So there is a poster? I will check it out (although I have many construction sites to check out now, and very little time)...

I find it great that they are building a supertall on the other shore of the river...who knows, this might be the beginning of a new water-front cluster.

It will be very interesting to see how this one turns out. I suspect it is one of those projects that will look much better in real life than in the renderings.

Actually not. Till now, the site is still empty, without any sign of initiation.

That's too bad. I was really looking forward to visit the site. How about the posters around the plot fence?

I know the site is still silent from a photo taken weeks ago, and the building you pointed to actually belongs to the cruise terinal project (integral to the five low buildings, but a bit higher).
It's not the first time for them to place a poster. SHAME on APP.

Why are people calling this the White Magnolia Plaza? Isn't this project called Shanghai North Bund Gingang Square? 北外滩亚太纸业项目

The Magnolia Building 白玉兰大厦 is an office tower being built by Shui On Land in Taipingqiao, Luwan District (where Xintiandi is located).

jlb,

SOM calls it the White Magnolia Plaza on their website, and that's as far as I know the only source of an English name of the project we have so far. Translations of building project names from Chinese to English are always a bit fuzzy... It's White Magnolia Plaza until we have something else.

I looked into it a bit more and aparently Gingang Square is part of the overall development for the north bund international cruise terminal. Aparently the plot fot the White Magnolia Building is vacant and the design hasn't be finalised yet, but i haven't been to have a look myself so i could be wrong. I don't know if that picture showing construction is this site, there are more than 10 buildings going up in the overall project so it could be any one of them.

Just to make things more confusing there are actually two projects with the name 白玉兰大厦 (White Magnolia Building). News articles last year referred to the north bund version that this forum is about, but there's also another one with that name in Luwan, which should probably also be in the supertall section. At 68 storeys it should break 300m because the high standard will require at least 4m between floors and it is likely to have trading floors which have much higher ceilings and raised floors than normal. The curtain wall will also go higher than the roof height. There's a bit on it here, including a picture.

Yes, that project is already covered in the Shanghai Projects thread.

Its amazing. Shanghai's never short of exciting new projects. I just wish they wouldn't leave so much open space on the properties of the new skyscrapers being built.
