Renovating 100-meter-long noisy and dirty streets, adding 6,000 square meters of green space and 4,000 square meters of livable fine gardens and opening 24-hour and shared city bookstores, the Sanlitun Subdistrict in Chaoyang District of Beijing is undergoing a transformation, which implements the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) to make people have a sense of happiness, gain and security.

At the north side of No. 42 south building of Beisanli Community in Sanlitun Subdistrict, a city bookstore is being renovated, taking the place of bars. Tang Yongtao, an officer of Sanlitun Subdistrict, introduced that the city bookstore is expected to be completed by the end of this month, covering an area of about 260 square meters, and a 24-hour bookstore with an area of 700 square meters will also be built next to the city bookstore.

“Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said in the report of the 19th CPC National Congress that abundant nourishment for the mind should be provided to help realize people’s aspirations for a better life. So we are making efforts to follow this direction,” said Tang with a smile.

With an openness and sharing design concept, the city bookstore will provide the services of reading, cultural activities and lectures to nearby residents and teachers and students of Beijing Sanlitun No.1 Middle School. In the future, the bookstore together with renovated bar streets will build the Sanlitun Subdistrict into an international fashion and culture block.

“Now the environment here is much better than before,” Tian Liming, a resident from Beisanli Community who has lived in Sanlitun Subdistrict for more than 50 years, said happily. “We feel the life is getting better here and many old neighbors have moved back as there are no dirty streets, illegal buildings or overhead wires but newly rendered buildings, widened roads and added green belts.”

“We have never thought that we can have a garden for walking at the doorstep, but now here it is. The garden is really good and we truly like it,” a resident surnamed Lin said.

The warmly-welcomed garden is called “Yushe” and it is located at the east side of Sanlitun Road. It was used to be a backup nursery garden and the gathering place of bicycles and later it was transformed into a fashion and healthy community garden. This nearly 2,000-square-meter fine garden is made up of three different parts with children’s slides and modern-style art spaces.

In addition, there is another newly-built community garden named “Yixinyuan” at the north end of the bar street. Once occupied by tables and chairs of bars, the garden was built into an antique Chinese garden with flower beds, pavilions, bridges and water landscapes.

It is learned in the future, the Sanlitun Subdistrict will invite top international design teams to give an overall design of the Taigu business district, bar streets and embassy area, which highlights regional characteristics and urban landscapes.
