Why not? people came via the street to go to the Apple store.

A very easy reason - it is connected directly to the subway station, so people don't even need to step out to the street to get to the mall. Hence, in the photos of street-level that have been already posted, notice there is actually very little pedestrian activity. This contrasts greatly against the Puxi shopping areas.

I agree! IFC plays a pretty big role in shanghai's skyline in terms of height and visibility.

Well, they're quite overshadowed by much taller neighbours, Oriental Pearl, and the big neon screens in buildings along the waterfront that scream for attention.

But that is great for selling its image, the street level entrance really catches a lot of eyeballs, especially with the pearl tower in the background of those pictures. Apple has another store in Puxi and will open a third one in Huangpu district soon, so they could afford using the Pudong store as a promotional flagship store.

Yes I notice this too. However, I do find this trend is mostly evident in cities like Vancouver, Sydney, Melbourne, etc etc, but not much in United States. I don't go to China often so I don't know what it's like in Chinese cities.

Yup i see a lot here in Auckland too. Chinese in cities you have mentioned are mainly new migrants and keep there "Asian" identity where as in US i guess there are a lot of old Chinese migrants and they are blended into the Wedern society.
