Not Ready — Yuanmingyuan Road

Less well-publicized, perhaps because it doesn't look like it'll be finished in time for its scheduled Expo unveiling, is the renovation of the so-called Back Bund or Waitanyuan area. More than a dozen historic buildings on Yuanmingyuan Lu and neighboring Huqiu Lu (formerly Museum Road) -- that's immediately west of the new Peninsula hotel, and just south of Suzhou Creek -- are currently undergoing restoration.
