Yes, and it looks like its nice and dense and not surrounded by uselessly unnecessary green plazas

What a shame this thread is on the 8th page of the proposed supertall section.

Anyways, the plot for Xujiahui centre was just sold for 21,770,000,000 RMB. The rumor says the buyer is Sun Hung Kai (the developer of Sh/HK IFC).

We should be able to see some final proposals in the near future.

21billion RMB is roughly 3.5billion USD. This is insane price.

This is only 1,246 feet tall and not a blockbuster design? I'm outraged.

SHKP wins bid for Shanghai city centre site with record price

Sun Hung Kai Properties, Hong Kong biggest developer by market value, won a prime commercial site in Xujiahuai, a shopping and entertainment area in Shanghai, for 21.7 billion yuan (HK$27.3 billion), making it the most expensive site in the city in terms of value.

After exchanging 200 bids with Wharf Holdings, SHKP finally secured the commercial site at 24 per cent above the minimum bid of 17.52 billion yuan. The winning bid represents 37,264 yuan per sq metre.

The site, which could yield a total of 584,200 square metres of floor space, will be the last big lot available for sale in the city centre.

“It will definitely become a landmark in Puxi as SHKP has a track record in building top-notch commercial buildings in Hong Kong and in Shanghai,” said Vincent Cheung, director of Greater China valuation and advisory at international consultant Cushman & Wakefield.

He estimated the total investment of the project would cost about 40 billion yuan. According to the land sale document, the winning developer is required to hold the project for at least 10 years.

“Only big players with strong financial strength can have such holding power. SHKP has expertise in building and managing top quality commercial buildings and it will give a big boost the nearby area in terms of commercial value,” he said.

SHKP owns 9.4 million square feet of investment properties in the mainland with landmark projects in Shanghai that include the office-hotel-retail complex Shanghai IFC in Luijazui, Pudong, and the newly launched shopping mall International APM in Huai Hai Road, Puxi.

“Its IFC is a well- known brand in China,” said Cheung.

Let's hope for a Dennis Lau, Pelli or KPF design then. Happy that SHKP is doing the tower

Is there a possibility of a significant height increase on this project? Such an expensive plot and putting up a 1246 ft tower nowdays seems like underkill. A taller building more floor space better return etc.

Looking forward for a good design . Hopefully the height isn't final too, some more meters would be nice!

SHK is very powerful, they have cash to build anything. On the other hand their project in Jing'an is shit, not even 200m.

I would say quality over height. I would prefer Shanghai IFC over a lot of the 400+s in China.

SHK is pure quality Probably the best one only after SOHO and CapitaLand. Whatever they build it will look great.

Yup. Not only do their buildings look great, SHK is extremely good at maintenance and management after the building is built.

I've just read Henderson Land was among the finalist developers. Fortunately they lost, otherwise this would become a never built project. I can't even understand how is it possible that they accept Henderson Land for prime skyscraper developments. Shenyang IFC plot has been idle for 6 years, same abut their Guangzhou supertall, and some others.

I'm pretty sure that huge plot on century avenue is also SHK's? It's been over ten years and they have only just started the construction.

The general shape of the 'building' will likely be fat and boxy to reduce construction costs and maximize u$able spaces.

Alleged design. They didn't credit the source.
