- Describe a new change that happened near where you live

- And explain how you feel about this change
I’d like to describe a new change that has taken place near where I live. The change is a new shopping center that has been built near my apartment. It*s not very far, around ten minutes by foot. The new shopping center is a big one, with 5 floors. There you can find various garment stores, restaurants and a huge supermarket.
Well, before it was completed, there was no shopping centers around the neighborhood, and there were some abandoned old houses where the shopping center is now. Then about two years ago, those houses had been knocked down, and I saw construction workers working there day and night.
Well, like I said, there were no big shopping malls before, so the local government might think it necessary to build one to improve people’s quality of life. I think a new shopping center would bring a lot of convenience to the people in this neighborhood. Instead of traveling a long distance to the city center, the people can now just walk for a few minutes to get their shopping done.
I definitely feel positive about this change. Now my family can have a new place to go if we want to eat out or just find a place to take a walk. But at the same time, I fear the traffic may become worse in the area because this shopping center will attract people from other neighborhoods to come for shopping. Obviously, no one wants to get stuck in a traffic jam or line up outside a restaurant.
