because 100m will definitely seem to be a better number than 99.95 to have for the height, its just some convention i guess, people going for those common numbers if you know what i mean

New luxury homes continue to find buyers
29 August 2009
Shanghai Daily

WHEN Jennifer Jiang and her husband strolled past the sales office of Star River in Pudong's Huamu area on a recent Sunday morning, the couple was jarred by the hurly-burly in a neighborhood accustomed to peace and quiet.

"We were astonished by all the noise and the glut of parked cars everywhere," she said. "Then we discovered the cause. A luxury housing project in the neighborhood was having its grand opening."

The couple, who moved to Huamu about four years ago from Shanghai's downtown Luwan District, were even more aghast by all the hubbub when they looked at prices ranging between 10 million yuan (US$1.46 million) and 30 million yuan a unit.

The Star River developer claimed that a majority of its 322 units had been booked by buyers on the first day they went on the market.

As of Tuesday, 232 Star River apartments had been sold at an average price above 50,000 yuan per square meter, according to the city's official housing Website, which tracks both new and existing home sales.

The luxury housing market in Shanghai started its boom in March this year. Analysts attribute the surge mainly to the government's relatively loose macroeconomic policies and an increasing investment need to park cash in real estate as a hedge against inflation.

Developer Greentown China said all the units of its Bund House, a luxury housing project in the downtown Huangpu District, were sold out on the opening day. The 86 units, each of more than 300 square meters, were selling at an average price of 17 million yuan each. Contracts for 53 units were signed as of this week.

"Sales of high-end residential projects across the city started to pick up at unprecedented pace since March, with no signs of easing all the way through August," said Lu Qilin, a researcher at Shanghai Uwin Real Estate Information Services Co.

According to Uwin, 7,448 square meters of new luxury homes, each priced at more than 40,000 yuan a square meter, were sold across the city in March. In April, the figure more than doubled, and in the first 20 days of August alone, the number had skyrocketed 13-fold. The prices of new homes in the week ended August 16 soared a record 17 percent to almost 20,000 yuan a square meter.

"Shanghai's residential market has gone from strength to strength in the past six months in both take-up and price, both in the new and existing home markets," said Albert Lau, executive director for Savills China. "The high-end of the market has performed particularly well, with prices up some 20 to 30 percent in this period."

This apparently insatiable appetite for property investment has helped soak up excess inventories left over from the property market slump. Concerns that the government may soon take action to cool down the market have been eased by official statements that the loose monetary policies will continue as part of economic stimulus measures.

As the optimists see it, there's no tomorrow.

Residence Huashan, a 52-unit luxury apartment project near the Hilton Shanghai in downtown Jing'an District, recently advertised units at prices averaging 90,000 yuan a square meter, one of the most expensive on the west side of the river.

The developer, Shanghai Ding Gu Real Estate Development Co Ltd, said market feedback has been robust, with a few units already booked.

A similar story is occurring in the villa market.

Sales of villas, which include stand-alone units, semi-detached houses and townhouses, have been on the rise for six consecutive months.

A total of 1,699 villas, covering a combined 427,000 square meters, were sold across the city in July, an increase of 113 units, or 37,000 square meters, compared with June, according to the country's leading real estate services provider, E-House (China) Holdings Ltd.

The real estate boom is beginning to entice more than just home buyers and traditional developers.

Last week, Red Dragonfly Group, a leading Chinese shoe maker based in Wenzhou in Zhejiang Province, announced it would soon launch Peninsula Villa, a high-end development in Shanghai's Pudong New Area, its first foray into the city's real estate market.

Stand-alone villas in the development will have a plot ratio of only 0.19, the lowest in Pudong, covering a land area of as large as 2,000 square meters each, compared with the 700 square meters usually found in Pudong.

Most industry analysts are predicting that luxury houses will continue to outperform the mass market because many people view property as a hedge against inflation.

"Wealthy people will always turn to purchasing houses of supreme quality and location to fight inflation," said Fu Qi, a senior analyst with E-House (China) Holdings Ltd. "We believe the strong momentum in the high end of the market is sustainable."

