The McBain Building, built by George McBain as a combination office and apartment building, housed for many years the North China office of Asiatic Petroleum, which had been established in 1903 as a joint-marketing operation by Shell and Royal Dutch. The top floor was added in 1919. Shell was forced to leave China in 1966 but returned, in 1970. The building now houses the Pacific Insurance Company.
