These older buildings will soon disappear because the property is just too valuable to leave them. In some years, the government cooled the housing market by imposing a 20 percent resale tax. A model can be viewed to see what this block will look like in the future. It is displayed at the City Planning Museum near People’s Square in the Puxi side of Shanghai. The 3D model shows not only the buildings that are already done, but also those planned for the future when these buildings are all torn down.
