Day Seventy-five: China Rising

Construction along the Huangpu River in Shanghai

Construction along the Huangpu River in Shanghai

Construction of high-rise office buildings and luxury apartment complexes continues unabated in China’s cities. In the 5 months that we have lived on the Pudong side of the river we’ve witnessed five buildings rise out of the ground, along the riverfront; this construction site is home to the sixth. The real estate bubble in China appears to be rising faster and higher than any I witnessed in the USA; not sure what it will look like when it bursts.
