If HK has it, so does Shanghai ;)

One thing I noticed when I was in Shanghai are major HK urban developments sprouting around the city. It's not just commericial but also retail. Major HK chains such as Watsons, Tom Lee Music, Lane Crawford, etc. have their own stores in Shanghai and so are fast food chains like Cafe de Coral.

Here are some examples

Times Square

HK


Shanghai


IFC

Shanghai

There are also HK chains in other Mainland cities and Macau. Likewise I'm sure there are some Mainland companies operating in Hong Kong. Almost all cities have some presence in another city. This has been the case for a long time. It's called globalization... and if there's money that can be made, business transcends boundaries.

That's very true. But I find it surprising to see an IFC development happening in Lujiazui. And the development is impressive and will enchance Pudong's skyline.

Shanghai IFC is being built by the same Hong Kong company that built the HK version. Here's the construction thread I created in the Development section :

With Hong Kong being the premier model of China, it only makes sense that Hong Kong's chains expand into the vast market of China, and China's growing cities emulate the very successful model that is Hong Kong.

This, of course, is a mixed blessing for Hong Kong. It provides many opportunities for Hong Kong in the short run, but may be harmful in the long run, and for someone thick with Hong Kong pride, Hong Kong's unique identity is slowly eroding away.
