This article makes a claim for a new kind of critical urban conservation position; the article explores the growing demolition of the old quarters of contemporary Chinese cities; specifically it is argued that whilst demolition appears like a quick way to free up economic dividends from the land, developers and place-makers are missing out on a whole world of hidden social, cultural and economic potential. Unpacking this position, I explore the actual practical and economic alternatives that exist within China’s older quarters; focusing in on Shanghai's Lilong's I explore the possibilities of intangible economic heritage within these rich and interesting spaces.
