Is this sentence ok? Or waht would you say? I have been working somewhere for a long time and they are shutting down the place. If I say like this; "I gave this place my life." Is it ok? Or waht would you say?

It's fine. But it's a bit dramatic.

Your way is OK, or we might also say , "I gave my life to this place".

That would work... you could change the word order for emphasis - I gave my life to this place! The following would be less proper (slang like): This place is my life! (present tense) or after the shutdown - This was my life (past tense).
