A new neighborhood center at the north community of Jiangqiao town, Jiading district of Shanghai, recently started its construction, with a view to provide local residents more convenient services, local media reported on March 30.

The project includes a five-story building and covers a combined floor area of over 9,000 square meters. It is expected to complete construction by 2017.

The center will house service areas for community affairs, culture and sports facilities and other supporting equipment. It aims to enhance communication among local residents and offer them a place to relax and pass the time.

When it is completed, the center will recruit about 100 staff members, to give local residents better services.

Officials said that the project is a significant move to improve the town's public service system and enrich local people's cultural life. It is also in line with local government's plan to create a better living environment for the residents.
