    The Company is pleased to announce that as at 30 June 2017, the main concrete structures of the major animal exhibition venues, animal performance venues, auxiliary theme hotels, theme restaurants and parking lots of the Shanghai Project have been topped out. The construction of all the main structures of the premises of the Shanghai Project has been completed.
    The core operation team of the Shanghai Project is now in place and it plans to start reserving and domesticating marine animals required for the opening of the project.
    In addition, the auxiliary facilities, highways and rail transportation system around the Shanghai Project continue to improve. Shanghai’s second largest passenger railway station, Shanghai East Railway Station, will also be built in the Pudong New District in Shanghai. Various tourism projects will also be developed in the Lingang area. The Company believes that the Lingang area will become a new tourist spot in Shanghai.

    So the translation is terrible but I think the news is that Hai Chang Ocean Park Holdings Limited has gone into business with Country Garden Holdings Co to enable them to work on future projects together.

    The development and operation of commercial blocks acquired by Haichang Ocean Park; or through joint and subcontractors and government communication to obtain, access to commercial tourism land, the development of tourism and leisure projects and supporting hotels, commercial, residential and so on.

    and it looks like they already aquired some new land as an expansion space for Polar Ocean World...

    The land use right of Block A and Block B, which was listed for sale by the Land and Resources Bureau, was confirmed on June 13, 2017. Which is a commercial and recreational land for the future development of Zhengzhou Hai Chang Polar Ocean Park project.

    Here's the first layout I've seen of what I believe is the current design of the park:



    The article that this layout is from says that the park will open in the "second half" of 2018 meaning that it'll probably open later than July, which was previously reported in a different article.

    Also, here are a couple of concept images showing two of the animal shows:
