I dont know about Shanghai suburbs. But I have seen and lived in some great vibrant Beijing modern suburbs with many stores, convenience stores, restaurants, and a supermarket you name it. Very good urban planning. Its hard to see the reality on the ground from just a model.

Shanghai targets home speculators
The Standard
Friday, October 08, 2010

Shanghai has become the latest city to follow the central government and implement tough new rules to ease home prices and crack down on speculation and land hoarding.

Under the new measures, developers are required to pre-pay up to 5 percent of the transaction price as a land appreciation tax, if the average selling prices of the homes they sell is double from a year ago.

The pre-paid tax is currently at 2 percent.

The long-debated property tax was not included in the new measures.

But the municipal government said that it will "actively" prepare to become a pilot city for property tax reform.

Another measure allows each family to buy only one new flat - either in the primary or secondary market, the Shanghai government said in a statement detailing 12 new tightening rules.

Each family will be allowed to apply for up to 600,000 yuan (HK$694,850) for their first home from the national housing accumulation fund - a low-rate mortgage loan that banks match with a buyer's mandatory savings. Employees and employers contribute to the fund every month, much the same way Hongkongers pay a portion of their earnings into the mandatory provident fund.

The loan cap for those wishing to upgrade is 400,000 yuan.

Shanghai will provide 1,100 hectares of sites this year - 70 percent of which will be earmarked for affordable houses and small to medium-sized flats. A total of one million affordable houses will be built over the next five years.

All departments and districts in Shanghai have been ordered to comply with Beijing's rules, announced on September 29.

The number of home sales in Shanghai's primary market slumped around 40 percent during the weeklong National Day holiday that ended yesterday, compared with the same period a month ago, as potential buyers adopted a wait- and-see attitude, said Clement Luk Shing, deputy managing director of Centaline (China) Property Consultants.

But there is still demand for homes, especially for low- and middle-end flats, he added.

Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng delivers a speech at the 22nd International Business Leaders' Advisory Council yesterday.

Taking aim at housing market
Created: 2010-10-11 1:23:29
Author:Zhang Fengming

SHANGHAI will keep its feet pressed down hard on the brakes to rein in rocketing home prices in a bid to steer the housing market back to its fundamentals to help ordinary people afford a home to live in rather than to invest or to speculate, Mayor Han Zheng said yesterday.

"It's an indisputable fact that home prices in Shanghai are too high," Han said at a press conference after the 22nd International Business Leaders' Advisory Council. "The over-speculation distorts the market and hurt the interests of common consumers."

"The Shanghai government has a clear target on its housing measure - to steer the market back to its fundamentals," Han said, adding that housing is an economic and social issue.

Last Thursday, Shanghai unveiled its latest measure to curb housing speculation when it joined Beijing to cap the number of homes a family can purchase. Under the measure, a family is entitled to buy only one home in the city "for a certain period of time." This policy applies to both new and existing homes.

Another brake the government is considering is a new housing tax.

The latest action came after previous cooling-off efforts launched since mid-April, including higher down payment, have yet to cut house prices.

The average price kept climbing in Shanghai, fueled by robust sales of mid to high-end houses. It edged up 0.4 percent to 21,230 yuan (US$3,178) per square meter in September, rising for the third straight month.

New home sales also rose to a nine-month high in the city in September amid a robust supply. Sales of new homes rose 82 percent over August to 1.33 million square meters last month, the highest monthly volume since January.

Shanghai floats plan to be Asian cruise center
14 October 2010
Shanghai Daily

SHANGHAI has ambitions to sail to a leading position in the cruise market and join Singapore and Hong Kong as one of Asia's top three cruise centers, city's tourism officials said.

Under a five-year development plan drafted by the Shanghai Municipal Tourism Administration, local shipyards will be upgraded with core technology to help them design and manufacture luxury cruise liners by 2015, said Shen Shanzhou, vice chairman of the administration.

"We will also work on stimulus measures to encourage domestic cruise companies to set up their headquarters in Shanghai as well as attract one or two foreign companies to locate their regional offices here," Shen added.

Shanghai Port is forecast to handle 300,000 passengers this year, nearly doubling the figure in 2009, said Dao Shuming, chairman of the administration, as he spoke during the China Cruise Industry Development Summit 2010 in Shanghai yesterday.

