SHANGHAI: Views of Lujiazui 1980-2010

These pictures were posted by many other forumers from this and other forums. Some of the pictures were even taken by those forumers. This thread is dedicated to the people that post their own pictures of Shanghai or any other city in Skyscrapercty, Skyscraperpage and other sites just for our fun. You guys make my heart to accelerate with this material more than the sexiest body in the world. Go on!


1980, Lujiazui is full of light industries.


Here is a map where you can check what was Lujiazui dedicated to in those years


In 1984 Shanghai becomes a Special Economic Zone and in 1990 Pudong (the east part of Shanghai, where is located Lujiazui) is opened to foreign investments. Pic from 1990.


1993, Oriental Pearl Tower u/c


Pudong starts massive removals of old houses. The north part (Lujiazui), will become a massive CBD very soon. The south will get full of residential skscrapers of 30, 40 and 50 floors.


1994, the Oriental Pearl is completed now


Lujiazui in 1994 from the Oriental Pearl Tower


1995, Jin Mao is started and the central area of Pudong, beyond Lujiazui, is booming already.


In Lujiazui, the first group of 200m+ towers starts building.


1996, Jin Mao rises fast.


We have a good skyline already


In 1997 the Mori Corporation announces the construcion of the SWFC, which is cancelled soon due to the Asian crisis. The project will remain on hold for 7 years.


1998, As Lujiazui is booming, the northern area of Lujiazui is still full of shipyards.


The Shanghai Bank of China Tower and Bocom Towers start rising, two of the cutest skyscrapers in Lujiazui.


1999, the super residentials boom at the south of Lujiazui is up to start. Beyond the river, Xujiahui lives its own miracle.


2000, there are still many plots left.


2001-2002, Citigroup and Aorura towers are completed.


2004, The Shanghai World Financial Center is re-approved and it starts rising so fast...


2005, every Lujiazui plot has its own project asigned, there is a need for more space! The shipyards in north of Lujiazui are removed as well as the North Bund Area in the other side of the Hangpu river. These areas will boom in the next decade.


Shanghai Bank Headquarters and Azia Center u/c


2006, more u/c and approved projects than ever!


Lujiazui by 2008


Chronology since 1993 from the Oriental Pearl and near future projection.



Enjoy

Shalom Zorg. First and foremost congratulations.This is an excellent topic. A quality topic indeed that seem to be rare these days! Your pictures are amazing! Pudong is going to be mind blowing in the coming four years. They skyline will be astounding. I loved the 2008 and 2010 renderings. Very impressive. Good job!

As well as the Shenzhen City(Special Economic district) , from a fishing village in 1980 built up to a metropolitan city in late 1990s. A bunch of other chinese major cities have the experiences more or less.

Excellent post.
It looks amazing now, but in 2010 it will look far better. Can't wait to see all these projects finished.
