New masterplan in Zhangjiang (Pudong) includes 320m tall twin towers. This is 12km southeast of the Lujiazui skyline, very far from other skyscrapers, 18km from Pudong airport and 5km from Disneyland.

Taopu Science and Technology City. 12km northwest of People's Square (Shanghai city center). I don't know the status of these projects, but very likely they are already in site preparation.

Plot 603. Unkown height (I'd guess the tallest building is around 180m)

Plot 604. 150m + 90m
link






Plot 605. 140m the tallest building
link






Plot 606. 180m + 126m + 88m
link

Both projects already have subway station nearby, Taopu has line 11 and Zhanjiang has line 13 (this line was extended to the east just few months ago).

Former factories becoming care homes for elderly
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
May 9, 2019

Former factory premises in the city are being converted into senior care homes to solve a shortage of services and put idle industrial space to good use.

Six buildings in Yangpu District, the former downtown industrial base, have become care homes since 2016, with 1,500 beds available for the area’s increasing population of elderly citizens.

Another project this year will turn an erstwhile woolen sweater factory on Pingliang Road into a senior care center, the district government said yesterday.

“The downtown area is short of land resources, but Yangpu’s century-old industrial heritage provides solutions,” said Ming Yi, director of the district’s civil affairs bureau.

The scheme will help Yangpu add 10,800 senior care beds by 2020 to cater to the demand of its 392,000 residents above the age of 60 — 36.5 percent of the district’s total population. By the end of 2017, the city has 4.84 million people aged 60 or over, 33.2 percent of permanent residents.

At the Huicheng seniors’ welfare house on Minzhi Road in Yangpu, 154 elderly live in shared apartments renovated from former warehouses of the state-owned Liangyou Group.

The care home by the Huangpu River has some 440 beds and a separate building for disabled seniors who require more intensive care, said Zhang Liming, the home’s director.

New satellite terminal wins steel structure award
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
June 20, 2019

PUDONG airport’s new satellite terminal building, scheduled to open in September, has received China’s top steel structure award for its intricate and innovative design.

The world’s largest satellite terminal building, known as S1 and S2, is connected with Terminals 1 and 2 by an underground shuttle, and will provide faster transfers and better punctuality, Shanghai Airport Authority said yesterday.

Upon completion, Pudong airport will be able to handle 80 million passengers annually, 6 million more than last year.

The sprawling H-shaped terminal built by Shanghai Mechanized Construction, with 83 boarding bridges and 125 aprons, features huge glass curtain walls and a large inner space without a single supporting pillar.

More than 35,000 tons of steel has been used in the project, equal to the total amount used for the Nanpu, Yangpu and Xupu bridges across the Huangpu River.

Work began in May 2016 and took two and a half years. The structure has won the gold award of the China Construction Metal Structure Association.

The glass curtain wall is 6 kilometers long and will offer a great view for waiting passengers. Long, thin beams which can resist typhoons were used to create the wall.

New poles have more functions, no unsightly cables
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
June 28, 2019

More intelligent services will be integrated into new street poles being erected citywide this year.

Shanghai has already installed the integrated street poles on more than 100 kilometers of downtown roads, removing unsightly, weathered overhead cables and old poles.

The new street poles, integrated with multiple functions including traffic signals, road signs, surveillance cameras and pedestrian signals, have cables running up from underground.

New “Smart City” functions can include 5G network base stations, temperature and air quality detection as well as signal exchanges between road and vehicles for future autonomous vehicles, the Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute (Group) Co said yesterday.

Radars to monitor aircraft in low air space can also be installed in future to expand the application of drones, said Sheng Yong, assistant chief engineer with the research institute of the company.

Electric vehicles will be able to charge in parking lots near some of the posts in the near future.

Installation finished in downtown landmarks last year, including Hongqiao business hub, Hengfu historical conservation zone, People’s Square, Xintiandi, the Astor House Hotel, Century Avenue and the National Exhibition and Convention Center.

Sixty-nine integrated poles were installed on a 4.6-kilometer-long section of Century Avenue in the Pudong New Area to replace 182 old poles.

These images were shared by someone in a wechat group, no more information than the images, which are from 2016, so I would say there is very little chance this is still alive, but nobody knows. A 70-85 storey tower (2 design options), apparently residential, and around 310-350 metres tall in People's Square, the style reminds the project already under construction near K11 designed by Bofil. The site is currently occupied by a group of old nice houses, French Concession style, which I believe must have some level of protection, and a 7 floor building packed with restaurants.

So much great construction, but I especially appreciate the attention to the public realm and the landscape architecture. Both look equally good and should make for much more successful developments ultimately.

