But a lot of these old neighbourhoods are indeed slums with inadequate basic facilities. Tianzifang is probably an exception in terms of preservation rather than the norm.

Former container dock slated for redevelopment
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 11, 2015

THE Baoshan District government yesterday announced a 15 billion yuan (US$2.3 billion) plan to transform a former container dock on the banks of the Yangtze River into a residential area and tourist attraction.

Formerly operated by Shanghai International Port Group, Changtan dock was once a bustling center for maritime trade, but as with countless other sites like it around the world, it’s future is in housing and leisure.

Scheduled for completion in 2020, the revamped site, which spans about 1 square kilometer, will feature 4,200 apartments, three parks, assorted shopping malls, restaurants and coffee shops, hotels, kindergartens and an IMAX cinema, the government said in a statement on its WeChat account.

The commercial and hospitality projects are expected to create about 14,000 jobs, it said.

For day-trippers and tourists — the site is quite close to the Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal — there will be a 1.8 kilometer long promenade and a 180 meter high sightseeing tower offering views across the river to Chongming and Changxing islands, and the East China Sea.

A possible implication that a traditional neighborhood's preservation is "bad"?:

So if those old traditional neighborhoods were renovated and had good basic fixtures installed in the process, their preservation would be considered "bad" or "terrible". I'm thinking some (not all) of the Hutongs of Beijing must have been commercialized when they were renovated years ago.

RENOVATION on Yan’an Road E. Tunnel, one of the city’s busiest passages under the Huangpu River, will be complete by the end of this year, Shanghai Road Administration Bureau said yesterday.

Work on the northern section — Pudong to Puxi — started in February this year and finished in mid August, while the three-month work on the southern section of the tunnel — Puxi to Pudong — is set to be completed by mid-December, slightly ahead of schedule.

Vehicles from Pudong to Puxi will still be banned from using the tunnel by then as it would be closed to have its traffic signs changed. The tunnel will reopen to traffic by January.

Before renovation started in February, an estimated 90,000 vehicles per day traveled through it to get back and forth between Pudong and Puxi.
Yan’an tunnel to reopen after renovation
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
Dec. 16, 2015

THE Yan’an Road E. Tunnel will reopen to traffic from December 26 after a nine-month renovation project on one of the busiest passages under the Huangpu River.

This means that traffic from Pudong to Puxi, which has been blocked since February, will be open to drivers again.

The renovation work included upgrading the lighting and the ventilation system. A new fire alarm and sprinkle system have also been installed.

This was the first major overhaul of the tunnel after it was put in use in 1988.

The northern section of the tunnel will be temporarily closed for adjusting traffic signs. Vehicles from Puxi to Pudong passing through that section will be switched to the tunnel’s southern section from December 19.

City's 'Big World' stage entertainment landmark set to reopen next year after decade-long closure
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 17, 2015



SHANGHAI’S once most popular stage entertainment landmark, the Shanghai Dashijie, in Huangpu District will be reopened late next year to continue to display the city’s cultural heritages after being closed for nearly a decade, officials said today.

The historic building on the Xizang Road S., also known as the Big World, would come back as the Shanghai Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition Center and reopened next October after a major renovation, according to the district government.

“Many national and city-level intangible cultural heritage skills will be performed on stage while some handicrafts will be exhibited,” said Xue Mingyang, a senior official with the standing committee of the city's legislative body.

The Dashijie entertainment center was built in 1917 and long regarded by local people as the city’s most attractive entertainment venue. The 12,000-square-meter building near the Huaihai Road had several small stages to perform various Chinese traditional operas as well as singing and acrobats.

It also had cinemas, shopping malls, snack bars and restaurants of both Chinese and western styles.

Construction kicks off on world's largest satellite terminal at Pudong airport for faster transfer service
December 29, 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



CONSTRUCTION started this morning on the world's largest satellite terminal building at the Pudong International Airport to provide a faster transferring service and enhance the punctuality rate.

With 83 departure gates and about 120 new aprons, the third terminal, including S1 and S1 will cover a total of 620,000 square meters, even larger than the Terminal 2 building that is 490,000 square meters.

