By the way, what can you tell us about the Suzhou Creek rumor? In gaoloumi they say they'll build 1x600m and 2x400m there, but as usual they never post sources.
You can just consider it as rumor ,there is no official sourse.
The only evidence is that a news report once mentioned that Zhabei Government wanted to build a 600+ on the creek. But no further information.
It is just a very confidential propose

Safety checks show failings
20 November 2010
Shanghai Daily

A series of inspections focusing on fire control and safety in workplaces was launched yesterday across the city's construction sites, residential compounds, schools, hospitals and other public buildings.

Despite the tragic example set by Monday's inferno, some construction sites were still found to have poor fire-safety standards. And some residential buildings, especially older ones, had potential fire risks, as the hallways were packed with obstacles, inspectors said.

The housing bureau said a team of 100 workers completed the first round of random checks at local residential compounds. There are about 10,800 housing complexes in Shanghai and the housing authorities' blanket inspection will continue for a week.

Meanwhile, all 4,600 construction sites of new buildings were ordered to pause for two hours yesterday morning to make safety checks. Inspectors from the city construction and transport authorities also paid spot checks.

Some sites still did not meet basic fire control requirements.

"I don't know how to use a fire extinguisher," said a worker on an office-building project on Shangzhong Road, Xuhui District, when randomly picked for questioning by an inspector yesterday morning.

The site downed tools for the temporary suspension at 9am as ordered by authorities and workers had just finished a "training lesson" to improve their fire-safety awareness when the inspectors arrived.

By training, the workers meant a speech delivered by a manager who read the notice issued by local authorities urging for better fire control efforts, as well as highlighting basic guidelines to prevent fires.

But the workers, who come from different parts of China, said their manager had spoken in such a heavy dialect and low voice that they "hardly heard a thing from his talk" before the "training" ended.

A major safety defect spotted at the construction site was that the workers had failed to place flammable materials at a distance as required by the work safety rules.

The site stored acetylene and oxygen containers in neighboring rooms. The safety rules require such materials be kept separately while the oxygen containers be away from each other at a minimum of 3 to 5 meters. The project's company, Ye Zhi Feng Construction, was served a warning notice to rectify the problem within 24 hours and to also improve the workers' training.

The 28-story building burnt on Monday was undergoing renovation to its exterior walls and was covered in scaffolding, safety nets and heat insulation materials, when a welding spark caused the whole building to go up in flames. The fire is so far being blamed on lax safety supervision and a mistake by welders.

Home sales halt 5-week fall
23 November 2010
Shanghai Daily

BUYING sentiment for new homes rebounded in Shanghai for the first time in six weeks and average price continued to stay at high levels due to robust sales of mid- to high-end projects.

New home sales jumped 34.6 percent to 214,000 square meters last week, terminating a five-week decline since mid-October, Shanghai Uwin Real Estate Information Services Co said. The figure excluded houses built for relocated residents under urban redevelopment plans.

"Abundant supply released during the previous seven-day period triggered home sales last week," said Lu Qilin, a researcher at Uwin. "In particular, Baoshan District, where new home supply jumped notably during the previous week, registered the highest transaction volume between November 15 and November 21 among local counterparts."

More than 44,000 square meters of new houses were sold in outlying Baoshan last week, immediately followed by Songjiang and Nanhui districts, which each secured new home sales of more than 24,000 and 21,000 square meters, respectively, according to Uwin statistics.

Average price, meanwhile, rose 9.8 percent from a week earlier to 23,011 yuan (US$3,465) per square meter, remaining above the 20,000-yuan barrier for nine straight weeks.

One residential project near Zhongshan Park in Changning District concluded sales of 95 apartments, or 11,873 square meters, last week for an average price of 44,321 yuan per square meter while another development in Daning in Zhabei District recorded sales of 67 units at an average price of 33,552 yuan per square meter. The average price of both these projects more than doubled from about two years ago, Uwin statistics showed.

A latest industry research conducted by Century 21 China Real Estate, operator of the city's second-largest estate chain, found that the average price of new homes continued to climb, particularly in the high-end sector.

After tracking new residential projects with a price tag of more than 50,000 yuan per square meter and registering sales in both October and this month, Century 21 found that some 80 percent of them had already raised their prices by between 7 and 12 percent compared to October.

New incinerator to open in 2013
Created: 2010-11-24 1:45:25

SHANGHAI is soon to have its third and biggest incineration plant, located next to the coastal Laogang garbage landfill site which processes most of the city's daily trash.

The Laogang incineration plant is due to be complete by the end of 2012 and open in 2013, the manager of the project said yesterday.

It will burn 3,000 tons of trash every day by its first phase, with capacity doubled in expansions. The two existing incinerators deal with 2,500 tons of trash a day.

