate manner such as changing their designated purpose, bartering, assigning temporary use for them or retaining them for government reserves, the ministry said.

A document released by the ministry earlier showed that plots involving 918 projects with a total area of 58.93 million square meters have been found idle in 43 Chinese cities, the National Business Daily reported last month.

Is L 'Officiel officially open?

You can't blame the architect of the project for that design. It's Louis Vuitton Group (LVMH) and Stanley Ho's choice...

I have to answer the same question once again.

It's in Hongqiao Business Zone/虹桥商务区, Changning District/长宁区, West Shanghai.

Electric car charging sites start to spring up
Shanghai Daily
Jun 9, 2012

THE government has started building charging stations along major expressways in Shanghai and neighboring provinces to encourage the use of pollution-free electric vehicles.

The lack of a more complete battery-charging network for the public is a big barrier hampering development of electric cars and buses, according to the transport authorities.

The local government said it's planned that by end of 2015, 11 battery charging stations will be completed and put into service on six major provincial expressways in Shanghai and neighboring Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces.

The city's traffic authorities said two facilities have been completed along the local section of the Shanghai-Kunming G60 Expressway and are ready for trial operation after connection to the national power grid.

Highway management officials said a single charger is capable of servicing about 50 electric cars a day. The fee to be charged has not been announced, however.

China plans to offer more financial support to the electric-powered vehicle industry and build charging facilities quickly, according to a new industrial outline released by national authorities in April.

Under a blueprint on energy efficiency and new-energy vehicles approved in a State Council meeting chaired by Premier Wen Jiabao, China is aiming for cumulative sales of 500,000 electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids by 2015, further lifting the goal to 5 million units by 2020.

China has set the use of electric vehicles as key strategy for its automotive industry and is urging enhanced research and development to build itself into the world's leading producer of green cars, batteries and primary spare parts.

New CBD for Shanghai

Benoy has won an international urban design competition for the Lujiazui Pudong Qiantan ES4 Precinct Core Area, located in the south of Shanghai. The client, Lujiazui Group, have been responsible for the development and implementation of Shanghai’s Pudong Central Business District since the 1990s.

Given Shanghai’s rapid urbanisation, the strategically positioned Qiantan ES4 Precinct will be the third central business district of Shanghai. The location will serve as a major public transport interchange and a waterfront entertainment destination.

Diversity will be the key to the Qiantan’s long term appeal. The well-designed mixed-use community will attract residents, workers, regional visitors, retailers and tourists, ensuring the economic stability of Qiantan Precinct.

Qin Pang, Project Designer at Benoy, notes: "This iconic development will form an affluent multi-layered and well-connected city. The project is expected to attract RMB100bn in future investment to the area, which encompasses the North-South axis along Hungpu River and the East-West axis along Middle Ring Road."

The masterplan design successfully integrates a mix of commercial, residential, cultural, and recreational uses. The 34 hectare core area will comprise over 1.8 million sq m of mixed-use development including: 600,000 sq m of retail and entertainment; 900,000 sq m of office and hotel facilities; residential developments covering 300,000 sq m; a tall tower measuring 300m in height.

Ian Hau, Urban Designer at Benoy, explains: “The Benoy Masterplan put forward a vision to create Shanghai’s premier business address, residential community, transportation nexus and lifestyle destination for Shanghai - a precinct that will be unique in its quality and sense of place.

“The concept incorporates an Urban Design framework for infrastructure, planning and design that will deliver an attractive place for workers, residents, and tourists. The masterplan is intended to inform the large-scale urban, economic and real estate decisions, which will be made in the coming months.”

You are kidding me, they are actually building this on one of the islands in the middle of the mouth of Yantze where it empties into the East China Sea?

WEST Bank Media Park, a project incorporating a Chinese cartoon studio, cinema and theater, is to open in the west bank of the Huangpu River in Shanghai by 2015.

The West Bank project, formally known as the Oriental DreamWorks project, will occupy a nine-block area in the city's Xuhui District.

The cartoon studio is a joint investment by DreamWorks and stated-owned media firms.

The project will also involve local culture organizations such as Shanghai Film Group Corp, Shanghai Drama Art Center, Shanghai Conservation of Music and restaurants and bars, said Chen Chengquan, director of the Culture Bureau of Xuhui District, according to Xinhua news agency yesterday.

"It will become the city's new landmark of media and culture and a new growth engine for Shanghai's economy development," Chen said.

The bureau declined to reveal details of the project's timetable or the level of investment.

The project is an expansion of a DreamWorks investment project announced in February.

US company DreamWorks said it was to build the studio in a project called Oriental DreamWorks, a joint venture with China Media Capital and Shanghai Media Group and Shanghai Alliance Investment, an investment arm of the Shanghai government. With an initial investment of US$330 million, the studio would develop original Chinese animated and live-action movies, TV shows and other entertainment.

No its located very close to the old World Expo site, next to the Huangpu river. The stadiums are already built, they used it for last years Swimming world cup.

The whole plan doesn't look like a CBD to me, more like another boring shopping mall with some office towers. Why don't they concentrate on the existing CBD's? Lujiazui could use some more towers and especially lowrise buildings.

Oh I see, my mistake;

I thought this is the same "Qiantan" as the one on Hengsha island, as I remember from my time in Shanghai. But I guess it's a completely different area than I'm thinking of. So I guess it's around the second bend of the river upstream from Lujiazui, still quite some distance (at least further than Xujiahui), but not nearly as suburban as I though it would be.

City will get museum of film by year-end
(Shanghai Daily, June 20)


Quote:
SHANGHAI is to have its own film museum by the end of this year, officials said yesterday at the 15th Shanghai International Film Festival.

Shen Yun, granddaughter of famous Chinese playwright and screenwriter Xia Yan, donated Xia's books, scripts and letters to the Shanghai Film Museum. Xia was the pseudonym of Shen Naixi.

Celebrated Chinese film director Wu Yigong donated the prize certificate of his film "My Memories of Old Beijing," which won the Best Feature Film award at the Manila International Film Festival in 1983.

"Shanghai, the cradle of Chinese film, has made great contributions to the domestic film industry," said Ren Zhonglun, president of Shanghai Film Group Corporation. "It has been a dream of several generations of local filmmakers to build a film museum in the city."

The museum is located at the original site of Shanghai Film Group Corp in the Xujiahui area and will open to public by year's end. It will feature exhibition halls covering 10,000 square meters, a 4D-theater that combines 3D film with synchronized effects and film studios that offer visitors simulated experiences of being a film director, an actor or a cameraman.
