Oldest prison in China to become offices

China’s oldest prison is to be the focus of a large adaptive reuse scheme, local paper China Daily announced today. Located in Shanghai, Tilanqiao is a 358,000 sq ft prison dating back to 1903 when it was used to hold those convicted of crimes in Shanghai’s International Settlement.

Due to the rapidly increasing population in Shanghai, the Tilanqiao Prison is considered to be a very valuable asset and has therefore been targeted for a major commercial venture. According to local reports, plans are to adapt the facility into a multipurpose complex for business, culture and commercial office units.

Chairman of the district committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference told China Daily: “The Tilanqiao Prison will become a lonely island in the area and influence the image and investment environment of the North Bund if it remains.” A date for the redevelopment is yet to be revealed.
