The Broadway Mansions is a 19 floor apartment house in Shanghai, located near to the confluence of Suzhou Creek and Huangpu River, as well as the northern end of The Bund. Built by P & T Architects and Engineers Limited, the building was completed as "Broadway Mansions" in 1935. It was renamed Shanghai Mansions by the Shanghai Municipal Government in 1951, but reverted to its original name after China opened up again to the West. The Broadway Mansions now is a four star hotel.
