it would be a shame if they demolish those "older" parts of Shanghai to build scrapers there.

It is a so cool contrast!

great pics from whisky.

looks to me like the building site isn't particularly safe- the safety/ falling objects netting doesn't look very in tact! i wonder if there will be any fatalities. still, i'm sure it can't be worse than dubai!

Not really, these aren't historic parts that are worth keeping around. These are just disgusting commieblocks built in the 80's and 90's. The more of these they demolish, the better. Across the river, there are quaint little neighborhoods that are worth keeping but I say that commieblocks should be 80% eradicated (keeping some would add character)