Meanwhile, garbage sorters could be helping Shanghai families separate their trash for recycling within a few years, according to the local Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

Employing sorters is one initiative for reducing daily garbage output authorities are considering.

Accurate garbage separation will reduce the amount of garbage waiting to be processed, and ensure a less environmentally harmful trash burning operation, according to the environmental watchdog.

Large amounts of liquid and oil contained in food waste left among other trash make it more difficult to control burning temperatures, increasing pollution concerns.

The government has decided to build or expand dedicated storage sites in more downtown areas and deploy staff there to remove kitchen leftovers from the daily trash before they are transported to the processing plants.

And trained staff could be sent to neighborhoods to sort out kitchen trash as soon as it is dumped.

The city now is able to separate 620 tons of kitchen waste from the total 20,000-ton garbage output a day.

It is planned that by the end of next year 800 tons of leftovers could be set aside for treatment, said Huang Xinghua, deputy director with the Greenery and Sanitation Bureau.

Cleaner water from city's taps
Created: 2010-11-25 1:13:12, Updated: 2010-11-25 1:14:09
Shanghai Daily


A worker walks through a pumping station which is part of Shanghai's new major water supply from the Qingcaosha Reservoir. Main construction was completed yesterday and the reservoir will eventually supply about 10 million people in 11 districts and the Pudong New Area with water from the Yangtze.

Five million Shanghai residents should soon have access to higher quality tap water after the Qingcaosha Reservoir in the Yangtze River comes into operation next Wednesday.

But they might notice a slight muddy smell for just over a month during the changeover from the current reservoir on the Huangpu River, water authorities said.

Main construction finished yesterday on the 70 square kilometer Qingcaosha Reservoir near Changxing Island that will provide cleaner water for about 10 million residents, or around half the city's permanent population, by the middle of June next year.

About 4.2 million people in Yangpu, Hongkou, Zhabei, Luwan, Jing'an, Huangpu districts and part of Putuo district will notice a smell from the water until around January 15, Zhang Jiayi, director of the Shanghai Water Authority, told a press conference yesterday.

It would be because the four main water plants in the districts would have to use water from further down the Huangpu River temporarily during the changeover rather than the current upstream supply, he said.

To ensure water safety, the plants would add additional activated carbon powder during processing, said Gu Jinshan, deputy general manager of Shanghai Chengtou Corp, the major utilities company that owns most of the city's water plants.

The water authority would also take more water from Taihu Lake in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, to boost the quality, said Zhang.

"The authority will monitor the water condition around clock during the period and inform the residents in time in case any emergency occurred," Zhang said.

Over the next month or so, the authority will also be renovating pipelines linking water resources and water plants around the districts. The current pipes have been in use for 23 years.

By June 15, about 10 million residents in Changning, Xuhui, Luwan, Jing'an, Huangpu, Hongkou and Yangpu districts as well as parts of the Pudong New Area, Putuo, Zhabei, Minhang and Qingpu districts will drink the cleaner water from the reservoir.

People in other parts of Qingpu and Minhang districts as well as part of Songjiang, Jinshan and Fengxian districts will continue using water from the Huangpu River.

About 750,000 residents in the Pudong New Area might notice cloudy tap water from next Wednesday because the new supply will be running in the opposite direction to the previous one and might wash out scale that had formed inside the pipes, Gu said.

But he said that would last for two days at the most.

The 17 billion yuan (US$2.56 billion) reservoir project will protect residents from the influence of the salt water tides that occur in winter and spring, as the reservoir can more easily be shut to prevent the salt tide at the Yangtze River mouth from getting in, said Zhang.

Its water storage is adequate to sustain the city's consumption for up to 68 days from the current 10 days at the Chenhang Reservoir that also gets its water from the Yangtze.

A 5-kilometer buffer area around the intake of the reservoir is being monitored around the clock to ensure the reservoir can be shut in time.

Salt water pours into the Yangtze River mouth every year from October to April, threatening quality in the city's waterways and reservoirs.

Chongming Island will use water from the Yangtze from 2015 after the construction of another reservoir to serve an additional 1.5 million residents, Zhang said.

The current pipelines linking to the Huangpu are to remain as a backup.

yeah, i hope they build something Chinese for a change. They need to stop 'trying' to look futuristic and too innovative. We might end up with a complete mess like some of the proposals up there look. modern and sleek should be the way of the future for Shanghai and most Chinese cities, not deformed looking boxes and western architecture.

You didn't post any single link, as usual in those forums. Nobody can check where you got those renders from, if they are real, if they were really published by the studios you posted, or if they were made by a skilled photoshopper instead.

If you check my contributions to this forum you'll see I always provide the link where I got any item of information from, unless I couldn't find it. And in case I post pics I always credit the author. Ethics!

