Too many ~200m buildings in Lujiazui now...


I will go to that Sichuan Lu plot in a couple of weeks. I'm very interested in that tower.
The first phase might be the mid-rises.

Btw, staff, could you take a pic of the tower close to 曹阳路站 in Putuo district? Sanzhi Tower, aka Great Wall Mansion, aka Zhenrufu Center. Also by Arquitectonica studio.

The last pic we've seen is this one, from January 22.

Sure. I'm gonna stay in Putuo (Bailan Lu) for a couple of weeks actually, before moving to a place close to Fuxing Gongyuan.

I guess you're referring to 曹杨路站 though, right? It's just one station north from me!

Yup, wrong yang I'm pretty sure this tower must be topped out already. Can't wait to see the cladding.

No idea, but being 180m tall it shouldn't be difficult to find even in Shanghai

Hehe, I know. But I'm trying to locate the plot at http://sh.edushi.com/.


There are some other towers U/C in the area, but I think none of them is the Sanzhi.

Hmmm... edushi pics seem to be very outdated. I saw this one completely finished in July 2007 with my own eyes.

It's bloom time in architecture
By Li Xinran | 2008-6-23 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

JUST when you thought that Shanghai could not possibly become more architecturally state of the art, a company comes up with a trump card.

Picture a 68-story building in the shape of the bud of the city's floral emblem, the magnolia. Add to that a Broadway-style theater, an international hospital, an exhibition center and the only international school in the downtown area.

But wait, there's more.

The new will meet the old at ground level where shikumen, or stone-gate houses, will line traditional alleyways that will also incorporate fashion stores, museums and cafes.

Shui On Land Ltd developed the city's Xintiandi with the same old-meets-new theme. The 68-story project will be Xintiandi's sister ... Xintiandi's very big sister.

The Hong Kong-listed Shui On plans to complete Xintiandi II in the Taiping Lake area in the next seven to 10 years, directly opposite its smaller namesake.

The new skyscraper will stand near the business area of Xizang Road M. and construction is expected to begin before the end of the year, Shui On says.

The stone-gate alleys along Dongtai Road will be restored to their original splendor and incorporate antique stores and small museums, according to Shui On officials.

The 52-hectare project to rebuild the Taiping Lake area is expected to become part of a secondary central business district. Two six-star hotels - the Jumeirah and the Conrad - are already earmarked to be opened in the area in November.

Shui On also unveiled a new wishing fountain in the northern part of Xintiandi over the weekend.

The fountain, designed by Chinese-Dutch sculptress Wu Jingru, features images of three traditional Chinese gods "Fu," "Lu" and "Shou" - signifying luck, fortune and health.

Wu said the three bronze sculptures, each more than two meters tall, are a fusion of traditional Chinese beliefs and a Western fountain.

If there was any doubt whatsoever, Gensler is indeed the winner.

City skyscraper to look like coiled dragon

By Chen Qian | 2008-6-24 | ONLINE EDITION

THE planned 580-meter-tall Shanghai Center will look like a coiled dragon according to its architects, the Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tongji University and United States-based Gensler Firm, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

The top of the skyscraper will look like either a turned up dragon tail or an inverted Olympic torch.

Construction of the building will start this year in Lujiazui, Pudong New Area, under the approval of the Shanghai Development & Reform Commission, the report said.

Once it is finished, it will be the tallest building in China, exceeding the 492 meters of the under-construction Shanghai World Financial Center, the 420.5-meter Jin Mao Tower and Taipei 101, which is the country's present tallest building at 501 meters.

The bid for Shanghai Center started in April 2005. More than 10 domestic and overseas design firms took part.

Gensler and Tongji University will soon begin more detailed designs for the building, the report said. 

Shanghai Center will greatly relieve the shortage of office space in Lujiazui, according to a previous report from Xinhuanet.com.

By the end of 2006, there were 112 office buildings with 7.89 million square meters of space in Lujiazui. Ninety percent of the offices are fully occupied.
Pudong plans to add 3 million square meters of office buildings within five years.

Walkway to ease traffic woes in Lujiazui

By Yang Lifei | 2008-6-26 | ONLINE EDITION

A C-SHAPED walkway will be built in Shanghai's financial heart of Lujiazui in Pudong New Area by the end of this year, the Shanghai Morning Post reported today.

Following serveral alterations, the final design was approved and construction has started, the report said.

The walkway will link Lujiazui Station on Line 2, Super Brand Mall and a project by Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd. The area is expected to have large crowds of pedestrians. It is also expected to improve vehicle flow and be safer for pedestrians.

People have complained that the area was restricted to vehicles and was difficult to get around, the report said.

The government has long considered an elevated walkway to make up for poor traffic planning. The footbridge will connect to Jin Mao Tower and the Lujiazui Metro Station on Line 14, the report said, citing blueprints.

The ongoing underground construction involves various pipelines. It also affects traffic. Coordination is being carried out to ensure the smooth progress of the project and normal traffic flows.

During an urban planning exhibit on June 12, a project official told Shanghai Daily that construction of the walkway would be completed before 2010.
``The walkways will be 7 meters high and escalators will be installed at the major entrances,'' said Li Junhao, chief engineer of the Shanghai Urban Planning Administrative Bureau.

Disneyland in Pudong a 'done deal'

Source: Shanghai Daily | 2008-6-29 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

YEARS of negotiations between the Shanghai government and Walt Disney Co appear to have clinched a deal for a huge Disneyland to be built in Pudong.

The official announcement is expected to be made after the Beijing Olympics in August.

An exclusive report published by the Hong Kong-based Wen Wei Po newspaper yesterday said the park will cover about 10 square kilometers of land - about eight times the size of Hong Kong Disneyland.

It will be near Pudong's Chuansha Town, about 20 minutes' drive from Pudong International Airport.

Earlier media reports had said the Shanghai government preferred it to be built on the city's island county Chongming.

Yesterday's report quoted unnamed people involved in the discussion, saying Shanghai Disneyland won't follow the Hong Kong model, in which the Hong Kong government leased the land to Disney.

The Shanghai government will provide the land, finance construction, and own the majority stake in the park, the report said.

Management rights will be given to Disney, which will also get royalties and a percentage of operational income.

The report said the park will open "at the earliest possible time" in 2012, when about one-third of the park will be completed.

"Considering inflation, the budget to build the park, excluding the land cost, should rise to about 40 billion yuan (US$5.7 billion), from the earlier estimate of 30 billion yuan," an unnamed "expert involved in the appraisal of the project" was quoted as saying.

In March, Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng said the local government had applied to the central government to build a Disneyland.

It would be the third Disneyland in Asia after Japan and Hong Kong.

Walt Disney Co signed a statement of intent to build a Disneyland on the Chinese mainland in 2002, and then set up a venture to develop it.

The plan was put on hold because of concerns that the Hong Kong park, opened in 2005, would suffer.

Thanks. I won't.

The cladding is really fast on the Great Wall Mansion, I think it will be completely clad in about two weeks or so.
