These buildings will disappear because the property is just too valuable to leave them. For the moment, however, the government has cooled the housing market by imposing a 20 percent resale tax. If you want to see what this block will look like in the future you can just go to the City Planning Museum off People’s Square in the Puxi side of Shanghai. A 3D model shows not only the buildings that are already done, but also those planned for the future. These buildings will all be torn down.
