Pearl River Garden
Height: 250 + 200


The only source I've found is Gaoloumi: http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.php?tid=922548

There's very little info about this project, it might have been around since years ago, but I'll leave it here just to have a record here in ssc.
In Gaoloumi they say it's on demolition stage, but there are no pictures yet and in google earth you can see the plot is yet untouched as July-2015, with a lot of short old buildings and streets on it.
So for me, there's no evidence yet that this project could go ahead shortly, but I'll keep an eye on it.

Poly SRE Albany garden five
Height: 240m
Floor count: 54

This project has been around since 2005 or so, but with a different design and height, lately the thread in Gaoloumi has been active (http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...age%3D1&page=1), however, there are no sources anywhere else, but these renders haven't been seen in ssc, so, in case there are any news, I post this tower here.
Looking at google earth, the plot in July 2015 is yet untouched with old buildings and streets staying there, I don't know if they are inhabited or empty.
In Gaoloumi they say it's 220 metres tall, but since elevations have a graphic scale, I've been able to calculate the correct height scaling it in Autocad, wich is exactly 240 metres.
The source for the new renders:

Old design:


The plot:


New design (it has spires only in one render):

"White tower"
Height: 210 ~ 260 metres
Floor Count: 40 ~ 60

I couldn't resist. There's a thread about this tower in Gaoloumi, and 2 or 3 webpages with information and a link to the project in the (spanish) architect's web, but it's been removed, there are also 2 or 3 very popular architecture webs, like archilovers, that have an article removed about this tower, so I e-mailed the architect office asking for the status of the project, and they answered the contract with the client doesn't allow them to publish any information, so they have asked all those webpages to remove the project, and I'm going to respect their will, so I won't publish any information nor links, but it's a very nice tower, with no courtain wall!, there's no sight of works in the plot yet, the first publications about this tower are from february 2015. This is the area where it will be built if we're lucky (it's not Xintiandi):

Fruit market to relocate in sanitation drive
October 21, 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



SHANGHAI’S largest fruit market which will be shut down at the end of the month has drawn a mixed response from both traders and residents.

Shanhua Fruit Wholesale Market on Caoyang Road will pull down the shutters for good after 18 long years as the Putuo District government tries to clean up the area. More than half of the over 500 fruit sellers will move to Huajin Market of Agricultural Products in Qingpu District, while the rest plan to move to the state-owned Xijiao International, the Shanhua Fruit Market Business Management Co told Shanghai Daily yesterday.

For now, the fruit sellers are offering discounts as they try to unload all their stuff before shifting to a new place.

A man surnamed Zhang said he and his wife have been visiting the market ever since it opened. They were there early yesterday too to buy two boxes of pomelos.

“The pomelos sell for 3.3 yuan (US$0.5) per kilogram elsewhere but here we get it for 2.5 yuan,” Zhang, who lives just 4 kilometers away from the market, said. “We will definitely miss the market because we were paying bargain prices for good quality fruits.”

But others in the vicinity have welcomed the decision to close down the market, saying it was dirty and stinking all the time.

“The pavement near the Shanhua market is always sticky and crates of rotten fruits stink during summer,” said a woman living nearby.

The Shanhua Fruit Market Business Management Co, which runs the market, said over 30 percent of the city’s fruit business was done here. The market itself stretched 40,000 square meters, while its annual trading volume was close to 3 billion yuan. Most vendors said relocating far away from the city center might affect sales initially.

“Some of my customers who come on electric bicycles to buy fruits here might not come so far,” said a fruit seller surnamed Wang, who said he was moving to Xijiao International.

Other sellers said the new location was ideal for large buyers who came in cars.

“Most of the sellers at our market have regular customers from restaurants, hypermarkets, canteens, companies and fruit stands,” said Gui Weijun, manager at the Shanhua company.

Britain's Merlin to open Legoland in Shanghai as part of China growth plans
Excerpt



Oct 21 (Reuters) - A branch of the Legoland amusement park is to open in Shanghai under a likely $300 million joint venture investment by Britain's Merlin Entertainments Plc, announced during the state visit to Britain of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Under a deal agreed with investment firm China Media Capital (CMC), Merlin, the world's second-biggest visitor attractions group behind Walt Disney Co, plans to open a Legoland branch in the Shanghai area, as well as additional brands throughout China.

Legoland is aimed at younger children and features rides as well as models of landmarks from around the world, made of millions of the Lego bricks whose popularity as toys has been recently boosted by the success of the Lego Movie.

Merlin Chief Executive Nick Varney told Reuters the Legoland park in Shanghai would be a similarly sized investment to the $300 million parks it is building in Japan, Korea and Dubai.

Shanghai vows to rein in booming property market amid evidence workers are put off from working there
26 October 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt



In a surprise move to improve Shanghai's competiveness, the mainland's most developed city has rolled out a controversial policy - reining in a real estate boom it blames for deterring foreign investment.

City officials say they are serious about capping property price growth despite speculation national austerity measures will be eased to spur the sector amid the economic slowdown.

"We must be fully aware of the task of controlling the property market and stand firm against a property bubble. We can't blindly follow others' steps in making real estate policies," Shanghai Communist Party boss Han Zheng told a government conference.

"If we fail to control the property market, the whole city's competitiveness will be dented," he added.

Shanghai officials believe high property prices have become a stumbling block to its rise as an international metropolis because expensive flats - 5 million yuan (HK$6.1 million) for a two-bedroom home in the city centre is not unusual - are deterring workers from living there.