Cleaner water starts to flow into city
2010-12-2
Shanghai Daily



SOME 750,000 Shanghai residents yesterday became the first people in the city to receive cleaner tap water from the newly built Qingcaosha Reservoir in the Yangtze River.

Residents in Caolu, Jinqiao, Sunqiao and Zhangjiang, all in Pudong, were the first of 10 million Shanghai residents - nearly half the city's population - who will get cleaner water by next June.

Water from the Yangtze is cleaner than water from the Huangpu River, which currently provides most of Shanghai with its tap water.

However, even the cleaner tap water is not drinkable before boiling in China.

The second batch, 4.2 million people in Yangpu, Hongkou, Zhabei, Luwan, Jing'an and Huangpu districts and part of Putuo District will receive the reservoir water from January 15.

Yesterday, Jinhai water plant, which was built in 2008 mainly for the 17 billion yuan (US$2.56 billion) reservoir project, began supplying water to 750,000 Pudong residents, while small water plants in the area were closed.

Qin Weixiao, a 40-year-old from in Caolu town, was impressed. He said the reservoir water looked clearer and had less of a chemical smell.

A predicted temporary drop in water quality during the supply changeover lasted only two hours, said Qin.

People will find the reservoir water "brighter, with a purer taste" compared with tap water from the Huangpu River, said Chen Guoguang, senior engineer of the city's Water Supply Inspection Center. The river now provides about 70 percent of the city's tap water, with the remaining 30 percent from the Yangtze.

Moreover, the water is slightly alkaline with a pH of 8, which is good for health, said Wang Hailiang, deputy director of the Pudong Veolia Water Corp, in charge of the water supply for the area.

The new reservoir should also ensure there will be no water shortages caused by saltwater tides, as it has enough capacity to meet the city's needs for 68 days, said Zhao Pingwei, deputy director of the center.

Saltwater pours into the Yangtze River mouth every year from October to April, threatening water quality in the city's waterways.

By June 15, about 10 million residents in Changning, Xuhui, Luwan, Jing'an, Huangpu, Hongkou and Yangpu districts, as well as parts of Pudong, Putuo, Zhabei, Minhang and Qingpu districts and Changxing Island, will receive water from the reservoir.

People in Baoshan and Jiading districts will receive water from the Yangtze from the Qingcaosha and Chenhang reservoirs by 2013.

By 2015, the 700,000 residents on Chongming Island will get their water from the Yangtze, following the construction of Dongfengxisha Reservoir, which will provide the same high-quality water as Qingcaosha.

People in parts of Qingpu and Minhang, part of Songjiang, Jinshan and Fengxian districts will continue using Huangpu River water.

100Mbps broadband by 2012
2010-12-1
Shanghai Daily

SHANGHAI plans to make home broadband 10 times faster and establish a citywide mobile broadband network, with more 3G base stations and a next-generation broadcasting network by 2012, local officials said yesterday.

The city, one of the pilot regions chosen to test Three Network Convergence - the convergence of Internet, TV and mobile networks - will be expected to take a leading role in implementing national policy in sectors such as infrastructure construction, business scale and service level.

Shanghai is to encourage cooperation between local TV broadcasting and telecommunications firms, such as joint ventures between the sectors.

Meanwhile, there will be more cross-platform services such as Internet Protocol TV IPTV, mobile TV and online broadcasting organizations on one unified network.

This means that Chinese TV, Internet and mobile phone users might soon be able to use a single gadget for all the things that now require separate pieces of hardware and accounts.

An improved network access capacity in Shanghai could allow users to enjoy services through any device anywhere, industry insiders said.

For Three Network Convergence, Shanghai plans to establish a fiber optical network to 1 million households with a speed of 100 megabits per second, more than 10 times present levels.

Telecommunications carriers plan to add 2,000 Wi-Fi hotspots and 1,300 3G base stations to build a mobile broadband network covering the city.

The NGB network, which is being built by SMG's subsidiary Oriental Cable Network, will provide users with high-quality digital TV content and interactive services.

Shanghai Media Group is the city's No. 1 media giant covering TV broadcasting and TV content production.

China has 300 million TV sets and Wang Xiaojie, general director of the science and technology division of the General Administration of Press and Publication, said: "The TV set is the most popular and affordable device for integrated services."

Wang noted the lack of interactivity at present, saying: "The biggest bottleneck of the TV network is single-way transition but it will change."

Telecommunications carriers, including China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, will also invited to provide media content on TV and mobile phones, according to OCN.

Shanghai is one of 12 cities and regions chosen by the State Council, China's Cabinet, as a pilot area.

X3-2, by terence lee @ Flickr. This one was supposed to be around 200m. Anyone knows the final design? (with reliable sources proving it is, please). We should have a thread for it.
