Pengpu Xincun renovates housing, caters to the elderlyRenovation of old houses

Pengpu Xincun is among the first group of workers’ communities in Shanghai, which had witnessed the glory and pride of several generations of model workers by that era.

However, after more than six decades, the houses have become old with multiple problems, such as kitchens and bathrooms being shared by several households, dilapidated houses and leaky roofs. The residents have a strong desire to renovate the old houses.

Since 2005, the Pengpu Xincun Subdistrict has explored different methods, from renovating single buildings to forming a renovation system for the entire community, to answer the residents’ call for improving the housing conditions.

The renovation of the Pengsan community was divided into five phases. The first phase mainly included the community’s expansion and renovation, while the next four phases were about demolition and reconstruction.

The project also created several “city firsts” — the second phase was the first “demolition and relocation” program that allowed residents to move into a house rebuilt on the site of their demolished house; the fourth phase was the first “demolition and relocation” program that rebuilt high-rise buildings with elevators; and the fifth phase of the project was agreed to and signed by all residents.

In March 2022, the residents moved back to the community and into their new homes.

In the renovation project of the Pengyi community, which has a large number of households and a complicated situation, 40 dilapidated multi-storey houses will be transformed into a residential complex on the same site, with 17 buildings of eight to 19 floors, with elevators.

A two-storey underground garage with nearly 1,700 parking spaces will be built, along with many facilities for improving residents’ quality of life.

Over the past 18 years, Pengpu Xincun Subdistrict has renovated 102 houses, benefiting 4,907 households.
