Likely more a product of the rendering and not the reality of what will go up there. Fingers crossed.
I mean it's definitely a project. I'm sure it'll be better than the rendering but don't expect it to be much more urban than it looks. Positive news is that's 168 condos and all full means a few hundred more people living there than today. They will have ground floor business space so that's good.

The one thing I'd hope for based on the renderings is good landscaping. My wife's parents place in the outskirts of Shanghai doesn't have any restaurants unless you walk 10 minutes, and it's suburban... but it's landscaped really well with zen gardens and stuff around. It's still suburban but not in a depressing way.