The new terminal will make the Pudong airport capable of serving 80 million passengers a year. And the airport would become one of the world's top three after its completion in 2019 in terms of traffic.

Passengers will be able to check in at one of the two existing terminal buildings and then take an underground subway to get to the new facility, said Li Derun, president of the Shanghai Airport Authority.

The subway project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

That's awesome. Very glad that they are saving such a beautiful building.

And also, in the district of Fengxian, 30-45km south of the center of Shanghai, this building must have been just completed with 180 metres and 38 floors.

Majestic Theatre gets its original look
January 6, 2016
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



ONE of the oldest theaters in the city, Majestic Theatre, in Jing’an District had a quiet opening yesterday with its original look from the 1940s restored following a five-year long renovation.

The Russian Imperial Ballet Company staged Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s classic “Swan Lake” at the theater on Jiangning Road last night in what was said to be a trial run before its formal opening in April.

Concerts and stage performances will be staged during the Spring Festival holiday to test the sound, lights and performing effects, Qiu Guanlun, the general manager of the theater, said.

The theater will mainly stage musical plays and operas.

Qiu said they had managed to dig out dozens of original design plans from the Shanghai Urban Construction Archives as they tried to restore some of the earliest details in the theater. The two-story renovated theater now has fewer seats — 1,261 from the previous 1,597 — to ensure more legroom for the audiences.

The facilities inside the theater have been upgraded. Air-conditioning outlets have been installed near the seats to guarantee comfort. The new sound system has been imported from the United States while other paraphernalia have been brought from Portugal.

Majestic Theatre first opened in October 1941 and was one of the few venues that screened foreign movies.

THE western extension to Metro Line 12 will go into service by the end of the month.

The extension features 16 stations, and the whole line now connects with every other on the network, except 5 and 16.

The system operator said the service will help to ease the pressure on lines 1 and 9 during peak hours.

To make the line even more appealing to passengers, all station platforms on the new extension have been fitted with air purifiers, the company said.
Metro extensions prove popular
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
January 8, 2016

SOME of the newly opened Metro line extensions have eased passenger traffic at major intersections and some subway lines, Metro operator Shanghai Shentong Group said yesterday.

The new sections on Metro lines 11, 12 and 13 went into service late last month, providing more options for commuters. Line 12’s Hanzhong Road Station and Qufu Road Station now connect to Line 1 and 8, respectively, enabling riders to skip the People’s Square Station — the city’s busiest stop.

Over the past two weeks, the average passenger number at People’s Square Station had dropped almost 15 percent from the 700,000 people it handled per day, Shentong said.

City to keep population under 25m
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
January 25, 2016

THE Shanghai government has set a target to keep the city’s population under 25 million by 2020, Mayor Yang Xiong told the Shanghai People’s Congress yesterday.

“We will strictly control population growth through multiple policy measures,” he said while presenting the government work report on the opening day of the annual legislative session, which closes on Friday.

According to official figures released earlier, Shanghai had 24.3 million residents at the end of 2014, including registered locals and migrants who had been in the city for six months or more.

“The city government can take several measures, such as standardizing employment, demolishing illegal residential buildings and cracking down on group rentals to control the migrant population,” said Wang Jianping, director of the Shanghai Statistics Bureau.

The 25 million target was calculated after assessing the city’s resources and layout, he said.

I love Shanghai but the population control will not work. In the bad, the population goes to much down and then the residentials are ghosthouses. It is the same problem with birthcontroll. You demolish the balance of population. And then, if you have to less population, you need the people. This is a socialism planing system with typical socialism problems in the future.

Free markets would be the answer of this problems. Free markets for work, free markets for property and free markets to live where people wants to live.

100% of all refugees in the world will sign such a sentence :-)
Unfortunately, it is not that easy. Just look at Mexico City. The people there have the freedom to move where they would like to live. This has led to the creation of the slum Neza Chalco Itza with an epic 4 million inhabitants. It is the world’s largest slum and has the highest crime rate in the state of Mexico.
