Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street extended to 800 meters
Latest Updated by 2007-03-16 09:52:58

Approved by the Guangzhou Municipal People's government, the eastern section of Dishipu Road has now become a 24-hour pedestrian section. The total 24-hour pedestrian sections of Shangxiajiu Street have been extended to 800 meters, making it Guangdong province's longest pedestrian commercial street, with the most arcade buildings and the most "Time-Honored Brands of China".

At present the commercial area of Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street is 220,000 square meters, said Hu Aidong, Deputy Director of the Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street Management Committee Office. However, in the future it will be constantly expanded. The Jade wholesale maket and the Crystal wholesale market will be included; then the completion of a super-mall, invested in by Li Ka-shing, by the end of next year will further extend the commercial area; Baohua road and Datong Road may become 24-hour pedestrian roads when the time is ripe; with the completion of the Hengbao Plaza and the four-star Shipu Holiday Inn in the future, a big consumer paradise focusing on shopping, leisure activities, entertainment and restaurants will be formed.

There are many Time-Honored Brands on Dishipu Road, such as Quxiang Cake, Lin Heung Tea House and Taotaoju shop, and the unique Xiguan style arcade buildings have been kept, said Kuang Jianming, Vice Chairman of the Guangzhou Commercial Pedestrian Street Chamber. This section brings many cultural elements to Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street.

Mr. Hu said, "The municipal government has proposed to gather all Time-Honored Brands in one place; and the first choice is Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street. The proposal is now under discussion. If it is passed, Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street will become a home for Time-Honored Brands. "
