Coming Down Alert – Kunming Road Update

Posted: July 1st, 2011 | No Comments »

Following on from my post last February about the destruction of just about the last older properties along the eastern end of Kunming Road (formerly Kwenming Road) those, once well appointed, houses are now gone so you’ve missed them. Two new parking places though so yippee!! The developer there is Baoland building new high rises and a shopping centre (apparently yes, we do need more of both!). As I noted in my previous post on Kewnming Road it was on the edge of the old Jewish ghetto and once home to any number of Chinese and Jewish refugee families and businesses.
