Some good news on the construction front:
-Wheelock Center is finally above ground
- Equipment is on the Kerry Center site. Hopefully, we'll see the 300m+ tower rise soon
-The other plot adjacent from the Jing An Temple has been blocked off with signage
-I forget the name (the building that has the open book crown) is under construction. The guy at the site said it was a 60+ floor office tower

All this in the Jing An district

You mean this? Huamin King Tower, 258m, 63fl


Nanjing Lu 1788th project should be started soon too


Some minor projects, I think I took these pics close to Nan Zheng Plaza




By the way, the first stage of Manpo International Plaza (the twin towers) are almost completed, very close to the end of Nanjing Lu

The 1788 project is the one that has the signage up now. And yes, it's the Huamin Tower that is UC.

Many Shanghai-phobes around here have writen once and again that Shanghai is building facade projects which stay rather empty when completed. A lie repeated a thousand times becomes a truth, said Goebbels. All of you can kiss my ass now

The high occupancy rate of Shanghai's offices should be very evident at night. Unlike most Chinese cities, most of the windows in major office buildings are lit. Many cities in China do have a very serious low occupancy rate problem such as Dalian, Xiamen, Harbin, Shenyang, Wuhan, Xining, Urumqi, etc. and many second-tier cities that have many skyscrapers but are pitchblack come nightfall. Shanghai is NOT one of them. Just a picture of the city at night should be sufficient proof that there is not a vacancy problem there.

why do building/urban planners in Shanghai like making the distance between buildings so enormous? Just look at the IFC or SWFC, Jin Mao, etc. You have parking lots next to some of these buildings. Such a lack of density makes me say that I prefer places like Hong Kong, Tokyo, or NYC. Does anyone think this is gonna change say if the population density gets bigger or if demand for office space continues to skyrocket? Cuz honestly, the thing I can't stand about Shanghai is its lack of dense clusters and lack of skyscraper canyons.

You're talking about Lujiazui, ie. a small piece of land where the tallest scrapers are located on Pudong. The rest of the city (ie. Puxi and the rest of Pudong), is as hyperdense as any other Asian metropolis.

A problem with Lujiazui is that many people on these forums seem to think that "that's what Shanghai is about". Seriously, it's just a small plot of land with tall skyscrapers and large boulevards. The real Shanghai is on the other side of the river - and so are 99% of the skyscrapers.

People don't go around saying that Canary Wharf is the real London, right? It's the same for Lujiazui.
