Beijing 2022 breathes new life into old industrial site


Located in Shijingshan district in western Beijing, Shougang Industrial Park was originally a production base for Shougang Group, one of China's largest steel makers with a 100-year history. While Beijing becomes increasingly concerned about the environment, the steel-making enterprise, which generated great pollution for decades, in 2011 relocated to Caofeidian, a district in Tangshan, North China's Hebei province, leaving huge industrial relics in the capital.

After Beijing's successful bid for the Winter Olympics in 2015, the vacated quarter got an opportunity for transformation -- it would house the Winter Olympics Organizing Committee.

Over the past years, the dull industrial buildings have been reborn as a hub for the Winter Olympic Games, carrying all the Chinese people's dreams.
