Shanghai is just such a fascinating monster of a city. With such an ocean of skyscrapers, how can they possibly maintain the infrastructural system for electricity, water, waste-water, people- and goods-transport. I am fascinated that it all works.
I have the same. It's absolutly fascinating. It's an evergrowing city that keeps expanding in size and height and it's also very chaotic. It symbolizes humanity itself. I wonder how Shanghai would look like in 70 years or so and how they will organize the city and the infrastructure.

Everything is new in Shanghai. When I had my work trip there I stayed in Pudong but had to go to the outer rim of the city, 1 to 1.5 hours by taxi each way, I think where the old airport was. With other cities you have it that the area goes shabbier the more you are away from the center. Not in Shanghai. It was utmost impressing that EVERYTHING is new, no matter where in this huge monster of a city I looked. They even painted the underside of bridges and elevated roads in new, fresh, bright colours. Everything is new and clean. This is my most remarkable experience of Shanghai.

I notice that new development has somewhat tried up in Shanghai. At least in Pudong. All towers to be constructed soon I remember is that new one by the old Shipyard (wow, that's specific, no? ). Do they consider Shanghai Tower to eat up most of the future demand?

Barely a year ago we had like six-seven towers being constructed at the same time in Lujiazui...(plus one or two supertalls)

New luxury retail malls planned
8 July 2010
Shanghai Daily

WHILE the three golden shopping centers along Nanjing Road W. - Plaza 66, Citic Square and Westgate Mall - have been long regarded as the city's premier luxury retail district, Huaihai Road M., coupled with a few more precincts on both sides of the Huangpu River, are now emerging as major competitors.

"With the rebirth of Hong Kong Plaza and Lippo Plaza, Huaihai Road M. is vying hard for the second major destination of luxury shopping in the city," said James Macdonald, head of research with Savills China, a leading international real estate services provider. "The long-established retail environment along the entire Huaihai Road will definitely offer it strong support."

Lippo Plaza reopened its doors at the end of April, showcasing flagship stores of two top-tier global retailers - Zegna and Louis Vuitton. And within a stone's throw, Hong Kong Plaza, while having only opened a number of stores including Coach, Tiffany's and Cartier, is planning for a grand opening sometime in the fourth quarter of this year, when more international brands are expected to be introduced.

The upgrading of Huaihai Road M. is not only limited to these two projects, however. A Hermes store is scheduled to open across the street sometime later this year and shopping malls including Infiniti Plaza and Shanghai Times Square are also undergoing a tenant mix reshuffle.

Being the closest competitor to Nanjing Road W., Huaihai Road M. is by no means alone as some other usurpers, both in Pudong and Puxi, have also proved their potential to be developed into future luxury shopping meccas in the city.

Lujiazui on the other side of the Huangpu River, with the brand-new Shanghai IFC Mall at its heart, is certainly in contention.

The six-story Shanghai IFC Mall, an integral part of IFC, Sun Hung Kai Property's first landmark development in the city, unveiled its goods just a few days before the official opening of World Expo in May.

With a total gross floor area of more than 92,900 square meters, the mall will house the largest collection of international luxury brands in Shanghai, according to developer SHKP.

Top-tier brands

Of these brands, 15 percent are debuting in China and 40 percent are entering Shanghai for the first time. So far, more than 20 top-tier brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Cartier, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo and Tiffany have already secured space on the ground floor.

However, given the dearth of other sizeable retail projects in the area at the moment, Lujiazui will have to wait for the completion of the retail components of Shanghai Tower and CITIC's Lujiazui New Financial District project before being able to compare itself to Huaihai Road M. and Nanjing Road W., industry analysts say.

The Bund and the Hongqiao area in western Changning District might be the other two contenders.

For instance, Waitanyuan on the Bund, scheduled to be built into a landmark lifestyle, arts and fashion zone in Shanghai in about two years, has already become a new magnet for retailers from around the world.

The area, sited along the northern stretch of the Bund and mainly surrounded by the Huangpu River to the east, Suzhou Creek to the north, Sichuan Road M. to the west and Dianchi Road to the south, will have up to 100,000 square meters of retail space in operation by the end of next year, according to latest research released by Jones Lang LaSalle Shanghai.

"The Waitanyuan project, whose first phase mainly consists of Rock Bund, Park 33, Yi Feng Building and Bund 27 as well as the Peninsula Shanghai, will grow into another major retail hub in the city by the end of next year," said Eugene Tang, head of retail for central China operations at Jones Lang LaSalle.

"With unique architectural and historic elements rooted in the Bund area, retailers from around the world have shown keen interest to expand their footprint there, and in the top-tier segment in particular we can already find big names such as Giorgio Armani, Prada, Chanel, Piaget, Berluti, Chaumet and Ralph Lauren."

Another likely candidate for expansion is Hongqiao area with the planned completion of the L'Avenue building and the Japanese Takashimaya department store, both scheduled in 2012.

