Baroque Palace is comprised of one grand, 20-storey apartment building and eight free standing townhouses. In total, it has 60 well-designed apartments. Its features include security and a nice lobby with concierge service. The building’s elegant and clean-lined look makes it an ideal match for the nearby classic-style homes and charming, tree-lined boulevards.
Based within the Former French Concession area of Xuhui, Baroque Palace is situated in one of the city’s most idyllic areas. A high number of expatriates live or visit the area, as it’s home to consulates (including the consulates of France and the US), cafes and eateries, local boutiques, and historic sites. It’s also within walking distance of Hengshan Road (bars, restaurants, cafes, etc.), and it’s less than 2 kilometers away from the Xujiahui Commercial Area.
Baroque Palace is located in the commercial, fast-paced district of Xuhui. Alongside Huangpu District and Jing’an District, Xuhui District is one of the city’s major affluent urban districts. Known for its history as an academic and religious center, gorgeous tree-lined streets in the Former French Concession area, and an endless array of shopping and dining options, Xuhui has remained as a long-time favorite of expatriates and locals alike.
Once owned by the Xu family, Xuhui’s Xujiahui area (the heart of the district) became engraved in time when one member, Xu Guangqi, rose to become the country’s most prominent Catholic convert and, in cooperation with his foreign counterparts, translated influential texts between Latin and Chinese. Over time, the area became known as a Catholic stronghold and a center of learning, as well as for its ties to the neighboring French Concession. Although much of the area was repurposed for industrial purposes in the mid-1900s, a 1990s development project has revived the area and transformed it into a major commercial area.
Today, Xuhui District is home to a number of key roads and sites, including: part of Huaihai Road, part of the Former French Concession area (shared with Huangpu), Shaanxi Road, Wukang Road, Fuxing Road, Shanghai Stadium (IKEA nearby), Panyu Road and Jiaotong University. It also borders Huangpu Creek, includes the South Shanghai Railway Station and the Inner Ring Elevated Road (an expressway), and provides for easy access to Huangpu, Pudong, Changing, and Minhang. As a central district, the area is well supported by the city’s expansive metro system, and some areas can be even be reached by bike or on foot.
Located on Jianguo Road,in downtown former french concession, close to American and French consulates, approximately 1.6km north of the Xujiahui Commercial Area, and walking distance to Hengshan Road (bars, cafes, restaurants).
