Yeah, I don't doubt the river project, since it's been official for a while that Shanghai will expand greatly on its yacht culture.
Concerning upcoming supertalls in Puxi though, I don't know for sure... I'd love to see it though.

I think the most likely supertall construction in Puxi is the Xintiandi supertall, since the project's second phase (supertall is in third phase) is already U/C.

Inter Ikea Boosts China Spending With $626 Million Shanghai Shopping Mall
Bloomberg Excerpt
Sep 7, 2011

Inter Ikea Centre Group, the developer of the world’s largest home-furnishings retailer, is boosting the size of three malls it’s building in China and plans a fourth in Shanghai on “huge demand” for shop leases.

Ikea Group’s mall developer plans to spend as much as 4 billion yuan ($626 million) on the Shanghai shopping center, which may open as early as 2016, managing director John Tegner said in an interview yesterday.

The investment in the Shanghai mall adds to the 10 billion yuan Inter Ikea said in 2009 would be invested over five years in China, where retail sales have grown an average of 17 percent in the seven months through July. Adidas AG, Swatch Group AG’s local partner Hengdeli Holdings Ltd. (3389) and Gome Electrical Appliances Holdings Ltd. are among those that have said they’re adding stores in the world’s most-populous nation.

“China is the single most important market in the world,” Tegner, 56, said in the eastern Chinese city of Wuxi, where he attended a ceremony to mark the start of construction of a 140,000 square-meter (1.5 million square-foot) mall scheduled to open in 2013. “A lot of retailers want to come to our sites, and we decided to make them a little bigger.”

***

Ikea, the world’s biggest home-furnishings retailer, last year said it planned to more than double the number of stores in China to 18 by 2015, as more people move to cities.

About 170 million Chinese moved to cities in the last 10 years, the biggest urbanization in history, according to the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. China aims to increase the proportion of those living in cities from 47.5 percent to 51.5 percent by 2015, it said in its latest five-year plan.
China Real Estate

Inter Ikea is considering four to five sites in Shanghai for its fourth mall in China, Tegner said.

The mall developer’s push comes as foreign retailers buy properties, abandoning a decade-long strategy of leasing. Rents in China soared after a 4 trillion yuan stimulus package in 2008 helped revive economic growth.

Investment in Chinese real estate rose 33.6 percent to 3.2 trillion yuan in the first seven months from a year earlier, data from China’s statistics bureau show. Home sales volume rose 12.9 percent in the first seven months from a year earlier to 465.6 million square meters.

***

Inter Ikea, 49 percent owned by Ikea Group with the rest held by Inter Ikea Group, has 35 properties in 14 countries, Tegner said. At least 15 more are being built, according to the company’s website.

Park's colorful display is homegrown

2011-9-7


People take pictures at the Riverside Forest Park in Shanghai's Pudong New Area yesterday as a two-month wild flower show was launched at the park. Seeds of wild flowers were planted in the park instead of being cultivated elsewhere and moved into the park especially for the show. This is the first time in a city park that all the flowers on show have been grown in this way, officials said. About 80 percent of the flowers, totaling more than 100 types, have been introduced from Europe.

Planners lower height on planned Bund complex

By Yang Jian | 2011-9-6

SHANGHAI'S urban planning authorities yesterday lowered the height of a modern high-rise complex planned on the historic Bund to make it more harmonious with the rest of the Bund's architecture.

The heights of three side buildings of the planned Bund International Financial Service Center complex were reduced to less than 80 meters - 15 meters lower than the previous design, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Planning and Land Resources said on its website yesterday. It is soliciting public opinion.

The side buildings will be used for offices, businesses and hotels. However, the plan has not been changed for the main part of the complex, two 180-meter-tall twin towers. The bureau said they will be farther away from the historic Bund scenic area and therefore received approval.

The green-capped Fairmont Peace Hotel is now the tallest among Bund buildings at 77 meters.

The bureau publicized an initial plan for the complex in July and changed the plan amid public opinions that the buildings would ruin the historic Bund scenery.

"The developer fully supports the new plan and welcomes further public opinions," Wang Fujie, deputy chairman of the board of directors of the Shanghai Zendai Property, told Shanghai Television Station yesterday.

Construction will begin at the end of the year on the complex which will be a comprehensive venue for business, finance, offices and cultural uses, Wang said.

Well that is great, I've always liked the design of SOHO, even though I think the original height was a bit too high to suit the Bund.

We're pretty sure, perhaps you should read the article again. SOHO that will start construction soon is going to be 80 meters tall and located close to the river. The proposed twin towers are expected to rise 180 meters each and located a few blocks away from the river.
