Underpasses for Lujiazui area

HAVING already taken to the air, planners are going underground to make the Lujiazui financial zone more pedestrian-friendly.

Overhead corridors linking the zone for pedestrians will be joined by five underpasses, with work set to start at the end of this year or early next year.

The subterranean links will connect the Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai Center, which is under construction, and two future shopping malls.

These five underground passages will include 24,108 square meters of commercial facilities that will include stores and restaurants.

In addition, another planned underpass connecting the Super Brand Mall and the Shanghai International Finance Center is currently awaiting approval.

"The Lujiazui financial zone has 150,000 white-collar workers and we need to satisfy their transport and recreation needs," said Liu Wei, an official with the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone Administration.

Most white-collars leave Lujiazui once they finish work, crossing over to Puxi for socializing, due to limited leisure facilities in the zone.

To improve facilities on offer, Lujiazui plans more restaurants, bars and shopping malls in the riverfront area.
