Excellent! Puxi's first genuine supertall (Wheellock is close but no cigar, and Shimao International's silly spires don't really count )

What is the Metro station closest to this project? And for that matter, what is the Metro system most commonly called in Shanghai?

I believe the current closest station to this project is Tiantong Road on Line 10, although there will be a closer station on Line 12, which is currently under construction and will open in 2012.

The metro system in Shanghai is called Shanghai Metro in English, or 上海地铁 (Shang4hai3 di4tie3), which literally means 'Shanghai Underground Railway', in Chinese.

^Thanks!

Another question, was there anything of note on the site previously or does the historic Bund basically terminate just south?

The historic Bund's northern end is at the confluence of the Huangpu River with Suzhou Creek, basically at the Waibaidu (Garden) Bridge. This building is being built north of Suzhou Creek, near the International Ferry Terminal. I believe that this area was previously occupied by nothing of note, primarily being a warehouse district.

Yes, very true; north of Suzhou creek was historically a different settlement/concession from the British one in Huangpu district, I believe. So the old buildings in Hongko (the district immediately north of the Bund) has a very different characteristic in terms of zoning and historical architecture.

On the other hand, I just realized that there is a typo in the name of the thread . Oh, well.

Pleasant design, if a bit generic.

Could a moderator change that, pls ?

It's currently a big hole in the ground. There is a more active thread on skyscrapercity but there's still not an awful lot to see yet. Think the Shanghai Tower 6 months back, only a smaller hole...

SOM appears to have done some creative work with this design. The generous site has allowed them to break the project into three towers united by common material, color and detail. There also appears to be much green space and green roof ares.

The video shows what appears to be a different glazing on the river side than on the shore side. Is this really the plan?
