Note(s)The Cathay Land Company, after the success of the Cathay Mansion and Grosvenor House, built some walk-up apartments faced Rue Cardinal Mercier with boutiques at street level. The rents for these low-rise units were lower and they were a very convenient and popular address, being directly opposite the Cercle Sportif Francais and a few doors away from the Amateur Dramatic Club's "Green Room" bar, which was a popular daytime rendezvous in the Lyceum Theatre. Nowadays the Grosvenor House, the Grosvenor Gardens and the Cathay Mansion belong to the Jingjiang hotel complex.
