Maybe you mean Lujiazui ? which is a small area as the home of the financial district, around the bend of the Huangpu where Suzhou creek confluence.

Pudong itself is well over 1000 sq km, of which Lujiazui is a tiny peninsula.

There are still a lot of empty plots around Lujiazui, including a piece of empty land just next to Jin Mao.

The plot next to Jin Mao is going to be a metro station exit surrounded by green area.

However there are plans to expand Lujiazui eastwards:

THE first wholly Taiwan-funded hospital on the mainland opened in Shanghai today. It is the first Taiwan-owned hospital to benefit from the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) signed by mainland and Taiwanese authorities in 2010.

Shanghai Landseed International Hospital was built with 150 million yuan (US$23.81 million) from Taipei-based Landseed International Medical Group. It will mainly serve people from Taiwan, foreigners and local Chinese who demand better health services, the hospital said.

Previously, the mainland government only allows foreign companies to set up joint venture hospitals.

After the signing of ECFA, Taiwanese investors are allowed to set up wholly-owned hospitals in Shanghai and in cities of Fujian, Jiangsu, Guangdong and Hainan provinces. A similar pact known as Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement or CEPA, signed by mainland, Hong Kong and Macau authorities allows Hong Kong and Macau investors to set up wholly owned hospitals in Shanghai, Chongqing and the provinces of Fujian, Guangdong and Hainan.

The Landseed Group has run the joint-venture Shanghai Chenxin Hospital since 2002.

Pudong Airport renovation to add more shop space
(Shanghai Daily, June 28)


Quote:
SHANGHAI Airport Authority told shareholders yesterday that Pudong International Airport Terminal 1 will undergo a major renovation this year to expand its retail space.

The board of the listed company agreed to invest 1.4 billion yuan (US$220 million) in the renovation project, said Jia Ruijun, vice president of Shanghai Airport Authority.

The project, slated to finish by 2014, will add 6,000 square meters of retail space to the terminal building.

Jia said it is part of their corporate strategy to "further develop non-aviation businesses," noting that revenue from the company's non-aviation businesses exceeded that from its aviation business last year.

The Pudong airport is also building its fourth and fifth runways to handle the increasing air traffic.

New terminal in Shanghai preserves urban waterfront for public use

The Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal, completed in 2010, is located beneath a new public park on a nearly one-kilometre long waterfront site in central Shanghai, near the historic Bund. Part of a larger effort to galvanise the redevelopment of the area adjacent to the Bund by extending a line of waterfront parks, it also was intended to rejuvenate the local cruise business by providing a highly convenient and welcoming facility for embarking and disembarking travelers.

The 64,000-sq-m terminal has three underground levels below a surface level deep enough to plant large groves of fully grown trees. The top level has vehicular drop offs and the main departure hall with immigration areas and moving sidewalks to small boarding pavilions at the surface. The second level below has baggage pickup and customs, and the third is for parking. It is able to serve three cruise ships of the 2,000-passenger class at a time, with expected eventual throughput of 1,000,000 passengers per year.

The light-filled departure area results from a design that entwines the underground with the surface and city skyline keeping them from being two unrelated experiences. This ‘surface tension’ is expressed by an undulating green surface that pulls away from the ground to become a bridge-like form combining the functions of a skylight, amphitheatre, gateway and a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional Chinese motif of a footbridge in a park.

The terminal is passively cooled by river water, in which it is fully immersed with a system of double walls at its perimeter, pre-cooling the circulating air. Connected to the terminal is a 260-ft-long glass observation bubble that floats on steel legs above the park, providing spectacular city views and an arena for public functions. One of the largest and most complex bubble structures ever built, it uses advanced environmental multilayered glazing with four sided panels whose geometry of constantly proportional conic sections assures optical flatness. Classed as a high rise building under the Shanghai Code, it has three interwoven levels folded within the shell like the interior of an oyster.

It's still very hard to understand for me why they decided to make Pudong into a suburban hellhole. Extremely outdated park city design. This used to be the bycicle centre of the world, it's going to cost a lot of money to retrofit the area to be more urban methinks.
