The original is fine.

Could this be poorly written:
( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City#Urban_settlement )
"The City also underwent massive construction during the 1960s and 1970s."
I find it weird to read that a place underwent construction. But "a place underwent renovation" sounds okay to me. "undergo repairs" also sound okay to me. Could the example be wrong?
Would it be okay to write:
"The house underwent construction."
"The company underwent a founding."
Constructing a house causes the house to exist, just as a founding of a company causes the company to exist. Yet, a house could undergo construction, but a company cannot undergo a founding.
