Now an affluent entertainment district of Shanghai, Xintiandi underwent major redevelopment, during which about 3,500 Shanghainese families got displaced. The urban renewal is considered one of the first examples of the place making approach China has taken in the recent years. Xintiandi is home to some of the most expensive apartments in China, some of them costing more than Tokyo, New York and London. After the old Shanghainese lilongs get demolished, there is only a 3D rendering, a dream of what is going to happening in the future, erasing all physical memories of the past.
