Someone in the know, please fill me in.

I have visited this area of Shanghai a few times. It definitely has a distinct national as well as local flavor; seems to be a good place for a Chinese version of the broadway / cultural nexus.

Hopefully, the current situation looks really odd. Such an important street as Century should have its surrounding fully developed, rather than be lined by temporary looking low-rise apartment blocks.

in europe and other industrial countries, most low rise housing project are located outside the city,in China,it was a reverse.
this make any form expansion of construction (or economy) impossibile.second,giving the population density of shanghai in coming decade,low rise building will prove to be wasteful (or waste of space) ,particular in prime area.

Old pipes stymie water quality
Created: 2011-6-28 1:30:58
Author:Yang Jian

EFFORTS to improve the city's water quality are being frustrated by decades-old pipes, experts and officials have said.

This comes after it was announced that from next year a water plant in Baoshan District will be able to supply water that can be drunk from the tap, using technology seen in the World Expo 2010.

But Zhu Junxiang, a spokesman for Litre, the company providing the technology to Luojing Water Plant, said the 100,000 residents receiving the new supplies have been advised not to drink the water direct from their taps as it may be contaminated en-route in rusted, scaled pipes.

The hyperfiltration membrane technology in the Luojing plant that was used in drinking fountains at the Expo is to be extended to other local plants, he said.

The city has been investing heavily to improve tap water at the source - such as the 17 billion yuan (US$2.63 billion) Qingcaosha Reservoir on the Yangtze River - and at treatment facilities.

But drinkable tap water remains a dream, mainly because of problems with rusting iron pipes, some of which are more than 20 years.

Shanghai has one of China's longest and most complicated water systems, said Gao Naiyun, director of the Environmental Science and Engineering College of Tongji University.

She said engineers have to add extra chlorine to ensure safety en route to homes, which leaves a chemical smell and makes the water unsuitable to drink from the tap.

Shanghai Vice Mayor Shen Jun has said pipelines and water tanks in local homes will be cleaned to ensure that purer water from the new reservoir does not get polluted.

The city has more than 200 million square meters of old residential houses with pipes that need renovating, said Gu Jinshan, deputy general manager of Shanghai Chengtou Corp, a major utilities company that owns most of the city's water plants.

Gu said the company had begun the work, but it will take several years to complete.

Shanghai Chengtou planned to first complete renovations for the city's rural areas before 2015, an official told Shanghai Daily yesterday.

The company launched a 45-day renovation program in the city early this year.

Engineers repaired many pipes found to have cracks of up to 11 centimeters, Gu said.

Qingcaosha Reservoir began providing water to the city last December and now provides tap water to 10 million Shanghai residents.

Suburbs to have seven new towns
Created: 2011-6-30 0:26:15
Author:Yang Jian

MORE than 4.4 million residents will be encouraged to move to the suburbs in 2020 after the city government pledged to build seven new towns with full public service facilities and more job opportunities, the city's urban planner revealed yesterday.

"Shanghai's development focus has been shifted to the suburbs from downtown areas," said Hu Jun, deputy director of the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Planning and Land Resources.

The residents, accounting for 18 percent of the city's population, will move from both downtown areas and other Yangtze River Delta cities to new towns in Jiading, Songjiang, Lingang (in the Pudong New Area), Qingpu, Nanqiao (in Fengxian District), Jinshan and Chongming, Hu said.

The plan could help to rearrange local industry and population structures, so as to improve the city's economic development as well as people's living standards. The towns would also promote the development of cities in neighboring provinces, he said.

Infrastructure and housing, especially affordable houses, are being built for the towns and complete public facilities, including hospitals, schools and sports and cultural venues, are in the works.

Opinions on the plan were divided. "I am reluctant to move to the suburbs even if I had a job there, because it will be too inconvenient," said Han Zhifei, 26, a network engineer at Daikin air conditioner company in Minhang District. He shuttles two hours every day between his home and work.

But the plan was good news to Zhang Da from Liaoning Province who rents an apartment in Jing'an District. "The rent in the downtown area accounts for most of my salary, so I would like to move to the new towns and even find a new job there."

The Songjiang and Jiading new towns will house about 2 million residents. The towns in Lingang, Qingpu and Nanqiao will attract 1.8 million people, while the Jinshan and Chongming towns will have 600,000 people.

Thanks for the splendid views. It seems that this area is growing up to be another Xujiahui, and perhaps even more in the future. I have high hopes for this district of the city, as it is close to People's square, the bund proper, as well as right across from Lujiazui. It should be a good target for future development as well.

And as I remember this area was pretty rich in terms of history in the 19 and 20 centuries, with ties to the US, to Russia, as well as a significant Jewish settlement. I also remember a lot of old theatres and studios. China at the moment still lacks a premier arts and theatre district; I wonder if this would be eventually developed into one.
