"Union Building" Shanghai Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Shanghai Things to Do: 1,087 reviews and 2,293 photos


The Union Building (on the right of the photo) at No.3 The Bund, was built in 1922 and was used by a number of insurance companies. The building is in Neo-Renaissance style with a symmetrical facade, but with some Baroque style details. The roof features an unusual domed corner pavilion. In 1997 a private equity fund from Singapore purchased the building, and in 2004 converted it to a "high-class" shopping centre, called "Three on the Bund".
