Virtually every European power set up shop in Shanghai prior to the Japanese invasion . Americans and Japanese also had/took chunks of land around Shanghai . Shanghai really wasn't all that important until around the 16th century . Well , important is a relative term here but in any case it wasn't until foreigners kicked in the door that Shanghai became any sort of international city . For better or for worse , foreign influence in Shanghai has made it into the city it's become . It's also served as something of a refugee camp although nobody ever bothered to ask the Chinese how they felt about it .

To get an idea of what kind of influence various global powers have had in Shanghai , watch a movie called Empire of the Sun .

you should see the difference in the view from the other angle - of the Puxi side of the river, which is a sea of thousands of highrises.

None of these were about in 1990:

So many buildings were needed (and still needed) to house the ever-increasing population of Shanghai.

^yep, housing 10,000 newcomers a day by the mid-noughties, and still going strong, and building more highrise space (mostly residential of course) than all of Manhattan's office supply each year. That's why it has over 4,000 highrises now and counting.

I think there are still 40 meters to build before reaching 300m.

Where did you get those numbers from? no offense, but that sounds hard to believe

The city's population increased about 7 million during the last decade, so that means an average 2000 newcomers each day.

How many people would live in 4000 highrise units I wonder.
Would anyone have any idea.

I don't know how much units and people there are in those residential towers but I do know that in China the units are much smaller and there live much more people in the buildings than in residential highrises in the US or in Europe.
