    他心中有了一个绝佳的选择,那就是沪上市滩湾18号那栋著名的全玻璃幕墙建筑

    More specifically, I'm having trouble with this part: 沪上市滩湾18号

    Thank you for any help you can offer!

    He had an excellent option in mind; it was Shanghai's beachside number 18th's floating stock xyz

    Unfortunately, the only context is that the MC is looking for a place with a big reflective surface, and this 沪上市滩湾18号 fits the bill

    [It was the well known Number 18 house by the beach that had fully glassed walls infrastructure that was being marketed in Shanghai.]
    Hehe~ I tried~

    Edited: apparently the Hu means Shanghai so in Shanghai I guess

    Google translate:

    He has an excellent choice in his heart, that is, the famous all-glass facade building on the 18th beach in Shanghai.

    this is what I got about the sentence in question :

    Shanghai-listed Beach Bay No. 18th

    the shangshi mean just hit the market (meaning new things?).
    might be wrong tho.

    I think 沪上 is the name of the city (市). 滩湾18号 is the location of the building.
