Another taller one coming? From BM Holding website:

Introductions of the project in Phase 2 & 3 of Zhabei District:
Located within the territory with borderlines of West Tianmu Road, Puji Road and Suzhou River , this project has a site area of 56000 m2 and a floor area of 279000 m2. High-end office buildings, residential complex and commercial & cultural facilities are projected to be built in this territory. It is expected that a booming central business district will come into being in this territory by integrating this project into the general layout for the development of Zhabei District framed by the government and taking full advantages of its convenient traffic and golden location.

Wow, so it will be located just opposite of the BM Plaza (because that's BM Plaza in the middle of the pics, right?) where the basketball courts are today? Will make for a nice cluster.

City creek looks to Europe for inspiration

By Dong Hui | 2008-9-24 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

SHANGHAI is holding a forum on Sunday to collect advice on how to turn the Suzhou Creek into an "Oriental Seine," Putuo District government said yesterday.

The forum, which has attracted 200 participants, will discuss ways to protect the river's cultural resources and boost the cultural and tourism industries in the area, said Jing Ying, the district's deputy chief.

Officials from eight local districts, Kunshan and Wujiang cities in Jiangsu Province will talk about how to create a "cultural corridor" along the waterway, Jing said.

More than 20 renowned planners from Belgium, Italy, Britain, Germany and Holland will attend the forum. Six will deliver speeches on how Venice, Hamburg, Antwerp and other cities developed their rivers.

Among the plans that have already been set is a sightseeing route for water buses that will allow visitors to sail from the river's source in Jiangsu Province to its end in Shanghai, said Liu Maoya, director of Putuo's culture bureau.

"The tentative idea is for tourists to cruise from Taihu Lake in Jiangsu Province and drift along the creek. They can stop at places they like and go ashore." Liu said.

Yantgze Delta may top New York, Tokyo

By Liang Yiwen | 2008-9-24 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

THE Yangtze River Delta will surpass the New York and Tokyo regions to become the world's most economically productive metropolitan area by 2018, scholars from Shanghai Jiao Tong University said at a seminar yesterday.

They said gross domestic product in the Yangtze Delta metropolitan region, which comprises a triangular-shaped territory including Shanghai, southern Jiangsu Province and northern Zhejiang Province ?? will exceed that of New York in 2013 and Tokyo in 2018.

The predictions were based on a forecast of 11-percent GDP growth in the delta and 2 percent for New York and Tokyo.

"The GDP of the Yangtze Delta region will reach 15.92 trillion yuan (US$2.3 trillion) in 2020," said Gao Ruxi of Jiao Tong University.

Scholars urged Yangtze Delta authorities to increase the service industry and lift any internal barriers that may hinder future development.

They also advised area authorities to learn from the Pearl River Delta region in Guangdong Province, also one of the country's leading economic regions and a major manufacturing center.

The Pearl River Delta region generates a massive amount of GDP with lower investment than other regions, and its quality of life is comparatively high in terms of people's savings and the prevalence of computers and cell phones among its consumers, authorities said.

Now you know the design of that small tower infront of the WMP (and behind the lowrises along the waterfront). Lower than I thought.

Hope that part of the render isn't accurate and not showing the real schedule.

Btw, anybody has some render of the u/c stuff in the north extreme of the Waitan? You can see the thing rising here

Would like to see a render of that one, hehe. But I mean the one rising right behind it, or maybe it is a part of the PH either? The one on the left here.

Ground broken on Puxi's biggest block


2008-9-29


CONSTRUCTION has started on the tallest office building in Puxi, the city area on the west side of the Huangpu River. The new skyscraper is being built in the North Bund.

A 300-meter block will be the main building of the project, called White Magnolia Plaza, which will also include two lower adjacent hotel towers, city officials said.

The project will occupy an area of about 57,000 square meters at the North Bund, next to Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal.

The plaza will sit opposite the Lujiazui financial area, which includes the Oriental Peal TV Tower and the World Financial Center.

The project will be com░?pleted in 2012, according to the officials.

The complex is located near the crossing of Dongdaming and Lushun roads, and the main tower will have 66 floors.

The cross section of the buildings is in the shape of a magnolia, the city flower of Shanghai.

Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) have designed the project.

Perforated aluminum sunshades will reduce solar heat during the day and light pollution at night.

SOM said sustainable technology was integrated into the design to result in less carbon emissions from the complex, as well as a reduction in water consumption, power demand and its impact on the environment.

"White Magnolia Plaza represents a powerful new direction in high-rise architecture,'' Ross Wimer, a design partner for the project, said. "The complex, curved surfaces of the building were designed and engineered with software used in the aerospace industry."

Are the 'White Magnolia Plaza' and the 'North Bund Tower' the same project or are that different towers?
