Shanghai: then and now.

21 May

Shanghai has undergone radical urbanization in the last 30 years. The Pudong New Development Area project began in the early 1980’s, and soon after the city skyline was forever changed. Below you will find a photo of Pudong pre-redevelopment, circa early 1980’s before any major construction commenced.

In 1995, the Oriental Pearl Tower was completed, becoming quite an architectural focal point for the new district.

And below is the Pudong skyline we enjoy today. It is still very much a work in progress, and the passing years continue to bring taller and more advanced buildings.
