The first two renders show the actual location, next to Yan'an Lu.

I would really appreciate it if the Shangri-La Hotel company decided to destroy their hotel in Pudong. It completely ruins that areas modern look, it is like a stain in the skyline.

Hot pics, giallo. Is the construction site as massive as it looks in aerials?

Yea i was looking at the render, it shows the two building aligned perpendicular to the elevated highway. But then when you look at the construction site, the two buildings are aligned parallel to the highway??

I was under the impression that the taller building will be built in the plot to the left in this photo:




Maybe I'm wrong?

Oh, i thought that would be the plot for Shangri-La hotel =/ Also the other hole below the building current u/c looks big enough for another building there.

But looking back at the render again, maybe you are right :p

Shangri-La will be located inside the taller building as I understand it. The other hole below the "first" tower might be a foundation for the mall or something.

I wish we wouldn't have to speculate like this.


The press release from Shangri-La is quite confusing imo:

http://www.shangri-la.com/en/corpora...srelease/21370
Quote:
The luxury Jing An Shangri-La, Shanghai will open mid-2011. The hotel will occupy the top 24 floors of a 58-storey, Grade A building, with the lower floors comprising restaurants, offices and retail shops

The sleekly styled Shangri-La’s Jing An Kerry Centre Hotel will be modelled on the group’s similarly contemporary Kerry Centre Hotel in Beijing. The 600-room, 43-storey hotel will open the end of 2011. Designer retail shops will face Nanjing Road at street level.

JING-AN MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT
SHANGHAI, CHINA

CLIENT : KERRY PROPERTIES

The Jing An Mixed-Use Development will be a new signature landmark for the dynamic Jing An district. The multi-use complex will feature two towers, podium retail, a hotel with 350 rooms, a convention center, and office amenities on a site adjacent to the Kerry Centre. Establishing its presence on the Nanjing Xi Lu, the development will integrate itself within the rich urban context of the city in a design which embraces the energy of Shanghai.

The site plan for the development employs an architectural language embodying the spatial and visual qualities of the city street experience. Open air walkways lined with shops and a glazed galleria utilize contrasting spaces of intimacy and grandeur to evoke a sense of continuity with the surrounding Shanghai pedestrian scale. Landscaping creates a range of gardens echoing the signature character of the complex.

The vertical massing of the podium and towers reflects the same visual diversity developed in the site plan. Layering and stacking of building masses creates a distinct design vocabulary establishing a direct dialogue with the surrounding skyline. The buildings have been carefully developed to create balanced contrasts between dynamic and restful formal relationships resulting in a kinetic yet harmonious sculptural assemblage. Slender proportions and apparently floating forms give an elegant impression of the whole reinforcing the richness of the visual and spatial experience of circulating throughout the site.

An additional level of character and visual interest for the complex is created by use of a variety of glass, metal, and stone cladding finishes. These materials are applied in combination with a family of architectural grid patterns. The grids take the form of bold and subtle mullions, projecting lattices, and negative figures, themselves varying in scale and proportion. Grid fašade elements will continue up the tower facades and project above the roof lines to form dramatic sculptural crowns illuminated as lanterns in the evening sky.

Er... So they have inverted the height of the towers? That means that the rising one is the tallest. Also I think it has 60-62 floors in the new renders, so maybe it will be taller than we thought.
