“It was surrounded by shanty homes, but now it looks classy.”

A three-story building located in Yutong Road of Jing'an district returned to life recently after renovations, Shanghai Morning Post reported Wednesday. The building used to be part of Si'anli. It previously was renovated for households and shops and had become the highest building in that area. Zhou Lin, an enthusiast of Shanghai history who used to live nearby, said that the building is a landmark of the former Zhabei district. It is expected that the renovated building will be available for commercial use from September 2018.
