LUOHU District will soon launch a brewery art block that integrates sightseeing, exhibition, digital creativity, as well as leisure and entertainment, which is the first of its kind in the city, Shenzhen Evening News reported Saturday.
The block represents one of the district’s ambitions to create several cultural blocks with Luohu characteristics, drawing references from the advanced experience of domestic and international cities.
The brewery art block will retain unique industrial symbols and beer culture, integrate fashionable and cultural elements such as e-sports, Chinese fashion and talk shows, and provide immersive experiences using high technologies such as augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) and 3D.
Xue Jiang, head of the district’s culture, radio, television, tourism and sports bureau, said Luohu will also plan to build major cultural and sports facilities such as themed museums, science and technology cultural centers, and cultural and music theaters through urban renewal projects.
According to Xue, the first phase of Yuehai Sports & Leisure Park is expected to be fully completed by the end of this year, and the second phase will be completed next year.
Upon completion, the park will be connected with the existing Luohu Sports & Leisure Park, covering a total area of 370,000 square meters, the largest of such parks in the city.
Meanwhile, Luohu Gymnasium is about to undergo an upgrade to help make up for the district’s shortage of comprehensive sports venues.
A cultural and leisure belt around Donghu Park is also taking shape in the district, with multiple cultural and sports facilities as well as scenic spots integrated as a whole to host various activities.
Additionally, Luohu has recently started preliminary work on the renovation and upgrading of Luohu Art Museum and the site selection of a new culture and art museum.
Luohu also aims to build a world-class visual effect creative industry innovation base and a pioneering urban area of digital creative industry. At present, the district is formulating supportive policies and action plans for the development of digital creative industries, which will be released in the near future.
