I walked past the Xintiandi II site tonight and it already has huge renderings of the new supertall on the fence surrounding the plot. I wish I had taken a photo of it, but I'll do it next time.

Went past the BM Plaza today (without my camera) and realized how tall that thing is now. What's the final height going to be, z0rg?

New hotel rises from historic lane homes

By Dong Hui | 2008-7-7 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

THE city's first hotel inside a 70-year-old area of shikumen-style homes is about to start construction, according to Xuhui District government.

The project, called Jianyeli, will reuse bricks and original materials in its reconstruction. The buildings, which were built during 1931 to 1938 on Jianguo Road W., form the biggest area of traditional houses remaining in Shanghai.

The 260 suites, measuring around 25,000 square meters in total, are all stone-gated houses built closely together.

Scheduled to open later this year, Jianyeli will be renovated in two parts - modern shikumen-style apartments in the east lane, with hotel rooms in the west lane.

The east lane, with 40 percent of total buildings, is expected to regain the original shikumen look of the 1930s.

The hotel in the west lane will have 80 to 100 suites. An international hotel-management company will be invited to run it.

During Jianyeli's reconstruction, about 40,000 bricks will be preserved and reused, said Shanghai Hengfu Property Co Ltd, which is in charge of the project. An old 8-story water tower will also be reconstructed. Original materials will be used in the lanes, gates, terraces and arches.

Jianyeli was home to about 1,100 families in 2003, when residents were relocated to more spacious apartments.

Shanghai Poly Plaza



Poly Group is China Mainland second largest developer. These guys are building some huge stuff in Shenyang and Chongqing, then they come with this tiny one for Shanghai. I wonder why is Shanghai getting so few big ones in the last years despite of its very low vacancy rates. No wonder how many cities are catching up with her about 200m+ skyscrapers.

Shanghai Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center







Shanghai Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center is planned as an international sports event center to symbolize development of the outskirts of Shanghai City, in Min-hang District. It is expected to create a world-class tennis center compared with the Wimbledon in London and the Roland Garros in Paris on a 15ha site. We aimed to realize the city's development into movable roof system for the main stadium in this sports center, which is introduced for sports stadiums for the first time in China. The national flower of China is Paeonia suffruticosa, therefore, we designed and proposed a beautiful international tennis sports center as the main stadium is like the flower.

Since the city has much rain and strong sunshine, the roof system is considered to be necessary. The movable roof system is extremely simple but the movement system is taken for the first time in the world. The roof opens like flowering. When the roof opens, many sunshades are given around the stadium. It will offer comfortable environments like shades given by trees for people gathering inside and outside of the stadium.

When spectators walk over the gate, they look up the upside down conic-shaped main stadium with much excitement. They climb up a gentle slope and approach to the stadium. From the top of the slope, a deck spreads out and they can see many courts for qualifying events. While a plaza is set up around the main stadium, many shops and cafe are provided so that people can enjoy shopping and eating. Gentle steps are provided between the deck and courts for qualifying events and the place will be used for resting. Under the consideration to the surrounding environment, rich green belt is provided in the site so that visitors can enjoy seasonal flowers.

The movement line of visitors is considered a circulation in the whole site and is planned not only for enjoying the games but also enjoying eating, shopping and taking photos to make lots of memories.

The stadium with capacity for 15,000 spectators is Colosseum-shaped. The design was determined for producing players' sense of unity with spectators. As section shows, rooms for players and administrators are on the first floor. Confluence of spectators is separated from their areas. In the summer, cold air comes down from the top of the building to the floor of the round stadium. In the winter, warmed air by ducting system under spectators' seats is sent directly to spectators. It aims to offer comfortable environments with minimum maintenance cost. The structure of the stadium, called 'tension ring structure' creates strong and reliable Colosseum-shape.

The movable roof of the main stadium consists of eight petals and each petal turns around on one fulcrum at the same time. Under the petals, there is a round truss, which has an inverted triangle section, and it supports petals. Each petal can move by one fulcrum and three rails, and the total consists of cantilever beam. It brings ability of enough strength into full play even wind blowing during Typhoon.

Night is also the time when the tennis center is brightened up. The external form of the stadium is lighted up and a disk with lights comes out. For players and visitors, the flower stadium will remain as a worldwide tennis center in their good memories.

Shanghai Ren(People) Hotel





The Ren(People) Building is a proposal for a hotel, sports and conference center for the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. The building is conceived as two buildings merging into one.

The first building, emerging from the water, is devoted to the activities of the body, and houses the sports and water culture center. The second building emerging from land, is devoted to the spirit and enlightment, and houses the conference center and meeting facilities. The two buildings meet in a 1000 room hotel, a building for living.

The building becomes the Chinese sign for ‘The People’, and a recognizable landmark for the World Expo in China

Why post 2-3 year old proposals?

the first page contains so many images that it takes a very long time to load them. By posting them again in these subsequent not-as-cluttered pages, people can gain access to these images a lot quicker.

Nja, i don't agree, even with a 56k internett speed you probably get all the pics at the first page faster than going through all the pages in this thread.

And the thread is kinda ment for the news from the date the thread is made. Thats why we usually don't repost old projects over and over again, unless they get approved/rejected, or construction starts or something like that of course.

Can't remember the name either, but they are actually twin towers (both of which are nearly finished on the outside). The one in the above photo is my favourite of the two, but they both have very similar shapes and facades. I think I will go there tomorrow and do an update since I'm planning to take some photos at the Xintiandi II site.

Good, can't wait to see the posters that mr Xiao Bai felt lazy to take pics of, heh.

Btw, they posted at Cityrain's thread that Xujiahui Center will be 4x48 floors

I think the two buildings above are a Conrad Hotel and a Jumeirah Hotel. They are located across the road from Xintiandi.
