After probing into the shaping and urbanization of Jing'an District, Shanghai, the authors found that the urban space in Jing'an district was produced by comsuming the regional image which was changed from the high class residential district in suburb to middle class residential block and high-rank entertainment district since late Qing Dynasty. This is the result of two factors: one was land scarcity under the background of special political setting in modern China and the capital logic of land in semi-colonial Shanghai; the other was the desire and action of the middle class which was rising in Shanghai during 1920-1930th, to identify itself and its hierarchic characteristics by the spatial consumption, meanwhile, the dominant cultural image had played an important and positive role in the regional integration when Jing'an district was reconstructed after anti Japanese War. The image of Jing'an district as middle class residential block and high-rank entertainment district gradually covered (the) whole Jing'an district, even including the former Chinese part.
