An exhibition that features 55 of the best urban renovation cases from every Shanghai district opened on Friday.

The exhibition is held at the Yangpu Riverside People's City Construction and Planning Exhibition Hall, a two-story steel-and-wood building on the former site of a British wood trade company, an example of the transformation of the city's cultural and historical legacy into space with modern functions.

The exhibited cases are focused on those transforming urban functions, improving residents' living environments, preserving cultural and historical heritage and upgrading infrastructure and public facilities.

Rich photo archives are presented alongside written introductions to the projects. All content is written in Chinese.

The exhibition hall is located at the intersection of Deshan and Anpu roads.

At the venue, visitors can leave their opinions and suggestions on urban renovation in Shanghai. Some of the suggestions will be put into practice by the authorities, according to the venue operator.

The legislature passed the city's first law on urban renovation in August. The law regulates the city's activities in improving its infrastructure and other public facilities, optimizing regional planning, providing better housing options for residents and protecting its historical and cultural heritage.

Ma Ren, vice director of the city's urban-rural construction and management commission, said the exhibited cases set excellent examples for coming projects.

"We will continue to take refined approaches to new projects, push for the participation of more market partners in the projects and make sure that all activities have legal backings," Ma said. "The focus will be to address residents' concerns and remove shortcomings in the city's development, while setting our sights on more inclusive transformations."

The hall is on 461 Anpu Road. Exhibition is free. From Monday to Sunday, 9am to 5pm, except holidays.
