, the capital of Sichuan province, had never seen anything like the luxury of The Waterfront apartment complex until a Singaporean developer brought it to town and cashed in on the province’s property boom, writes Jeremy Hurewitz. But The Waterfront’s pools and putting greens are in stark contrast to traditional areas like Old Horse Road, where a handful of die-hard residents – some willing to shed “fresh blood” to defend their properties – hold out against the wave of development amid the rubble of their obliterated neighborhood, reports Erik Mobrand.
