Media complex in Xuhui

A Series of old docks and factory buildings along the Huangpu River will be preserved and converted into a cultural and media complex in Xuhui District, the city government said yesterday.

An elevated pedestrian bridge will be built to link the various office buildings, hotels and other venues of The West Bank Media Harbor project, the government said.

Ninety-six historic buildings remain along the river and 33 have been preserved, including a cotton factory, oil refinery and power plant. The former sites that were home to the earliest industries in the city have been turned into fashion centers and creativity parks.

Minsheng Road Dock, which was built in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) to handle grains and sugar, will be redeveloped along with the old workshop of Shanghai Shipyard, built around 1864.

Old tower cranes, rails and anchor piles will be kept within the green areas and public spaces.

The former Shanghai Cement Factory in Xuhui and the surrounding area is being transformed into a cultural and entertainment complex named Dream Center.
