The Head office of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council and Municipal People’s Committee was a typical work of artistic architectural style at the beginning of the 20th century.

By the end of 2020, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognized the complex as a national-level architectural and artistic monument.

The recognized area was on the main building block on Le Thanh Ton Street which was built from 1898 to 1909, excluding the building block on the basement of the former 213 Dong Khoi apartment. During the French colonial period, the head office was named Hôtel de ville. Its façade combines various European styles such as Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, and Art Nouveau.
