    More news from today:

    Builders will soon start constructing the infrastructure of the much-anticipated Shanghai Disney Resort, after preparations on the ground formation work were completed, attendees of a ceremony held at the site on Thursday were told.

    Bill Ernest, president and managing director of Disney Parks and Resort Asia, praised the ground work by the project's Chinese partner -- Shanghai Shendi Group -- and the support from the Shanghai municipal government, at the build site hand-over event.

    "We are incredibly excited to begin building the resort and to develop a world-class family vacation destination in Shanghai," he said.

    Ernest promised construction of hotels will start later this year, with developers studying Chinese culture in order to add local elements to Disney's latest attraction.

    "We are talking a lot about 'authentic Disney, unique Chinese.' We are really working hard to incorporate it in the overall design story," he said.

    The Disney chief disclosed that Shanghai Disneyland is likely to celebrate local events like Mid-Autumn Festival. Visitors will also see food, snacks and souvenirs with local elements in the park.
    Covering an area of 1.16 square km, the theme park inside the 3.9-sq-km Shanghai Disney Resort will be the world's sixth Disney amusement park and the first on the Chinese mainland. It will also be the third of its kind in Asia, after the company's theme parks in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

    During preparation work over the past year, the Shendi Group adopted cutting-edge vacuum preloading technology to level and consolidate the ground formation to prevent from it subsiding in the coastal site.

    Howard Brown, senior vice president overseeing development of the Shanghai Disney Resort, said the soil formation project is the largest ever undertaken anywhere.

    Builders are now working on road network construction, as well as the site's central lake and perimeter canal.

    Land ready for Disneyland construction

    THE Shanghai Disneyland Resort will soon enter its construction phase as the work to prepare its extensive site has been completed, project officials told the media today.

    Construction will start later this year on themed hotels, a retail, catering and recreational complex, and amusement facilities, the officials said.

    Site preparation for the Disneyland theme park and a parking lot has been done on schedule. Shanghai Shendi Construction Co Ltd today handed the two cleared land plots to the Shanghai International Theme Park Co Ltd, one of the resort developers, for construction.

    Shanghai Disneyland is expected to open to the public in late 2015. It consists of two themed hotels, a large retail, dining and entertainment complex, amusement facilities, an artificial lake, a huge parking lot and a public transit hub.

    I really really hope this won't be another cheapo Disneyland like the one delivered in Hong Kong!! HK is getting good now, but the 2005 version what the hack was that? The Main Street's been more exciting than everything behind the castle.

    More news from Shanghai Daily
    http://www.shanghaidaily.com/nsp/Business/2012/04/10/Disney%2Bdevelopers%2Bsecure%2Bsyndicated%2Bloan/

    THE developers of Shanghai Disneyland secured a 12.9 billion yuan (US$2.04 billion) syndicated loan with a number of Chinese banks for the theme park's first phase of construction.

    The deal was signed today in Shanghai as part of the city government's effort to advance the progress of some key infrastructure projects for this year. The Shidongkou power project also won a 4.8 billion yuan syndicated loan while a residential community project in Luodian, Baoshan District, obtained a 3.11 billion yuan loan today.

    A syndicated loan is provided by a group of lenders and is structured and arranged by one or several banks known as arrangers.

    Such loans have been increasingly used to fund the construction of major infrastructure projects.

    The Shanghai Bureau of China Banking Regulatory Commission has said major projects, other than real estate projects, with a funding scale of more than 2 billion yuan should seek syndicated loans.

    Globally, syndicated loans have become a key method in funding infrastructure construction and mergers and acquisitions, and it also provides a platform to connect banks and major projects in Shanghai, Vice Mayor Yang Xiong said today.

    The first phase of Shanghai Disneyland, scheduled to open in 2015 in Chuansha in Pudong New Area, will cost 24.5 billion yuan. Construction began last April.

    Here's some very concrete description of what's been done and what's going on on the site, right now. The source of this information is the People's Daily/Shanghai Daily: http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/90882/7781457.html

    Construction crews have almost finished grading the uneven land to prepare it for the large-scale construction in the next step. To reduce subsidence and create a safe amusement park, the builders have adopted a so-called vacuum-preloading method on the 1.68-square-kilometer plot.

    They divided the area into 44 parts and inserted pipes into the land to draw ground water. The builder compared the work to "doing embroidery" on the land and said it meets the standard of an airport runway. The land will not sink by more than 1 centimeter for at least 50 years, according to the builders.

    About 98 percent of the necessary soil has been removed to form the river around the theme park, and 84 percent of the soil of the future inner lake has been removed.

    Construction on Tanghuang Road and Hangcheng Road, the eastern and southern border roads of Disneyland, will be completed and open to traffic by the end of this month, the Pudong New Area construction authorities said yesterday.

    The Pudong government is responsible for the construction of 11 Disney-related road projects.

    The other nine projects, including the Shenjiang lane elevated road, a bus hub and the major entrance road, are expected to be completed by June 2014.

    The 11 road projects, which involve streets totaling 40 kilometers, will cost about 9.4 billion yuan (US$1.5 billion). A total of 492 households and 133 enterprises need to be relocated to make way for the road projects.

    SHANGHAI Disneyland will start taking shape in the spring, with work set to begin on attractions, government officials said yesterday.

    Preparatory work on the first Disneyland on the Chinese mainland began in April, with the theme park scheduled to open in 2015.

    This stage of the project is set to cost 29 billion yuan (US$4.6 billion), including the park, hotels and leisure facilities. Other stages are planned afterwards.

    Jiang Shujie, deputy director with the Shanghai Construction Commission, said nearly 3 billion yuan has been spent on preparatory construction.

    This includes building roads and drainage systems, as well as sightseeing and traffic structures.

    Preparatory work should be finished by the spring, after which builders can move on to Disneyland attractions, Jiang said.

    Work has begun on a 10-kilometer waterway attraction that will enclose the site. A 5-kilometer stretch is currently being dug at the northwest of the site, Jiang said.

    He added that two elevated roads connecting the site to the S1 and S2 highways are under construction and could open next April.

    A Metro link will also be built.

    Authorities have already revealed a rough plan indicating how Shanghai Disneyland could look, attracting great interest.

    Jiang said the bidding process for the detailed design had begun, but did not elaborate on likely candidate designers.

    The city said it has spent about 100 billion yuan this year on major government-backed construction projects.

    These were mostly aimed at upgrading traffic and other facilities to boost the local economy.

    Officials said there will be a substantial increase in next year's budget for similar work.

    Around 30 tunneling machines are currently at work in Shanghai, as the city builds more subway lines and other tunnels, said the construction authority.

    By 2015, the Metro network will have grown from 420 to 500 kilometers, said Jiang.
