Character, charm, comfort and convenience define the former French Concession and its residential living possibilities. Spread over the three districts Huangpu, Jing’an, and Xuhui within the city’s downtown core, this area offers homes for just about anyone’s needs and taste.
Quiet side streets such as Gao’an Road and Hunan Road offer a more intimate neighborhood ambiance, while Middle Huaihai Road and Hengshan Road provide urban chic with nightlife and other entertainment just around the corner.
If you like being in the center of this major metropolitan area’s hustle and bustle, as well as wanting the convenience of nearby culture, nightlife and other social amenities, as well as financial and government facilities, then the former French Concession is for you.
Former French Concession apartments are very popular among expats. The majority of residential property here is represented by lane houses (old terraced housing from the 1920s to 1930s), Art Deco Apartment buildings, garden villas, and a few sprinkled condominiums in high-end compounds. Lane houses come in all sizes and prices, ranging from modest studios, to spacious multi-bedroom houses with two to three stories. Condos usually have at least two bedrooms, and the scale goes up to ultra-luxury penthouses.