Shanghai's 220 Central Park South would be really cool if they build it.

Also the images don't show that it is actually surrounded by 90-100m residential buildings so it won't outstand so much.
Name in Chinese is 太平报恩寺, Tàipíng bào'ēn sì, Peace Temple. In the satellite image, Lujiazui would be out of the image, but very close to the south-west, across the river.

Seems a little out of scale, does it conform to principles of Chinese temple design or is this just a fantasy come to life?

It's similar to Jing'An Temple in the Puxi district



which sources from the Diamond Throne style of pagoda (these are in Hohhot and Beijing, and are about 300 years old)




Which in turn was sourced from styles 1,200 years old:

This is the first time we see an image of Huaxing project, showing a 320m / 67fl tower and a 150m / 29fl, also 4 residential that some might reach 150m. This is near Joycity mall, Qufu Road station, this means, very close to the city center, and across the street of this project
The site is already cleared for construction, but no construction yet, but it might start before the end of year.

Also I recently opened this thread for Taipingqiao 250m tall tower in Xintiandi.

After years waiting, this site finally has some movement. Old schemes previous to 2015 featured a 350m tall tower, but it was finally redesigned to one 250m and two 99m office buildings. It has a very good location, in Xintiandi, between the old city and People's Square.
I have seen a presentation and the design has been fine tuned, especially the crown and the facade pattern are being improved, but this hasn't been officially released, and KPF hasn't even published it in its website yet.

Waste management becoming big business
25 July 2019
China Daily Excerpt

Regulations requiring Shanghai households and enterprises to sort their trash will create opportunities in circular economy

Trash sorting was a hot topic in Shanghai in the weeks before a new municipal regulation on waste management took effect on July 1, requiring everyone, from households to businesses, to sort their trash into recyclable, kitchen, hazardous and residual waste.

Though the regulation inconveniences people while they form new habits and those who don't comply face fines, it has boosted existing waste treatment business and will create new opportunities in the circular economy.

Dealing with waste is big business as 200 billion yuan ($29 billion) in investment will be needed if the current trash-sorting program in Shanghai is to be implemented across China, according to a recent report by Orient Securities.

The report calculated a 7.56-billion-yuan market for Shanghai in the whole industrial chain - education, monitoring of garbage disposal, transportation, and construction of waste treatment facilities. It then projected the Shanghai model to the national level, and estimated the market size will be around 200 billion yuan.

China plans to set up domestic waste classification systems in 46 major cities by next year, and all the cities at prefecture level and above, about 300, should have similar systems to classify and dispose of trash by 2025, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

Zhang Lequn, deputy director of the urban development department at the ministry, said in a news conference in June that the government will inject 21.3 billion yuan into the building of waste treatment facilities.

Great to see some life come to this thread! I've recently moved to Shanghai (started here as an architect) and love all information about how Shanghai is transforming further into the cyberpunk-sci-fi-city it already kinda is

Green strategy paying dividends
August 8, 2019
Shanghai Daily Excerpt

Fast-paced and densely-populated, Shanghai is often seen as a megacity made of concrete and steel. However, beyond the concrete jungle, it is also an environmentally friendly city, with a focus on green community and sustainable development.

Since 2017, the city’s investment on environmental protection has exceeded 230 billion yuan (US$32.7 billion), and its green sector accounts for at least 3 percent of the city’s GDP.

Going green has created increasing business opportunities for Shanghai. In the first half of this year, foreign-investment projects launched in Shanghai witnessed a year-on-year increase of 49.2 percent.

The contract value of foreign investment grew 6.3 percent and the actual foreign investment value increased 13.9 percent.

By the end of June, nearly 700 multinational companies had moved their regional headquarters to Shanghai. The city is home to more than 400 foreign-invested innovation centers and more than 200,000 working foreigners — nearly a quarter of the nation’s total.

Last year, Tesla launched the company’s first overseas Gigafactory — at a cost of US$5 billion — in the coastal Lingang area, the city’s smart manufacturing base in the Pudong New Area. It is the largest foreign manufacturing project yet built in Shanghai.

Shanghai has gained recognition from business for its commitment to going green. However, it’s not an easy task.

Compared with other cities, Shanghai with limited land and an increasing population faces tougher environmental challenges.

The city is carrying out structural readjustment by reducing its reliance on smokestack and labor-intensive industries.

Chongming is China’s third largest island and accounts for nearly one-fifth of Shanghai’s land area.

With its plan to become a world-class ecological island, Chongming aims to keep its population limited to 700,000, and to strictly control commercial development.
