Shanghai - undeveloped

Some shots of a not yet redeveloped area in downtown Shanghai. Shots are older (2005), but on a recent visit (Jan. 2008) I noted it's still same...

Fangbang Road (方浜路) is a narrow road in Huangpu District. Parts of the street in the vicinity of Yu Yuan are developed for tourism as "Shanghai Old Street" (上海老街).
These are the (currently) undeveloped parts of Fangbang Road, from Henan South Road (河南南路) to South Tibet Road (西藏南路).

Chongde Road. Roadside snippet. At the time the shot was taken (April 2005), this area was already scheduled for redevelopment - looks same in 2008, only the clothes have changed . (Shanghai, Luwan District, Chongde Road - 上海, 卢湾区, 崇德路)

You'd love this - and yes, it is Shanghai:


2003 - Shanghai, Jiading District, Waigang Town (上海市,嘉定区,外岗镇).
Geotagged on flickr. A little north of the new A30 expressway - area scheduled for industrial development, remains unchanged yet (but the boat is gone ).


2003 - Shanghai, Nanhui District, Wanxiang Town (上海市,南汇区,万祥镇).
Geotagged (and huge size for viewing) on flickr. Area scheduled for industrial development since 2003, remains unchanged yet (but not for long...).

Of course Shanghai is not yet developed.
Shanghai restarted developing in 1992, its impossible to get rid of all these old buildings within just a bit over 10 years. You can even see the same thing in downtown Manhattan. To be developed, it has to meet either two:
1. The whole nation becomes developed or at least closes to developed
2. All Chinese cities become developed.
The last two pics you posted Jiading & Nanhui, they are more than 30 miles/48 kms away from the city.

That's the so-called heritage that certain people don't want China to redevelop. Once they all are gone, those guys will feel so depressed, they wont be able to take pics that demonstrate that China is poor, etc.

I love these pics too anyway. I can't imagine how 99% of Shanghai looked like this just 15-20 years ago. Those areas look weird now, but they were average just one decade ago. They help us to appreciate the big change.

Sure I can post these pictures - because it is in fact Shanghai. No need to SHOUT (capitals). Shanghai is a city of great contrasts - dilapidated old buildings just beneath shiny skyscrapers are a common view. Same applies to HK and NYC...

If you believe this is a place only to show the shiny beauty of a city or to present just your national pride - then you are in the wrong place.

Feel free to post pictures of dilapidated buildings and/or poor people in NYC in the US section. But do not forget to credit the photographer / the image source.

yes,your are kind of right, this website is called "skyscraper", off course i can put a lot of shiny beauty photos, people are always like to show the good thing, do you konw in westen countries more than 90% people still does't know well about China, some people are still asking "is China has ice cream?" "is China has KFC" "where is Beijing"!!...., if you show the photo of something and people will think it is, and if you only show the pool photos, people will think whole China is like this, balance is very important. DOOG+BAD=REAL THING.

Shanghai should not tear down the old buildings. Sure some of them are in disrepair, but there are tons of nice old buildings that would look great with a fresh coat of paint and some new interior designs. Take it from me I live in a house built in 1930 on Huaihai road.

If they should tear down anything, its the ugly commie-blocks.

very cool. Even in Seoul (Korea), I discovered old (often dilapidated, tin-roofed) sections--some quite close to skyscraper clusters--in the downtown area.

Shanghai has a lot to offer when it comes to cultural heritage and a great market for infrastructure. I hope in the coming years that they develop it but not to the point of globalization.

Every city has big differences between rural and urban area, and the larger the city is, the bigger the difference is. Even US has the same situation.
