Puxi commercial complex is reaching new heights

The commercial complex of the tallest building in Puxi officially opened to the public yesterday with a photo exhibition and historic artwork display.

The shopping center of the 320-meter-high Sinar Mas Plaza, also known as the White Magnolia Plaza, on the North Bund in Hongkou District will also have a monthlong fashion festival.

Miniature World is a 300-square-meter artwork that depicts the historical scenery of the Bund.

It was completed with the participation of many historians from Fudan University.

Historical events, such as the establishment of the statue of the Goddess of Peace, are showcased in the mini-masterpiece. Even the toll of the clock tower of the Bund has been restored.

Over a dozen artists spent about 18 months creating the work. An LED illumination system simulates night and day over the Bund. The work features more than 15,000 figures, 500 vehicles and 300 river vessels. Other newly opened entertainment venues at the site include the Dinoman theme park, a Legoland and a Lanehub experience store.

The array of eateries at the center includes KPRO, a new sub-brand of KFC China.

The main building of the plaza is the fourth-tallest in Shanghai, after the 632-meter Shanghai Tower, 492-meter Shanghai World Financial Center and 420.5-meter Jin Mao Tower in Pudong’s Lujiazui area.

The new building surpasses the 250-meter Shimao International Plaza to become Puxi’s tallest construction.

However, that distinction won’t last long.

Construction is underway on two skyscrapers in Puxi that will surpass the height of the plaza.

The North Bund area is being transformed into a financial and shipping center.

Office buildings, restaurants and malls have been planned for the area, according to the Hongkou District blueprint.
