Topping the list of Shanghai’s best compounds is City Castle. Located in the central district of Jing’an and designed by a team of Taiwanese developers, City Castle was created with a Western-aesthetic in mind. A small collection of gorgeous white villas sit near the entrance, but the apartment buildings that make up the bulk of the compound are equally luxurious and well-maintained.
Lush greenery, small ponds, and well-manicured bushes saturate every inch of outdoor space. City Castle’s greenery rate is, in fact, over 40%, giving residents the sense that it’s a natural oasis in the heart of a cosmopolitan city. The five-star club house is beautiful and well-run, with an indoor pool, gym, meeting areas billiards room, yoga room, an indoor kids’ play area, and more. The staff is professional, polite, and always willing to go that extra step.
The location is ideal as well. It’s an easy 12 minutes’ walk to (Line 1/12/13) Hanzhong Road metro station and about a 15 minutes’ walk to (Line 2/12/13) West Nanjing Road metro station. Popular areas, such as People’s Square, Jing’an Temple, The Bund, Xintiandi, Lujiazui, and the French Concession are all within easy reach. Line 2, in particular, connects to many of these sites, in addition to the Hongqiao Railway Station, the Hongqiao Airport, and the Pudong Airport. Conveniently, the North-South Elevated expressway is just a few minutes’ drive away, making for an easy connection to the city's further out locations.
For daily life, the immediate area has everything you could possibly need, including grocery stores, dining and shopping areas, health centers, cultural and educational sites, and more. The nearby Shanghai Centre and HKRI Taikoo Hui Plaza both house City Shop, a high-end international supermarket. ParkwayHealth, where patients can see an English-speaking doctor, is also located in the Shanghai Centre.
The Wujiang Pedestrian street, which runs alongside the West Nanjing Road metro station, has a range of international retail shops include H&M, Uniqlo (Japanese clothing brand), Sephora, Olive Young (Korean health & beauty store), Innisfree (Korean cosmetics brand), etc., and its available dining options range from fast-food to health conscious.
