Pay attention to this pic. We can see several 'prep' plots, what are they planning there? The big one in the middle is a few blocks westwards from NJXL 1788th I think. Pic by jerryang.

Looks like a typical Shanghai Metro construction site actually. Do you know if a station will be located there?

I'm pretty sure the plot on the left is a hotel/luxury apartments. I remember seeing a rendering. They looked average at best. Not tall. Not sure about the plot on the right.

Huge new center for Xujiahui

2008-10-23


THE tallest building west of the Huangpu River will be built in Xujiahui, according to Xuhui District government.

The Xujiahui Center, comprising three skyscrapers, will be built on Hongqiao Road and Yishan Road N., west of the Grand Gateway Plaza.

Plans of the new complex appeared on Monday on the Website of the Xuhui District Urban Planning Administrative Bureau.

The center will have a total floor space of 79.69 square kilometers, twice as large as the World Financial Center.

Most of the Xujiahui Center will be given over to offices and hotels. One of the developers, Shanghai Urban Development (Group), said that offices will account for more than 50 percent of the space, and a 400-room five-star hotel will cover 50,000 to 60,000 square meters.

The tallest block in the complex will be 340 meters high, making it the highest skyscraper west of the Huangpu River.

Another two office buildings will be 130 and 180 meters high, respectively.

The construction of the new center will take between 5 and 10 years, according to Xuhui District government.

SHANGHAI | Xujiahui Center (Proposed): 340m, 80~floors. Very old project re launched for several times. Formerly a 459m proposal by John Portman, it has been reduced once and again, and last announcements claim that the final design could be just 340m tall. Among the latest known proposals are SOM and Foster, and their designs are all 350-400m tall. Thread



Upwards revision to 380m confirmed. Still no images of the final version.

Gubei plans to open city's top pedestrian street in May

By Tom Qian | 2008-11-12 | ONLINE EDITION

A FRENCH-STYLE pedestrian street will open in Shanghai's Changning District in May.

Officials hope the 670-meter long stretch in Huangjinchengdao in the Gubei area becomes the top pedestrian street in the city, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

Meanwhile, the district will also become home to the China headquarters of the luxury retailer LVMH Group. Construction of the LVMH building at the intersection of Zhunyi Rd. and Xianxia Rd. will be completed in 2011, said the report. The group plans to showcase more than 40 of its luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Tag Heuer and Dior.

More than 10 business projects would add 1 million square meters of new commercial space in the district, the report said, citing the Changning District Economy Commission yesterday.

After completion, total business space in the district will exceed 2 million square meters, mainly in five business areas: Hongqiao, Zhongshan Park, Caojiadu, Linkong and around subway stations. Among them the commercial space in Zhongshan Park area will expand from 351,000 square meters to 430,000 square meters.

Retailers such as Marks & Spenser expressed interest in opening retail outlets in the district, according to the report.

Census will update population records

RESIDENTS of two subdistricts in Hongkou District may have police arriving on their doorsteps over the next few months.

Authorities will conduct population registration for everyone within the area - including local residents, people from other provinces and cities, and foreign nationals - from now until spring next year, the Shanghai Public Security Bureau said yesterday.

The registration work helps the city government update its population data. Liangcheng residential area and Jiangwan Town are the two pilot subdistricts in the project. The registration work may be conducted citywide next year, according to police officials.

Currently, authorities only have registration details from residence certificates, or hukou. If one person registers his hukou in Hongkou District and lives in Pudong New Area, he may still be registered as living in Hongkou District. If a household moves from Anhui Province to Shanghai, the household may not be registered in the current hukou system.

More than 21 million people live in Shanghai, but only 13.78 million people are registered with the hukou system, according to the Shanghai Population and Family Planning Commission.

Shanghai had 18.58 million permanent residents last year, which makes it the most densely populated city on the Chinese mainland - with 2,931 people in each square kilometer.

The city also has a floating population of about 6.6 million people, which means one in three people in Shanghai has moved from another province.

The situation makes population management a vast challenge, city officials say.

"We will establish a database of population figures in the two subdistricts," said Sun Weiguo, Party secretary of Hongkou. "Police and neighborhood committees will also keep the data updated and accurate."
