Beijing Unveils Plan to Transform Vacated "Steel City"
  ·  2019-02-15  ·   Source: Xinhua News Agency

The Beijing Municipal Government has published a plan to transform a vacated industrial site in its western suburb into a city landmark by 2035, as part of the preparation for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

The new area, on the basis of the Shougang Park, a former steel plant relocated to neighboring Hebei Province in 2010, covers an area of 22.3 square km, according to the plan released on February 13 by the city's development and reform commission.

"Building on the existing facilities, we will create a distinct community composed of museums, industrial incubators and leisure facilities," said Hong Jiyuan, Deputy Director of the commission.

Sports facilities including a ski site and a training center are under construction in the park for the Winter Olympics. The facilities will be used after the Games to host international events and exhibitions, according to the plan.

Beijing is also building more lakes, forest parks and waterscapes in the area to create an eco-friendly demonstration space.

Shougang Group will cooperate with enterprises both at home and abroad to rejuvenate the old industrial area, said Wang Shizhong, deputy general manager of the company, adding that Beijing's first 5G network and an artificial intelligence industrial park will be established there.
