Merlin announced this all this week (alongside that state visit to Manchester of the Chinese president)

Aaaanyway, I decided to have a look around some old-but-still-stickied threads, stumbled across this one, and decided to check if there were any more news. And lo and behold, there is! And it's only four months old!

CONSTRUCTION OF ONE OF THE LARGEST LEGOLAND PARKS IN THE WORLD EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN 2021​

Merlin Entertainments today announces that it has entered into a formal co-operation agreement with the Shanghai Jinshan District Government, CMC Inc. and KIRKBI to develop a LEGOLAND® Resort in the Jinshan District of Shanghai, China. This follows the signing of a framework agreement in November 2019, announced as part of the China International Import Expo.
Under the terms of the agreement, all parties will form a joint venture company and contribute funding to the construction and development of LEGOLAND® Shanghai. The total project investment is expected to be approximately $550 million. Construction of the project is planned to start next year, and the Resort is expected to open in 2024.
LEGOLAND® Shanghai will be one of the largest LEGOLAND® Resorts in the world and will incorporate a 250-room fully themed hotel on opening. World-leading creative, design and construction teams will work together to create an immersive theme park, drawing inspiration from famous scenic spots in Shanghai, Jinshan District and the town of Fengjing. It will be located in the Jinshan District in south west Shanghai with a two-hour catchment of 55 million people. The region comprising Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui has an estimated population of 220 million.

Lol the last post in this thread occurred 16 days before I joined the site. Talk about a bump.

Not really one for Legoland parks but it certainly looks promising.
