Remarks from the experts’ panel to guide the North Bund development

Wu Qiang, director of Hongkou District Publicity Department

“We need to tell more stories about the North Bund’s past, present and future to showcase more Chinese wisdom, charm and outlooks as well as the spirit and quality of the world-class parlor.”


Wu Jiang, vice executive president of Tongji University

“The ongoing urban renewal of the North Bund is expected to be the beginning of a new development pattern for the city. Urban renewal can never be done with a single mission but with eternal and continuous development.”


Cheng Jun, director of Hongkou District Urban Planning and Natural Resources Bureau

“The top agenda for the North Bund is to serve people with urban renewal while inheriting traditional culture.”


Li Jun, Party secretary of Beiwaitan (North Bund) Subdistrict

“There are still 15,000 residents living in the derelict residential houses on the North Bund. By 2022, they will be relocated to improve their living conditions while sparing additional redevelopment space for the region.”


Wang Ande, former general manager of the Lujiazui Financial Hub Development Company

“The new round of development on the Bund is another milestone in Shanghai’s urban development following the opening-up of the Pudong New Area three decades ago.”


Li Tiangang, a professor at Fudan University

“The North Bund represents the rich modern history of Shanghai and China. It is a truly original place for Haipai (Shanghai-style) Culture.”


Lu Jian, director of Hongkou District Archives

“Every building and every corner on the North Bund have their own stories.”


Lu Wen, director of Hongkou District Culture and Tourism Bureau

“Most part of the North Bund will be preserved during its redevelopment to retain the heritage of Hongkou.”
