News: New Red Town Being Built in Changning

Red Town 2.0 will open in 2022

Plans for a Red Town-esque creative park in Changning District are being set into motion. Upon completion in five years time, it will house art galleries, a sculpture center, and boutique stores.

 

A new project titled Red Town 166 is slated for construction on 166 Hami Lu. The area previously housed a budget hotel, factories, and company-affliated housing. District officials have confirmed that the new downtown cultural site will focus mainly on the arts and creative industries; plans include a sculpture center, art galleries, offices and boutique stores. It will be accessible via Metro Line 2 Beixinjing Station.

 

The original Red Town on Huaihai Xi Lu saw the Shanghai No. 10 Steel Factory successfully converted into a buzzing hub of exhibition spaces, galleries, cafes and offices. Unfortunately, it was shut down earlier this year to make way for urban development. The new Red Town 166 will similarly preserve most of its current buildings and structure. The operator of the old Red Town will also be in charge of this new project.

 

Construction is slated to begin by year end; it will be open to the public in about five years time.
