Shanghai, China – New Toodou.com office on the Suzhou Creek (close to People’s Square)
Originally uploaded by Marc van der Chijs.
Toodou.com keeps on growing, and our current office is getting too small. In the next weeks we plan to hire about 10 extra staff, and therefore we will move our office to an old warehouse on the Suzhou Creek. The location is great, close to the subway and about a 10 minute walk to People’s Square.
The building is called Si Hang (Four banks, as it used to be a warehouse for 4 banks). I learned that it the building is famous for a battle that was fought here during the Battle of Shanghai in 1937 (the Chinese army fighting the Japanese invaders). There is even a museum in the building (on the 7th floor) about the battle. Should you ever plan to visit the museum, feel free to come by. Our office will open by mid- to late November and is at the far end of the 5th floor.
