88-year-old school to be moved

An 88-year-old school building is to be moved to a new location over fire hazards. The school is too close to other buildings which block sunshine in the classrooms.

The three-story French-style building is inside the Shanghai Qixiu Experimental Middle School on Sinan Road in Huangpu District. It abuts on the former residence of Dr Sun Yat-sen and is part of the Hengshan-Fuxing Road Historic Reservation Area, according to the Shanghai Planning and Land Resources Bureau.

It will be rolled on tracks to 32 meters southeast, then rotated 105 degrees clockwise and moved 13.5 meters northeast, according to the publicized plan.

The bureau is soliciting opinions from the public until December 18.

The whole school campus is now under renovation.
