The towering Art Deco residential complex on the corner of Maoming and Nanchang roads is The Astrid, also known as the Nanchang Building. Built in 1933, the building has eight floors and its distinctive, angled corner facade is enhanced by a vertical face at the apex. Consequently, with its Art Deco design and steel-framed windows, The Astrid was a stylish place to live in the bygone Jazz Age. The building is located near what was formerly Shanghai's most exclusive club, the Cercle Sportif Francais (now the Garden Hotel), which made it particularly popular with younger Westerners at the time.
