China is ever-evolving as open land turns into cities and villages turn high rise apartments.
Baishizhou is a neighborhood that will soon be knocked down, demolished and be rebuilt into high priced apartment buildings.
This place is special because it is an affordable area where most recent college graduates move to.
To many, it's their first sign of independence and adulthood.
Some move there and just live there well into adulthood.

Excellent pictures that capture the the mood of the Baishizhou neighborhood. Honest, hard working people trying to get by in a difficult situation. My concern is what will happen to them? Thank you for sharing these pictures.

Those alleys are nuts! The kids look happy and carefree though!

In regards to affordable housing, it seems prices are going up in most major cities in the world.

No need to worry about them. These people will become instantly rich. The government gives them some $ and depending on the amount of money their apartment is worth, they will get a few apartments. They will become instant millionaires overnight. The only thing is where will the recent graduates go? Do they just stay at home longer? How will that change the culture?

Thanks. I assume they will get the financials to tide them over until the new apartments are available. Sounds kinda like our eminent domain. Although the current neighborhood is rough, much character will be lost.
