Thats probably because Pudong is the main financial area and the buildings in Pudong are newer. Puxi has some nice buildings too though.

I'd say Puxi has some awsome buildings too, especially the non glass-box/tower type, and Puxi buildings on average interact with the streetscape in a much more friendly way than Pudong towers IMHO.

I think Puxi adds great contrast to the main skyline. I sure Puxi has its fair share of good buildings as well even though the area is starting to look a little tired.

That probably why IFC Mall is so empty............. Or is it because it mainly sell high end products?? Superbrand mall on the other hand is quite crowed even on week days.

What? The Bund is quite well-kept and looks anything but tired.

High-end malls are not designed to be crowded like a wet market, although that ironically is not true in Hong Kong these days.

I was not refering th the bund but the area where all the shops are. I think it really needs a good clean up.

Nowadays high end malls are generally pretty crowded in Asia and i thought that with the high end market in China picking up, the mall would not be so empty.

Woah! Very nice i love that angle even though Jinmao is totally blocked by the IFCs. IMO it would have been perfect if IFC was built a little to the left, even if that means making the century avenue curved.

Places Nanjing Road, Huaihai Road, People's Square are certainly not tired. Indeed there are deep pockets in the old concessions that still need to be gentrified, but a good city needs a degree of chaos and dark history as otherwise it'd just be sterile, and people don't like sterile places.

I agree that Huaihai Road and Peoples Square are not tired. But Nanjing road in my opinion esspecially towards the bund side looks tired. Maybe its because of the old historic buildings being the same colour.............I think Xintiandi is a good example on how they should preserve history.

Yes - I look at 'tired' being run-down, not old. Historic areas are not necessarily tired at all. Generally, I think Shanghai has kept its history fairly well. It brings a lot of diverse cityscapes that stimulate the visual senses.

Not really. China levies huge taxes on luxury goods, so the wealthy ones go overseas to get these things, such as Hong Kong, Paris, and Milan.
