This sounds really nice, but I think the old houses in that area are worth saving. Also, they need to cut down on space between the buildings. I think its best to have a wall of buildings lining the tree lined street rather than buildings surrounded by greenery flattering themselves. It looks good on the drawing board and in the models, but it is not good for the pedestrian walking down the street in real life

^when you mean street walls, you're thinking of the standard uninterrupted buildings in paris or st. petersburg.

unfortunately you're now referring to a high density area that's being developed in the age of motorized transport, AND a city which has (and suffers) from a humid, cooling climate.

the point to having these gaps between buildings is to improve air circulation. this will serve both to help dissipate exhaust (streetwalls aren't great at doing that), and to allow for breezes. thus other cities with cooling climates do not adapt street walls today.

I went to Xintiandi the other day and walked east from there past the lake and park area. I came across a bunch of old shikumen houses with boarding around them in between Jinan road and ji'an road...maybe these are the ones that will form part of the programme? Further east between ji'an and dongtai road there was a cleared plot with some cranes and equipment on it. Here are some photos.

I'm not sure if this is the plot for this building or not but it seems possible!

@djm160190
This is the site of Phase 2.
Phase 2 consists of those smaller twin towers (2x150m) next to the supertall.
The supertall is actually Phase 3 not Phase 2.

BTW is the number in your nickname your birthday? If yes, then we are born on the same day (or you're 100 years older than me).
Of course you don't have to answer this personal question, if you don't want to.

@Divineator
Those towers (one of the two towers can't be seen on the pictures above) are the Xintiandi Langham Hotel.

Yes the number at the end of my username is indeed my birthday! Can't believe we have exactly the same birthday

Nice coincidence. I just thought those numbers looked kind of familiar.

I like better Puxi's skyline than Lujiazu's, Lujiazu's seems too artificial and overplanned to me, there's very little urban feeling (as in most new urban developments), however Puxi is a "real" city, it feels dense and diverse. It's not just like Sao Paulo, it's like any european city centre, with urban life, people living and hanging out, etc. but with skyscrapers. So I would also like Puxi to be the place for new and taller skyscrapers, instead of some new development area.
BTW: No news on this project since 2 years ago? :/

I was there the other day. The renders by the site have the twisty supertall in them, but there is no sign of it being built. I don't even think they have told the tenants of the buildings on site to leave.

As for me, I like Puxi more, too.

BarbaricManchurian, you're not right saying that Puxi doesn't have supertalls. Shimao tower is 333 m tall, than Magnolia Plaza is being constructed, it will be 319 m tall. Tomorrow square is almost 300 - 286 m.

Check the date on the comment. At the time Wheelock Square was rising and Shimao can be considered a supertall but not by roof height. Now several years later we are getting a good amount of supertalls in Puxi.
