did the design change from the render above? or is that render really old? or is it simply because the building looks different from difference side? look at the middle of the building, it is cylindrical where as in the render its just a small gap

Greenland site deal Shanghai's biggest this year
6 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Cash-rich Greenland Group has secured a 186,500 square metre residential development site on the outskirts of Shanghai for 957 million yuan (HK$1.09 billion) in the city's biggest land deal of the year so far.

Greenland, which has set itself an ambitious sales target of 40 billion yuan this year, paid 36 per cent above the opening price of 703 million yuan to see off bids from three competitors for the site in Chen Hua Road, Songjiang district.

"The impact is significant as it indicates developers are once again interested in land acquisitions," said David Ng, the head of regional property research at Royal Bank of Scotland Group.

Taking advantage of land values dropping to affordable levels, developers would replenish their land banks before a full recovery of the property market took place, he said.

"Their re-entry into the market also tells us that their cash-flow positions have improved," Mr Ng added.

The sale comes a week after another mainland developer, Gemdale Corp, outbid nine other competitors to win a 83,645 square metre residential site in Shanghai's Qingpu district for 560 million yuan, about 82 per cent above the opening bid.

On Monday, Shimao Property Holdings made its first acquisition in 15 months by securing a commercial and Qingdao residential site through a partnership for HK$920 million.

Mr Ng said the property market could recover before the last quarter of the year if investors returned to the residential sector.

"Now the market is largely supported by end-users. Prices will not move up quickly unless investors get back into the high-end residential sector," he said.

The price of the Chen Hua Road development site, with a potential gross floor area of 260,000 square metres, represents an accommodation value of 3,680 yuan per square metre. According to Shanghai property agency Tiaofun, the asking price for a 124 square metre unit at Laidun Xiao Cheng, a major residential development along Chen Hua Road, is 650,000 yuan or nearly 5,242 yuan per square metre.

Tiaofun agent Feng Zhao said transaction prices in nearby areas were 5,000 yuan to 6,000 yuan per square metre.

"We have not heard about Greenland buying the site. Owners here do not change their asking prices at all," Mr Feng said.

He said he hoped the sale would help boost prices in the area.

I read the news last week on foundation laying of Shanghai Financial and Information Tower (中国金融信息大厦). It seems a big event but I couldn't find any data on that building.

Anybody has the height/rendering of this building? Thanks.

from what i have read it is the construction of the xinhua tranche for business .Xinhua will start something similar to CNBC to provide 24*7 financial news from all across teh globe .It will be called ( if i am not mistaken) xinhua09 .I think Xinhua holds 50% stake in this new joint venture with some one else .Anyway it was heavily advertised as one of the baby steps to makeChina an international financial hub .So th eyare saying having something similar to CNBC in China is very important ) =)) .Anyway honestly speaking I think its hype was just to prop up ppl's confidence that Chinese govt is interested in makingshanghai a financial hub :P in my view this is just a gimmick and does not deserve the level of importance it got . I am also sure this building is not a big deal like it was potrayed on xinhua (remember i read the english version) .

Luwan to preserve shikumens and build another Xintiandi

By Yang Jian | 2009-5-18 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

SHANGHAI'S Luwan District will redevelop one of its shikumen (stone-gated) neighborhoods into another Xintiandi, the city's popular shopping, eating and entertainment area, within three years, the district's governor said yesterday.

And all the district's more than 2,000 shikumen buildings will be restored.

Some may be turned into business hubs such as Xintiandi, new residential areas such as the Cite Bourgogne community, or business and residential complexes such as Tian Zi Fang on Taikang Road, Governor Weng Zuliang told the first 2010 World Expo Shanghai public forum, which focused on the protection of shikumen buildings.

The district is still deciding where to build the "second Xintiandi" but run-down shikumen neighborhoods near downtown commercial areas that can no longer house residents will be the first choice, Weng said.

Xintiandi and Tian Zi Fang are both renovated old shikumen areas that now house boutique shops and restaurants.

Xintiandi makes 100 million yuan (US$14.65 million) in revenue every month, said Zhou Yongping, the president's assistant of the Hong Kong-based developer, the Shui On Group.

Shikumens that can still be used as residences will be restored like the Cite Bourgogne on Shaanxi Road S, Weng said.

The district will restore the facades, overhaul the plumbing and instal fire-protection systems. Renovations will be completed on 800 shikumens by the end of the year.

Wu Jiang, vice president of the city's Tongji University and an expert on cultural relics, told the forum that Xintiandi, Tian Zi Fang and Cite Bourgogne are the best three examples of restoration solutions for shikumens.

The scholars and government officials released a joint statement at the forum to preserve shikumens and use the buildings to create "greater social and economic benefits." Meanwhile, the Shanghai Shikumen Culture Research Center was established yesterday to publicize the history and culture of the buildings.

The city has also launched a Website (www.shikumen.org) on shikumen buildings.

Shikumens were initially built in the city as early as 1850s by European colonists in the foreign concessions to rent to Chinese residents.

At one stage, up to 80 percent of the city's population lived in this type of house.

The city government demolished most of the buildings in the early 1990s in its urban construction.

Terrible. Reminds me of some of the "neo-neo-classical" official buildings you see in places in the US.
