Located at Sheung Wan, the Urban Renewal Exploration Centre (UREC) was opened in August 2009 providing students, community organisations and the general public with urban renewal information, including the problem of urban decay, process of urban renewal as well as the mission and work of the URA. Subsequent to the promulgation of the new Urban Renewal Strategy in February 2011, the UREC has undergone a facelift and was furnished with more multimedia facilities, aiming to inspire visitors to approach urban renewal issues from various perspectives.

The UREC also serves as a platform for the teaching of General Studies, for primary-level education, and Liberal Studies, for secondary-level education. The centre presents a real-life experience of dilapidated housing; interesting exhibits; a green corner; multimedia games and an exchange area.