City greener ... but facing challenges
19 October 2010
Shanghai Daily

EVEN though Shanghai has made great progress on environmental protection, the city is still facing increased pressure on pollution control, say green watchdogs.

Large numbers of industrial facilities - including chemical plants, high population density, rivers that are vulnerable to pollution and industrial sites located too close to housing are some of the problems facing the city, officials from Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau said yesterday.

They warned that the city is too reliant on imported energy and its current level of environmental protection can't meet the requirements of local economic and social development.

The bureau was drawing its conclusions in an environmentally friendly city initiative project, undertaken in cooperation with the United Nations.

Since 2000, Shanghai has invested at least 3 percent of its gross domestic product in environmental projects.

Disneyland project ready to roll
21 October 2010
Shanghai Daily

THE construction of the Shanghai Disneyland park in the Pudong New Area will kick off next month, following the closure of the Shanghai World Expo on October 31.

The land for phase one is ready for use and two of the total of seven roads planned for the project have passed checks, according to yesterday's National Business Daily.

The deadline for bids for the construction of the theme park and other support facilities is close to an end while negotiations between Chinese and United States parties are also in the final stretch, the report quoted project director Fan Xiping, deputy secretary general of the city government, as saying.

Shanghai Daily's requests for an interview about the progress of construction went unanswered by the Walt Disney Company in Shanghai yesterday.

Overseen by the Shanghai Shendi Group Co, a Sino-US joint venture that was established in August, phase one of the project will be completed by 2014, and will include a theme park and other attractions covering a total area of 1.5 square kilometers.

When it is fully finished, the resort will occupy up to 8 square kilometers, making it the largest of the company's six amusement parks throughout the world, said the newspaper.

The Shanghai government is expecting the landmark deal to have a strong impact on the city's economy, including the creation of tens of millions of jobs and the boosting of relating industries.

But doubts have been expressed about the mega project. It is expected to cost around 24.48 billion yuan (US$3.69 billion) and some business analysts have said that with more than half the existing theme parks on the Chinese mainland were in the red last year, it would remain a big challenge for the newcomer to just break even.

Many were also concerned about the effect it would have on its Hong Kong counterpart, which is a quarter the size of the one planned for Shanghai.

Opened in 2005, Hong Kong Disneyland reported almost 1.3 billion yuan in losses last year. It could face even more pressure in the future due to the fact that nearly a third of its visitors are from the Chinese mainland.

It's so great that Shanghai Disneyland park will be the largest one throughout the world. I think this project will be successful in the future due to many reasons.

Well .. Hong Kong Disneyland is still expanding, and the present park is only one of many phases as well.

Housing prices still high
26 October 2010
Shanghai Daily

THE average price of new homes remained above 20,000 yuan (US$3,000) per square meter in Shanghai for the fifth consecutive week even though transactions declined.

A total of 319,000 square meters of new homes were sold across the city during the week ended yesterday, up 8 percent from a week earlier, Shanghai Uwin Real Estate Information Services Co said yesterday. Uwin said the average price decreased 3 percent in the week to 23,086 yuan per square meter.

The figures exclude homes built for relocated residents under urban redevelopment plans.

"The weekly average price soared above 23,000 yuan per square meter for the second time in a month as a result of strong sales at some luxury developments," said Lu Qilin, a researcher at Uwin. "While the transaction volume decreased in the city over the past two weeks, sales at projects with a selling price of more than 40,000 yuan per square meter increased in the period."

Star River in Minhang District, for example, became the best-seller by area last week after 78 units, totaling 23,609 square meters, were sold for an average 47,347 yuan per square meter. Yanlord Townhouse, a luxury development in New Jiangwan Town of Yangpu District in the city's northeast, sold 64 units, totaling 13,738 square meters, with an average selling price of 58,945 yuan per square meter.

For the week, sales of new homes priced above 40,000 yuan per square meter continued to rise, up 19 percent from a week earlier, Uwin said.

Masterplan proposals for the north side of Suzhou Creek.

Earlier this year they announced 31 proposals, but I couldn't find images. The finalists are: COX, Gensler, H&D, RTKL and SBA.

Somebody posted SBA renders. Since he didn't credit the source, I wont credit him either.
