Anyone know what they plan to do with the dome? Is it ornamental or there'll be a meeting room inside?

Did I see glass on the dome instead of roof tiles? It seems to me it is a glass dome.

Shanghai land plot sets China cost record
9 February 2010
Shanghai Daily

A PARCEL of land sold at auction in downtown Shanghai yesterday became the most expensive piece of real estate in China.

The 13,709-square-meter plot in Huangpu District has an interesting history.

It was first sold to Nanjing Suning Real Estate Development Co Ltd for a record 4.4 billion yuan (US$644.55 million) in August 2007, but was returned to the government a year later.

Yesterday it fetched 3.41 billion yuan after going under the hammer for the second time. The per gross floor area, or GFA, price for the plot, designated for retail and office use, was 51,820 yuan per square meter.

The previous national record was set by Shanghai Zendai Property Ltd just a week ago when the privately owned developer agreed to pay 9.22 billion yuan, or a GFA price of 34,148 yuan per sqm, for a 57,000-sqm parcel near the Bund.

A joint enterprise, with 51 percent held by Shanghai New Huangpu (Group) Co Ltd and 49 percent by Shanghai New World Co Ltd, both state-owned conglomerates, acquired the Huangpu District plot yesterday.

In the process, it beat Chinese Estates Group and Wharf (Holdings) Ltd, two real estate giants from Hong Kong.

The parcel of land, located within Jiangxi Road M. to the east, Nanjing Road E. to the south, Henan Road M. to the west and Tianjin Road tothe north, opened for bidding yesterday at a high starting price of 3 billion yuan.

Total GFA space for the project is 65,800 sqm above ground and 40,000 sqm below.

"The land price, the highest in the country, should be acceptable if we consider its unparalleled location," said Xue Jianxiong, an analyst with E-House (China) Holdings Ltd, the country's largest integrated real estate services provider.

"I'm pretty upbeat about this project as prices of prime retail and office properties in the city are expected to go northward over the coming three to five years amid the city's continuous economic growth."

Within a stone's throw from the busy Nanjing Road pedestrian mall, prime retail properties built on the site, for instance, might be able to fetch as much as 100,000 yuan per sqm, according to industry analysts.

Market attention

The land parcel attracted huge market attention in 2007 when Suning Real Estate, a subsidiary of Suning Universal Group, agreed to pay 4.4 billion yuan, or a per GFA price of nearly 67,000 yuan per sqm.

Just a year later, the parcel was in the news again as Suning said in a statement to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange that it had reached an agreement with the Huangpu District government on a reimbursement for the plot.

Suning didn't suffer any loss after withdrawing from the deal because construction of a Metro station, which sits right under the plot, had hampered the timely delivery of the land to the company, initially set for April 2008.

The Intl. Cruise Ship Terminal:

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...pload_id=13565
Quote:
Cruise Terminal 'Chandelier' boasts world's first in suspended cable construction

Due to be completed in May of this year, the Shanghai International Cruise Terminal will be capable of accommodating up to three 80,000 tonne cruise ships at any one time and handle an expected passenger flow of over 1.5 million people annually. Designed by Sparch, the Asian arm of the Archial Group plc, the mixed-use development will occupy a total floor area of more than 260,000 sq m and comprise 80 percent commercial use, and 20 percent public facilities, entertainment and retail outlets.

The centre piece of the terminal has been dubbed the ‘Shanghai Chandelier’. With its 40m-high glass-clad portal, the Chandelier overlooks the public park and waterfront where city dwellers and tourists can congregate in an open space for festivals and events. Looking up from the ground, a view of several floating cafes, restaurants and bars suspended on cables beneath a seven-storey steel truss will greet passersby. This is the very first suspended cable construction of its type in the world.

This development also represents a first in Shanghai for sustainability, incorporating River Water Cooling Technology – utilising water from the Huang Pu River as a refrigerant to cool and thereby greatly reduce the buildings’ energy consumption during the summer months.

John Curran, project director in Sparch’s Shanghai Studio said: “Shanghai is undoubtedly the main driver of China’s fast-growing economy. Sparch is honoured to play our part in designing and developing the new Shanghai International Cruise Terminal commercial and entertainment site, which will provide another gateway for people on business or leisure to experience this thriving metropolis.”

Reopening date for Peace Hotel after restoration
By Lu Feiran | 2010-3-2 | ONLINE EDITION



THE Fairmont Peace Hotel is due to reopen on March 28 after three years' restoration but specific plans are still under discussion, said Shanghai Jinjiang International Hotels Group today.

The daily standard room price may rise to US$300 and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts will manage the 104-year-old hotel, which closed for restoration in April 2007.

The north wing in Nanjing Road East, first built in 1929, will keep its original appearance while the south wing will become a Swatch store.

Celebrities of the 1930s such as actor Charlie Chaplin and writer George Bernard Shaw once stayed in the hotel.

Lujiazui Financial Building has been completed, and purchased by the Development Bank of Singapore it seems. Gran Meliá Hotel right behind, the Spanish chain opened it a few months ago.

No thread. Nobody cares about that project because we all hate it I think. 160m according to ss.cn diagrams, likely to be completed this year.