Han's remarks sparked fears the city would veer off the road to recovery as real estate has long been its economic backbone.

Rising home prices have also boosted residents' personal net worth.

Developers and analysts believe Shanghai will use administrative measures to help developers reduce costs for homebuyers, charge higher taxes to owners selling properties to reduce the number of transactions, and order developers to build fewer high-cost homes.

Falling overseas and domestic demand and Shanghai's efforts to eschew big infrastructure projects while transforming itself into a global financial and shipping centre have dragged on the city's growth in recent years, harming its status as the mainland's economic engine.

Han did not elaborate on what measures the city would take to curb property prices.

But analysts doubted any such policies would succeed, pointing out that Hong Kong remained the world's most expensive city for homes, despite government efforts to curb prices.

According to Tospur Real Estate Consultancy, home prices in Shanghai jumped 18.2 per cent to 31,337 yuan per square metre in the first nine months of this year. More than 10 million square metres of housing changed hands in the same period, a jump of 64 per cent year on year.

A high-end flat in a prime location can fetch more than 100,000 yuan per square metre - more than an average wage earner's yearly income.

"It has to be a structural adjustment rather than a heavy-handed crackdown," said Joe Zhou, head of research in Shanghai for global property consultancy JLL.

"An ideal way of controlling the market is to increase the land supply to allow more affordable housing for needy residents, which could dent the overall elevated housing prices in the city."

Shanghai to have 300km of bus-only lanes
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
October 27, 2015



SHANGHAI will have over 300 kilometers of bus-only lanes across the city by the end of this year to improve the efficiency of public transportation.

Some 140 kilometers of new lanes will be marked by the end of the year for use by public buses during rush hours between 7am and 9am and 4pm and 7pm. The city already has some 160 kilometers of bus-only lanes now.

Another 200 kilometers of bus lanes are being worked out, Sun Jianping, the head of the city’s transportation commission told the city’s legislative body.

Many of the new bus-only lanes will come up in new townships in the far-off districts, Sun said.

“We are trying to control the utilization of private vehicle and spare the resources for public buses,” Sun said. The bus lanes will be off-limits to other vehicles during morning and afternoon rush hours to ensure smooth and efficient operation of the bus services.

‘Greenway’ developers put safety first
November 10, 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt

PEOPLE’S safety and security will be a top priority for the developers of a new orbital “greenway,” which is slated to open in 2020.

The project, which will comprise more than 110 kilometers of cycle paths, jogging lanes and walkways, is being managed by the Shanghai Greenbelt Construction Management Office, which is linked to the city’s greenery bureau.

Li Wei, an official from the office, said that as well as being a place for people to jog, ride their bikes or just enjoy the surroundings, it is essential that the entire route is safe for people of all ages to use at all times of the day.

“Lights will be installed on both sides of the greenway for people running or riding their bikes at night, and any potential hazards, such as water crossings and ramps, will be well signposted,” he said.

The pathway, which will approximately follow the route of the Outer Ring Road, will also feature surveillance cameras and be patroled by security guards in a bid to deter any “uncivilized behavior,” Li said.

Initial plan for Jiading tramway is mapped out
27 October 2015
Shanghai Daily



An initial tramway plan for Jiading has been mapped out, according to district government officials. A tramway line is going to start at the Jiading New City Station of Shanghai Metro Line 11, and go past Huyi Highway, Huancheng Road, Chengbei Road, and cover Jiading New Town and Old Town, Juyuan New Area as well as other areas, and will connect with Metro Line 1 in Taicang, Jiangsu.The total length of the tramway line will be about 24 kilometers and it will alleviate the pressure of public transport in Jiading’s east urban area.The district government is going to submit the plan for feasibility study and further examination, and begin early-stage preparations for the project.Compared to subway and light rail, the tramway has the advantages of lower energy consumption and lower emission, and it is quicker and cheaper to build.

The cost of building just one subway line would be enough to finance the construction of at least four tramway lines of the same length, and the construction process is said to only take one third of the time compared to the subway.

Estimated height: ~230m + ~170 + ~150
Estimated floor count: ~58 + ~42 + ~34

Again, very little information, the plot has been partially cleared since years ago but there are no construction works. I don't expect to see this under construction in a short time.

Green | 99 neighborhood Luwan Complex

This consist of 4 towers of around 22-24 floors and around 120 metres tall, and 2 side shorter residential buildings.
The 2 shorter buldings are under construction, and there are some works in the rest of the plot, so maybe the towers may start construction soon, I hope the design hasn't changed.

Front Beach World Trade Center looks great! It is one of the few highrise projects in China to properly occupy their site and meet the street. Great job on the podium by breaking down the scale.

District unveils major renovation plan
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
November 19, 2015


Yuyuan Garden at night by Mathias Apitz (München), on Flickr

SOME 70,000 residents of downtown Huangpu District can expect a better life as the district government plans to invest heavily in renovating or demolishing old residential buildings over the next five years, the district’s top official announced yesterday.

The district will spend 115 billion yuan (US$18 billion) to demolish or renovate old residential buildings and relocate some residents from next year through 2020, said Weng Zuliang, the district Party chief.

Some 300,000 square meters of old residential buildings in downtown areas will be torn down while about 26,000 residents will be relocated to new buildings, he revealed.

For those old houses that are in better condition, the government will renovate the sanitary and water supply systems to benefit about 50,000 residents, he said.

Huangpu District has the largest number of old residential buildings in downtown covering over 2.5 million square meters.

The first batch of residential sector to be renovated includes the Yuyuan Garden and Taipingqiao areas.
