I got to the top of the first row of the buildings to take some photos of the Chengshan Road, and Jinzun Road area. About 5 years ago, there is nothing in this area. The both roads didn’t not exist, and the area are occupied by farm land, and village. Here is what it looks today.
Along with the building of Paris Spring department store, and the restaurant section, the chain restaurants followed quickly. Here are the stores appeared there:
- Ajisen Ramian
- Dairy Queen
- Papa John’s
China is starting to be like US – the same brands combination replicate to many places. If you are go to another residential area, it is likely to see the same combination of brands, sometimes with the same order. Pudong is more like Puxi now.
This is also part of the urbanization that wrap out the whole China these days.
When I moved there 4 years ago, there was barely anything. Dramatic changes on both the street view and the house price…
Yes, it’s really a big change. I remembered 10 years ago, when I first came to Pudong, there were only a few of tall buildings in Lujiazui. Now they have many skyscrapers like Jinmao Tower and World Trade Center.
