Shanghai Hongbang International Tower, around 42 floors.




Shanghai Hongbang International Tower is located in the triangle area where Tanggu Road, Emei Road, and Wusong Road meet, in Hongkou District. It covers an area of 6,598 square meters within the site planning property line. The existing floor area is 87,000 square meters, it is a rebuilding to the existing building. create a representative icon for the rapidly emerging and developing Shanghai Hongbang Real Estate Co.,Ltd, so as to make this existing tower the first building standing at the “International Shipping Thoroughfare” of Shanghai North Bund.

The following are our several design philosophies:

Our design aims at enhancing the relationship of this tower with its surrounding roads, existing buildings, possible architectures in the future, and the landscape belt along the Huang Pu River. The design of this building will function as a trend of urban development structure of this region in the future.
This project is to endow this building with a new clear orientation. While creating the modernized office space, the newly renovated building will become the eye-catching focus in this region.
Through renovation of the existing single building, the space with one main tower and two relatively separate podiums are created. By connecting the podiums and the hall on the second floor of the main building, we reorganized the transportation of the complex and raised the efficiency of the modern office building.
This design perfectly shows the interdependence while having some emphasis among these three component structures The podiums have been renovated with tilting curved glass walls and look up the main tower with a stable form, which resembles the sailor’s showing respect to the sail. This exquisite design reviews the past of the building geographical location, and looks into perspective of both stretching sides of the Huang Pu River through our special design of a “sail”. Our design employs this concept that bases itself on the past and exhibits the future to define the spirit of the entire architectural complex.

An extreme sports centre for activities such as rock climbing and bungee jumping will be cantilevered over the quarry and accessed by special lifts from the water level of the hotel.

Baoshan KF Stone project, 300m+. I think it's an old proposal, but I had never heard of this before. Baoshan district is in very in the north part of the city.





Shanghai Wusong Harbor Area Plan
Developer: Shanghai Wusong Port Development Co.,Ltd

The Shanghai Wusong Harbor International Passenger Transportation Centre is located in the Baoshan District, of Shanghai at the intersection of the Shanghai outer highway ring and the international shipping line of the Huangpu River. The design concept incorporates a modern harbor operation and management, adopts a style and structure different from the traditional civic shipping docks, and creates an urban development supported by the port activity.

The Baoshan Port integrates international shipping, commerce, tourism, business and residences. A large commercial space enhances the development of the internationally renowned harbor area. The passenger transportation centre is designed to serve sea routes, roads and subway networks and displays the power of an international transportation port on the urban cityscape. A secluded quiet area on the north is where a series of apartments are designed to meet the residential demand. A fitness club, hospital, kindergarten, restaurants and commercial buildings add richness and vitality to the design. A three hundred metre high navigation building is a new beacon that welcomes international tourists arriving by cruise ship. Large-scale commercial buildings with wave-like roofs reflect the sunshine during the day and glow at night to create a sea-like impression. The Wusong Harbor is the new symbol and a golden gate of Shanghai as the major international port city for China.

Site area:245,000 sq.m
Gross floor area:493,700 sq.m
F.A.R:2.0

More renders of Expo Area supertall. This is the same project as World Abundant Culture Center (560m), just another proposal of that never built supertall. However, since they rejected this basically because it wouldn't be finished by 2010 expo, I guess they might relaunch it after world expo celebration.

I am simply overwhelmed by the amount of construction going on in Shanghai, they just never seem to stop: even after the former mayor was sacked for using too much money for skyscrapers, allegedly.

Very few big projects have been approved in the last 12 months though. Almost every project you see in this thread was firstly announced before mid 2006.

That's actually a very poor design compared to the London Eye or Singapore Flyer. Perhaps it's best if they don't build this. However those asserting that Shanghai is somehow in a different class in terms of taste from Dubai should note that cluster of appallingly tacky green glass buildings in Pudong, the revolting Super Brand Mall in Pudong, the hideous Oriental Pearl Tower, and the comically awful Bund Sightseeing Tunnel. There are aesthetic masterpieces in Shanghai such as the SWFC, Jin Mao, Tomorrow Square, The Shanghai Opera House in People's Square, Andreu's Pudong Airport terminal etc, but there have been plenty of architectural atrocities as well. I think Dubai's projects are a comparable mixture of good and bad.

If you're going to build a wheel then make it beautiful like this one:
