Shanghai’s Xuhui district centers around the high-rise downtown hub of Xujiahui, from which it takes its name, known predominantly as a shopping destination.

Dynamic Xuhui forms an expansive, historic, central area where Eastern and Western cultures blur. It has a metropolitan buzz and boasts a large waterfront, important cultural attractions, historic heritage buildings, and tranquil parks. It covers most of the former French Concession, which has a great café culture and charming houses. 

Former industrial riverfront land in Xuhui is being turned into a buzzing cultural quarter, known as West Bund, with art galleries, new parks and master-planned neighborhoods. Meanwhile, smartphone maker Xiaomi is building its headquarters in the Xuhui’s Binjiang area in the south, while e-commerce firm Alibaba has recently acquired two plots in its West Bund area.

Across Shanghai, home prices are showing signs of recovery, amid China’s slumping property market and financial woes. This year, it’s been one of only four cities in China (along with Chengdu, Beijing and Hefei) to return to growth following declines in the past 12 months, according to from Shanghai E-House Real Estate Research Institute.

“Shanghai’s high-end residential market is underpinned by demand from local residents who want to trade upward for better homes. In addition, there is stronger, significant demand from high-earning, non-local workers,” said Sherril Sheng, research director at JLL’s China residential sector. “The pandemic has generated more upgrade demand as residents are looking for larger living spaces in better residential compounds with qualified property management.” 

Boundaries 

Xuhui district is one of Shanghai’s central urban areas, with 12 sub-districts and two townships covering its 21 square miles. 

The district’s boundaries are not easily defined by just four roads, but roughly the Middle Ring Road runs along its west edge while Shaanxi Road and the Huangpu River form its eastern side. It has Huaihai Road along its northern edge and the Outer Ring Road is part of its southern boundary.

Xuhui, which has a population of just over 1.1 million, has a large number of historic mansions and high-end residential developments, including standalone houses and apartment blocks, Ms. Sheng said.

In the north of Xuhui lies the French Concession, which refers to an area that was French-ruled from 1849 until 1943, when it was signed over to the Japanese during World War II. It is generally considered the best part of town and has “preserved neighborhoods, with standalone and lane house properties and low-rise homes dating back hundreds of years,” said James Macdonald, head of research at Savills China and who is based in Shanghai.

In the south of Xuhui, “we are seeing large-scale redevelopment and a new commercial district emerging as well as high-rise residential developments,” Mr. Macdonald said. In general, high-end residential projects in Xuhui are popular among home buyers. Shanghai Bay is an example of a sought-after luxury residential compound by the river.

In recent years, the Xuhui district has been relatively short of new supply due to the scarcity of land for development within the Inner-Ring Road, Ms. Sheng said.

Price Range

In Xuhui, historic heritage properties can go for between RMB 200,000 (US$27,800) and RMB 250,000 per square meter. Homes in new luxury residential developments, meanwhile, are roughly RMB 100,000 to RMB 150,000 per square meter, Mr. Macdonald said.

Prices are on an upward trajectory for second-hand residential sales in Xuhui district over the past seven years. They have increased from RMB 40,380 per square meter in January 2016 to RMB 67,088 per square meter in August 2022, according to the same data.

Most people prefer to buy rather than rent, but renting is getting more popular. About 30% of Shanghainese rent, according to recent estimates. “Those who rent might be waiting to purchase the right first-hand property or are temporarily transferred to Shanghai for work reasons and are attracted by a certain lifestyle associated with some high-end rental properties,” Mr. Macdonald said.

What Makes It Unique

Xuhui has a central location and a range of cultural, historic, natural and shopping attractions and nightlife spots. Investment in its riverside area is bringing new life through urban renewal projects. All of which make it a vibrant, modern, dynamic environment in which to live.

“Xuhui has the added benefit of having heritage buildings which are highly sought after, as well as a new commercial district to the south, creating jobs and demand for new housing, as well as the accompanying urban regeneration and city beautification that goes along with it,” Mr. Macdonald said.

Xuhui’s former French Concession has pretty, tree-lined streets and elegant European-style buildings. It has the tourist haven Tianzifang, a shopping and dining enclave, notable for its unique Arts and Crafts design. And Wukang Road, which has many protected historic buildings in diverse styles and has been called Shanghai’s equivalent of Paris’s Saint-Germain des Pres, referring to its low-key wealthy residents.

The 200-acre Shanghai Botanical Garden has many rare orchids and a bonsai garden.

Notable Western ones include Stone Sal, a high-end American steakhouse with deep leather and wood interiors and industrial accents; Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire (The counter of Pierre Gagnaire) at the Capella Hotel, which opened in 2005 and has a traditional bakery and patisserie; Sushi Matsuno is an “omakase” Japanese restaurant, which means trusting the chef to order for you; and Yuzuru, which offers kaiseki dining, a traditional form of Japanese eating which means a multi-course Japanese dinner.

Who Lives There 

Many of Xujiahui’s residents work in its retail industry and a growing number work for tech and media companies in the area. 

Mr. Macdonald noted that there probably is a number of notable residents living in the former French concession location, but they like to keep a low profile.

“Xuhui is popular with tourists and expats who are drawn to its cafes, restaurants and tree-lined avenues,” Ms. Sheng said.

Outlook

“At the moment, prime and central locations such as Xuhui tend to be doing better than suburban markets, given the slowing economy and more plentiful supply in suburban districts. High net worth buyers tend to be more resilient and view core markets as being more stable and a better store of wealth,” Mr. Macdonald said.

In Shanghai, “the total inventory levels are relatively low while transaction activity in the second-hand market has held up relatively well while the first-hand market [new build property market] has been a bit quieter due to a lack of new supply in recent quarters,” Mr. Macdonald added.
