The social security bureau who owned the building on 696 Weihai Lu sold it to the Jing'an investment company. Everybody, that means about 72 artist and creative studios have to move by the end of March 2011.


It is planned to renovate 696 into a new creative cluster and connect it to the Jing'an Villas Lane aria next to it to create a new Xintiandi.


I have no comment on that!


I thank you all for making stage候台BACK@696 such a special spot in Shanghai for the last past two and a half years.


stage候台BACK has lot's of upcoming projects in mind and will for sure continue in a different place in the near future.


It will be a prosperous year 2011 and I wish it for all of you as well: a happy new 2011.
