Jinlin Road to be protected

SHANGHAI will list the Jinlin Road commercial street and shikumen lane houses on the city's historic register for better protection.

Jing'an Temple and South Suzhou Road will also be added to the list, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

As one of the busiest commercial streets of old Shanghai, Jinlin Road features many southeastern-style terraces.

However, many of the facades were damaged since they were not protected, the report said.

The typical Shanghai-style shikumen lane houses will be preserved once they are listed.

The buildings will not be allowed to be demolished. More detail regulations are being worked on.
