z0rg,

4x48 eh? That's quite the disappointment if true. I don't live anywhere close to Xujiahui anymore but I'll see if I can get my ass out there some time.

Bleh, they're just posters. I'd rather photograph the building itself!

True that. Do you still live in the same place at Xujiahui Gongyuan?

Who are you calling lazy?

z0rg, the rendering you have been waiting for:

image hosted on flickr



It's weird, because the renderings of this site aren't located near the plot at all, but several blocks away surrounding another plot where two condos are under construction.

No info regarding exact heights unfortunately, so I guess we have to trust the Shanghai Daily numbers for now.

Oh, wow, wow, wow!!! I swear I wanted tell staff to pay a visit to BM Plaza site (200m, 50 floors, Gensler) the other day, but I thought I might be going too far with so many requests. Especially since this one had been on hold for one or two years till the last time I saw images of it (July 2007 when I walked around the area). Now just LOOK AT THIS. July 11 by neufcent9, from flickr.

No idea. Well, I know Albani Oasis Garden (260m) is somewhere in Zhabei and supposed to be u/c. But I've NEVER seen an update of this one.

Shangri-La's Kerry Centre Hotel, Pudong Shanghai Will Open Mid-2010
9 Nov 2007


Updated: June 2008

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Asia Pacific's leading luxury hotel group, will open Shangri-La's Kerry Centre Hotel, Pudong Shanghai in mid-2010. This will be the group’s second Shanghai hotel in addition to the Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai.

Designed by US-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC and Hong Kong-based Aedas Ltd, the 574-room hotel will be located in the Kerry Centre, Pudong Shanghai, a 230,000-square-metre multi-purpose complex that will include serviced apartments, a retail mall and an office tower. It is a 30-minute drive from Pudong International Airport and a 15-minute drive to the World Expo site. The city’s underground subway Route No. 7 terminal station is being built adjacent to the new centre.

Contemporary styled and featuring Century Park views, the hotel's guestrooms will measure a minimum of 42 square metres. The five floors of Horizon Club accommodation, Shangri-La’s exclusive retreat for discerning travellers, will offer a host of special amenities and privileges, including the Horizon Club lounge for daily breakfast and cocktails, meeting rooms, and express check-in and check-out services.

Dining and entertainment options will include an all-day café, a Chinese restaurant, a speciality restaurant and a lobby lounge.

The hotel will feature a 6,000-square-metre recreational “mega sports club.” Occupying two floors, the sports club will include a gym, a swimming pool, tennis and badminton courts, a yoga studio, a lounge and juice bar. A 600-square-metre “adventure zone” will be a play fantasy come true for children. The club will also provide outdoor areas for team building and exercise.

Meeting and banqueting facilities will include a 2,400-square-metre grand ballroom and a 1,200-square-metre junior ballroom, which can be connected to create one space, with a large pre-function area.

A business, conference and office centre will provide secretarial support, courier services, copy shop, travel desk, workstations, meeting rooms and conference facilities in addition to serviced offices for short and long term rental.

Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Asia Pacific’s leading luxury hotel group, currently owns and/or manages 55 hotels under the deluxe Shangri-La and mid-market Traders brands, with a rooms inventory of over 28,000. The group has over 50 projects under development in Austria, Canada, mainland China, France, India, Japan, Macau, Maldives, Philippines, Qatar, Seychelles, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States. For more information and reservations, please contact a travel professional or access the website at www.shangri-la.com.
