City unveils plan for post-Expo use of riverside venues

SHANGHAI government today announced its plan for the use of the 6.68-square-kilometer Expo Site and welcomed public comments and suggestions.

According to the six-part plan, the Expo Village which provided accommodations for the Expo's foreign staff will be turned into an international community in next five years.

The core area where the Expo's five permanent buildings stand – the Expo Boulevard, Expo Center, Expo Theme Center, China Pavilion and Expo Cultural Center (now called Mercedes-Benz Arena) – will serve as a business hub for exhibitions and conferences.

The Houtan area is reserved for future development, according to the plan.

Buildings in the Urban Best Practices Area in the Puxi section of the Expo Site will be retained as recreational venues. The former Jiangnan Shipyard will house a number of museums.

The Huangpu River banks along both sections of the Expo Site will open to the public for leisure activities, as the plan shows.

People can go to the Shanghai Bureau of Planning and Land Resources website,, to make a suggestion.
