1154–1170 Middle Huaihai Road 淮海中路1154–1170号
General contractors: A. V. Kooklin & Co.
Built in 1938-1939.
As the Hanray Mansions began to rise in 1938, it was called "Shanghai's swankiest apartment house, lowest rent $550 per mensem." The rents were to increase progressively according to the floor. For the construction, "Europe, England and America have been combed for the latest thing in fittings, and the service will be super-perfect."
The construction took longer than anticipated, so the owner R. M. Joseph fired the firm Davies, Brooke & Gran and engaged Atkinson & Dallas to oversee the completion of the building.
