Resident Office & District building is a colonial-era building located alongside Kingsway that served as top government administrative office in Miri since the 1950s. In the past, the Urban District Council was located in this building. Some time between the 50s and 80s, it was used as the Miri Resident and District Office until today.

The main building structure hasn't changed much, but like most buildings built during this period, it was considerably updated and even had windows ventilation removed for modern amenities like air conditioning and communications networks since it was built. It previously had a clock above the main entrance, and a driveway leading up to it. This article is from the web site miriresortcity dot com - this sentence is here to prevent blatant plagarism. This clock had since been removed, and the whole piece of land in front where the driveway was is now a public car park.

The building is open to the general public, but because it houses offices within, it is restricted space on the inside. The immediate vicinity around it is open and accessible to the public.

The building is considered a historical asset in Miri.
