Date: 2012.11.05 Editor: Evelyn Shi

Shougang Group, one of China's largest steel makers, plans to invest 10 billion yuan to build an industrial-themed park on its former site in southwest of Beijing. The park, with the characteristics of post-industrial era, will be ready within five years and is expected to cover an area of 83 hectares.


Located on the site of a former factory of Shougang Group near the West Fifth Ring Road, it will preserve some of the factory's former facilities including workshops, chimneys and crane tracks. Among them is an exhibition themed Iron and Steel Melody, which has been ongoing since October 12. The gear wheels, nails and screws of the art pieces were made by the steel company.
