  • Optimizing Site Location by "One Road, One Plan"

    Recently, the Xuhui Government hold collective contract signing ceremony for the distribution power plant construction includes aerial line into underground and the combined rod. In March this year, Xuhui first launched project that make aerial line into underground and the combined rod in the Henfu historic area. The power sector preliminary calculate that the core area of the style area needs 82 switching stations and distribution station site, the current needs of site have been reduced to about 51 after miniaturization. There are 31 sites are related to state-owned enterprises, and government institutions; the first signed units are 9 and totally 20 sites. The three-year action plan for the renovation work of making aerial line into underground and the combined rod shows that the project will cover 57 roads with 65.968 kilometers in next three years, and try to make at least 80% of aerial line into ground of inner ring line area. This year, we will focus on the renovation of aerial lines in the Hengfu historic area. Xuhui District Construction and Transportation Commission introduced it will promote the aerial line into the ground and combined rod center on CBD of Xujiahui and Hengfu Historical area. According to the requirements of the power sector, the minimum switching station and distribution station site spacing should be maintained between 300 and 500 meters and form a site network, so as to ensure voltage stability in peripheral area. For the location of relatively complex distribution station site, Xuhui district will adhere to the three principles: first, it should take condition of power grid planning area into consideration, to select multiple points and minimize the number of sites; second, it should majorly make use of scrap space, garage and tool space, reduce influence significantly on the original ownership of functional use; third, it should try to avoid choosing points in the center of urban green space, and the new site needs to optimize the building and landscape such as greening. However, there are some objective factors such as narrow road, high building density and difficulty in the implementation of site, so how to overcome these challenges in the renovation of the aerial line into underground and the combined rod? Shanghai Southern power supply Company of state grid said that the departments are searching for the usable building sites, and at the same time, the power sector is actively to research the region's existing distribution stations and rebuilt some distribution stations with reconstruction and expansion conditions. Person in charge of Xufang Group said that 24.51 kilometers covering 19 roads will be brought into the aerial line into underground plan in Hengfu historic area this year, and 15.71 kilometers covering 12 roads is planned to complete. For the sites selection of relatively complex distribution station, we firstly take the measure of “one road one plan", and take advance to select distribution station. Then we should make the best use of the original power supply facilities, public toilets, garbage houses, public green spaces and existing houses and other resources of public institutions along the road to select sites that can be rebuilt or extended. Taking Yueyang road which is model road for aerial line into underground as an example, there is a tenant in the street who agrees to reduce the business area and make room for the construction of Type-P power station. At present, we have finished the design of the power station, and we are preparing intensively for the structural reinforcement and renovation.(Source: Jiefang Daily)

  • Xuhui District Adjusts Several Road Settings

    Recently Xuhui district has adjusted several road markings, including measures such as setting up stop markings, changing right turn lanes into straight right turn lanes, painting taxis stop-and-go markings on bus platforms and so on. Relevant departments remind citizens to notice the adjustment information in time to plan their trip before going out. It is learned that that the 120 ambulance accessing to some hospitals is not convenient, so Xuhui traffic police set stop marking line in West Huaihai Road near Shanghai Chest Hospital, to improve the hospital road traffic efficiency. As Huashan road is relatively congested from north to south during the evening peak period, Xuhui traffic police optimized the phase of the north entrance lane in West Guangyuan road, Huashan road, and changed the original right turn lane to straight right turn lane, which has further improved the road traffic efficiency in the district transfer area. For the situation that the prohibition of stopping in the yellow line section reflected by the taxi transport unit, Xuhui traffic police painted 130 taxi stop-and-go markings at the bus platforms of ZhaoJiabang road and Caoxi road, and installed corresponding indications, which facilitated passengers to take taxis and get off nearby in the yellow line section. And the junction of 2nd South Zhongshan Road, Shuangfeng Road, the traffic police department added “electronic police monitoring” and pedestrian crossing warning signs in the intersection of east and west on both sides, thus warning motor vehicles not to fight for and rob the road. For the situation that too many non-motor vehicles park in 2nd South Zhongshan Road, which occupies the waiting area of the street, the management department cleans up and adjusts the non-motor vehicle parking spots, and regulates the non-motor vehicles and pedestrians to wait for the passage. Traffic police department recalculate the normal traffic flow of the trunk road of 2nd South Zhongshan road, and change the intersection of the existing 2 phase signal light into 4 phase, and short total waiting time of pedestrian crossing street from 5 minutes 33 seconds to 2 minutes 40 seconds, as waiting time is significantly shortened, the traffic efficiency largely improved.(Source: Youth Daily)

  • Open Culture and Art Square Opened Late Next Year in Front of Grand Gateway 66

    In an era where Internet and social media weren’t so developed and many tourist attractions were yet to be discovered by the masses, the 39 “grand steps” in front of the Grand Gateway 66 shopping mall had already become a signature background featuring varied magnificent views and arrangements echoing special occasions in many people’s tourist photos. Late yesterday, this landmark structure within Xujiahui commercial area and even the whole city of Shanghai was beginning to be fenced with scaffoldings, and the demolition work was officially begun. Till the end of 2019 an open culture and art square will be unveiled here. The “grand steps:” the memory of a generation In 1999 when shopping malls were still a nascent phenomenon in China, the emergence of Grand Gateway 66 furnished people with new ideas about what a shopping center should look like. The two-storey-high “grand steps” in front of the Grand Gate 66 was not only this magnificent and spectacular façade of the shopping mall, but also a place closely tied to Shanghainese’s everyday life through all kinds of exciting activities and unique installments and arrangements echoing special occasions. The Christmas tree in front of the shopping mall each year was always the No.1 subject of all the articles published by public accounts on that day. It has become the memory of a generation of Shanghainese during the past 20 years who, when they recall the old days, will always remember the diverse and different themed cultural and commercial activities (Christmas celebrations, New Year celebrations and movie promotions) happened here. As the demolition work began, however, all of these will be forever sealed in memories and photos. “New Wing” of Grand Gateway 66 will open in the middle of this year Xujiahui commercial district was developed in late 80s and early 90s, and the whole area employed a high plot ratio development strategy. And also as a hub of transportation, it’s never short of traffic. Recently, Xujiahui launched a series of renovation projects that were designed to adapt to the changing consumer culture, including the Xujiahui corridor project. Though the disappearance of the “grand steps” is final, the reporter has understood that a “New Wing” of the Grand Gateway 66 will be unveiled soon after its renovation. The New Wing will complete all its business adjustments and re-open in the middle of this year, and by then it will house a string of designer brands, fashion brands, buyers’ shops, international affordable luxury brands, and lifestyle restaurants. The New Wing has an entirely different business concept from the main mall, and it aims to break traditional perceptions of fashion and approach it from a more personalized angel. Seeing from the rendering picture released by Grand Gateway 66, the square at the front entrance of the future mall looks more spectacular and makes the mall more accessible, and the translucent outer glass wall enhances not only the aesthetic quality of the mall, but also the displaying effects of various brands. The space of the outdoor square will be greatly increased and it will become an open art and culture space for all kinds of cultural and entertainment activities. The ground floor will also introduce some new international brands, and based on its current business layout, the main mall will be marketed at an elevated level. As for its connectivity with the surrounding environment, the “New Wing” will be seamlessly connected to Line 9, which enables passengers’ direct access to B1 floor of the mall from exits of the subway station. Xujiahui Corridor phase 2 project will connect also Orient Shopping Center and Grand Gateway 66. Imagine when the transformation of the “grand steps” is done and a new culture and art square stands here, what would be lovelier than spending a summer night here watching an outdoor performance with a cool drink in your hand?
