2 more state firms build offices at Expo site

THE former World Expo site in Pudong is fast becoming a hub of corporate headquarters and today two more state-owned enterprises broke ground there for new office buildings.

Beijing-based Sinochem Group and China Changjiang National Shipping Group will build two buildings, 70 meters and 50 meters high respectively, in Zone B of Expo 2010 and move their operation centers there by 2015.

"The 18.72-hectare Zone B aims to become the world's top-notch corporate headquarters zone," said Ding Hao, president of Expo Development Group and chief planner for post-Expo development of the site.

The zone which used to host the Australia and Thailand pavilions will house the headquarters of at least 13 state-owned enterprises, including Baosteel and State Grid. About 28 buildings will be put up there using environment-friendly materials, Ding said.

These buildings will be connected by a 410,000-square-meter underground parking lot. Metro Line 13 will also have a station in the zone.
