Xin Tian Di

xintiandi barLocated at the City Centre of Shanghai, and only one block south of the prestigious Huai Hai Zhong Road and its Metro station, Xintiandi is an affluent car-free shopping, eating and entertainment district of Shanghai. Covering an area of 30,000 square meters and a gross floor area of 60,000 square meters, Shanghai Xintiandi features a multitude of specialist F&B, retail, entertainment, cultural, recreational, commercial and residential facilities in restored "Shikumen" houses.

Xintiandi means "New Heaven and Earth", and is considered one of the first lifestyle centers in China. The success of the project could have even greater impact as a role model for historical redevelopment not just in China, but across Asia. Considered as “new landmark” of Shanghai - replete with fashionable glamour and modern elegance, Xintiandi aims at providing a platform to nurture Chinese designers and allow them to communicate with world-class international designers. The building represents modern Shanghai history and culture. However, with the development of the city, the formerly glorious Shikumen gradually faded out the historical stage as it could no longer satisfy people's demands of residence.
