The art deco apartment building that sits on the corner of Hengshan Road and Gao'an Road is Washington Apartment, built in 1928. The facade was originally painted yellow but later changed to light green. The white trim around the windows and the variety of designs around them are heavily influenced by the art deco style. After 1949, the building's name was changed to West Lake Apartments and in 1982 another two floors were added. The building is listed among Shanghai's Excellent Contemporary Architecture and protected by the Shanghai Municipal Architecture Protection Agency.
