Shanghai is being built in Detroit for Transformers 4.

For Transformers 4, there’s going to be a scene where the Transformers destroy Shanghai. Maybe. The details are a bit sketch right now. However, the set for Shanghai is being built nonetheless in the Motor City.

Building for the set started back in June (older photo of set beginning construction), and there’s been all kinds of news about it (Mlive, Chicago Tribune, Detroit Free Press).

Here’s some photos I’ve taken (not bad for a $30 phone btw) of the progress to date.

So yeah, this all may be destroyed by the Decepticons.
