Wukang Road武康路Wukang Road is a road in Xuhui District , Shanghai . It is known as the “Celebrity Road” that “condenses Shanghai’s modern century history”. There are 14 outstanding historical buildings along the route, and 37 historical buildings are preserved. On June 11, 2011, Wukang Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai was selected as the third ” Famous Street of Chinese History and Culture ” approved by the Ministry of Culture and the State Administration of Cultural Heritage

Wukang Road was built in 1907. According to the Records of Geographical Names in Xuhui District , Shanghai : “The road was originally named Fu Kaisen Road, named after the American Fu Kaisen surname. In 1943, it was renamed Wukang Road and was named after the old county in Zhejiang Province.” [1-2]  

In the late Qing Dynasty, Sheng Xuanhuai , a minister of the Westernization faction , was entrusted by Li Hongzhang to supervise the operation of Nanyang Public School (the predecessor of today’s Shanghai Jiaotong University). Equivalent to a 21st-century provost). After Fu Kaisen took office, in order to facilitate the travel of teachers and students, he built the road with his own salary. At first, there was no exact name. Later, because the French Concession was expanding its territory, it conflicted with the “Siming Office” of the Shanghai Ningbo Association. There were also conflicts with the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia and other countries. Fukaisen adjusted from it, and finally resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. In order to thank Fukaisen, the local people named the road Fukaisen Road. Since the professors hired by Fukaisen live in the urban area, it is much more convenient for teachers to go to work and school since the construction of this road. Therefore, it is highly praised by teachers and students. Wukang Road was originally a dirt road, with rice and vegetable gardens and farmhouses on sides, dense rivers and ponds, scattered with many graves. In 1914, Fukaisen Road was officially included in the French Concession, and Mintini, the first French consul in Shanghai, implemented the overall planning along Wukang Road in accordance with the most modern urban construction concept in the West at that time. This plan is gradually advancing to the surrounding area.

Wukang Road is 1,183 meters long and 12 to 16 meters wide. The whole road is curved and roughly runs north-south. From Huashan Road in the north, you can see Li Hongzhang ’s Lilac Garden, an important official in the late Qing Dynasty , and in the south, Huaihai Middle Road connects Tianping Road, Yuqing Road, and Soong Ching Ling’s former residence faces each other. On Wukang Road, where the phoenix trees are swirling, there are about 30 former residences of famous celebrities with a high “density”. The Spanish-style and French-Renaissance-style buildings along the route are very distinctive, making it one of the most European-style neighbourhoods in the central city of Shanghai.
