As a more detailed explanation via words only, that area is on the right embankment of Suzhou Creek and roughly halfway between Hanzhong Road and Jiangning Road metro stations on line 13. I think the construction site also extends to the Jiangning Road station side of the Suzhou River. It used to be a slum-like collection of housing spanning both sides of the river just behind the Club Tower of Intercontinental Puxi (BM Plaza) until it got torn down a few years ago.

Hope this is useful!
That must be this area:

And this is what I have in my computer, I have no further information since is shorter than 100 metres. In the other side of the river, I don't know.

For the area between Hanzhong Road Station and Qufu Station, it is called "Suhe Bay Area", it's a huge masterplan with a big park and some skyscrapers up to 300 metres, but no concrete projects yet.

New path planned for North Bund
4 August 2016
Shanghai Daily Excerpt


全幅北外滩 / the panoramagram of the North Bund by Black station, on Flickr

HONGKOU District plans to build a continuous pedestrian path along the North Bund with several green skywalks and underground tunnels to connect it with Metro stations, the government announced yesterday.

The sightseeing path, which will be open to joggers and cyclists, will run 3.2 kilometers along the Huangpu River from the North Bund area to Sichuan Road N. and will feature gardens and skywalks along the way, said Zhang Lei, director of the Hongkou Planning and Land Resources Bureau.

“Residents will be able to walk from the Waibaidu Bridge through the Qinhuangdao cruise ship port along the Huangpu River. It will be one of the most beautiful jogging paths in the city,” Zhang said.

In various places along the path, several skywalks will be built across Changzhi Road E., making it easy for residents to get to the riverside.

One skywalk, which will be beautified with plants and flowers, will connect the path with the International Cruise Terminal Metro station on Line 12. A pedestrian tunnel under Gongping Road has also been planned.

Several sections of the path are already open to the public and the full project will be completed around 2020.

The North Bund area is being transformed into a financial and shipping center, and construction work covering 7.15 million square meters is planned, including office buildings, restaurants and shopping malls, according to the bureau.

An iconic 320-meter-tall building, the highest in the Puxi area, has been built. It will be home to a five-star hotel and offices, which will open in 2017, Zhang said.

The district planning authority also plans to convert some historic residential buildings along Zhoushan Road in the North Bund where Jewish refugees lived during World War II into innovative stores.

Hongqiao CBD dream nears reality
October 14, 2016
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



HONGQIAO Central Business District is well on the way to becoming a new urban center of the city, officials said yesterday.

A total of 282 buildings — 85 percent of those planned — had been topped off by the end of last year for the Hongqiao CBD with a planned area to cover 86 square kilometers, said Chen Weili, deputy director of its management committee.

Two luxury five-star hotels along with some office buildings and commercial facilities had been opened. More than 90 percent of the offices and 80 percent of the commercial areas for shopping and catering had been rented, Chen said.

Enterprises based in the CBD mainly include privately owned listed firms as well as Internet, financial and modern services companies, he added.

The city government established Hongqiao CBD in 2009 in the west part of the city. The business district extends across Minhang, Changning, Qingpu and Jiading districts.

The CBD has been positioned as a modern service industry cluster, a new international trade platform, a place to set up headquarters, trading institutions and economic organizations and an upmarket business service platform for businesses in China, according to its official website.

“The area is expected to become a new major economic growth drive of the city and the core place for the city’s ambition to become an excellent global city,” said Li Zhan, a professor with Jiao Tong University’s Antai College of Business and Management.

It is estimated that more than 650,000 employees will work for enterprises based in the zone by the end of 2020.

Art museum gets prime location in Lujiazui
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
November 9, 2016

A new art museum will be built at the core area of the Lujiazui financial center as part of local government efforts to increase cultural attractions in the Pudong New Area, the area’s top planning body announced yesterday.

The Pudong Art Museum will be built between the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Shanghai International Convention Center along the Huangpu River. It will cover 12,900 square meters and rise to a height of almost 30 meters, the Pudong Land and Planning Authority said.

