Found this proposal at http://www.grigoriandesign.com/ Maybe it's a stale project, no idea. Never seen it before.

The 3rd proposal has around 63 floors!

Zorg, there is a huge hole on the site where that proposal is. I was walking around there the other day wondering what they are going to do with that land. Any of those proposals look nice.

Official pop. number now exceeds 20 million. I wonder what the actual population figure is.

City population eclipses 20m amidst baby boom

By Li Xinran | 2009-12-25 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

SHANGHAI'S population has surpassed 20 million, including 260,000 people from overseas, according to information released by the city's senior advisers.

The Shanghai committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference said more than 20.8 million people were now living in Shanghai.

The total number of registered residents reached nearly 14 million by the end of November, up about 3 percent from a year ago, it said.

The city's mobile population is down 2.37 percent from a year ago to 6.56 million and the number of people from overseas dropped 10.04 percent during the same period despite a 1.04 percent increase in the overall total.

This year's permanent population in Shanghai will increase by 0.3 percent, or 220,000, from 18.88 million last year, according to the Shanghai Population and Family Planning Commission.

In addition to births, about 50,000 children and adults were expected to join the city's permanent population, the commission said.

Last year, the city's population grew year on year by 0.27 percent, the Shanghai Statistics Bureau said.

Shanghai has a total of 11.29 million rooms registered, according to a city survey carried out in July focusing on both the city's housing and population.

Shanghai population authorities expect about 165,000 infants to be born among city residents this year, close to last year's figure and continuing a baby boom that started in 2007 and may last for another eight to 10 years.

Despite the surge in births, an increasing number of people say they want smaller families because of the high cost of child raising, the desire to continue the "double incomes, child-free" lifestyle, according to an earlier survey by the commission.

In the first eight months of this year, the city welcomed about 110,000 babies - 59,700 delivered by registered residents and 50,300 by out-of-towners who have lived in Shanghai for more than six months.

In 2006, the annual birth rate of the permanent population was 0.747 percent, and 134,201 babies were born. In 2007 this climbed to 0.907 percent with 166,600 births. Last year, the birth rate was 0.889 percent, with about the same number of infants born as in 2007.

Wow, so they might start it soon. Did you see any poster, etc? Maybe the name of the developer?

Again? It did already in 2003

Anyway, neither of these articles includes an estimation of unregistered inhabitants. Therefore the real population is probably above 25 million.

yeah just keep guessing these figures are actual extrapolations and the most probable figure estimating the unregistered population.


You must realise25 million is just insanely huge something too much for any city to have .Have you heard of australia when you say 25 million are talking about the population of an entire vast nation like australia

I don't see any problem. Multicored, totally decentralised cities can afford a barely unlimited population.

What's the building in the left of the photo, who has a Chinese flag on the top?

And do you think there are any chance of building in Shanghai a tower higher than Burj Dubai in this decade?

I don't think so. Shanghai seems to have slowed down building skyscrapers and is focusing more on subways. I think it probably already has enough office space to go around. I'd venture to say that Shanghai already has the same amount of office space with New York City, and it has a smaller economic scale. The skyscrapers do not look as dense only because they spread out around the whole city.

Hi, I'm new here. Does someone have any information about this building?



It's next to the Shanghai Fortune tower in Pudong. It's very near to Grand Center.

On this picture, it's in front of the Shanghai Fortune tower. The picture is not up 2 date because you can't see this building yet:
