Arcadia consists of three separate high-rise apartment towers; two with individually-owned apartments and one with fully-serviced apartments. Arcadia encompasses a site area of 160,000 square feet, with a gross floor area of 640,0000 square feet.
In the serviced residential tower, all units come fully furnished and equipped with hotel like additions, such as an iron and ironing board, a safe, and more. The appliances are modern and high-quality and include an oven, washing machine, etc.
The décor features a somewhat dated design aesthetic, as well as a color palette that favors shades of tan and brown. Nonetheless, each apartment has been well maintained and everything is in great condition. The rooms are spacious and well-lit, and on the upper floors, the views overlooking Jiaotong University, Xujiahui, and the Former French Concession are amazing.
The residences were developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties are still today managed by the Group’s property management team. Services include housekeeping, concierge, and security. The premium onsite facilities include: a gym, pool, reading room, children’s playroom, table tennis room, yoga/zumba room, and a sauna. There is also a tennis court, though usage requires an additional fee (largely due to the lights).
Arcadia is located in the commercial, fast-paced district of Xuhui. Alongside Huangpu District and Jing’an District, Xuhui District is one of the city’s major affluent urban districts. Known for its history as an academic and religious center, gorgeous tree-lined streets in the Former French Concession area, and an endless array of shopping and dining options, Xuhui has remained as a long-time favorite of expatriates and locals alike.
Once owned by the Xu family, Xuhui’s Xujiahui area (the heart of the district) became engraved in time when one member, Xu Guangqi, rose to become the country’s most prominent Catholic convert and, in cooperation with his foreign counterparts, translated influential texts between Latin and Chinese. Over time, the area became known as a Catholic stronghold and a center of learning, as well as for its ties to the neighboring French Concession. Although much of the area was repurposed for industrial purposes in the mid-1900s, a 1990s development project has revived the area and transformed it into a major commercial area.
Today, Xuhui District is home to a number of key roads and sites, including: part of Huaihai Road, part of the Former French Concession area (shared with Huangpu), Shaanxi Road, Wukang Road, Fuxing Road, Shanghai Stadium (IKEA nearby), Panyu Road and Jiaotong University. It also borders Huangpu Creek, includes the South Shanghai Railway Station and the Inner Ring Elevated Road (an expressway), and provides for easy access to Huangpu, Pudong, Changing, and Minhang. As a central district, the area is well supported by the city’s expansive metro system, and some areas can be even be reached by bike or on foot.
