Love it too, but when finished, they're gonna have to even out the dirty and cleaner cladding, at the moment there's clear difference.

Here's a better picture of Pudong in 1990:



(Pudong on the left)

There really was nothing there. I was in Shanghai in 1992 and remember Pudong being largely empty. They had already done mass demolitions in many parts in preparation for future construction. The Oriental Pearl Tower had already begun construction. That's all I remember going up at the time.

Incredible!! Does anyone have picture of Puxi/Renmin Sq in 1990 or earlier?

There are pictures of Pudong's devolopment at an exhibition in this park in Lujiazui:
