Water wonders for Minhang

By Cai Wenjun | 2008-9-8 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

IT'S going to be fun messing about on the river.

The banks of the Huangpu River in Minhang District are to become the site of entertainment programs, district officials have said.

A dock will feature yachts sailing from Minhang to Taihu Lake and Dianshanhu Lake and a water amusement park on the river's western bank in Wujing Town will offer water sports and fishing.

A southern part of Pujiang Town located on the eastern bank will be developed into a modern farm park.

The park is expected to get ready for visitors by next year's Spring Festival.

Pujiang will be developed into a small exotic town with an Italian theme and a space-themed scientific park.

A yacht dock is expected to be constructed near the Fengpu Bridge. Water buses will sail along newly developed routes from Minhang to two famous water scenic spots, Taihu Lake and Dianshanhu Lake.

Greenlands along the river's both banks will be renovated in line with the new tourism plan.

Residential complexes will also be built under the plan.

Happy Valley to squeak Mickey

By Chen Lu | 2008-9-11 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

CONSTRUCTION is nearing completion on what will become the biggest amusement park in eastern China when it opens next year.

The theme park, in Shanghai's Songjiang District, is not being built by Disney. It's developer is a Shenzhen-based company that claims it's not worried that the world's most famous mouse is on his way.

The Shanghai Happy Valley theme park plans to open in July with more than 20 amusements, including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, magic shows and other attractions.

It will be part of a complex that also features an unusual five-star hotel built into the side of an old quarry, and the Guangfulin Cultural Park, which will house artifacts from a village dating back 4,000 years.

Located in the Sheshan national holiday resort in Shanghai's southwestern suburbs, Happy Valley will cover more than 86 hectares and is expected to host 5 million to 7 million visitors a year, the Songjiang Tourism Bureau reported this week.

It is being built by Shenzhen OCT Properties Co Ltd, which has opened other similarly named parks in Shenzhen, Beijing and Chengdu dating back to 1998. Investment costs were not revealed.

"We carried out market research before construction even began on Happy Valley," said Wu Ming, director of the Songjiang bureau's tourism promotion department. "We are confident it can attract about 10,000 visitors a day."

Happy Valley will be 10 times larger than the Jinjiang Amusement Park in Minhang District, the city's first such park and currently the largest.

By opening next year, Happy Valley will get a running start to establish itself before major competition arrives. Shanghai is expected to host its own Disneyland in 2012 or 2013.

In the meantime, the 2010 World Expo, which is expected to attract 70 million tourists, should provide a large potential customer base.

Pics by napalm from Beiwaitan.

Meliß Hotel almost finished. The cladding of the convention center (forgot the actual name) rising already. Also IFC1.


Poly complex rising.


North Bund Tower/White Magnolia Plaza


From the Waitan. Ping Ang Center horror tower rising, also that boxy midrse in the foreground.


Again the box.


Render of SOM's project, already u/c.




Not sure what's this one. Seems like it'll be taller than the lowrises in the foreground. There was a 180m~ tower proposed somewhere in this area, hope it's the one rising.


They took ages to finish this either


Again SIFC


Seems like the Bank of East Asia purchased the GFB. New name: BEA Finance Tower.


BEA Tower, SIFC and Ping An Tower.

Haha, welcome

Could it be this project? I know it was supposed to be proposed at Beiwaitan like 4 years ago.

Seems like Gensler's BM project at Zhabei district is taller than we thought. 220m, not 203m. Then other sources claim it is 218m Always the same story, different sources provide different heights, can't stand it!

From BM Holding website
