Living Shanghai

Grosvenor in Shanghai

Grosvenor entered mainland China in 2004 with the opening of our Shanghai office.


With a small but dedicated team we have successfully managed and disposed of a number of value-add residential investment projects in the city, including Chester Court at Gubei, Belgravia Place at Hua Shan and Grosvenor Place at Lakeville Regency.


In 2013 we made our first office investment in China in Shanghai, acquiring a small section of Shui On Plaza, a Grade A office building located in the prime Huaihai Road business district.


We are currently looking for mixed-use development opportunities in and around the city, with a view to creating high-quality long-term investments through co-investment partnerships.

My Shanghai

A personal view by Brenda Chung

"If you look at the development and growth of Shanghai over the past 20 years, the difference is extraordinary, and I very much look forward to being a part of this next chapter in the city's history"

Grosvenor's city insights

  1. The home of xiaolongbao

    Xiaolongbao, or steamed soup dumplings, are popular all over Asia, but those from Shanghai, where the dumplings are said to have originated, are perhaps the best.

  2. Old with the new

    Nowhere combines old Shanghai with the new quite like Xintiandi. The area has become a cultural and lifestyle hub, and is a wonderful example of a "living cities" approach to redevelopment.

  3. The Bund

    Featuring a myriad of different architectural styles across its 52 buildings, a stroll along The Bund offers exceptional views of the Pudong skyline.

A prime investment destination

A 2014 report by the Urban Land Institute and PwC ranked Shanghai second in terms of city investment prospects in Asia Pacific, behind only Tokyo.