The piece of vacant land picked as the site of the museum is deemed as the most valuable in Pudong and possibly even the city because of its significant location. Many real estate developers have expressed a willingness to pay a high premium to acquire the plot.

But the Pudong government has instead decided to build a public art venue there for nearby residents, an official with the authority said.

The future museum will mainly hold exhibitions of traditional and modern artworks. Its operations will include collection of works, research, exhibitions, education, cultural exchanges and public services, as well as tourism, according to the authority. The museum is still in the planning stages and an opening schedule has yet to be decided.

The planning body and the Pudong government have launched a global design competition for the museum design. Four international design institutes — OPEN, SANAA, Ateliers Jean Nouvel and David Chipperfield Architects — were picked to compete.

Once dominant stores to receive facelift to take on e-commerce
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
November 18, 2016, Friday


Shanghai No. 1 Department Store by Neil Noland, on Flickr

HUANGPU District will carry out a series of facelifts for its traditional department stores that are fighting back against the online shopping trend.

A batch of Shanghai’s earliest department stores on Nanjing and Huaihai roads will close their doors from next year for major renovations and to adjust their business operations to meet the demands of consumers in the Internet era, said Chen Yong, director with the district’s department of commerce. The stores will reopen around 2018.

“The pure retail departments will easily get killed by e-commerce, so we want to develop the social and cultural functions for the department stores,” said Chen Zhuofu, deputy director with the district. He added that the total investment for the renovation projects would top 10 billion yuan (US$1.45 billion).

Among the stores to be revamped are Shanghai No.1 Department Store and Orient Shopping Center on Nanjing Road E. They will close early next year.

The two stores — once the most popular shops in Shanghai — along with Liuhe Road that runs between them, will be integrated with skywalks into the No.1 Department Store Shopping Center to mainly target families from both home and abroad, said Wang Xiaoyan, deputy general manager with Bailian Group.

“The new center is also designed for local white-collar workers to spend holidays with friends and tourists from abroad who want to taste the city’s traditional culture and atmosphere,” Wang said.

The No.1 department store that opened in 1936 will be restored to its original look, but with a rooftop garden, an international food market and bookstores added. The landmark New World Department Store in People’s Square will also be closed for renovation, between June and September.

Shanghai Daily Excerpt
November 16, 2016



CONSTRUCTION on eight stations across downtown Shanghai along the planned Metro Line 14 will start over the next few months from this Friday, weighing down on congestion, police said yesterday.

Police announced new traffic arrangements around the stations and said they will keep working to relieve traffic pressure on the city center in the next four years during the construction.

The eight stations in Putuo, Jing’an and Huangpu districts and the Pudong New Area are located near popular tourist sites such as the Jing’an Temple, Huaihai Road, People’s Square, Yuyuan Garden and Lujiazui.

Construction of the Wuning Road and Jing’an Temple stations will start this Friday, and will begin on the adjacent Dongxin Road and Wuding Road stations next Friday.

The museum will show the history of business education in China. It will also showcase different tax bills along the history of China. The exhibits will include a title deed issued in 1518 and other revenue stamps in late Qing Dynasty.

An insurance pavilion will show how the industry had been introduced from western countries and developed in China, including insurance policies, photos and books.

Visitors can also see more than 100 abacuses, over 60 western calculators, 200 ancient coins and 145 existing currencies in different countries.

The museum is expected to open on September 17 next year, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the university.

Revamped riverside coming soon
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
November 30, 2016


Shanghai Pudong Sunset by James L Davidson, on Flickr

REDEVELOPED riverside areas in downtown Shanghai will open to the public by the end of the year, officials said yesterday.

The public areas along a 10-kilometer stretch, covering more than 700,000 square meters, in Pudong, Yangpu, Xuhui, Hongkou and Huangpu districts will include parks, sports venues, art galleries as well as preserved historic buildings along Huangpu River.

