Xuhui opens international community

Shanghai’s first International Neighborhood Center was launched in Xuhui District yesterday as the latest pilot project in the city’s ongoing urban renewal campaign.

The 45,000-square-meter neighborhood center at the Caohejing High-tech Park aims to become a one-stop community service center for nearby residents and employees. It will integrate culture, sports, dining, babysitting, art exhibitions and other services.

The center is expected to drive the Caohejing park into a scientific innovation zone from a manufacturing industrial park, said Fang Shizhong, director of Xuhui District.

Fang unveiled the center at the first Urban Renewal Seminar along with architects taking part in urban projects in Xuhui. The seminar, organized by Jiefang Daily and the Xuhui government, discussed how to drive Shanghai’s future development through urban renewal projects.

The center is the latest demonstration of “an ideal unit of a future city,” the main topic of the seminar, said Fang. It will work with dozens of other smaller neighborhood centers across Xuhui’s subdistricts, towns and communities to offer services for residents.

Last year, Xuhui District invited professional architects to redesign old neighborhoods or conduct small revamping campaigns for street corners, abandoned old buildings and less-popular public spaces.
