Shanghai Xintiandi

Located in the heart of the city, Shanghai Xintiandi is a two-square-block retail, entertainment, office, and cultural destination that blends modern and historic architecture. The North Block consists of restored and rebuilt historic courtyard homes serving as shops and restaurants, while the South Block is largely modern in style and construction. As one of the first projects in China to utilize older structures, it stands in contrast to current patterns of development that emphasize new construction. Xintiandi presents a new model of adaptive use and historic rehabilitation that is influencing the way government officials and real estate developers throughout China view old neighborhoods and buildings.