A US$500-million joint development by Stanley Ho, the king of Macau's gambling empire, and Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH, the L'Avenue project, at the intersection of Xianxia Road and Zunyi Road, will house all 60 luxury brands in the LVMH Group as well as other leading international brands upon completion.

"It is an international trend that luxury retail precincts will emerge in more locations across metropolitan cities like Shanghai as a result of the increasing number of affluent people amid economic growth," said Raymond Wei, director and head of retail department, DTZ East China. "In most cases, luxury retail hubs emerge initially in top-tier CBD areas and will gradually extend their footprint in other locations as more wealthy communities are established across the city."

Shanghai flirts with legacy of 1920s heyday

SHANGHAI, July 9 (Reuters) - Leggy dancers sporting nipple tassels and lace suspenders sashay on stage, while a cheering audience hoots and whistles from red-velvet boudoir-style booths.

This is no seedy strip joint, evading the watchful eye of China's ruling communist party -- but the country's first modern burlesque club.

Chinatown, popular for its showgirls and cabaret style performances, is one of the latest attempts to recreate the glamour of Shanghai during its heydey in the 1920s and 1930s when the city was a thriving trading port and colonial enclave.

Shanghai was transformed from an idyllic fishing village into a city of late night jazz clubs and dance halls during Western occupation in the 1800s when it became home to British bankers and French artists.

The city's melting pot of cultures was what prompted New York nightclub veteran Norman Gosney, 62, founder of Chinatown, to open his new venture in Shanghai, instead of London or Hong Kong.

"Shanghai has a reputation as the 'Paris of the Orient' and we thought it would make a great backdrop. Shanghai is certainly the city with the most promise at this time," said the grey-haired Briton.

Gosney's sentiment is echoed through this year's flood of new luxury hotels, private clubs and global brands like Apple opening flagship stores, as more businesses set their sights on Shanghai.

Authorities in Shanghai, already China's most modern city, have gradually unshackled many of the constraints during the Communist revolution by allowing clubs like Chinatown to operate but maintain they must still abide by party rules.

Anna Patterson, Chinatown's managing director, says the club has to make sure all the shows are approved by the local government prior to the actual performance.

"We regularly video our shows and rehearsals and translate our scripts and lyrics to songs," she said.

MORE NIGHTLIFE

The local government is trying to promote Shanghai as an international centre, using the six-month World Expo to splash out $58 billion on the event and revamping most of the city.

Albert Loh, general manager of Yu Shanghai, a new supper club and bar in the historic Yuyuan area, was commissioned by the district government this year to bring more nightlife to part of Shanghai's old city.

"It is a big challenge for us to come here as there is a perception that nobody comes here at night," said Loh.

Loh said Yu Shanghai, housed in a 600-year-old Ming architecture building, tried to preserve as much of the exterior facade to complement the neighbouring 'shikumen' style lane houses combining Western and Chinese architecture.

An increasing number of luxury and boutique hotels have also opened along the city's Bund waterfront promenade.

The Peninsula hotel opened with an extravagant launch party in March, marking a homecoming after almost six decades for the Kadoorie family, which has its roots in Shanghai after they emigrated from Baghdad in the 1880s.

"Over the past 55 years we have waited, patiently and with expectation, for the opportunity to return," Michael Kadoorie, chairman of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels Ltd based in Hong Kong, told Reuters.

"We are back, once again on the Bund, with The Peninsula Shanghai, a powerful expression of our proud heritage, of the vibrancy of present day Shanghai and our confidence in the future of this great city."

The Peninsula will be followed by Swatch Group's Swatch Art Peace Hotel, the Fairmont Peace Hotel and the Waldorf Astoria, all expected to open by September.

Nick Hayek Jr, CEO of the Swatch Group, said he chose Shanghai for Swatch's new hotel and art venue because of the city's history and heritage architecture.

"Shanghai is not just the Pearl of the Orient, it is one of the pearls of the world," he said.

Twisting Tower in Shanghai
http://www.evolo.us/architecture/twi...r-in-shanghai/

Weilun Xu and Chenyi Zhang from the Tongji University in Shanghai explained their vision for a novel skyscraper for modern China:

“A facade in architecture is not only a part of the architecture itself but also an interface with the world outside. Therefore, a facade can well be seen as a medium that integrates the inner space and the outside space. This design is not only symbolic of the traditional Chinese culture but also a practice of new technologies attempting to highlight natural light in terms of time and space.

This high-rise is situated in the most prosperous economic center of Shanghai. As an economic center of a huge developing country, Shanghai is developing at an exponential speed. The old city as well as the life-style of the old city is disappearing swiftly. Unfortunatley, the demise of chinese life-style may result in oblivion of the traditional Chinese aesthetics. This building is aimed at producing a subtle sense of Chinese beauty like a cheongsam flower. It studies the relations between sunlight and time to achieve geometric variables based on the instant relations between different surfaces.”
