Baiszhizhou, is, in my humble opinion, the most awesome part of SZ, it is near Window of the World, which has malls etc. It contains higher end residential buildings (in which I live) and of course the urban village, which is the best place to go for a beer . There are, however, still a lot of wasted spaces where development could take place. This tabula rasa however... please let it be drastically re-envisioned.
Hey Wessel, I live in Baishizhou too, and have given groups tours of the urban village (ha, no joke!). I also know of groups that are trying to preserve the urban village culture and memories before they bulldoze it down. I'll PM you so we can be in touch.

As much as I love supertalls and modern development, I also like the older more "organic" neighborhoods. Looking at the map there seems to be plenty of land where a project of this size could be built without disrupting existing residences. Newer developments don't seem to capture any of the coziness of the old neighborhoods.