A total of 219,000 square meters of new luxury homes, priced above 40,000 yuan per square meter, were sold in Shanghai in the first seven months of this year, an increase of 45 percent from same period a year earlier.

Purchases of high-end houses in June and July accounted for about 3 percent of all home sales, up from 1.2 percent at the beginning of this year, according to E-House research.

"Star River, which won accolades for its earlier luxury projects in Beijing and Guangzhou, is impressing Shanghai now with its super success," said Jennifer Jiang. "Let's wait and see how long such a crazy boom can last."

Huge masterplan by Gensler around Yanan Donglu!










Does China's leading business city have what it takes to be a top-tier global financial center?

The Master Plan is a transformative and sustainable vision for the redevelopment of the Huangpu district of Puxi in Shanghai. The plan provides a rational framework for the transformation of the district that supports the overall vision of a modern Shanghai as a major global financial center.

The project design drew from studies of world global financial centers, including New York and London, to determine the physical elements that make prime financial centers attractive to businesses and talents. The key components of the Master Plan include the creation of mixed-use districts, with office, service apartment, retail and cultural facilities; the reliance on and full integration of public transportation into the master plan; and a carefully integrated preservation to tie the new infill development with the history of the district.

Because of its unique location and rich history, the Master Plan is more akin to a selective urban intervention strategy than to a major reconstruction of the entire area. The design team worked with local design institutes evaluating significance of all build environment on site. The district history played a key determinant role in shaping the plan, including the location of high rise towers to mark key gateways to the old City and to define the whole district on the Shanghai skyline. Selective preservation will transform unique historic neighbourhoods into mixed-use retail and cultural sub-districts. A major cultural institution on the Bund will transform the image of the district and Shanghai worldwide and become a catalyst for investment in the area.

I do agree today's business districts need a mix of institutional, recreational, cultural, and residential facilities in order to stay vibrant throughout the day and into the night. However, these are only planning aspects, but a lot of other policy and macro-factors cannot be controlled by planners. The key item in order to have a successful financial centre is free flow of capital. Until the yuan floats freely and becomes a major international currency, I don't see Shanghai being a major international financial centre, although it could easily be a huge domestic financial centre.

I am not a huge fan of the master plan there. Even though it looks nice from the sky, it should also look nice from the ground. I think it is ok to build skyscrapers there but only on a one by one basis. If you have these massively planned districts the place will end up looking like Beijing. Wide streets, lifeless squares, in convenient for pedestrians etc.

There will only be wide streets and lifeless squares if you plan it that way. Gensler's masterplan calls for vibrant retail streets lined by old preserved buildings and skyscrapers in between. Looks like a great plan to me-- in fact, it looks amazing.

What makes me hate this project more, is that--if I'm not mistaken--the original design was that bad-ass, gothic cathedral thing. That design was highly anticipated.

It's all right - they're going to paint it pink and make it throb at night. Kinda ancient Greece meets Star Wars. It'll fit right in.

Soar over the city on a seaplane joyride

By Lu Feiran | 2009-9-14 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

SIGHTSEEING flights over the city and coast could start next year as Shanghai Boyi Airlines has won approval to operate two seaplanes.

Twenty-minute flights are likely to cost between 180 yuan (US$26) and 200 yuan, airline officials said at the weekend.

Construction of an airport for the hydroplanes will begin soon at Sunny Beach in Fengxian District, and finish by 2011 at the latest, the airline said.

Company officials said they were planning to introduce two seaplanes, one with six seats and the other with 14.

Pilots will hold both seaplane and helicopter licenses but not a civil aviation license.

Flights will be limited to daylight hours, and each will reach no more than 210 kilometers an hour, a quarter of the speed of normal flights.

Boyi said flights could extend 30km from the coast, giving passengers fantastic views of landmarks such as Donghai Bridge, Yangshan Deep-Water Port and Hangzhou Bay Bridge.

Flights are planned along a figure-of-eight route, giving passengers the thrill of sharp turns and dives, which the company described as being like "a roller coaster in the air."

Future flights could extend to Putuo Mountain in Zhejiang Province.
