The article offers information on the repaving, building, leasing and restoration on the Bund, a mile length of Shanghai waterfront in China. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Bund was the epicenter of power, style and decadence.

However , now the 21st-century Chinese government has triggered an overhaul project of the Bund.
