    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Designed by L.E. Hudec in 1923 and constructed in 1924, the Normandie Building is a grand example of Neoclassical architecture inspired by the French Renaissance period. The red brick apartment building is particularly striking in its entirety. Over the years the lower two levels with a composite facade have been repeatedly repainted in colors including gray, white and even sky blue. A historically accurate renovation was completed before the World Expo 2010.

    Additional Location Information
    Huaihai Road Middle used to be the most fashionable road in old Shanghai. Formerly named Avenue Joffre in the early 20th Century, this 6-kilometer boulevard was likened to the Champs-Elysees in Paris, Fifth Avenue in New York and Ginza in Tokyo. This lovely apartment located in a historical building is a treat for any travelers.

    Wukang Road lies in the northwest of Xuhui District and belongs to Hengshan Road-Fuxing Road Historical and Cultural Landscape Zone. Wukang Road adjoins Middle Huaihai Road in the south and Huashan Road in the north, extending 1,100 meters in total. Built in the late 19th century, Wukang Road is one of the oldest roads in the western part of Shanghai.

    In the 1930s, the layout of the road was established and the architectures along the road were basically constructed. On both sides of the road, there are 11 buildings under protection and 37 historical architectures, which are representative garden-style residences of the modern Shanghai. Many celebrities, incl...
