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.

威海路696的所有者已经把它卖给静安投资商。这意味着每一个人——72位艺术家以及创意工作室要在2011年3月底搬出威海路696。

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.

这里被规划重建696为一个新区域——连接静安别墅的“新天地”。

I have no comment on that!
