City thinks green in bike-only lanes plan

By Dong Zhen | 2009-10-20 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

SHANGHAI urban construction authorities said yesterday that they would set up more bicycle lanes citywide between major transport roads and hubs in order to expand the coverage of bike-rental services.

This will come as good news for green supporters and commuters alike.

The final trip home after alighting from public transport is a nuisance for many commuters.

This last stage was referred to by traffic planners as "the very last three kilometers," between homes, schools, or communities to traffic hubs, Xu Xuefeng, a Shanghai People's Congress delegate, said yesterday.

"Such a service will be convenient for a large number of commuters and important to the city's low-carbon ecological development," Xu said at a meeting with construction commission officials.

Commission officials said they had already started combing road conditions citywide in preparation for building bike-connection lanes between major streets, bus and Metro stations.

"Construction of support facilities, such as bike parking spots, will follow," the commission said in a statement.

The city government recently enacted a regulation setting up stricter restrictions on outdoor advertising.

Operators of low-cost bike-rental businesses are believed to have been hit by the new rule as no advertisements are allowed inside campuses and residential complexes.

The advertisements had been a source of income for these business operators.

Despite this hiccup, bike-rental businesses have been promised more support by the construction authorities.

The city's transport bureau told Congress delegates it would integrate bike-rental services in more of under-construction Metro stations, especially in outlying areas.

Shanghai started offering bike-rental services on a trial basis last year in Zhangjiang High-tech Park in Pudong.

Bund face-lift nears completion

2009-10-23 | NEWSPAPER EDITION





A riverfront promenade built between the Shanghai Bund's historic buildings and the Huangpu River is coming into shape as the 3,315-meter underground Bund Vehicle Passage project nears completion. The 5 billion yuan (US$730 million) project, which also includes the renovation of public facilities at the Bund, is designed to shift traffic underground and is expected to open to traffic in March next year ahead of the start of the Shanghai World Expo on May 1.

Makeover of Huaihai Road in the works

By Liang Yiwen | 2009-10-23 | NEWSPAPER EDITION


LUWAN District's Huaihai Road is upgrading its commercial businesses to compete with other downtown shopping areas, government officials said yesterday.

A 2.2-kilometer section of the street between Shaanxi Road S. and Xizang Road S. will be divided into four parts with sections for flagship stores, time-honored brands and trendy fashion outlets.

The restructuring aims to highlight the 109-year-old street's unique features such as its protected historical buildings and small boutique stores that are rented out by individual property owners.

"People first think about going to Nanjing Road W. to buy luxury goods or Xujiahui area for ordinary shopping," said a district official who asked not to be identified.

There are hundreds of stores ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 square meters each in Huaihai Road's main shopping area, which can't compete with the flashy malls in Xujiahui or Nanjing Road W. that cover hundreds thousands of square meters, the official said.

Zhang Jie, director of Luwan's commercial commission, said the street is too narrow and spread out compared with other shopping areas.

"We decided to divide the street into four areas with clear positions to make up for its flaws," Zhang said.

According to the plan, areas east of the north-south elevated road will mainly host flagship stores of famous brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Tiffany. This area will feature stores opening on to the street, unlike Nanjing Road W., where customers need to go inside a mall to shop at most upscale stores.

The transformation is expected to be finished before 2010 World Expo begins in May, officials said.

Areas from the North-South Elevated Road to Ruijin No. 2 Road will mainly accommodate trendy fashion outlets popular among young people. The change has already begun with stores such as H&M, C&A, Zara and Barbie now open.

Time-honored brand stores will occupy areas west of Ruijin No. 2 Road.

Government officials said that they would introduce favorable policies to encourage property owners to lease stores to brands that comply to the marketing strategy.

Good planning there! Keep the stores on the street not in a mall. I hope they can develop west of Ruijin Road. I live on Huaihai near Changshou road and I feel this area is in need of more retail especially restaurants.

These specialised makeovers on each district is really the way to improve the overall cityscape in shanghai. I heard they are doing a make-over in Hong Kou too near SiChuna road. Btw just heard that H&M flagship store is moving into SiChuan road next year.

Also they said they may build some landmark tower close to the Expo Area, likely in the new Pujiang area. And I think there's some long term proposal in Dalian Lu, but these are only "ghost proposals" imo. Nothing serious.

I live in Xuhui, but i think that Huangpu is the best. Just too expensive to live there unless I live in a slum.

New home buying sentiment stays firm
3 November 2009
Shanghai Daily

BUYING sentiment for new homes continued to be strong in Shanghai last month and the average price also remained high, according to a leading real estate agency.

Sales of new homes, excluding those designated for relocated residents under urban redevelopment projects, edged down slightly from September's 1.48 million to 1.47 million square meters in October, Shanghai Uwin Real Estate Information Services Co said yesterday.

The average price of new homes dipped to 16,780 yuan (US$2,456) per square meter last month, down by merely 0.65 percent from September.

"Across the city, about 300 residential developments registered a month-on-month price increase between September and October," said Lu Qilin, a researcher at Shanghai Uwin.

"Among them, nearly one third rose by more than 10 percent. Meanwhile, about 160 new housing projects suffered a decrease in prices."

Lu explained that the monthly dip in the average price was primarily due to more homes in suburban areas being sold during the period.

Uwin statistics showed that nearly 80 percent of new homes sold in the city last month, or 1.15 million square meters, are located beyond the Outer Ring Road, compared with about 60 percent in previous months.

Analysts attributed an inadequate supply of new homes as the major reason behind the current strong market momentum.

There were only about 1.26 million square meters of new housing projects for sale last month, compared with 1.5 million square meters in September and 1.58 million square meters in August.
