Oh, let me count the ways:

-Extremely noisy and crowded (people and traffic).
-It's the best district to get pick-pocketed in.
-Outside of the main intersection and few nice side-streets, it's pretty trashy-looking with terrible architecture, busted-up sidewalks, and very little landscaping.
-Xujiahui Station is a dank, stinky, sweaty chamber overloaded with people cramming to push ahead of you wherever you go.
-Roads like Nandan Lu are amongst the ugliest in Puxi. Actually, parts of Xujiahui remind me of parts of Pudong and Beijing (wide boulevards lined with gated apartment blocks).

I know some people that like Xujiahui, but it's definitely my least favourite area in central Puxi.

Actually what I've seen on Google maps, pictures and China's own streetview, Xujiahui seems to be among the more denser areas in Shanghai. It seems quite walkable with some shops here and there with not too wide streets not counting the wide streets crossing the main Xujiahui intersection. The side streets seem to have trees lined on the summer it looks quite cosy together with the nice highrise areas surrounding you.

How do we know which is the actual proposal that's actually chosen. I haven't seen any official word or new source that states that's the actual chosen proposal.

Please, some1 shed some light on this?

Which is the final design now? Would be pleased if someone could post recent renderes, so we can update the first post here!

There's no official final design yet but this is the most recent post on gaoloumi.com and likely to be the final one.

It's a long proposed project. The official only says it will commence this year.

Yep and it astounds me that a few think that Pudong is all of Shanghai on the architecture forums

New design? They didn't credit the source, then it could be fake.