Furthermore by the end of 2017, a total of 45 kilometers of uninterrupted pedestrian paths — half in Puxi and half in Pudong — will run between Yangpu Bridge and Xupu Bridge, said Gu Jinshan, director of Shanghai’s Housing and Urban-Rural Development Administration.

“The city government aims to open the city’s best riverside areas in downtown to its citizens,” Gu said in a conference to local legislators yesterday.

The newly opened riverside areas include three new parks in the Qiantan area in Pudong, a south section of former industrial sites in Yangpu, a new pedestrian bridge in Xuhui, and part of the Shiliupu Dock in Huangpu, Gu added.

A 300-meter-long plank road over the river at the century-old Yangshupu Water Plant which is still operating, will also open to the public for the first time, he said.

The authority would continue to revamp former industrial sites and recover riverside lands from companies as well as demolishing illegal structures along the river, Gu said.

Uninterrupted pedestrian paths are the name of the game.

When the city’s plans come to fruition next year, the city government aims to make Huangpu River one of the world’s top riverside areas — on a par with the Left Bank in Paris and London’s Thames walkways.

Museums planned along Huangpu
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 6, 2016



YANGPU District plans to build a cluster of museums along the Huangpu River showcasing China’s industrial history dating back over a century, the local government said yesterday.

They will feature the country’s oldest shipyard, a textile mill, a gas plant and a fish market.

Yangpu has listed 32 historically protected buildings from these early industries along a 5.5 kilometer section of the river.

They will be preserved as museums or exhibition halls, said district director Xie Jiangang.

The Shanghai Shipyard, which has been relocated, has left a large number of facilities such as crane towers, conveyor belts, gear wheels and pipelines in its original address, according to a team with Fudan University who were invited by the district government to research valuable industrial relics in the area.

Two major shipyards, a workshop and a historic building with Shanghai’s earliest elevators are all worth being preserved and exhibited to the public, an expert with the team said.

China’s first 10,000-ton ship, the Shaoxing, was built in the shipyard in 1978 and the nation’s first oil drilling platform was also built there in 1984. The platform is still operating.

Some equipment and relics of the nation’s first textile mill, built in 1915, and the major seafood market which opened in 1946 will also be developed for exhibition.

A two-story wood and brick British style country villa which was the residence of the British boss of the textile mill has been converted into the visitors’ center for the area.

Historic garden villas given a new role
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 8, 2016



CHANGNING District has converted a cluster of historic villas into a financial park to attract financial companies.

Changning Financial Park at 1320 Yuyuan Road was opened yesterday and will house around 10 financial service companies with total assets of more than 100 billion yuan (US$14.5 billion), said Ji Yu, deputy president with the real estate sector of the state-owned Guosheng Group.

Yu will be in charge of the operation of the park.

The financial park will mainly offer various financial services to support Changning’s major industries — aviation services, Internet and fashion creativity, the district government said.

The 11 British-style garden villas inside the park, built around the 1920s and once home to overseas businessmen, are to be a highlight of the park.

Several of the buildings have been listed as the city’s protected “excellent historic buildings.”

The houses are owned by the district government and are rented to the group. Several financial companies including Zhongping Capital, a local asset management company, have announced they will move to the park soon.

That's Suzhou Creek, near Zhongtan Road station, 4.5km from Huangpu river.

Century-old Shanghai Dashijie set to recapture glorious golden days
December 23, 2016
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



SHANGHAI Dashijie, a century-old, once popular entertainment center in downtown, will reopen for a trial operation on Wednesday to exhibit “intangible cultural heritages,” officials said.

The building, also known as the Great World Amusement Center, will officially open to the public in March, the Huangpu District government said.

It will only open to invited visitors during the trial operation, such as staff from local government agencies, university students and the media to test safety and management.

The center will initially open three days a week and gradually increase opening days after the Spring Festival. The building is located on Xizang Road S. in Huangpu.

Ticket prices for the official opening have yet to be announced, but free and discounted tickets will also be issued because the center will reopen as a “public service” facility, according to the district culture bureau, which will run the center.
