Park, campus at innovation forefront
May 15, 2019
Many of the city’s old factory buildings have been granted a new lease of life as innovation parks to support the city’s goal to become an innovation center with global influence.
Zhangjiang E-Park, covering about 100,000 square meters in the north of the city’s major innovation engine of Zhangjiang in the Pudong New Area, is a great example of how to revive a dying factory complex and make it a great place to live and work.
The site at 899 Dangui Road used to host an LCD-manufacturing factory, but it failed to keep pace with the rapidly growing market and the property was sold in 2014. Last year, renovation work was completed and the innovation park opened.
