Building of garage near site questioned

THE Minhang District government will unveil the results of tests today on whether an underground garage excavation in the South City community caused nearby apartment complexes to tilt, according to Beijing-based

Monitoring data last Friday showed the four buildings, where a brief evacuation occurred last week, shifted 0.1 to 0.7 millimeters and tilted at up to one ten-thousandth of a degree, which was inside the normal range, said Lu Guohua, director of the district's housing quality supervision station.

The district's construction and transportation commission said a construction mishap caused buildings in the complex to sink.

Community residents filed a petition with the Shanghai Letters and Complaints Office yesterday, asking for an appraisal report on the buildings' construction security by an official organization.

Householders weren't satisfied with a brief written report they received earlier from their residential committee, which quoted the Shanghai Research Institute of Building Science as saying the buildings were safe based. The report was not chopped with an official seal.

In the petition, householders asked the South City Hotel, which is building the garage as part of renovations, to cease the project and compensate them.

Residents said the hotel went ahead with the garage despite a petition by them opposing the project in 2008.
