Fascinating!

The largest slaughterhouse in Shanghai back in the 1930s. Today it is a shopping complex with boutiques, restaurants, dance studios, etc. If it is completely occupied, it would be a place to chill. Now I believe people go there for photography as the structure of this building is unique and original. Take Line 4 to Hailun station. Exit 2 into Hailun Road then turn right into Shajing Rd. This interesting building will be right in front of you!

Old building beautifully revitalised

The old slaughter house has been beautifully revitalised to a venue of art and culture. The internal structure has been well preserved. Good place for taking photos.

Great architecture but really rude staff in the dog cafe.
Jan 2020 • Solo
The actual place is well worth a visit but my experience was totally ruined by the terrible attitudes of the staff (particularly the manager) in the dog cafe who presumed I couldn’t speak Chinese because I’m not a native. They took over an hour to serve me a slice of cake when it wasn’t even busy. Very disappointing.

This was actually the largest abbstoir in Asia

Originally this structure, across the street from the old power plant (both are architectural gems) this was the slaughterhouse through which all the meat that fed a growing Shanghai came to pass. Now it is a subdivided structure housing everything from restaurants and offices to the Ferrari Owners Club, as well as a Theatre where stage productions are staged on the top floor. Worth a visit.

The Beauty of Concrete
Nov 2019
Very unusual building with unique internal shape and form; a gem for photography. Now the shops inside do detract from viewing the place and taking photos from an architectural viewpoint but definitely best to use it for something than just let it be a mausoleum

Just so so

I heard a lot about it, so I went to see what's what and I was not impressed. Yes, the story behind it is interesting, but of course, the first thing you see is a Starbucks, which has a few shops. It could be a location for a photoshoot, but still, you are limited with space since there are some distractions.

Would be nice but isn't
Oct 2019
The architecture is great, or was great. We came here after seeing awesome photos from the internet. But the place is now cluttered with product launches and trendy shops. So that pure grey concrete look is gone. We walked around for a bit. It is still cool that the sky bridges link up the inner and outer circular corridor like a maze but not as impressive as it could be.

I wouldn't say this is a must see.

Intricate Marvel of Architecture
Jun 2019
One of the highlights of the Shanghai trip. Head there to observe and have a number of snapshots taken in a strange piece of architect art. It's called Millfun, but outside of China it is known as a slaughter house. Now it holds offices and small galleries. I wish more cafeterias on top of the building were open. Also, the small gardens there need some care. They crave for human touch but it is left to fend for itself. /sigh
