Good grief, that is huge. Shanghai is reminding Dubai not to get too full of themselves.

...except that SP and Seoul barely poke above 200m whereas Shanghai already has around 50 towers of that height.

The Shanghai Cruise Terminal has a website at http://www.sipgcruiseterminal.com/index.htm. It shows a new (?) rendering of the old proposal on the front page - probably because the website hasn't been updated in a while, I guess.
We might see some updates there though in the future.

Some stuff is happening at the Nanjing Xi Lu 1788 plot. I don't know what though, since there are no signs or renderings around the plot at all.

This is the last rendering we have of the project. Not sure if this is what's being built though.


Thanks to z0rg

I checked online, no renderings, but it's supposed to be a 130 meter tower. That's all I have.

130? That's a bit of a disappointment...

Some stuff is going on at the south Jing An Kerry Centre plot (the lower(?) tower to the right in the rendering below, if I understand it correctly) - facing Yan'An Rd;

Rendering (click for 2694 x 3294 resolution);

The north, Nanjing Xi Lu facing plot is still a big chaos of nothing.

The site is also surrounded by Jing An Kerry Centre-, Shangri-La Kerry Centre- and Kerry Properties signs.

Great, staff. Seems like Jingan skyline will change a lot in the coming years.

It will indeed.

So will the Luwan skyline as well it seems. Across from the Golden Magnolia Plaza there's a huge construction site where a big metro hub is being built, as well as an office tower (that I saw a rendering of, but didn't photograph it - you got a render, z0rg?).

image hosted on flickr



The site is at Xujiahui Lu/Ruijin Er Lu/Taikang Lu.

No idea man, maybe the masterplan renders of Xintiandi area could help.

I think this picture looks sad...they're destroying historic European-style houses to build monstrosities of skyscrapers. Why don't they just renovate some old buildings and make them useful instead of tearing them down and build new ones?:

Oh god no! Destroying European style houses to build Chinese ones? It's clearly the end of the world!

Nevermind, haha.

Hi staff,
I guess these old buildings will be removed eventually. Please see the project design. They will build two skyscrapers and two lowrises. There seems to be no space for those old buildings.
