It gets clicked on enough - (although it gets 8x less clicks per post than say Toronto), it still gets more so per post than London - yet hardly any replies or visitor contributions. In short it's lots of visitors clicking on the thread, seeing only boring articles on local council policy, and leaving.

In short by rights, it should be the biggest thread on the forum.
Don't know why you are comparing post replies and participation against London, because many project details are available in the Chinese press and the respective forumers are over in the Chinese language fora. People should be grateful there are dedicated forumers to keep English content here active for the international community, and do contribute content yourself as well.

Renovation of ‘grey’ building on Bund to start soon
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
May 30, 2015



AN expert team will start work next month on the renovation of a century-old building in the Bund area that last month received an unwanted paint job.

“Specialists in the protection of historic buildings, as well as materials and chemistry experts will be invited to decide how best to remove the paint,” said Bian Weimin, director of the Huangpu District Housing Management Bureau.

The Huangpu government said it will punish Zhongjin Stock Investment Management Co, the tenant of No. 102 Guangdong Road, which authorized the painting of the building, and ask it to meet the cost of the renovation.

A representative of that company told Shanghai Daily yesterday it has hired Shanghai Construction Decoration Group to carry out the repair work.

“We deeply apologize and are willing to accept any punishment from the government,” the person said.

Bian said the work will take at least two months.

The former headquarters of Japanese firm Mitsubishi Co was built in 1914. In 1999 it was given protected status, which means its tenants must apply to the government for permission to undertake any renovation or decorative works.

Don't know, looks like a hotel. It's close to this building and others of an older style, so it will fit it's surroundings well.

Xupu Bridge work starts
Shanghai Daily
August 24, 2015

A YEAR-LONG overhaul of the 18-year-old Xupu Bridge across the Huangpu River has begun, reported the Shanghai Morning Post. Work is planned to take place at night, during which two or three of the eight lanes will be closed. This will ensure smooth daytime traffic flow over the busy bridge, which connects Xuhui District and Pudong New Area, it reported. The project aims to repair cracks and other damage, said officials. New technologies will also be introduced to decrease noise by 10 percent and dust by 90 percent, added project officials.

Sorry, wrong thread.
Anyway, I was talking about a possible new +250m tower or the construction of an already reported 380m Xujiahui Center:

Oblong tunnel digger goes down great
October 13, 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



A NEW type of tunnel boring machine (TBM) that produces rectangular structures yesterday completed its first major project in Shanghai.

The scheme, which involved the creation of a 28-meter-long access tunnel between two car parks located beneath Fuquan Road in the Hongqiao area of Changning District was completed in just 20 days, said Hang Yingwei, deputy president of Shanghai Construction Group, the company that built the machine.

The TBM was developed over a period of four years with the help of Tongji University, said Wu Xinzhi, the company’s deputy chief engineer.

Its next challenge will be to create a pedestrian tunnel linking the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Qingpu District and the Hongqiao Business Zone, Hang said.

The main advantage of the rectangular design — most TBMS are circular — is that it can be fitted with more cutting blades, which means it digs faster, Hang said.

It is also designed to be quieter than traditional TBMs and have less impact on the surrounding infrastructure, he said.

Rectangular tunnels also offer more space than round ones of a similar height, which adds to their appeal, Hang said.

Historic bridge restored ahead of schedule
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
October 19, 2015



THE 107-year-old Zhejiang Road Bridge, restored to its original appearance, was lifted back into position over Suzhou Creek yesterday in a 10-hour operation.

The bridge, removed from its foundations four and a half months ago for renovation, could reopen to traffic by late December after finishing touches to the road surface and the installation of lights and cameras.

The 420-ton bridge was moved out of a workshop about 100 meters from the creek to the riverbank on Saturday prior to yesterday’s final journey.

Despite some unexpected difficulties, the project was finished one month ahead of schedule.

“Many parts of the bridge proved to be in a worse condition than previously thought, so we put in more engineers and equipment to ensure that the bridge would be working again by the end of the year,” said project manager Qian Cheng of the Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute.

Despite having to replace and repaint rusted components, engineers managed to return the bridge to its original design based on files from the early 1900s.

“Basically we gave birth to the bridge again using contemporary technologies,” said Shang Guoping, vice director of the city road administration’s road construction division.

He said the rivets in the structure were retained although the use of rivets in steel construction has long given way to high- strength bolts and welding.

“While back then they had to use furnaces and hammers in riveting, we used electricity to heat up the rivets and electric appliances to drive them into the structure to make the process more reliable,” Shang said.

A few details in the look of the bridge were also corrected according to old pictures because maintenance on the bridge over the past few decades had erased some of its distinctive features, such as elegant arched structure at both ends of the bridge.

The bridge is now some 200 tons lighter with the removal, among other things, of heavy concrete trusses, and the structure is expected to have a working life of at least another 50 years.

Corporate Avenue Phase 3 / Xintiandi Phase 2 / Magnolia Mansion - Shui On Centre
(I have found those 3 names for this project).
Height: Aprox. 305m. to roof, 350m. to spire
Floor count: 68


SSC thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=659326
Gaoloumi thread: http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...extra=page%3D1

SSC thread was closed 2 years ago, and I have done some research on this project, but I think it's not time yet to reopen the thread until there's some evidence that the project is going ahead.

What I have found is:

- Previous phase has just been completed recently.

- by looking in google earth, demolitions started on the plot in mid-2014 until July 2015, but I haven't found any update since that date.

- Also, there's this news from July 2015
http://www.mingtiandi.com/real-estat...for-rmb-3-57b/

Quote:
SHUI ON SAID SELLING CORPORATE AVENUE PHASE 3 FOR RMB 3.57 BIL.
(...)
The buyers are said to be seeking a $509 million syndicated loan for the project, which has only been cleared for construction, without substantial work having been done on the site to this point. Real estate brokers contacted by Mingtiandi regarding the project said that they did not yet have a slated completion date for Corporate Avenue phase 3, and that leasing of the project was “not yet on their radar.”
(...)
So I think the project is not going to start by now, but it's not dead.
The construction board has been there since 2013.
