It's a rejected design for the small plot next to the Oriental Pearl Tower.

There is a thread for this project on gaoloumi: http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...age%3D1&page=1

This is the final design (100m) (design is pretty disappointing):

by hdsghvoizp

It seems to be U/C:

They should make it higher than the ugly Ping'an building.

I think design is fine. It's just a minor construction on the water front. Could be good looking at night with colorful lights. I imagine something like on the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany.

On the last page of the gaoloumi thread you can see this render on the wall of the construction site.
Yeah, the design isn't a masterpiece, but i think it's a pretty poor render so that the building will look better in real.

Every building that blocks the view of Ping-an is a good building.

Well at least these will be shorter buildings to give shanghai some sort of layering. They aren't spectacular but they aren't exactly crap, just mediocre i guess.

Also, is there a train station/subway that takes people to this Pudong area? This building seems very secluded from the cluster, even though its just across the street from Ping An

There is an exit for lujiazui station right under the OPT so that would be very close to it.

Aren't building heights restricted in the Bund area or are buildings over 100 m being constructed nowadays?

If SOHO is u/c then can we have a thread for it please? There's also another plot much much bigger than this a bit further south that has been cleared and seemed to have activity on site. I will try and get some photos!

Mini fire stations to mushroom in downtown Shanghai
http://www.shanghaidaily.com/nsp/Met...ntown+Shanghai
2011-7-14

SHANGHAI is planning to build small-sized fire stations in downtown areas to address the shortage of firefighting facilities, local officials said today.

Since land is scarce in downtown Shanghai, only mini fire stations can be built in narrow lanes and between high-rises.

Zhao Zixin, director of the Shanghai Fire Control Bureau, said the existing fire stations in downtown districts are not enough to safeguard the dense population, and it is almost impossible to build fire stations as large as those in suburban areas due to limited land resources.

He said there are only two fire stations in Jing'an District. That explains why it took some long for reinforcements to join local firefighters to put out the high-rise inferno that killed 58 people on November 15.

In the former Luwan District which was merged with Huangpu District last month, there was only one fire station to cover the whole district.

Zhao said the city government allocated 487 million yuan (US$75.3 million) more money this year to purchase firefighting equipment, especially those that can deal with fires in high-rises, subways and tunnels.
